"Pool Paradise" is a series of multi-platform pocket billiards simulator video games. The series includes two releases .
The first of the two games, Archer Maclean's Pool Paradise...
You arrive penniless on an idyllic South Pacific island. Scattered around the beach and in various huts are a variety of Pool tables and sub games to pass the time -- when you feel you are good enough, enter the Competition hut and start climbing the championship ladder to make your fortune! There are 11 sets of pool rules and no less than 30 very different computer opponents for you to challenge. Earn cash by beating your opponent, and by having side bets on various shots in the game, then spend your cash in the beach shop on pool accessories and other fun stuff.
Its puzzlingly addictive nature simply cannot be reasoned with, yet at the same time, it helps solidify the game as one of the best games of pool to come out on a console platform in many years.
The amount of billiards games available is impressive. The selection of extra sub-games is equally well received. And the heart of the title, which of course is the pool, plays solidly thanks to accurate control, decent competitive artificial intelligence
