  • Excerpt: When it comes to the realm of leisure sports and the games based upon them, the line between parody and straight simulation of said sports is often pushed so far in one direction or the other that it often seems as though there's really no room for compromise between the two. This is a convention that European pool enthusiast Archer Maclean is aiming to challenge with his latest offering, Pool Paradise.

  • Excerpt: Pool Paradise is a precise representation of its real-life brother, billiards. Pool is not a complicated game and as such, Pool Paradise (PP) is likewise. You use a stick, called a cue, to hit the cue ball, which in-turn is knocked into other balls, of which the goal is to knock into holes. The name of the game is simple, fun, and clean.
