REVIEW - Deep Pockets Super Pro Pool & Billiards

August 4, 2013

REVIEW BY RETRO VIDEO GAMER - SCORE 8/10

Ever wanted to learn nine different types of billiard games? Well, here is your chance! Deep Pockets boasts nine different types of pocket billiards (pool) and carom billiards and it is only available on the Intellivision. The opening screen for the game looks and sounds like a billiard parlour as you have a lit and very nicely rendered table appear. From this screen you move to a menu screen where you can choose from five variations of pool and four variations of carom followed by a screen (which is another beautiful screen with two guys over the billiard table) where you select the number of players. At this screen, in the two-player mode, you can then select number of matches and up to how many points to play for. You are then taken to the table itself which is seen from above. The rules of whichever game you have selected apply and the cue ball will need to be positioned according to those rules using the disc on your controller. Depending on the game you are playing, you can select the ball or select the pocket. You then take aim, apply spin if so desired, and shoot. Deep Pockets lets you play a nice game of billiard. The table graphics are simple but work well. Sound is also minimal during the game itself. Deep Pockets was a limited IntelligentVision release. Unfortunately, you will definitely need to go deep into your pockets if you want to get it!
