Description

Epic Pinball is a pinball video game played from a 2D top-down view within a scrollable window. The game was distributed on floppy disks in three separate packs of 4 tables each:
  • Pack 1 (Android, Pot of Gold, Excalibur, Crash and Burn)
  • Pack 2 (Magic, Jungle Pinball, Deep Sea, Enigma)
  • Pack 3 (Cyborgirl, Pangaea, Space Journey, Toy Factory)
The shareware version of the game (and an early retail version) included only the original "Android" table (later versions contained an updated version called "Super Android"). Some tables were available as a separate releases as well as in much bigger compilations.

Each table has up to four flippers, giving the player the possibility to control the ball uniquely during the game. The tables are themed, making each table individual on its own way.

Trivia

Artwork

Artwork for the tables Space Journey and Toy Factory was done by a member of the demo group Future Crew.

OEM version

Acer used to package Epic Pinball in their early to mid 90's desktop PCs. It came with three tables: Toy Factory, Space Journey, and Pangaea.

Registered version

The floppy disk 'registered version' does not contain Epic Pinball Pack 3.

Shareware version

The original Shareware version lets you play only the Android table, although all of the others are included on the menu. Selecting the other tables shows them, but tells you to contact Epic to access them.
