One more time, the veritable blast from the past, a legend amongst pinballs is back - on OS X!
This time we are giving you a HD-3D version with all the 4 original tables and it should work on basically all the Intel Macs - however some really old ones with a GMA950 GPU are not recommended.
20 years ago Pinball Dreams almost single-handedly created the pinball simulator genre. 20 years later it is still one of the best pinball simulations ever created with addictive tables giving hours and hours of challenge and fun!
The game has 3 different camera modes, full screen toggle and anti-aliasing.
Same great game with better graphics. The only glitch is the music, a lot slower than it was before on the Amiga.
Re: Slower Music
Actually the music plays at the same speed as the original Amiga game. The original game was designed for PAL-based Amigas which ran at 50 Hz (256 lines of video) instead of North America's NTSC-based 60 Hz (200 lines of video) Amigas. Therefore if you remember your Amiga running the music more quickly, or if the video seemed to be cut off at the bottom, you were likely running an NTSC Amiga which played PAL games ~16.7% faster framerate and ~16.7% faster music.
A nice 3D conversion of the original 2D game.
