Who doesn't love a good old-fashioned pinball showdown to celebrate the weekend and our great pinball promo? For the next week we'll be accepting submissions in the Pro Pinball Fantastic Journey high score competition! All you have to do to enter -- in addition to owning a copy of the game here at GOG.com -- is send a screenshot of your highest score to users@gog.com. Next Friday at noon EDT we'll award the top 3 scores with a free game of their choice from the GOG.com catalogue! Pinball wizards, let's see what you've got -- there's no limit to the number of times you can enter (though you can only win once)! If you don't own Pro Pinball Fantastic Journey yet, you're in luck -- it's just $4.79 as part of this weekend's pinball promo!
And the winners are...
1st: xanni with a whopping 4,149,967,180 points!
2nd: Namur with a no less impressive 2,874,481,590 points!
3rd: Shadowcat with a close third of 2,494,566,450 points!

Nice try!
But it'll take more than the chance of a free game to get me to play pinball over the other games here :D

lol +1 im afraid i'll have to agree!
Bucking the trend in this thread, but you can count me in....
Great idea, great competition!
Nice contest, I played only one pinbal, BRUSA but enjoied it pretty much. Maybe i bought game and do some nice score, good reason to have pinball in my gog collection :-).
Nice contest, but the 'buy in' is kind of confusing me regarding the rules.
How are you guys going to tell the screenies from the 3 balls regular games scores from the ones where the player spent 20/30/50/etc credits on extra balls ?
Edit: The 'buy in' is the option to spend credits on extra balls at the end of any game.

Same with difficulty as you could probably just set to maximum balls, set to easiest level and so forth =/
May the player win!
Y'know, once you buy a game from the pinball promo, they've already won. So I guess you're free to try any tricks to get the highest score. By the way, if you own Photoshop and are good at it, there's no need for extra balls or easiest levels.
I would've loved to get my hands on one of these, but I've actually maxed out my credit card on my vacation trip and am now struggling to not fall under any promo spells at least for a couple of weeks.

Yes, i'm sure everybody will go for the extra easy settings at least for contest purposes :)
Regarding game mode, i'm under the impression that the "Grand Champion" Score doens't take into account the games where the 'buy in' option was used, it only accounts for scores achieved on regular 3 balls games, so i guess those will be the only screenies that count.
Still, some clarification about what screenies can be entered would be nice.

I think you're missing the point. It's not the chance to win a free game that interests me. It's having fun with the challenge.
That's what I've been doing all day. Having fun with the challenge :)

Nice contest. I wonder how much points the winner will have (and thus, what kind of scores have a chance of winning)? A couple of hundreds of millions? A few billions...?

I don't think that would work. I *suppose* the staff runs an originality check on submitted screens in such cases (there are apps to tell wether someone has tempered with a particular image or not).

My best 'Grand Champion' Score (no buy in of extra balls) so far is 2.2 billions and change, and i didn't managed to finish the Island sequence cause the damn thing is timed :)

C'mon, a couple of hours of practice and im sure you'll be posting a higher score.
Oh, and this is on extra easy settings, since i'm assuming that's what everybody else will go for.
