The making of... Pinball Fantasies

I''m wondering what happened to the Pinball Fantasies article promised for issue 25? That, and Pinball Dreams, are still the best pinball games of all, and I was looking forward to reading more about them...

Has it been held over 'til issue 26 perhaps?

Which one was the one that had a main table which led off to an underwater table, a western table and another one that I can't quite remember ? I never had it on the amiga but used to play the DOS version when I first went to uni I think.

I wanted my Ghostbusters feature to tie in with Mat's Activision article, so I pushed Pinball Dreams and Fantasies back an issue. It's all been designed and is in issue 26 :)

Pinball Dreams!!! Wow, the memories man, the memories. I remember buying this for my PC back in the nineties and spending an unhealthy amount of time playing it. Hey, hang on, it's triggered another memory... actually PC Format gave a 3-ball demo of the first 'Rocket Ship' level on their cover disk. Yeah... that's right. And I played that for hours on end before giving in and buying the retail copy.

Then a year later I think a box set was released with Pinball Dreams, Pinball Fantasy's and two other pinball games ?? I bought that as well.

That was the start of a short pinball fetish on my part :D I remember having Judge Dredd pinball too, which was good fun, and of course, for the Playstation 1, the amazing 'The Web' which was brilliant and still is!

Pinball Illusions could of been one of the others?

It could but I think it was Pinball Mania, which used the same engine.
