Description from the packaging.

Introducing Virtual Snooker. The ultimate 3D snooker simulator.

Now you can enter the world of Virtual Snooker with six-time world snooker champion Steve Davis. Like its best-selling cousin Virtual Pool, this snooker game is so real Interplay guarantees that it will improve your actual snooker-playing skills. Your mouse interfaces directly with the cue for realistic control. Hit the ball from any angle or direction to generate English, follow, draw or a host of trick shots. You'll even learn snooker techniques and tactics with the snooker tutorial starring Steve Davis and featuring Ronnie O'Sullivan.

"I never thought a computer simulation could capture all the subtlety and variation of a real snooker game. I've been proven wrong. I'm hooked." - Steve Davis.


  • Full-motion video library includes a 30-minute snooker tutorial including Steve Davis' legendary 147 break.
  • Easy multiplayer modes make it fun to play a virtual opponent, challenge a friend or play on two computers via network or modem.
  • Take a walk around the table, look left and right, zoom in for a closer look, then line up your shot like you would on a real table with Virtual Snooker's realistic 3-D perspectives and graphics.
  • The direct cue/mouse interface has all the feel and control of the real game. Ease back gently for a soft touch, or stroke hard for a double rail bank.
  • The advanced simulation model provides the most realistic snooker game ever with all the true ball movements, angles, swerve shots, close-ups and spin shots of real snooker.
