Thanks Pinman, ther's a few names there I recognise as good 'uns. Just need to find a decent download source that doesn't keep me hanging around forever. 10 minues for 1 table from AJ's is a bit excessive.

Well,one solution,could be to checkout Ebay.I obviously realise that nobody likes to pay for stuff which can be obtained for free,from the net,but since you can often buy the complete set of tables,for the price of a disk.....a little postage,and maybe a couple of extra quid stuck on top,then it could well be worth it,to save yourself a lot of hassle.I'd offer to help you out myself,only my own set is far from complete.....you've probably got more than i personally have :D .

I hear Pinball of the Dead for the GBA is a good one too.

Metroid Prime Pinball on the DS is pretty good & I keep meaning to check out the Pokemon pinball games as well.

In my opinion (with the exception of True Pinball for the PS1) the amiga had some of the best pinbball games ever. And here they are;

Pinball Dreams
Pinball Fantasies
Pinball Illusions
Pinball Mania (This game actually sucked and came bundled with Escom
A1200s)
These and True Pinball were created by the same devs.

A few console recommendations. Not sure which are emulated on PSP though.

Revenge of the Gator (Game Boy)
Dragon's Fury (Mega Drive) or
Devil Crash (PC Engine) Basically the same game as Dragon's Fury
Pinbot & High Speed (NES)

And for a more modern machine, Flipnic on PS2.

What was the C64 one, I think it gets a mention in the mag... I only vaguely recall the table scrolling as you were the ball (or at least that's how I remember it). Budget game I think. Its annoying me now.

Thats the one. Only now I'm quoting you do I realise you linked to it. I've been off rummaging round Lemon64. Stupid forum and its 'hide the link' shenanigans.

That looks rubbish now, but I know we played it for ages so it must've been half decent. Not sure if I still have that on tape...

Hence why I underline the links. If anyone from Imagine is listening, FOR THE LOVE OF GOD, PLEASE CHANGE THE STYLE OF LINKS ON THIS BOARD, TO MAKE THEM DIFFERENT FROM STANDARD BODY COPY. Thanks.

I actually still rather like it, but it's more of an arcade game than a de-facto pinball game.

For "purer" C64 pinball I'd suggest Codemasters' Advanced Pinball Simulator and Microball (although I find the flippers are on that rather awkward)

Actually, I did, but apparently Internet Explorer for Windows ignores the PHPBB underline style entirely.

Seriously, Imagine web gurus: update the style sheet for this forum. It's beyond a joke now that it's still impossible to distinguish links from normal text. It's not like it'd take very long to whop a {text-decoration: underline;} or a {color: #006d90;} a:hover {text-decoration: underline;} into your CSS, especially seeing as I've just done the work for you.
