Description

NES-P3-USA
Play 8-ball or 9-ball in tournament mode. Winning requires beating all 32 opponents without any losses.
Play 14.1, 8-ball, 9-ball, 3-ball, equal offense, or speed pool in challenge mode.
Play 14.1, 8-ball, 9-ball, 10-ball, 15-ball, 3-ball, speed ball, rotation, straight pool, equal offense, or one pocket in party mode. Party mode has no AI players and is intended for 1-8 human players.
Play in freestyle mode. This is intended for practice, but also a full pool table simulator. Balls can be placed or moved anywhere at any time. Inotherwords, any type of pool game can be played with any number of players just as if they were using a real pool table; they only need to keep score themselves. Use a turtle rack if desired. This mode can even be used for trick-shot competitions but limited to shots using balls and table only (nothing fancy with cue sticks, the butt of a stick, chalk, the rack, pocket rims, nor riding the wall). Essentially, this mode is every pool game ever created plus any the player makes up.
