    Soooo, after reading the 'NDS Remakes' thread HERE I got a thinking about a NDS remake of the Amiga Pinball Dreams/Fantasy/Illusions game WIKI.

    I did some screen grabs and resized the tables to the NDS resolution...

    I think it could work pretty well.

    So, if any programmers fancy the project I'll do all the graphics, animations, music and sound. I'll make some nice title and table select screens and whatever else needs doing and you'll do the code.

    Anyone interested in taking on the project? [​IMG]

    Anyone who does a Pinball Dreams remake and DOESN'T do the Nightmare table will be receiving a dead bunny in the mail. [​IMG]

    You're forgetting the gap between the screens.

    It wouldn't be a bad idea for someone to release this as an official game on the DS. Pinball Dreams was a good game, they could also include Pinball Fantasies. It would be great if they made the pinball table over 2 screens. Pinball Dreams is still the best pinball game every released.

    There is Pinball Illusions as well as Dreams and Fantasies ...3 games with a total of 11 tables.. would make a great game.

    It's never gonna be releases officially as the rights are owned by Microsoft - and soon to be released on XBOX LIVE.

    Hmm, it'd be pretty cool.

    gbadev forum has alot of good devs around, however i don't know if they might just reject you. It's pretty rare that someone agrees to code a game idea someone else thought up.

    Plus the problem is that the original Pinball Dreams etc. on the Amiga had calculations for the ball physics written by a physics professor. Without those ball physics the game just doesn't seem the same, just try playing it on the SNES and you'll see what I mean.

    As for being written by homebrew coders, if I remember right (and remember this is going back a loooooong way) the game itself was written by crackers/coders from Magnetic Fields so it was essentially a professional homebrew project! lol If you can get the original dumps that were traded the info about the coding team is in the intro (I think it was Fairlight that released it).
