Les flippers répondent au quart de tour, les rebonds et la vitesse de balle sont bien dosés, et rendent ce jeu attrayant et accessible même aux plus jeunes.
If you're a pinball fan you won't see the new features which are appearing on the latest coin-op games but, if you can't afford one of those in your hall, Nintendo's ball blazer provides an excellent alternative.
Tilt (Dec, 1987)
L'animation est évidemment un véritable modèle de célérité et la rapidité de l'ensemble étonne même les joueurs chevronnés. Ce jeu possède aussi ses défauts : on ne peut pas y jouer à plus de deux et la gestion « bumper » n'est pas des plus rationnelles. Mais ce n'est pas si grave.....
The Video Game Critic (Aug 12, 2001)
It's easy to pass this off as a shallow, generic pinball game, but with repeated play it proves surprisingly addictive. There's only one table, and it's theme is... well, it really doesn't have a theme, but that's okay. The game switches between two screens that display the top and bottom halves of the table, each with their own sets of flippers. You get all the standard pinball trappings, including bumpers, spinners, flippers, and traps. The graphics aren't anything to write home about, but the action is smooth and the physics is realistic enough. You only control the flippers - there's no "nudge" button. Pinball may not be much to look at, but it's challenging, well-balanced gameplay is more than respectable.

Pinball is a relic of a bygone era. It was a nice game to have in your home in the 80s, but pinball has come a long way since then. Small in both scale and scope, the title doesn't really hold up well in a world that provides options like Zen Pinball or The Pinball Arcade. Pinball served its purpose at one time, but there's not much reason to revisit it now.
Power Play (Feb, 1988)
Die wenigen witzigen Einlagen können nicht darüber hinwegtäuschen. daß es sich mit Pinball nur äußerst mittelmäßig flippert. Ich verspürte keine Lust. mich längere Zeit mit diesem Spiel zu beschäftigen, obwohl ich ansonsten ganz gerne zu Computerflippern greife. Für 69 Mark ist Pinball entschieden zu teuer. Die älteren Module sollte man zu einen wesentlich niedrigeren Preis anbieten.
