Screens of online pool on DS

Oxygen serves up some pool action with Nintendo Wi-Fi Connection capabilities

8Ball Allstars is taking the game of pool online on DS and it's looking promising in these new screens.

As well as online multiplayer options, the game will pack a single-player tournament mode with unique unlockable characters, tables and environments, a trick-shot-orientated challenge mode and AI opponents each with their own characteristics and playing styles.

Pool games are rarely discussed and never attract any major attention, but we really like pool games, particularly on PC, and with the stylus control, pool on DS has the potential to be even better.

It not Zelda, agreed, but we'll be keeping an eye out for its release - it's currently pencilled in for later this year.
