The very last game written by INTV Corp. for the Intellivision; released only as a ROM image. That is, until the IntelligentVision team produced a beautifully packaged, complete game in 2012.

Screen Shots

I haven't sat down and played Deep Pockets enough to give it a fair review with respect to gameplay yet. I can say the following things, though... The title screen music and graphics are great. Visit the official Intellivision Lives! site for an interesting history about the game's music. The graphics for the title screen and a couple other areas are also quite nice. The major disappointment with the graphics is the flickering of the balls. Since they were treated, apparently, as distinct objects (i.e. no dirty tricks were pulled), the limitation on the number of moving objects is exposed in this game.




ROM This game was only available as a ROM image until IntelligentVision's 2012 "gift" release; unsure if the cartridge is a variant.
Box No box was ever made for this game until the 2012 release.
Manual No manual was ever printed for Deep Pockets Super Pro Pool & Billiards until the IntelligentVision release.
Overlays No overlays were made for this game until the 2012 release. Two different overlay variations are known to exist.
Label No label variations existed until the 2012 IntelligentVision cartridge release. No variations have been found.
Easter Eggs Two Easter eggs exist - credits and a special message.

Title Screen Quite a nice screen—and the music is simply awesome! As soon as I heard about this ROM I downloaded it through an Intellicart and was just wowed by that music.
Select Game Nice variety of games to choose from.
Select Players (Purdy) Once again, impressive graphics—all that just to pick the number of players!
The Table Actually, this looks much better than the real thing. The actual game flickers a bit because of all the balls.
