Wikipedia has the following to say about Jimmy White's 'Whirlwind' Snooker...
"Jimmy White's 'Whirlwind' Snooker is a computer game by veteran programmer Archer MacLean, released by Virgin Games in 1991for the Commodore Amiga, Atari ST and PC (later for the Sega Mega Drive). 'Whirlwind' Snooker is a highly realistic snooker simulator.

Although the game was not the first to simulate snooker (or pool) in 3D, it made full use of the processing power and graphics capabilities of 16-bit home computers and was praised for its then ground-breaking realism and easy-to-use interface. ACE said that the game was the closest thing to being on a real snooker table which existed at the time, and it could be used by a player to refine real-life snooker skills.[2]"
