Although Digital Illusions never programmed on the Amiga again, 21st Century released Pinball Mania
as a supposed continuation of the series. It was bundled with the Amiga when Escom relaunched it.
Digital Illusions used the same 4 tables of this game in the PlayStation / Sega Saturn release True Pinball
. The difference? On the PlayStation & Saturn the tables were modeled in 3D.
The PC CD-ROM version has one more table that was not found in the original Amiga version: The Vikings.
This table was removed from the Amiga version at the last minute, as they felt it wasn't of a high enough quality to merit the game needing an extra disk. As both Pinball Dreams
and Pinball Fantasies
had four tables, as did most other pinball games of the day, this wasn't a popular decision.
