Extreme Pinball is Epic Megagames' successor to Epic Pinball. It contains four pinball tables: Rock Fantasy, Medieval Knights, Urban Chaos, and Monkey Mayhem, each with a different theme. Compared to Epic Pinball, it has a larger, 320x400 resolution, as well as taller tables, both allowing for more objects. It also has a typical Dot Matrix Display where the scoreboard shows 3D-rendered animations as well. The controls are more sensitive with a faster ball. This is less true to real pinball gameplay, but it speeds up the game's pace and gives more power to the player to influence the movement.

Scene links: Sound effects were done by Alex Brandon, aka Siren/ex-KFMF, known for his music in the Epic games Unreal, Jazz Jackrabbit 2, and Tyrian. Yes, that includes all the animal noises in Monkey Mayhem :). The music for Extreme Pinball was done by Robert Allen, who also composed for Epic's other pinball game releases.
