DescriptionSharkey's 3D Pool is one of the earliest 3D cue-sports games, featuring a fully-rotating table and variable viewpoint allowing for much more realistic shot-playing than the traditional top-down game style (although the game can be played this way instead). The pace, spin and angle of each shot can be set up precisely before playing it. Both 8-ball (pot your seven colors plus the black to win) and 9-ball (pot the 9-ball with a shot that also hits the lowest remaining ball, whatever that may be) are included.
There are seven skill levels to work through. A trick-shot mode is also included, with 20 pre-set shots. Prior to each match it is possible to bet on the outcome.

TriviaThis was one of the games under development for Firebird when MicroProse bought the label and its IPs. However, they chose not to continue with the intended tie-in license with pool player 'Maltese' Joe Barbera, perhaps feeling that he was not well-known enough (pool is not a big spectator sport in the UK, with snooker much more popular).
