The main objective is to cross different USA cities and reach the predetermined scores to go ahead. But remember: you'll have only 16 balls and every error can be lethal!

The game also comes with modes for 2 players with two variants: 2P Pocket Game (the traditional mode) and 2P 9-Ball Game, where the premise is to sink 9 balls before the other player makes them first. If you prefer, test your target in Trick Game or even hear your favorite song in Jukebox.

After each stage completed (and some luck), a bonus stage will appear, as well as the chance to earn extra balls. You will only need a good target in the parquet block!


Side Pocket Game Boy 9-Ball game start: when preparing a shot, the "ghost ball" line marks where the white ball will go. The other balls are converted to numbers in order to make your planning easier.
Side Pocket Genesis Select your favorite music to hear and relax in Jukebox!
Side Pocket SNES When "SUPER" appears, the white ball starts to flash and when hitted, it strikes the other balls with extreme power and speed!
Side Pocket Game Boy Sinking a ball in the pocket maked with a star will give you bonus gifts.
