1st Person Pinball

1st Person Pinball

Commodore Amiga - Released - 1989

First Person Pinball is a solid but little-known early pinball game from Tynesoft. Although there is only one table, the game's highlight lies in the ability for up to four players to compete for the high score table, good graphics, and reasonable ball mechanics. Overall, a nice little early pinball title that looks great and plays well, although not in the same league as Macadam Bumper in terms of table design: the First Person Pinball table is quite generic. Great for the sake of completing pinball fans' collection, but doesn't really offer a lot of play value compared to other games.

1st Person Pinball

1st Person Pinball

Atari ST - Released - 1989

Tynesoft were almost certainly the first people to try a first person pinball game with this ambitious program. Up to four players could join in, including 2 computer players to show you how it's done. The game can be played from a more traditional overhead-view mode, which makes it easier to tell where the bumpers are in relation to the flippers, and is recommended for learning the game. Most of those bumpers are single-colour and arranged in a straightforward pattern. There are three different gameplay speeds and 2 possible levels of ball bounce.
