Classic SNooker Commodore 64 game

Classic Snooker, also known as Tournament Snooker, is a sports simulation video game developed and published by Anco Software in 1987 for the Commodore 16 and Commodore 64 platforms.

Overview: Classic Snooker is a sports simulation game that emulates the cue sport of snooker. It provides players with the option to play against the AI or compete against another player on a traditional snooker table.

Reception: The game received mixed reviews from critics. Computer Gamer magazine awarded it a score of 84% and praised the game's mechanics, despite some bugs. The magazine noted that the action could slow down when more than three balls were in motion but considered it acceptable since the game was flicker-free and loaded quickly, stating, "The action does slow down if more than three balls are moving, but this is acceptable as the whole thing is flicker-free and as a bonus loads in only a few seconds."

Zzap! 64 gave Classic Snooker a score of 51% and commented on the poor performance of the game on the Commodore 16 system, stating that it "plays okay, but the screen tends to flicker quite violently at times and can prove most off-putting."

Aktueller Software Markt (ASM) provided a score of 62% for the game. While acknowledging the entertaining and realistic aspects of the gameplay, ASM expressed concerns about the difficulty in distinguishing the colors of the balls from each other, particularly the pink, brown, and red balls, as well as the yellow and white ball. Despite this drawback, ASM found the graphics to be pleasing and stated, "Of course, the mentioned drawback spoils the fun, but this disadvantage is offset by the quite realistic presentation."
