Epic Pinball

(prices updated 9/20 9:43 AM )

Description official description

Epic Pinball is a pinball video game played from a 2D top-down view within a scrollable window. The game was distributed on floppy disks in three separate packs of 4 tables each:

  • Pack 1 (Android, Pot of Gold, Excalibur, Crash and Burn)
  • Pack 2 (Magic, Jungle Pinball, Deep Sea, Enigma)
  • Pack 3 (Cyborgirl, Pangaea, Space Journey, Toy Factory)

The shareware version of the game (and an early retail version) included only the original "Android" table (later versions contained an updated version called "Super Android"). Some tables were available as a separate releases as well as in much bigger compilations.

Each table has up to four flippers, giving the player the possibility to control the ball uniquely during the game. The tables are themed, making each table individual on its own way.

The Good
Everything, starting with the music (which is awesome), through the graphics (which are awesome) and the great collection of intuitive tables (which are awesome).

The Bad
The African Safari and Magic tables kindof suck.

The Bottom Line
Get it, play it and you won't regret it.

The ratings only go up to five and I want to rate it eleven

The Good
This was the first game I ever owned that was released in installments. Each package contained the basic game and menu system together with four or five tables. I had packs 1 & 2 so that meant nine tables in all.

I must have owned it back in 1994/5 and the whole family played it. There was competition to set the highest score on each table and at one point this led to rationing access to the PC in one hour sessions. It was the ideal game for us at that time, easy enough for any of us to play, interesting enough that we all wanted to play it, and with enough bonuses and mini games to remain challenging for ages.

It's now 2012 and I've just loaded two tables that I can play using the DOSBOX emulator and they still hold my attention.

The music in these games is excellent. I played the game again today, just the Jungle and Enigma tables, and it still holds its own against other pinball games I've played, and uninstalled, over the years.

The Bad
Only two things really, one being that eventually the rest of the family had better scores than me on all tables, and the other being that my wife eventually got such a high score on the Deep Sea table that it was stored as a humongous negative number.

The Bottom Line
An oldie and a goldie. It runs in DOS so you'll probably need an emulator to play it but, if you get the chance, give it a go.

I've just re-installed two tables and would not hesitate to install more when I can.

The only pinball game I own and enjoy

The Good
Big tables with great personality each one (that girl table really has some nice personality eh?) nice music and great physics, my favourite table was 'The Android' you had to bring it to life by hitting some spots in the table, really innovative and original.

The Bad
Some of the tables are a bit silly and the ball-launching game was the same as the tilt key, some times it sucked getting your table accidentally tilted...

The Bottom Line
Im not an expert in pinballs but if you are a pinball maniac you should like Epic Pinball a lot.

OEM version

Acer used to package Epic Pinball in their early to mid 90's desktop PCs. It came with three tables: Toy Factory, Space Journey, and Pangaea.

Registered version

The floppy disk 'registered version' does not contain Epic Pinball Pack 3.

Shareware version

The original Shareware version lets you play only the Android table, although all of the others are included on the menu. Selecting the other tables shows them, but tells you to contact Epic to access them.
