Pinball Dreams on Atari?

Recommended Posts

Yes, G2F is usable mainly in static pictures.

 

I'll be glad to see this game even in 4 colors (that wouldn't hurt me bad, really! :) )

I just have to pop in and say that that C64 version is bloody impressive! Absolutely stunning work, WVL.

Lol

 

Therte appears to be alot of bitching in this topic.

 

just remember this should be fun if someone takes on the project to do this what ever they produce is better than nothing. if some one does something someone else can take on the challenge and improve it but just start.

 

My first game was Snakes like on the old Nokia phones written in basic the only thing i ever did in basic but you have to start some where.

 

hehehehehe

 

Just do it

interesting in that once there are enough ports to other platforms the ideas (and code) from the others can and sometimes does lead to something amazing for our platform. Should be interesting to see all of them dissected and then watching the best implementation possible on the ole Atari come to fruition... we are light years ahead of what we used to have in tools and really almost all other areas for creations like this to be done.

Yeah - sure would be cool to have something other than Midnight Magic.  I'd love a port of Pinbot :)

OMG! PINBOT would be a crazy and dizzying achievement on just about any 8 bit machine... the ramp, the number of bumper pins... the game was insane in the flesh let alone to be simulated on any 8 bit. That's a blast from the past, before ranting about all that was going in with the game it might be best to search up some links to SHOW how awesome the full table was!

Thanks for mentioning what was an awesome pinball game! Best played in a dim room so you could see what it looks like lit up.

 

EDIT  for a link...

further EDIT - looks like there were some variations in the game, black spin cup versus red spin cup and what lights and doesn't... didn't know that... just thought what I saw was all there was... cool stuff!

I have never played the original, so I do not know how well it compares, but there does exist an NES version of this game.
