Pocket Gal by BMan2
Game:Pocket GalCompany:Data East
Type:SportsPlayers:1/2

Pocket Gal is a game that holds a very special place in my heart - and NO it's not because of the scantily clad women okay?? *grins* It's because that during my very early arcade playing days - this was the CHEAPEST game in our video arcade - and for only 20 cents - I could get a game - that was still fun (albeit the girlies were censored out :P) - and lasted for a little while - which suited my high school budget just fine. (and I SWEAR there were no girls on my version!)
In all honesty though - Pocket Gal is a pretty slapdash effort at pool - with there being MUCH better attempts out there at the genre. The graphics (apart from the girlies) are fairly plain - the control system is awkard with a joystick - and the game really does not do anything that would make it jump out at you in a line up. The idea of the game is to score points from either sinking balls consecutively - or moreso - sink them in consecutive order. On achieving a certain number of points - the girl at the pool hall level - will oblige and take her clothes off. Oooray for cartoon pr0n. :P
But it's GAMEPLAY we want isn't it folks?? After all - there is more to life than pixelated nudity. Sadly for this game - it doesn't get much better. The actual pool dynamics are bad - and while you have a wide range of shot options with spin and power - for mine the aiming system used in Pocket Gal is WAY too general to accurately put the ball in the pocket every time - which after all is the idea of the game. Also - I feel that the 3 "balls" you get to sink the balls - combined with this aiming inaccuracy - makes the game a little limited. My advice - do what I did - find it cheap - and play it often. But not too often - you could go blind :P
