RemarksAccording to an article in Pop.Com.Weekly (21.Jun.84, front page) Hustler was re-released in the UK as Minnesota Fats' Pool Challenge (although probably not on the Spectrum - "conversions for other machines are expected soon"). Apparently Bubble Bus licensed HesWare to sell the game in the US, who renamed it as above, and then Thorn-EMI got the rights to sell HesWare's games in the UK, including the renamed Hustler.
