The whole game is a nicely designed package but these competitive machines are the standouts. The Sports machines utilize a single swinging flipper that can be positioned near the goal or center line while the Battle machines use standard pinball flippers that can also be positioned for attack or defense. The object in both modes is to get the ball into the opponent’s outhole in a fast, fun mix of pinball and foosball.
They say that variety is the spice of life. When it comes to Rock 'n' Ball, I'm a believer. It may not be the best pinball game out there, but it is one of the most versatile.

Rock ‘N Ball is a generous cartridge, and one of the best pinball titles on the NES. The tables it gives to the players aren’t the most in-depth or flashy, but they’re solid enough to come back to, especially if you have friends who enjoy video pinball. Disregard its worthless name (and the fact that Namco excised the special ‘Pac-Man’ table from the Famicom version – doh!) and, hot dog, you have a wiener.
