Description

In 1995 21st Century Entertainment licensed several already-released pinball tables to the online distribution company Instant Access, which bundled them in a compilation named Perfect Pinball. The pack features content of three previous games:Of the nine tables, only three are playable - Safari, Stall Turn and Revenge of the Robot Warriors. The other six must be purchased and unlocked via the included Instant Access browser. The basic price is £5 for one table (~ $8 in 1995), £12 for three (~ $19), payable by debit or credit card. The activation procedure requires buyers to call a local phone number and exchange 18-digit code numbers.

While the game itself remains a pure DOS program, the Instant Access browser requires Windows 3.1 or better to run.

All tables exist in the original low-res VGA version (320x200) as well as in a high-res SVGA alternative (640x350). The CD contains two audio tracks. Perfect Pinball includes the "History of Pinball" feature, a database with facts and artworks for a broad selection of historical pinball machines.
