Pinball Dreams is an arcade pinball simulator developed by Digital Illusions and published by 21st Century Entertainment in 1992 for Amiga only. In the following years it was ported to PC, Atari ST, SNES, Game Gear and Gameboy. This is the first in the pinball series that includes Pinball Fantasies, Pinball Illusions, Pinball Mania, and Slam Tilt.
Not just the first of a series, it was also the first game of its kind to grace the Amiga. Pinball Dreams has four tables with their own individual themes: Ignition, Steel Wheel, Beat Box, and Nightmare. The game features decently realistic physics that governs the behavior of the balls as they ricochet around the table. Table setups are also kept within the realm of what is possible in the real world. The game received good reviews once it was released and was praised for its sound and graphics. Any fan of arcade pinball will enjoy this title, it’s the arcade experience without the arcade.
