Steve Davis Snooker is the ultimate snooker simulation for all home computers. Packed with features, and endorsed by the World No. 1 himself. A must for all sports fans.
Features include: computer play option, variable speed, friction factor, spin control and foul shot facility.
If the computer has been selected for one or more of the play options the computer asks for the skill level for it to play at. Using the control keys varies the skill level. Table speed has three options: fast, normal or slow; again this is controlled by the control keys.
At The Table
a. To play, position the white cue ball in the 'D'. Press fire. b. Then move the crosshair to the ball you have selected to hit and position it at the point of contact you decide will offer you the best shot. Press fire. c. Select the spin you require. Press fire. d. Select the power you require.
To execute the shot, press fire.
After potting a red you will be asked to select a colour. Move the crosshair over the colour you require and press fire, the colour you select will be shown on the bottom of the screen. During match play if your opponent commits a foul shot you can request them to play again. The computer will always choose to play itself. Your decision is made using the control keys and pressing fire.
Normal Snooker rules apply. A red ball (score 1) is pocketed first followed by a colour (score as table). The same sequence follows until no reds are remaining then the colours are potted in this sequence:
Yellow Score 2
Green Score 3
Brown Score 4
Blue Score 5
Pink Score 6
Black Score 7
For a foul involving the yellow, green or brown a fixed penalty of four is incurred.
If blue, pink or black are struck out of sequence the foul values are 5, 6 or 7 respectively.
Due to the limitations of the computer, it is not possible to show a black or a brown ball.
The black is represented by a white circle and the brown by a green with a red centre.
