In the world of Showcase Snooker, you're the up-coming contender. Play against a range of computerised players in a variety of locations. Keep cool under pressure as the tension mounts and the captive audience falls silent. You steady your aim, the frames are equal, the scores are level, potting the black ball will see you crowned champion.
Play in a number of exotic locations, wonder at the skills of the people who transported the table there, and dream of chance to play snooker on a tropical isle.
Reliance on a steady hand, and an eye for the shot are essential, a sneeze at the wrong time could spell disaster.
