Advanced Pinball Simulator

Advanced Pinball Simulator is, obviously enough, a Pinball Simulation - but not a particularly advanced one. It features a pretty basic table with targets, rollovers and two sets of flippers, but doesn't have anything like multiball, ramps of magnasave.

The fame doesn't play particularly well, so unless you're really suffering from lackofpinballitis, you'd be better off saving your dosh for Time Scanner or one of the many other pinball games around.


Unrealistic ball control and lack of modern pin table features result in a lacklustre game.
