Play Snooker Tournaments against fast thinking and intelligent computer players.
What is snooker? Snooker is the ultimate cue sport challenge, played millions around the world, particularly in the UK, the common wealth nations and China. Snooker tables are 3 to 4 times the size of pool tables with smaller pockets(!) so require great skill to master! Luckily, the game is a little easier than real snooker.
See here for an example of professional snooker the greatest snooker 147 ever made by Ronnie O'Sullivan:

This game includes 6 cups, and several challenges and time attacks. As well as 50+ trophies for your achievements and leaderboards, including for you your best breaks.
We've created a new type of snooker called 3-Reds Snooker where there is only ever 3-reds on the table at any time. After you pot a red another is random placed on the table before you play for a colour. When there are no more random reds to add, you play on as normal and pot the yellow to black.
If you don't know the rules of snooker, you can check them in the game. But basically your aim is to out score your opponent by making breaks, e.g. potting: RED-BLACK-RED-PINK-etc...
THE COLOURS: Yellow (2pts), Green (3pts), Brown (4pts), Blue (5pts), Pink (6pts) & Black (7pts)
The colours are the group of balls that aren't the reds nor the white. After potting a red (1pt) you have to play for a colour, the black is the highest scoring colour, so is the best colour to pot. After potting a colour, you then pot a red again and so on... Once all of the reds are potted (and the final colour), you then pot the colours in order Yellow to Black.
When you're on a colour, you must nominate it by clicking on it so the cursor changes to the matching colour, or clicking the colours that appear on the left, or by pressing the points value of the colour (2-7 keys).
Aim with the mouse.
HOLD DOWN the LEFT MOUSE BUTTON and move DOWNWARDS to set the POWER. Use the scale that appears on the left to judge the strength.
Every shot uses the same action so it's really easy play.
Add spin to the white with the ARROWS or WASD keys, or by clicking on the big white ball in the top center.
SPEEDING UP THE ANIMATION:
Once a shot has been taken you can press Z to ZIP the animation to the end more quickly - very useful when the computer is playing!
For the hardest challenge, try the "Beat the Magician" challenge, he's capable of playing safety and positional shots, and if you're very unlucky he might make a big break or two against you - This challenge is only for the best players!
This is probably the best flash snooker game around - Enjoy!
