Pinball Illusions is the successor to the Pinball Fantasies, using an upgraded game engine. The tables are Babewatch, Law & Justice, Extreme Sports, and (on PC CD versions) The Vikings. These contain ramps, bonus areas, and combo sequences to set up. All the artwork was produced in true 256 colors from the ground up for AGA Amigas and the PC, rather than originating in 32 colors on older Amigas.

New to this version is multiball: Pinball Illusions supports up to six balls simultaneously, in which case it switches to high-resolution mode. CD versions use CD audio for music.

A good pinball game that could've been great if it wasn't so buggy. DOS Roedie (5247)

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.

Version differences

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.
