Well we know from the previous post that Hudson has released Pool Revolution: Cue Sports for WiiWare today, and that it sports online multiplayer gameplay, but what does it look like? This, apparently.
Pool games haven't really had to change all that much since the PSOne days. There's only so far you can go with physics when you've got some balls and a stick, so what things generally come down to these days are functionality and presentation. While from looking at these new screenshots of the game you can see the presentation is a bit bare, the online functionality more than makes up for that. Looks like the perfect game to break out after a few beers.
Kids, ask your parents before having a few beers. If the screens below look blurry, you've had too many.
HUDSON ENTERTAINMENT RELEASES POOL REVOLUTION: CUE SPORTS FOR DIGITAL DOWNLOAD ON WII
WiiWare Pool Title Features Realistic Controls Using the Wii Remote
REDWOOD CITY, CA – December 29, 2008 - Hudson Entertainment, the North American publishing arm of HUDSON SOFT, today announced that Pool Revolution: Cue Sports™ is now available for WiiWare™. Players no longer need to worry about having enough space for a pool table with this fun and addicting game that can be played against friends in the living room or online.
“Pool Revolution: Cue Sports is the only pool game for WiiWare that lets people play online,” said Sabine Duvall, Vice President of Product Development at Hudson Entertainment. “Pool fans can now play with people from all over the world in the comfort of their living rooms.”
Pool Revolution: Cue Sports features realistic controls where gamers use the Wii Remote™ just like an actual cue. The strength of the shot depends on how fast the player moves the remote. For those not quite ready to use an “actual” pool cue, the strength of the shot can be set by using the buttons on the controller.
Players can choose from the most popular types of pool for up to four players, including eight ball, nine ball, rotation, and snooker. An in-game tutorial will help provide descriptions of anything players need to know. Once gamers practice and understand how to play, they can also try performing trick shots in Puzzle Mode. For players ready for a challenge, they can even set up their own! And, for those who feel they are true pool sharks, there is online play for up to four players in a Nintendo® Wi-Fi Connection matchup.
Pool Revolution: Cue Sports is rated E for Everyone by the Entertainment Software Rating Board.
