    I know there's a PS3 thread but the Vita version needs a separate thread due to the extras that it has, especially the brilliant, Vita only, "Message Mode"

    Its online play for those who want to take life easy.

    You take your shot, then it gets messaged to your opponent, who takes their shot when they get a spare 5 minutes, then when their session is finished you get a message telling you its your turn, and so on...

    Its a brilliant way of playing, I'm currently playing a game of Snooker, I took my shot last night, when I woke up I had a message on Vita telling me it was my go again, just turned on at dinnertime and had my next turn.


    Is anyone interested in a Eurogamer Snooker Tournament/Pool Tournament?

    I'd be in for a Pool tournament (don't have the Snooker DLC yet). I'm working through career mode at the moment but am finding it a bit of a struggle so losing to some human competition would make a nice change :-P

    I'd be up for that. Really, really like the message mode. Didn't know the snooker dlc was available for the vita version, might have to purchase that ;)

    The DLC works on both versions, If you've bought it for PS3 then you already own it, and just need to download it.

    I was hoping that was the case. Bought it on PS3 but have yet to install it on Vita. Am quite enjoying the Career mode on this at the moment it's a perfect game for a handheld i think. will be up for a few tournaments / message mode games if anyone else is?

    @andijames

    You're worried about that? you should see the 'Felt ripper' I've just performed in a match with Zombie Elvis :)

    To quote Lister from Red Dwarf "Its off the table and into somebody's beer"

    I'll try and setup a game of Killer later, you can have more than one player in that, so it'll be a good test of the friends list system.

    I'm just pleased I actually managed to win a game, god knows I'm not going to beat the AI any time soon!

    It's a belting game for pick up and playability i must say! Like the way you can replay the shots / match too in the message game. Shame you can't screen capture these moments to share ;) Honestly if it were billiards i would be the in-off champion by now. Sure those pockets have magnets in that suddenly turn on when the white is near it! :p

    Yeah that first trick shot is a bit of a pain I have done by a bit of luck but also playing it how they said lot of right hand side with a bit of top, it's about 75% power and then all you have to is judge where to hit on the side cushion.

    This is one of my favourite games at the moment and it was a freebie as i bought it on PS3 a few yrs back! The message play is wonderfully addictive (just ask our resident felt ripper Mr X201 ;) ) and is an extremely game in career mode.

    Whilst i'm here does anyone know how to properly work the second power mode for taking shots? (the one where you move the blue bar and then hit it) It seems different in the way you place the power yet you still do the power via the cue like the other shooting mode? Maybe i'm just being thick!

    I think the second part dictates thee accuracy of the shot and the power is restricted to the maximum you allowed with the blue bar before.

    Anyone up for a message mode game?

    Stick 20p on the thread and write your name on the board.:-)

    Remember to mention if you want Pool,Snooker or both.

    I'm completely struggling with beat-the-clock. I think I've had like 40+ attempts and still not done it. After taking a shot the game seems to pick the worst ball to pot meaning I have to press R1 for top down view and then completely swivel the cue to chose an easier pot - tis eats into my time.

    I've also just tried potting whatever ball the game chooses on each shot.
    Edit:thank god! just cleared it.

    Anyone have any idea how to do the second trick shot in career mode? After a few attempts to jump over the ball in front that's clearly not the way to go, it always ends up like one of X201's 'felt rippers' :-P

    We should try and get a few people together for a EG game of killer over message play.

    Slight problem with that. Message play only supports two player games. I tweeted the devs about it last week and got the bad news :(

    I'm enjoying this game quite a bit, although some of the trick shots, as have been stated, are infuriating.

    Ahh crap! Seems like an ideal way of doing > 2 player matches.

    Your shot in our game by the way mate.

    Right, I have officially reached the rank of "Rubbish but at least knows how to pot a ball".

    So, I'm willing to join in a message game when ready. Pool only sadly. May rectify that soon.

    That said, the format does lend itself to maybe creating a league within the thread? I suppose it depends if you have the room in your friends list.

    I'm up for some message play. PSN is TheZombieElvis. Played quite a few message games against X201 since launch day and I'm still a bit rubbish too.

    Seriously tempted to pick up the snooker pack, may get it alongside the Motorstorm RC DLC.

    An EG league would be good if we can get enough folks on board.

    Could someone please tell me when taking a shot in this game, it's touch control only or is there a way you can take a shot by using anything else but the touch screen. I noticed you can aim with the buttons, but can't find another way apart from using the touch screen to take a shot. I'm playing a demo and was wondering if there are more different controls in the full game.
