Description of Pinball Dreams

Pinball Dreams on the Amiga, developed by Swedish developer Digital Illusions, ex-demo group members, was a huge hit and a revolution in the genre.

This PC conversion was done by "they-proved-to-be-uncapable" Spidersoft and it doesn't keep up with the original game. The tables are the same, four different well-designed multi-screen tables called Ignition, Steel Wheels, Beat Box and Nightmare. Also the great music and sound effects have been carried over by a MOD replayer - however I didn't get sound to work on my PCI card. Still, it's lacking something... Probably it's because the graphics use some tweaked graphics mode, which looks a bit squashed and dull compared to the Amiga game. But still, it's a good pinball game for your PC, a decent conversion for its time. Also check out the excellent sequel, better converted to the PC, called Pinball Fantasies.

Improved sound on the SNES? I was under the impression that they just ported the MOD player to the SNES - aka the sound quality is about the same...
