2024-03-02: The wiki ran out of disk space, so things were not working. This has been resolved by adding another 5GB of quota ;-) Thanks to Tim Lindner for reporting the issues. 2020-05-17: If a page gives you an error about some revision not being found, just EDIT the page and the old page should appear in the editor. If it does, just SAVE that and the page should be restored. OS-9 Al (talk) 12:22, 17 May 2020 (CDT)

8-Ball Intro
8-Ball Intro

8-Ball is the solids and stripes variation of table pool. It is a two player only game, and requires joysticks. I believe that this was also one of the few games by a non-Radio Shack company that was actually available in cartridge form. You can control the spin on the ball, and the amount of force that you hit the ball with. As with regular pool, you must sink the 8-Ball last.

Charles J Roslund, one of the authors, also used to write an machine language tutorial column called 'Charlie's Machine' for Rainbow magazine during the early 1980's. The publishing company, Anteco Software, was also one of the few companies that actually showed off Coco wares at Comdex during the early 1980's (Radio Shack/Tandy, Datasoft, and Kraft (for joysticks) were some of the others).
