One of the first "realistic" pool games for the PC, PC Pool Challenges lets you play straight pool or 9-ball with up to four players in an incredibly customizable simulation. Description from MobyGames: "Players can be human or computer-controlled. Nearly every aspect of pool is recreated, including speed, skill levels and more. The game also has a customize menu for adjusting friction, rail bounce, collision accuracy and many other parameters."

PC Pool Challenges is an astounding programming feat for its time (1984), and a game that, surprisingly enough, stands the test of time amazingly well almost two decades later. Two thumbs up, way up!
