Each week for Arcade Gems we highlight lesser-known, must-play titles. These games are favorites of those in-the-know, and, once you give them a try, we think you’ll agree that they’re worthy classics.
This week’s Arcade Gem is Side Pocket (1986)
Side Pocket is a pool simulator. The objective is to sink balls to reach a predetermined score on each level. The player has a limited number of chances and errors can spell defeat. Bonus levels and the chance to earn extra balls await those who are lucky enough to complete the stages.
