Arcade Pool

Postby xpresschok » Wed Aug 03, 2005 8:38 pm

As Arcade Pool and Arcade Snooker (the CU Amiga cover disk) were both very enjoyable, I'd like to know what the current status of Arcade Pool II is: is it commercially available from any brand that is sold in "offline" game stores? If so, what company is currently marketing it? Does anyone know?

Arcade Pool II is available to buy from TryMedia. Originally the game itself was made available on the Hasbro Budget range, but it has not been re-released since. I've tried (and failed) on numerous occasions to get permission to host it for download, but until TryMedia go under, I doubt we'll be able to.

No need to, really, as I already have the cover disk. :)
I was interested in seeing how (if?) Arcade Pool II had improved things, and to see how the game had made the transition to higher-res graphics.
But as I don't buy stuff online (except by mail order) I really need to find some place that sells the game either in a regular store, or by mail order so I don't have to use some (possibly insecure) online payment method. So I guess TryMedia is out of the question, as much because of that as because of the fact that I like to have the actual original disc in my collection for safe keeping.

Xpress - I'll have a look at the shop I purchased my copy from (he has a veritable Goldmine of PC titles from up to twenty years ago) and I'll see if he has a copy. I picked mine up for £10 from that shop. I can find out if he does Mail Orders, if you like.

Incidentally, CAPS Project might like to get their mits on that Floppy Disk of Arcade Snooker. They've contacted me twice asking me if I have a copy (sadly, it has been urinated on by an over-excited kitten).

I'll have a look-see in the local tech-geek-populated shops again, maybe I'll get lucky. If I don't, well, I'll just pester some of the bigger game stores in the country about it and see what turns up - sometimes they are actually able to find some rare gems. Then again, quite often, I'll find the last copy of what I'm looking for while browsing some bargain bin in the local supermarket or at the mall. Odd, that.

I contacted the little shop - no copies left, but still some very rare finds PC-wise (original boxed copies of Sam 'n' Max on both Floppy and CD, for example).
