Attack from Mars and Starship Troopers are my 2 favourite tables on pinmame at the moment. I kinda play Batman Returns a bit' the table isnt great but the sound is pretty decent.

When talking about Amiga Pinball games, Dreams/Fantasies/Illusions always gets mentioned but you shouldn't forget about Slam Tilt which is a truly excellent game and at least as good as "the big 3"

I would say it's quite a bit better than the so-called big three...

I like the Dirty Harry pinball machine- all the classic Eastwood quotes are there. I also like the Addams Family one too, though playing it on the visual pinball emulator just doesn't capture the original feel of it.

Macadam Bumper on the Spectrum was a fantastic pinball game too. Don't be fooled by the odd ball physics.

I loved playing Pinball Dreams on the Amiga. The Steel Wheel table was my favourite. I do play Pinball Fantasies in Dosbox (which I also loved and had fond memories of playing on my 486 SX with the massive fish bowl monitor!!). I think Pinball Fantasies is coming to Xbox Arcade.

I had never heard of this game until recently when I've read about it in retro forums like this one. Pretty strange since it was released in 1996 and I was a hardcore A1200 user back then. I would love to try it but I can't find it anywhere.

It looks great:

My favorites are:

Cyclone
Black Knight 2000 (own this one)
High Speed
Black Hole
Elvira and the Party Monsters (believe it or not it's actually pretty good)

Medival Madness which has already been mentioned is also great.

You can play all of these in Visual Pinball, but if you get the chance to play the real thing, be sure to try them!

Starwars is fairly good in Pinmame. Lots to do, with plenty of sound, speech, bonus stuff etc etc. Also try The Addams Family, Twilight Zone and Black Hole.

Future Pinball is too demanding for my computer, i have no 3D accelerator in it. I've started to play PinMAME alot because of this thread though! It's awesome to be able to return to the games that I spent way to much money on back in the early 90s.

My favourites at the moment are:

Creature from the Black Lagoon
Indiana Jones
Star Wars

If you can run Virtual Pinball, a few years ago i made a Virtual Pinball tablewith a Bubble Bobble theme. It's not finished, and it kinda sucks, but it's sort of Retro ;)
