Pinball Dreams

Pinball Dreams is a pinball simulation video game developed by Digital Illusions and originally released for the Amiga in 1992. It spawned several sequels, including Pinball Fantasies and Pinball Illusions. The MS-DOS port was digitally released by Rebellion Developments along with its sequel and Pinball Mania on February 22, 2011 on GOG.com with support for Microsoft Windows.[3] It received an OS X build on April 23, 2013;[4] and a Linux build on August 19, 2014.[5]

Gameplay

The game’s four tables each had a theme, as do most real-life pinball & Panchinko machines. The version of Pinball Dreams bundled with the Amiga 1200 had a bug which rendered most of Beat Box’s advanced features non-functional.

  • “Ignition”, themed around a rocket launch, planets, and space exploration. The Expert Software‘s Pinball 2000 port of the game renamed this table “Rocket”.
  • “Steel Wheel”, themed around steam trains and the Old West.
  • “Beat Box”, themed around the music industry, charts, bands and tours.
  • “Nightmare”, themed around a graveyard, ghosts, demons, nightmares and generally evil things. Unlike the other tables in the game, the name of the table in the menu did not reflect the name displayed on the table itself—”Graveyard”. Some ports of the game (notably the GameTek port to the Game Boy) name this table “Graveyard” in the menu as well.

Reception

PublicationScore
Power Unlimited80/100(DOS)[8]

Pinball Dreams was a commercial success, selling more than 650,000 copies in its debut year.[9]

Pinball Dreams was overall received positive by press reviews.[10][11][12] Electronic Gaming Monthly gave the Game Gear version a 5.8 out of 10, commenting that “Pinball never really worked well on portable systems and Pinball Dreams is no exception. The boards are huge, but the game is a little slow.”[13]

In 1993 Computer Gaming World criticized the PC version of Pinball Dreams as having “the worst physical model” of four reviewed games, and disliked the “jerk[y]” scrolling.[14] The magazine said in June 1994 that Pinball 2000 “is an average title at a better than average price”.[15] In 1996 the magazine ranked Pinball Dreams as the 119th best game of all time, stating, “Smooth scrolling and great ball physics made this Amiga game a wizard’s choice.”[16] In 2011, Wirtualna Polska ranked it as the fourth best Amiga game.[17]
