Twelve pinball tables are ready for you to go through! A pretty nice pinball fun for the CPC and CPC+ lovers years after the successful old Macadam Bumper!
 
Review
Pinball MagicSTORY / GAMEPLAY
The game was released only on the Amstrad CPC home micros including its latest advanced models, the CPC+ and GX 4000 console. It is a typical pinball game having twelve colorful pinball tables in total. Each level can be finished by passing the ball to the "Exit" open at the very top of the table. This is not an easy task, trust me! The game is difficult enough, as the table is a bit small which makes the ball too fast when hitting on nearby obstacles returning to your pads like a rocket!...

GRAPHICS / SOUND
Technically the game is good, having colorful graphics and quite detail in each table. The action is smooth enough, a little bit slower than the CPC+ version. The Plus and GX4000 though, uses more colors while the ball animation feels a bit smoother (as expected due to the advanced Plus/GX hardware). Both versions though look good and playable enough. As far as the sound, the game here does not offer an introductory theme (in contrast to the CPC+) but offers a few typical in-game pinball-style sound FX.

Amstrad CPC 464/664/6128CPU: ZiLOG Z80 4MHZ
MEMORY: 64 KB or 128 KB of RAM depending on the model (capable of being expanded to 512k using memory extension boards)

SOUND: The CPC used the General Instrument AY-3-8912 sound chip, providing 3 channels Mono Sound (via internal speaker) but capable to offer Stereo Sound provided through a 3.5 mm headphones jack (with pretty impressive outcome!). Also, it is possible to play back digital sound samples at a resolution of approximately 5bit. This technique is very processor-intensive though.
