    Released in 1996, developed by Cunning Developments.

    I think this is just one table, or not? There are more “Pro Pinball” games in the series, but I think “The Web” is the only one for DOS?

    It does look very fancy, this one.

    Is it any good? Please share your thoughts!

    The Pro Pinball games were the most realistic games of their time, in terms of physics and table design.

    I recall there was an interview with one of the developers where they said they originally weren’t going to have a pause button. To pause, you’d have to hold the ball in place with the flipper. Pretty hardcore.

    Also, the Pro Pinball tables allow you to change all sorts of internal settings, such as how worn-out the table is and what angle it’s tilted at. Never seen that in another pingame.

    For info: The Web, Timeshock, and Big Race USA all have DOS versions. Fantastic Journey doesn’t as far as I know.

    Timeshock and Big Race USA are both on archive.org. Beware though, archive.org will try and send the whole 700MB cd through the browser the first time
