Anyone who ever watched a game of Snooker undoubtedly heard of Jimmy "whirlwind" White. Known and loved for his aggressive form of playing, and his desire to entertain, White was (and still is) considered an icon of the Snooker world for decades. It's therefore not a coincidence his name was licensed for what is considered the first realistic Snooker simulator.

The game allows you to practice games against either a real person, or the computer. Additionally, you can perform trick shots, or watch a demo game where two computer opponents will play each other.

The game enables you to very carefully line up your shots. Generally speaking, you want to use the mouse to add the general line-up for the cue ball, and then fine-tune things using the angle- and cue left/right buttons.

You can check the table layout from different angles, and if you need it, you can use help-lines to get an indication of the shot you're about to make. You can also control the power with which you will hit the cue ball.

Like with real life Snooker, you are also able to add spin to the cue ball, which will determine how it reacts after hitting the intended target ball. This allows you to very precisely control where the cue ball will end up after making your shot. Be aware, though, that this should be considered a more advanced move, and you generally are better off learning the different angles without providing any spin.


A secret demo game can be unlocked by heading into the Trick Shots menu, and then pressing [F7], followed by [F4] and [F1]. The demo game will show the computer playing 147 breaks (the highest possible score in Snooker).


Note: This is the un-cracked version of the game, which I took directly from the original games' floppy drive. The scan of the copy protection is included in the CD-ROM version of the game, and can/should be used to bypass the protection.

For the Jimmy fans, here's what I consider to be one of the most amazing snooker shots ever recorded on video:
