In 1995 21st Century Entertainment licensed several already-released pinball
tables to the online distribution company Instant Access, which bundled them
in a compilation named Perfect Pinball. The pack features content of three
* Pinball Dreams (1993): Ignition, Steel Wheels, Beat Box, Nightmare
* Pinball Dreams 2 (1994): Safari, Revenge of the Robot Warriors, Stall Turn, Neptune
* Pinball Fantasies (1994): Partyland
Of the nine tables, only three are playable – Safari, Stall Turn and Revenge
of the Robot Warriors. The other six must be purchased and unlocked via the
included Instant Access browser. The basic price is £5 for one table (~ $8 in
1995), £12 for three (~ $19), payable by debit or credit card. The activation
procedure requires buyers to call a local phone number and exchange 18-digit
While the game itself remains a pure DOS program, the Instant Access browser
requires Windows 3.1 or better to run.
All tables exist in the original low-res VGA version (320×200) as well as in a
high-res SVGA alternative (640×350). The CD contains two audio tracks.
Perfect Pinball includes the “History of Pinball” feature, a database with
facts and artworks for a broad selection of historical pinball machines.
