Description

Platinum Pinball is indeed an oddity. It's a compilation of other compilations usually found only inside a compilation. Okay, let's not get ahead of ourselves.

Platinum Pinball consists of ten pinball tables. The first four are a collection of games from Pin-Ball Games Limited (circa 1998) and include:
  • Judge Dredd: The British comic book, not the insipid American movie.
  • The Avengers: The British TV series, not the comic book or the insipid American movie.
  • Roswell: Just some aliens, not the American TV series.
  • World League Pinball: Football the way the world plays it, not the World League of American Football (now known as NFL Europe).
The remaining six are games Redoubt licensed from SpiderSoft that were previously released as Pinball Mania Plus (as well as in other pinball compilations). Although some of these tables were later upgraded to full 3D in Total Pinball 3D (aka Pinball 3D-VCR), these are the original 2D versions:
  • Dare Devil: A stunt show themed game.
  • Jackpot: A gambling and gaming pinball table.
  • Jail Break: Prison themed pinball.
  • Tarantula: SpiderSoft's signature game.
  • Kick Off: Another footy game.
  • The Visitors: Two FBI agents investigating UFOs.
Platinum Pinball itself exists almost exclusively as a product inside of other compilation packages published by Encore Software.
