[prMac.com] Calgary, Canada - Snooker Star the FREE snooker based puzzle game for the iPhone and iPod Touch is getting a new strategy and gameplay feature dubbed "chalk power". As any good snooker player knows, chalk during a game helps give a player extra ball control to build higher breaks and make bigger scores. This real life feature is being added as a puzzle element to the game making every shot count.
Playing in infinity mode, you now have to keep a close eye on your chalk levels so you don't run out during a frame. As each shot passes, you only have a limited amount of chalk available. This reduces with every shot you take. With only 4 top-up's of varying values available, you have to plan your strategy well and avoid wasting any chalk that you may need later on. It really adds a brand new dimension to the game and makes it far more challenging, especially with an extra red ball thrown into the mix for good measure. Quick play mode is still available and a great way to practice your skills over a single frame. To help you along, the chalk power is turned off so you can really get to grips with making bigger and bigger highest breaks.
Another great feature coming to the game is an adjustment to the scoring system. Not only do you get a frame multiplier that increases your points the further you progress during the game but, there are no more negative overall scores. The scoreboard stops at zero and allows you to build your score back up again much more easily if you happen to run into the minus sign.
Snooker Star offers a unique twist to a traditional game of snooker whilst still remaining true to it's origins. Each game you play is always different and is the ideal game on the go that allows you to fit a game of snooker in no matter where you are.
