Pinball Dreams has balls of gold, sharks of orange
SouthPeak's Pinball Dreams is the latest attempt to fill the flipper-shaped hole in our hearts. Due to also appear on the Wii and PC, the game sports six tables, plus the option of playing with marble, oak, ivory or gold balls; serious questions, that require serious answers, no doubt.
The single shot we've received so far is ... not bad. Acceptable. We're a little unsure about the choice to squash the action into just one screen, but we'll refrain from judging too much until we see more of the game. Pretty sure sharks aren't orange, though. FYI, SouthPeak.

Man, I love pinball, and even virtual pinball. The main problem I have is that the free Space Cadet pinball on Windows is ususally better than any commercial offering as of late. That's a trend that I wish would change. I'm not knocking Space Cadet, but free games probably shouldn't make commercial ones look bad. Here's hoping this one is fun and has some longevity. Goals, unlockables, challenges, anything!

You ever tried the littlewing pinball games from Japan? I've yet to find a company that makes a better virtual pinball game.

So this isn't a port of the brilliant classic "Pinball Dreams", but a new game entirely with the same name? Lame.

I *WISH* someone would port Epic Pinball. It's THE greatest pinball video game ever and I still have DOSBox on my Mac so I can play it from time-to-time.
Also, why the insistance on 3D pinball? It doesn't work. Stick with 2D... especially on the DS.
