Featuring a bonus mode starring Nintendo's legendary character, Mario, you control our hero as he holds a platform used to keep the ball in the air. And don't forget—you also have to save Pauline. If she falls and hits the ground, you lose a ball, but if you save her and lead her to the exit, you'll get a nice little surprise! This game is fun and easy to learn, and includes bonus balls for high scorers. On top of that, it features a two-player alternating mode. Both pinball fans and novices alike will enjoy it!

The Official Nintendo Player's Guide (1987):


    They said it couldn't be done! But here it is--a pinball game that you can play on your Nintendo Entertainment System! All the action is there--from bumpers to double flippers. This pinball game even has a bonus round for extra fun and points. You won't believe the ball isn't made of steel as it bounces off the cushions and racks up those points.

    GAME PLAY: Your control pad operates the two flippers which are used to keep the ball in play as it tries to roll down and out of play at the bottom of the screen. The basic game has two screens with special shoots and bumpers galore! Hit all five of the cards for the royal flush, for instance, and you get a 5000-point bonus and a block post to help keep the ball in play. The bonus round has Mario running back and forth to keep the ball in play and save the falling maiden. You won't believe all the action in this video version of the great game of pinball. It's a ball!
