Pinball on the TI?

Recommended Posts

Has anyone written a pinball game for the '99er?

Zero Zap comes close, but I want more! LOL

 

Any help would be helpful.

Yes, Micro Pinball by Software Specialties.  It's rather good. 

 

A version of David's Midnight Magic was at one time planned, but was never undertaken. 

 

The author of Micro Pinball described it as inspired by Raster Blaster for Apple II.

I’m not that much into pinball games on the TI-99/4a, but with todays knowledge and software tools a much better pinball game could be made. It could -and should if you ask me- include:

  • Speech (the TI-99/4a does have a great speech synthesizer. I’m not thinking about the built-in vocabulary but rather making new speech with qbox or similar tools)
  • Better sound-effects
  • Vertical scrolling and better animations

 

With Magellan some nice pinball maps could be made.

Yes!! Micro pinball looks like a lot of fun. I may have to try to run it somehow...

Until I can get Micro pinball, I'll have to settle with the vaguely pinball-ish game on the "VIDEO GAMES 1" command module...

 

Any port in a storm, I love pinball!
