Starball PC is an odd pinball game based largely on the game called Spaceball (named Starball in the original German release) on the Atari ST.

While this game is a typical pinball, it also present many bizarre, innovative concepts. It consists of one huge table, which in turn consists of 3 main parts, each with its own set of flippers. Should your ball fall between the flippers it will drop to a lower level until finally you're at the bottom, and then you lose a life.

Each part of the table has its own quirks, secrets and purpose (for example, in the middle section you build a spaceship and have to protect it from two missile-firing guns on the right.

There are also hidden, or secret, stages in the game: one is an "egg" with four parts you have to crack, another is a breakout clone only with pinball mechanics and another is a bizarre "Doom pinball". There's also the ultra-secret (and very hard to get to) Llama pinball game.

Starball's five bonus tables

These tables pay homage to famous games of the past and present, such as Breakout, Space Invaders or Doom. You can unlock them by accumulating enough points during the game, or you can cheat from the DOS prompt.
