What's cool about it:

  • Nineteen massive tables based on themes from all corners of the globe, making Pinball World the largest pinball simulator of its time.
  • A set of interactive mini-games, which include everything from racing cars to submarines, link together the tables and keep the action going beyond each game of pinball.
  • Each and every table includes multi-directional scrolling and loads of realistic mechanical animations thanks to pinball simulation technology which was truly cutting edge in its time.

Overview:

All it takes is the flick of a flipper to span the globe in this pinball classic from Spidersoft. Play on tables based on locales from all over the world, earn enough points and you can trek your way through Africa to the North Pole. It’s not as simple as activating all the lights on a table, however. You’ll need to steer your ocean liner across the Atlantic and navigate harsh deserts in your buggy in a series of challenging mini-games if you really want to travel to every corner of the Earth.

Spidersoft’s novel twist on pinball guarantees something new and exciting with each table. Globetrotting gameplay and innovative simulation technology make Pinball World one of the most unique pinball games out there!

Pinball on a global scale

Posted on 2014-05-02 11:36:29 bywildweasel.442's avatarwildweasel.442:

Probably the most ambitious of 21st Century's pinball games, Pinball World has a LOT of tables on it, plus a neat meta-game where you can travel between tables with a variety of transportation, from planes to boats to underground tunnels. Tables are varied and interesting, loads of bonuses to unlock.
My biggest complaint, though, is that the main tables don't have very much toread more do in them. The bonus tables behave a bit more like traditional pinball, and have a fair amount of bonuses and places to rack up points, but the main tables probably only have 3 or 4 bonuses to each of them, and they're not always very easy to reach.
That said, if you're starving for more 21st Century pinball, this is far from the worst you can get.
(Now, GOG, if you're listening: can you get us Slam Tilt Pinball?)

Not exactly pinball

Something's missing here. Oh yeah...traditional drains, plungers, bumpers or anything that makes this interesting. Sure, the tables are colorful, but they are sparse and poorly designed. The music is grating after a few minutes. While there are interesting diversions on each table and the ability to move between them is good, you'll be repeatedly banging on your shift keys to repeatedlyread more go up a certain ramp to do so. It's a good idea executed poorly.
