Video Pinball
By Alternative

Published in A&B Computing 4.06

Surprisingly playable budget software for once with this simulation of pinball that, sadly, does not have an option to create new tables like the last pinball game I saw, Kansas' Pinball Arcade.

Graphics and play are simple with keys just for the two flippers and to reload a ball. Nice movement off the bumpers, a fairly constant bonus score and a delightful major bonus flashing screen when the ball enters a side track all make this amusing to play. At times the game does suggest that a bit more development could have been done - such as the slow ball movement - but on the whole I think you'll be pleased with this one.
