    Always on the move...
    Seems pretty decent for a 32 Mb ROM though I think Namco could have made something better (Sonic pinball owns it by far).

    Counting the days till Dragon Ball Z:Transformation is released (it has been delayed from 6/21 to 7/19 [​IMG] )
    BTW for those who're interested :Bleach advance should be released this summer in Japan (7/21) I guess they'll release a US version soon a t least that's what I hope [​IMG]
    One more thing Shin Bokura no Taiyou: Gyakushuu no Sabata should be released this summer too (Gosh another Boktai game :IMO 2 were largely enough unless I'm mistaken)

    I didn't know this was coming. I hope it's got better physics than Mario Ball. So, anyone played it yet?

    Was looking forward to this too, thought it was suppose to be out last week but hey its here now.

    Its ok, the ball feels to light for me though [​IMG] still better than Mario Pinball. Never beat Pinball Challenge Deluxe for me.

    I was playing Pokemon Pinball for the longest time.
    I'll check into Pinball Challenge Deluxe (thanks for the heads up) and Pacman Pinball when it reaches the newsgroup.

    I'd laugh if they decide to release the Boktai game in somewhere like Northern Norway where they only get a few hours sunshine.

    Considering the whole concept of the original pac-man, I'm actually somewhat surprised a digital pinball game hadn't been made before. (Or perhaps I'm mistaken and there is one.)

    Though I didn't know they were called "pac-dots"...I always assumed they were just dots, but pac dots makes me think they could be some sort of weird pac related entity. Perhaps pac babies!? Pac-man is an abortion doctor, isn't he!? This is all starting to make sense....

    You've may of played Pinball Challenge Deluxe before, as it has the tables from Pinball Dreams & Pinball Fantasies, which were both on the Amiga, PC & SNES. Shame they never ported the other 2 games for a sequel.

    Nice NFO and Release didn't even know this game was on its way out. As for the game itself It plays kinda awkward, whoever had the idea to drop the ball in the middle of the game rather than launching it is a moron however with the apperance of Dig Dug in the first 2 levels I am interested to see who else makes and apperance, maybe the dog from Dead To Rights?

    I've been wanting to try this.

    I see my favorite Pinball Challenge Deluxe was said and had interest in.

    That game was a EURO only release sadly. Game is made up of 2 packages of 4 tables from some old Amiga/DOS games called Pinball Dreams and Pinball Fantasies. Those until the Empire made Pro Pinball series came out were known as THE most accurate/fun pinball games around. The 2 packages were put into 1 group and for years I've enjoyed them. Took me almost a year but I found a copy on ebay in 04 and imported it from the UK and never regretted it. Funny bit of disgusting Ubisoft laziness trivia. Game has hiscore save, works on a flashrom, not on cart...too cheap to put in the save according to the dev'r.

    I supremely recommend the package as the ball physics are awesome, audio package is sweet, table designs are smart. You can set also from a 3->5 ball game. I suggest giving Stones 'N Bones a whirl as I've always felt it the best in the package. Also the Million Dollar Gameshow, Partyland, and Steel Wheels(think that's it) are awesome time wasters, but the others are mostly nice too.

    And sorry for 2 posts, but shadow. Actually this is the second Pac-Man pinball table. There was this semi-rare combination video game (top screen) and pinball game (lower area, real table) made in the 80s. It was pretty decent, but I can't remember the name of it.

    You better search for the PinMame release, I bet its been ported and emulated [​IMG]

    Anyway, I didnt expect this to come out.
    It looks pretty weird if you ask me, honestly I cant stand pinball that much o-o.
    I got burnt out of the genre after playing sonic pinball too much when it was out [​IMG]
    And I only play Sonic Pinball for the music >.>
    Devilsh and Dragon's Revenge (or whatever those two dragon pinball games were for sega genesis) are the best pinball (or pinball like) games in my opion.
    I guess I'll just have to try this one.
    Just looks like a more realistic pinball version of mario pinball >.>
    Dots instead of coins is all I see [​IMG]
    I hope it has some good mini games o-o

    Edit: you know, that Nfo makes me wanna make a mario clone game of non lameness with a GBA scene land map XD
    Or a nice soinc clone or something [​IMG]
    The map is funny [​IMG]

    The audio was the best thing, especially the Steel Wheels table. There were a few more in the series, Magic & Illusions are the only ones i remember but they kinda went downhill when other developers got involved.
