Play It Pinball is based on the popular American table game of pinball which involves using a pair of flippers to direct a small ball into bumpers, thus scoring points.

The tables featured in this game are all in 3D and are based on real life tables that were around during the 1950's in America. The pinball tables have various American themed designs, which include Surf King, Western Sheriff, Horror and Baseball. The game also has all the features of a real pinball table, including the tilt option.

Originally released in Japan, it subsequently got a European release, but never a North American release.
