Come get some pinball!

Balls of Steel, a collection of five testosterone-packed pinball tables designed specially for the toughest of gamers, so hardcore that they had to put Duke Nukem on one of them, is available on GOG.com, for only $5.99.

So, you thought you would play yourself some pinball, did'ya? Perhaps you thought pinball is an easy game. Wrong! It takes a real gamer to handle the flippers. If you're not prepared, this game is going to make you cwy like a wittle gawl. Do you ever have pinball dreams? Well, welcome to the pinball nightmare! Just look at the title. Look at it, maggot! Is the game called Rainbow Unicorn Paradise Pinball? No! Is it called Magicall Flipper Fluffy Joyride? No! It's called Balls of Steel, and that's exactly what you need to play it and score high.

Balls of Steel features five pinball tables, none of them for the faint of heart. Hardcore horror, solid Sci-Fi, buckets of bullets, and tons of testosterone are the key design feature in this one-of-a-kind pinball game. With everything you could expect from a fast-paced flipper-arcade, including crazy multi-ball action, and a guest star appearance by Duke Nukem himself, this game will make any pinball fan sweat. With joy!

Today, Duke Nukem asks you one question only: are you tough enough to play some real hardcore pinball? If you think you know how to handle Balls of Steel, grab'em on GOG.com, for only $5.99!

G-Doc: We've had some technical issues today, so some games and newsposts might have been missing for some of you for a while. It should be all fine now. Sorry for any confusion this might have caused!
You know, no need to say "today" as every new release, there are hiccups and we love to check them quickly and report those errors.

park_84: Nice, thought it could be nicer if that extra 6th table were included in the game.

Too bad that it is a 3rd Party Expansion, so I doubt we will see it here... Wildfire offers it for free on their website, but the download does not work: http://www.wildfire.com.au/content/standard.asp?name=Devils
Pinballs aren't normally my cup of tea, but is nice to see more Apogee/3D Realms games here, I hope with time GOG releases all their old catalogue
I will never understand people who play pinball games.
I'm very glad to see the Apogee/3D Realms games coming here at a good pace. Thanks, GOG!
Like I posted earlier YAY!
Good or bad, compatibility problems made me uninstall all my pinball games just last night; they were no longer worth the hassle. I always like to have one of these bad boys ready on the desk top for a quick spin so I am actually VERY gratefull for this addition. Thank You GOG. :-)

So, anyone got 5.99 they can loan me untill payday? :P Tell you what, I'll play you for it. Best 2 out of 3 on the Duke table! Any tilting and you lose automatically and outright!
This is one of the better pinball games imo, I specially like the bombsquad and sience table.
I want to get this, but I'm afraid I'm not tough enough for such hardcore pinball.

Hey… that's not Epic Pinball! *slaps GOG around a bit with a large trout*
I'm not a huge fan of pinball myself, but the real problem is... seriously, digital pinball? Can it be even close to the real experience?
This is an excellent old game. Well worth $5.99!
