    Default 8-Bit Pinball Games

    When I was a young boy, a long long time ago, Rollerball was my first Pinball Game I played on a computer. Later on I played a bunch of other games, including the fantastic Pinball Dreams/Fantasies & Illusions series on the Amiga.
    Recently I ran into Rollerball again, together with some other old 8-bit Pinball games:

    Rollerball: http://www.file-hunter.com/MSX/RollerBall.html
    Fireball: http://www.file-hunter.com/MSX/FireBall.html
    Trickboy: http://www.file-hunter.com/MSX/TrickBoy.html
    Thunderball: http://www.file-hunter.com/MSX/ThunderBall.html
    SquareDancer: http://www.file-hunter.com/MSX/SquareDancer.html
    Macadam Bumper: http://www.file-hunter.com/MSX/MacadamBumper.html

    You can play these online in your broswer. No need to install anything.

    Yes, they are slow. They are pixely, chunky & symplistic. But it gives you a good idea on how this all started. Have fun playing some of these oldies.

    Default Nes pinball games

    Check out "High Speed" & "Pinbot" for the NES.I think you can find emulators for them. I used to looooove playin' these two machines in the arcades.

    In the meantime, I have added 2 classic Pinball games (8 tables) for you to play online:

    Pinball Dreams: http://www.file-hunter.com/amiga/#Pinball_Dreams
    Pinball Fantasies: http://www.file-hunter.com/amiga/#Pinball_Fantasies

    You'll need a fast PC to play these tables in your broswer, but these are 2 classic 16-bit Pinball Games. The music can be glitchy (especially during the intros) but the tables are very well playable.

    That's nice to hear :-) It's also why I made that website. (not only for pinball though)
    Maybe an idea for (some) future tables? 8/16 bit (and maybe have a talk with the people from Pinball Dreams/Fantasies about revamped versions).
    What also would be cool: The 16-bit Partyland / Graveyard tables as single-ball mini-games inside a 8/16 bit table pack

    FWIW, both games available on the PSN and can be played on PS3, Vita, and PSP.

    I know... But I don't own any of those. They would be an insta-buy for me if they were released on the PS4, but the company who did those releases doesn't seem to exist anymore.
