Chalk up your cue stick and rack up those balls. Now get ready, get set, break! The balls scatter and the match is on... It's the Data East Pool Tournament Finals, and you're behind the 8-ball! It'll take a steady hand and a sharp eye to hustle your way to the top. Challenge your opponents to the ultimate game of skill, but you've got to stay cool... It's a green felt jungle out there!

Perfectly adequate retro pool game. Not much to remark on other than a neat trickshot bonus mode and some nice atmospheric sprite art.

Honestly, what I get out of this most is the Genesis version's unique, catchy smooth jazz soundtrack played through nice round brassy synths. I've certainly listened to the soundtrack far more times than I've played it.
