Lumiappaday #115: International Snooker demoed on the Nokia Lumia 800

| March 9, 2012 | 5 Replies


International Snooker as I’ve just found out is a very popular cross platform snooker game, and no wonder why. I’ve really enjoyed playing it. Looks great and with very comprehensive but usable controls. The app is amazingly cheaper on Windows Phone Marketplace than AppStore – it’s £2.29 here ($2.99) whilst $4.99 at App Store. But you can also play the free trial version (Demoed above)

The only thing missing is perhaps instant resume, though it does load previous games instantly after that (which it automatically saves). Give it a go
