From the Manufacturer

    Dream Pinball

    The game principle is classically simple: keep the ball in play as long as you can and score as many points as possible! That's just like the real-life pinball machines you know.

    The developers of Dream Pinball 3D have done their utmost to create a flipper simulation that provides a genuine, live pinball atmosphere and feeling - but there are two decisive differences between this game and mechanical flipper machines:

    First off, our 6 machines take up a lot less space and, secondly, as a gamer you can flip those balls on your PC day and night - this pinball hall never closes! So in time you'll learn the ins and outs of our pinball machines much better and faster than you would do in a game arcade or hall.

    • Balls made out of 6 materials (steel, two kinds of wood, marble, ivory, gold) with various ballistic characteristics
    • Multi-ball with up to 3 balls at once
    • 6 tables with various themes, individual sounds and music for each table
    • Multiplayer mode for up to 4 gamers
    • 6 dynamic and one fixed camera position

Fun: 3.0 out of 5 stars   
I was browsing through the Amazon game downloads page and came across this game. It reminded me of an ancient pinball game that I used to play on Windows 97 back in the days. That game used to be my study-break. So, I thought: why not try this 3D pinball game, and enjoy the nostalgia from the past, while cooling down my brains from studying phospholipid bilayers?
Also, it was on sale: four bucks. How can things go wrong for four bucks?

.... Well, I lost all my four bucks.

After I installed the game, I was asked to enter the serial code, which I did. After that, it told me I had to activate the game via internet or phone. Although I am not a fan of any game activation, I understand the reason behind it, so I activated it. Like all other games, I did not have to register to play, so I didn't.

So, I played a few games.
Well, as far as gameplay goes, it's all that you can expect from a pinball game. It has good physics, I like the graphics, and obviously no storyline. To be fair, I was pleasantly impressed with the overall gaming experience.

I came back later to play this game, and to my surprise, it asked me to enter the serial code AGAIN! It was just like I have never played it before. Well, I entered it, and activated it once again. The problem was that I had to repeat the process all over everytime I launched the game. Was my computer weird? Well, I uninstalled it and reinstalled a couple of times. The result? The same. In the end, I just deleted the program and files completely and never looked at it again.

It's up to your choice, I guess. But I don't want to play a game that asks me to enter the serial code & activate everytime I wish to play. Of all, a pinball game? HELL, NO.

3.0 out of 5 stars Not nearly as great as the hype. February 7, 2008
Platform for Display:PC
Fun: 3.0 out of 5 stars   
First off you have to register or you can only play one table in demo mode. The e-mail registration form didn't work so I had to call the automated line and get the code. This is just absurd for a $15 game. The title screens at the beginning apparently are unskippable. Now the actual gameplay isn't very good either. Sure, there are tons of ways to play... but that doesn't mean much. I think it's just a barely mediocre pinball game slathered generously with turd polish. The special effects add little to nothing to the actual game. I'm glad I didn't wait a month and pay twice as much to get it on Wii. Hopefully William's new pinball game doesn't suck. This game is full of annoyances.

5.0 out of 5 stars Best Pinball since Epics Extreme Pinball April 20, 2008
Platform for Display:PC
Fun: 5.0 out of 5 stars   
This is the first pinball since Extreme Pinball back in the 90's that I have found addicting, it's not perfect however most of the flaws are over come by the great gameplay.
First the bad.

1: As a previous reviewer pointed out, the effects for hitting targets, bumpers, etc are the same across all the tables, they could have been more creative with this, especialy for a pixel shader 2.0 game.

2: Once again for a graphicaly advanced game you would think it would support wide aspect monitor resolutions such as 1440x900, however it only supports 4:3 modes up to 1600x1200, fortunately with a 16:9 toggle which allows the game to at least be displayed with the proper aspect.

2.5: Main menu is displayed in a lower resolution than the actual game engine, causing annoying mode switching between tables. Anyone remember the first Half Life?

Other than small details the game otherwise is truly excellent if you enjoy pinball on the pc. The Amber Moon table (AKA: Two Worlds) is an obvious favorite and for good reason, it's easy enough to keep a game going for at least a short while and offers smooth game play with a slow progression of objectives to keep it interesting. The Monster table is also pretty good, however I found the other tables really pale compared to Amber Moon, maybe this is just personal preference.
Another strong point is the cost of this game, which really nullifies any flaws I can find up to this point, for $15 on DVD with a small but decent manual I really feel I got a great deal.

3.0 out of 5 stars Worth every penny.....of $0.29! February 2, 2010
Platform for Display:PC|Verified Purchase
Fun: 3.0 out of 5 stars   
Being a pinball game lover of both realistic and virtual pinball games, I decided to purchase Dream Pinball for my pc. I figured that since it was released in 2008, it must be even better than Microsoft Pinball Arcade and Pro Pinball's Big Race USA, Time Shock, and The Web. After all, these games came out more than 10 years ago and although they are very good in their own right, surely improvements would be made with the development of high performance pc hardware that we have today. Was it worth the purchase??? Yes, if you buy it from the seller offering $0.29. Okay, it's really not THAT bad! But the pinball games I mentioned above that were released several years ago are much better. First of all as some reviewer said, when you buy any pc game, you shouldn't have to activate it online, by email, or by telephone. If you don't activate Dream Pinball, all you get is a demo mode. That's ridiculous and unheard of with any pc game, let alone a bargain basement one. Regarding the game itself, there are 6 "different" tables but it's really hard to distinquish one table from another. They really all look and play the same and even on HARD mode, it's way too easy to get high scores. I had the highest score of the default scores listed on 3 of the tables I played the very first time I played them really without even trying. The ball physics aren't terrible but one thing that stands out is that the number of pop bumbers are minimal on all tables and the little action that you get from them are animated fire like explosions that sends pc graphics back 15 years. You never get the pop bumper sound that a pinball table makes which is really what makes a pinball table a pinball table. Launching a ball is just stupid. Read more ›
