Advertising Blurbs - Wii:
    Lunar Pool takes the historical ball game of billiards and reinvents it with a unique and futuristic flair. The rules are simple. All you need to do is use your cue stick to hit the white cue ball, causing it to hit the other numbered balls and make them go into the pockets. You can enjoy nearly unlimited game play with 30 tables, 2 different ball arrangements, and the ability to change the degree of friction on the table. You can also play against a computer or another human player, so try challenging someone once you’ve got the hang of the game.

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.
    • Precision graphics

    • Eight levels of power
    • 255 levels of table friction

    Try your skill: challenge yourself, another player or the computer.

    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?
