Pinbat is a combination of Pinball and Breakout. The player launches a marble from a plunger at the right side and the table consists of various bumpers and other objects like in real pinball but instead of flippers at the bottom there is a bat that the player moves left and right in an attempt to hit the marble before it goes out of play. At sidewalls the marble obeys the laws of reflection but at some objects like stars and grey blocks the marble is thrown off at a random angle. By hitting stars and other targets the player earns points. The game consists of five rounds each with a different table design and each round goes on until the player has lost three marbles.
