Mobile games and content publisher Player One has announced the launch of Ronnie O'Sullivan Snooker, the latest in a series of licenced titles featuring world-renowned sporting heroes.
Ronnie O'Sullivan Snooker, which is fully endorsed by the World Snooker number one and double Premier League Snooker Champion, features a 3D gaming environment that allows players to view the table from every possible angle. The game includes a full championship mode for up to 32 players, in addition to Ronnie's Snooker Hall mode where new skills and trick shots can be learned.
Player One's managing director, Pete Russell, commented: "Ronnie O'Sullivan is the world's No.1 snooker player and we are proud to add him to our stable of first class sporting licences. Ronnie has helped to rejuvenate the game of snooker over the last few years and we have no doubt his domination of the sport will continue in the years ahead. The Ronnie O'Sullivan Snooker game is an innovative title which we hope will excite mobile phone gamers and snooker fans alike."
O'Sullivan made an incredible impact on the snooker world last season, winning five of the ten major titles up for grabs. Dubbed 'Rocket Ronnie', the sporting legend won three ranking titles in a season for the first time in his career and retained his world no.1 status.
O'Sullivan said he is pleased with the way the new title has turned out, stating: "The guys at Player One have done a great job with the game. It's realistic and the fact that I've got it downloaded on my phone means I can practice my game no matter where I am or what I'm doing! I'm sure that snooker fans young and old will love this game."
