Moby ID: 6447
Commodore 64 Specs


A single classical-style pinball table is provided in this simulation. A table editor is also provided — this allows you to choose a shape for the table and arrange the component parts as you wish. Up to four players can take it in turns, each with five balls in turn.

Unusually, the default table has multiple flippers at the bottom of the table, as well as some located higher up. Use them to return a ball higher on table and to prevent it being lost at the bottom of the table. Hitting some valuable areas of the table gives you a bonus. Gain as many points as possible to rack up a high score.

My first flipper

The Good
What attracted me at first of this game, it was that was the first pinball game that I played on a PC. It had some nice effects, and it was interesting to have an editor, so you could make your own pinball tables.

The Bad
On the low side, I have to complain about the lack of different tables that could make the game more interesting and replayable.

The Bottom Line
And old game, it was kinda interesting years ago, but I don't care to play it again. If abandonware is up to you, there are better options for pinball.

Cancelled Apple IIGS port

Was also in development for the Apple IIGS system. Although unreleased, a beta considered to be complete leaked out in 1991. The website WhatIstheAppleIIGS offers an amusingly scathing summary of the game, noting that "The ball follows no physical laws that I'm familiar with. I've even began to wonder if it hasn't been programmed with its own unique AI!"
