Video Pinball
(Atari)


Grade: C- (73.09)


To quote the instructions intro, "How many of you out there have always longed to be a pinball wizard? Some of you may have even spent time practicing your pinball wizardry in the local arcades. But now you've got the magic of pinball right in your own home." Hitting the three diamonds at the top increases the value of the bumpers. Hitting the Atari symbol 4 times gives you a free ball. Nudging is allowed, but too much results in a tilt, which ends the turn. The game looks pretty simple, but if you give it a chance, it can become additive.
