Description of Pinball Construction Set

Based on the same engine as Music Construction Set, Pinball Construction Set is another original application that remain as fun and playable today as it was years ago. The program lets you construct a pinball table from the ground up: place hoops, targets, rails, and many other components on the table, then play your creation.

Definitely one of the best uses of 34KB I've ever seen. Great design, great game. Two thumbs up!

I remember playing with this on the Apple ][; I remember it wasn't the DOS version, cuz I remember the colours from the Apple, vs the CGA. LOL

Ah, I have some FOND memories of CGA games, but not for Pinball. ;)

I created some mad designs back then.. but ultimately I kinda "cheated", by lining up lots of points scoring bumpers, just to see how far I could take it.

That got boring rather quickly - LOL! - and it was followed by more reasonable designs, with "targets" in the upper field which rather honed one's use of the flippers, by timing etc, to get the right angles...

A well-programmed game, I'd say.. really gave a decent sense of "real pinball".

I never did get the knack for "balancing" how often or when to "nudge" the table, but learned to moderate it, to avoid going TILT!
:D

CGA graphics. No comment, just CGA.

Loved this game back on my Apple II+. I installed this on a Compaq Portable and the program runs. I can save a file, but when I go to open it, it opens and then freezes when I hit Quit to go to the table editor. Its really too bad.
