The copy on the back of the 3D Pool inlay says:
The first 3-dimensional computer Pool game that lets you view the table from almost ANY ANGLE YOU CHOOSE! Rotate and tilt the Pool table to setup your shot, then crack the cue ball into the pack. You've never seen anything like it!
Stunningly realistic true to life 3D Pool simulation.
Awe-inspiring realtime rotating table.
Super intelligent computer-controlled opponents.
Delicate control of spin, swerve and power.
All the fun of creating your own trick shots.
Pit your wits against Maltese Joe - European Pool champ!
3D Pool was released in a double-cassette crystal case and the larger 5.25" disc crystal case for the C64 and 16-bit disk versions.
The original 3D Pool advert was in the much-used photo style that the TelecomSoft Marketing department was so fond of back in 1988.
The MicroProse advert was very simple (as was the game packaging), featuring Steinar Lund's graphic design. Microprose didn't list the formats available. Instead they simply declared 'Available on all formats now!' which was extremely ambiguous but was probably chosen because they were uncertain which versions they were going to publish.
