"A Snooker-Style Trivia Quiz Game for 1 to 4 Players. Six categories of questions: SCIENCE & NATURE, POP MUSIC, GEOGRAPHY, SPORTS & PASTIMES, ARTS and HISTORY. Over 1,500 questions in the BBC/Electron version. Over 2,000 questions in the A3000/Arcimedes version, including digitised picture and digitised sound questions.
In the one player game, try to get the highest break - you might even manage the maximum break of 147. In the 2 to 4 player game, compete against your friends and family for the highest score and highest break.
Start your frame with an easy red question, then choose your colour - have you the nerve to choose the black ball question? You've used all your PASSES and the ball is OVER THE POCKET - if you miss it's a FOUL SHOT!
"ALL THE FUN AND CHALLENGE OF A TRIVIA QUIZ AND SNOOKER MATCH ROLLED INTO ONE ENTHRALLING GAME."
During loading, the following message will appear on the screen "Please enter frame code". You should then select a set of questions by pressing any key between A and Z. To minimise repetition of questions, it is recommended that you start from question file A (FRAMEA) and work through to question file Z (FRAMEZ). On completing a frame, subsequent question files will load in automatically.
Select the number of players by pressing the appropriate number key (1, 2, 3 or 4); then enter players' names.
Choose your question answer by pressing the appropriate number key (1, 2, 3 or 4).
Cycle through the colour balls by pressing SPACE and select by pressing <RETURN>. "S" is Science (& Nature); "P" is Pop Music; "G" is Geography; "L" is Leisure (i.e. Sports & Pastimes); "A" is Arts; "H" is History.
Each player is allowed to pass up to three red questions (the number of passes remaining is indicated by stars next to the player's name). When the "YOU MAY PASS" sign appears, press SPACE if you wish to pass.
In the 2 to 4 player game, if the "OVER POCKET" sign appears and you get the answer wrong, this constitutes a FOUL SHOT. Your opponents will be awarded the appropriate foul shot score.
You may pause the game when not answering a questin by pressing the P key and restart by pressing the O key.
