Break In is a sports simulation video game developed by Naxat Soft in 1989 for the TurboGrafx-16 and released only in Japan. The pool (pocket billiards) simulator was re-released on Nintendo's Virtual Console in all nations in 2008.[2]


The game simulates playing pool.[3] There are six modes to choose from and up to six players can play together on the Virtual Console release.[1]


IGN rated the game 5.5 of 10, citing broken English text, and very simple graphics and gameplay.[4] The game received 3 out of 5 stars from VC-Reviews, who said that the game has a wide variety of pool games to choose from and who thought it included everything a pool fan would need to be satisfied for the short term.[2]
