Description

It starts when you receive a note and map from your long lost grandfather, along with the promise of the adventure of a lifetime. You'll encounter dinosaurs, volcanoes, and man-eating sharks, as well as a tribe of cavemen to save. Your mission is to save the Forgotten Island.

There are 9 interconnected tables included for you to conquer. They have to be unlocked during the game and offer 2 or 3 settings per table. In comparison to most other pinball simulations the goals on a table are mostly not to get a high score but to solve missions like chasing away sharks. Also unusual are the 3D graphics: instead of a static top-down view the camera follows the pinball ball.

Trivia

Engine

From the installer to the in-game graphics, it appears that Adventure Pinball: Forgotten Island is based on the Unreal engine. The Unreal engine is typically used to make first-person shooter games, but in this case it was used for a pinball game.
