1. FREE BILLIARDS GAME
Shoot pool on your computer with this pool billiards program!
The program includes the following games:
- 3-balls Billiards (French Billiards)
- Pool (American Billiards)
- Snooker (English Billiards)
- Esnuka (Spanish Billiards)
In all the pool billiards games, there is the possibility to play against the computer as there are up to ten pc players with different levels of ability.
There is also the possibility of billiards, pool, snooker, and all Esnuka games of competing in an eight pc players tournament, among which can be the players available in the computer.
Also, in BEEPS (Billiards - Esnuka II - Pool - Snooker) Cups, points are accumulated when beating the computer players.
You choose the angle, spin, and impulse. Again, in Esnuka, three-ball billiards, pool billiards, and snooker, it is possible to save a game and continue it later.
The pool billiards Esnuka reproduces the evolution of the species and radically changes some of the concepts generally accepted up until now.
This evolution shows a particular example within the general theory of Conditional Evolution, explained in the instructions.
Using the computer technology (1992) and drawing on parallels with pool billiards and snooker, the theory appears in an easy and fun way, thanks to its impressive visual effects.
At all times, Esnuka is as user-friendly as possible, with the use of menus, quick help screens, and complete instructions.
The instruction explains the theories most relevant to this subject.
As well as being able to change the parameters of the initial configuration, the program contains four more models:
The Random model displays the characters of the whole population after specifying a number of generations from the initial random selection.
Esnuka has the main parameters of the general theory of the Conditional Evolution of Life; the game is similar on snooker, where players try to pot those balls closest to the aim of the game. In this model, the snooker balls are of two different types, with a clear sexual parallel.
Particular evolution model, Esnuka-II, in which the sexual differentiation carries out the limitation function referred to in the CEL and the color of the genes determines the gender according to Mendel's laws.
Esnuka-III is identical to Esnuka II except for the color of the balls. It becomes more difficult to distinguish as the game goes on. Therefore, sexual differentiation becomes less evident.
There is a function to display any specific hybridization at all times.
