Description: In a not too distant future advanced in artificial gravity (or more accurately lack of it) have provided the platform to an immersive 3D pool game called Thunder Spheres. Set in three zones (Astronauts, Explorers and Circus) the game revolves around your ability to pot floating spheres into pockets in the arena around you.

You battle against the clock with a range of weapons designed to help you pot the floating spheres whilst avoiding the power-downs that can hamper your progress. Choose from a gun, longbow, slingshot, minigun, hand cannons and rocket launcher to pot the spheres in ever-changing environments such as a cage orbiting the planet mars, standing on a grill above lava flows, battling in a cave as a spiked ceiling slowly comes down on you, in a spinning wheel in the alps and amongst demented clowns in a revolving circus tent.

Review: I can see the potential in this idea that is ‘Thunder Spheres’ but I have to say it fails on delivering anything remotely playable. Its basically normal pool, mixed with Speedball, but it just doesn’t work, especially some of the weapons that feel broken somehow. A good idea I suppose, but this game needs a lot of work doing to it, but it looks as if it has long been abandoned which is a shame. It is only £1.99 at least, so you can give it a go if you like the look of it, but personally, I really wouldn’t bother.
