Creep Night lets you choose and switch between three different tables with plenty of things to aim and shoot at, e.g., goblins, monsters, skeletons, etc. It took me weeks to discover all the little built in challenges and tasks. Again animation and graphics are quite impressive, and in my opinion it's the best game in the package.
Ultra Pinball, like Creep Night, lets you play either of the three tables, or you can switch between them during the game. All three tables habe good graphics in a futuristic setting, though visually not as impressive as the other two games mentioned earlier. Nevertheless, either table gives you plenty to do with five different tasks to accomplish, and you'll be busy for some time.
Overall: I haven't been able to figure out why the package is advertised to contain 25 tables, I've only been able to find 21 - but maybe I missed something? Nevertheless, the game package gives you plenty of hours of pinball fun and is well worth purchasing.
The graphics may seem a bit dated, but you will find that it doesn't take away from the amount of fun you'll have playing these games. The tables from the first two games are huge, and are composed of a main 'table' and one or more 'sub-tables'. All of the tables from the first two games have many games within the table that provide more challenges and can give big rewards. The third pinball game, The Lost Continent, is a huge adventure that will take you over 15 interlinked tables as you help a group of travellers escape a primeval island that is infested with dinosaurs.
Altogether, you get 24 great tables and The Incredible Machine, a game where you build crazy machines to solve puzzles, for one great price. Other pinball games only give you a single table, or abunch of tables with outdated graphics and cheesy music. You just can't go wrong if you pick up this collection!
It cant possibly work on the PC. You lose 90% of the experience and are left with a diversion more than a game.
Sierra realised this, and instead of making a PC replica of a real pinball game they added a load of features, subplots and novelties that make you forget that you have lost all the fun of real pinball.
Each game includes several linked table and features that build up over time. As a result you need to apply your brain and be strategic in order to get through to other tables and reach the ultimate goal.
The basics of the game - the ball movement, the flippers and the targets - work very well and it does have a good 'feel'.
Each table fits on one screen, avoiding the annoying scrolling of other computer pinball games.
If you just want to play a pinball replica, this is probably a tad too complicated, but for me 3-D ultra pinball is excellent!
With all three actual pinball games, there is a final goal to achieve. "The Lost Continent" is something that my kids enjoy. I feel that the age range this was aiming for must have been 7-13 years old. The "Creep Night" seems to be geared toward 10-20 years old. The "3D Ultra Pinball" is seemingly geared toward 12-adult. I am basing these estimates on appearance, difficulty, and appeal.
