I doubt there is any spoken text in the game. Don't know about sound cues. Visual feedback is a bit poor.
- Max resolution is 1024x768 with 65536 colours. It is still playable.
- On some system configurations flickering may occur randomly like a stroboscope, causing headaches.
- Physics feels off. Often it feels like gravity has been cranked down a few notches, making the game feel strangely slow. And yet, in some loops the ball feels like it's accelerated to beyond light speed. Good luck!
- Most of the hits tend to be biased towards the center, makes aiming to the edges of the table rather difficult.
- Visual feedback of the ball hitting things is poor, making it seem like magic sometimes when a ball changes direction!
- There is no 'pull the plunge', pressing enter just insta-shoots the ball away.
- The game only has one table.
- The table concept is attractive. Now if Pinball FX2 could copy this...
- Some missions in the game are interesting. There are a few minigames included.
- The art quality is nice and must've been decent for its time.
- Nice to see the evolution of pinball games. (Anyone remember Pinball Dreams?)
After having played Pinball FX2 for a while, this game is quite a downgrade. But then, it's from 1998! Only recommended if you're feeling nostalgic.
If you manage to get this as part of a cheap bundle, go ahead! Otherwise it might be a waste of money because it's so dated.
If you want a real pinball game for modern systems, I can recommend Pinball FX2 instead.
