Microball

Microball is a pinball simulation written by Steve Evans, author of Guardian. Between one and four players each have five balls with which to register the highest score. The table is a fairly basic one, and features shoot targets, magnets, a bonus tube and rollovers.

The gameplay isn't brilliant, with none-too-realistic gravity and very digital flippers (that is, they only have two positions). Compared to what the now aging Pinball Construction Set is capable of producing, the play is bland, and even dedicated pinball fanatics will find it ultimately tiresome.
