Back of Box - NES (Australia):
    Lunar Pool is the first advanced home video billiards game ever. Never before has the player been able to choose among sixty different "tables". Jump around to your favorite, or master each stage consecutively. Your score is kept automatically. You set up the electronic cue stick, aim the cue ball, choose the power you need and shoot! Then watch the ball ricochet around the "table" and land in the pocket. Learn to be a "hustler" by mastering all sixty stages.

    BECOME AN ELECTRONIC HUSTLER

    This is it! The biggest billiards game in the universe: Sixty different tables to run, eight levels of power, 255 levels of table friction. Choose your opponent--yourself, another player or the computer. As you approach the table, all eyes are upon you. The room hushes as you take your electronic cue stick, methodically set up the shot, choose the power you need... and shoot! The balls ricochet rapidly off the cushions. You sink three with the first shot. What a Hustler!

    GAME PLAY: With sixty tables to choose from, you can name your game. Or accept each new challenge as it is presented. Sink a ball and your score equals your game rate, times the number of the ball, times ten points. Your rate increases by one point with each ball you sink. It can add up fast. But take careful aim. Fail to sink a ball after three consecutive shots and you lose a cue ball. Loose all three cue balls and the game is over. Think you can run a table? How about all 60 of them?
