Power Snooker

London, 21 st Oct 2010

Big Head Games and Power Snooker Limited are today proud to reveal the new Power Snooker game for Apple iPhone and iPad.

Arriving in the iTunes App store in time for the launch event of this exciting new sport.

Power Snooker is an innovative re-working of the traditional game of Snooker.

In Power Snooker points count, frames don’t– the player scoring the most points in a 30 minute match wins.

Only 9 red balls on the table the centre ball being the Power Ball, sink this and for 2 minutes points count double, the PowerPlay.

A PowerZone, also delivers double points for any shot played from behind the baulk line giving the opportunity for quadruple points when combined with a PowerPlay.

A shot timer of 20 seconds limits the player’s time to take a shot, run past this and face a 20 point penalty, forcing very fast play and at times costly mistakes.

The launch event on 30 th October 2010 is to be held at the O2 Arena in London, England and features 8 of the world’s top players including Ronnie O’ Sullivan, Ding Junhui, Allister Carter, Luca Brecel, Neil Robertson, Jimmy White, Shaun Murphy and Mark Selby.
