for Xbox LIVE Arcade
Deep Silver Inc., a publisher of interactive entertainment software and a
wholly-owned subsidiary of Koch Media, and Dark Energy Digital, a British
developer and publisher of video games, today announced that "Inferno Pool" is
now available in North America and Asia for Xbox LIVE® Arcade.
"Inferno Pool" is a revolutionary new arcade Pool/Billiards
game where 1-4 local or online players battle to clear their tables while firing
potted balls at opponents. Players can stockpile balls for a later onslaught,

friends will be betrayed, and the battle isn’t over until the stat screen
