If you're ever looking for me on a Saturday night, there's a good chance you'll find me cruising the tables of my local pool hall. Now it's not just Saturdays that I'll be chalking up since I became acquainted with the wonders of Pool Challenge.

The game represents one of the most realistic mobile simulations of the game I've ever seen. In fact it's as smartly turned-out as even the most well-kept baizes of the World Championships. From the opening video montage through to the pixel-perfect ball shadows and intelligent physics, you'll be blown away by the visuals of this one.

Luckily, Pool Challenge is good fun to play, too. The Pocket PC version turns your stylus into a miniature pool cue which controls both the angle and the power of each shot. At first this control system is a little tricky to get used to such is its sensitivity, and I was forever over-hitting shots or even hitting the ball when I didn't want to.

There are two game modes to choose from: 8-ball or 9-ball pool, and you can plump for one or two-player options. There are quite a few game settings to tinker with as well, such as CPU opponent difficulty, table friction, and music volume. The latter of these is most welcome, since the in-game soundtrack is soundtrack is pretty unbearable.

If you're potty about potting then you certainly won't be disappointed by Pool Challenge.

Are you one of those small-time pool hall junkies with a self-destructive attitude, or do you consider yourself to be the real deal? Either way, If you've got the "balls" and show us "the color of money", we'll give you the ultimate "Pool Challenge"! No sitting back and relaxing with this game, you'll need every trick in the book and much more to beat this puppy! Anyway, with Pool Challenge you'll be entering the dark world of cigarettes, poor liquor, fast women and dirty pool! Everything a real pool hustler ever wants!

Think you're ready to shoot the eyes right off them balls? Then mark this: With Pool Challenge, you'll simply be getting the best pool simulation game, with the most realistic physics, and the nicest high-resolution graphics. Actually, your whole PDA will literally become a virtual pool table.
