True Pinball (Saturn)

Post by David » Thu Oct 09, 2008 6:51 am

Any Good?

Worth picking up from The Heroin Emporium (Cash Convertors) for three quid?

With the cavaet that I haven't played this since my Saturn packed up - yes. It's one of the Digital Illusions pinball series. IIRC I've got the PlayStation version as well.

I have the PS version too and for only three quid I'd say its probably worth picking up.

It's quite good, not as good as Pinball Dreams and Fantasies but still a very fun pinball game

Hey Japanese game fans - it isn't as good as Fantastic Pinball by Tecnosoft either! :)

The PS version is awesome. I can't imagine the Saturn version is any different.

A good enough pinball game but the ps version has no high score save feature. Shame that.

For £3? Even if you only get a few hours out of it, that's still okay vfm.

I like True Pinball more than Pinball Graffitti on the SS.
Thoughts and prayers.

I don't think the Playstation version is that good - it plays just fine but it's a remake of an old Amiga 500 title only with the high score save facility taken out!

My old brain tells me True Pinball on Saturn was in low res - as opposed to the PS version, which was in hi res.

But mind you : my brain is old. It might be wrong. Can anyone confirm?

Painfully addictive though.
