Pinball Dreaming: Pinball Fantasies is the official iPhone version of the classic Amiga pinball arcade simulator originally released in 1992 and is the successor to the wildly popular Pinball Dreams!
The popular opinion is that Pinball Fantasies is the best pinball game for the iPhone - some even say it's the best simulated pinball ever created.
It features the 4 original tables with remastered graphics, interactive soundtracks and yet again comes with 100% of the original addictive game play. The game can be played in both portrait and landscape orientation.
The game runs in perfect 60FPS on all devices - the way nature intended! To remove occasional hiccups, turn WLAN and mail fetch off.
Extra goodies are smashing new menu graphics and a logo remaster from the original graphics author, Markus Nyström.
On top of that you will be catered to a brand new Pinball Dreaming -homepage and a forum at www.cowboyrodeo.net/pinballdreaming/ - complete with a special VIP section for buyers of the game with free MP3 remixes from the original musician, Olof Gustafsson!
Full screen support on all devices.
Ball collisions on iOS 9 fixed.

An enjoyable classic
As a fan of this game on the original MS-DOS, I was delighted to see it ported to iOS. Once you get used to the controls, the gameplay becomes more fun. One irritating feature, and I can't remember if it was the same in MS-DOS or not, is with the Stones 'n Bones table. Very often if your ball ends up being spat out of the vault only to bounce from the top of the right bumper to left and end up going immediately down the left hand drain without any interaction from the player. This seems to happy way too frequently to be on purpose. Once this has happened 2-3 times in a row you can get quite fed up as you lose a ball and all that work to get a high score is wasted. This is about the only improvement that needs to be made!
Classic Pinball Action
Really glad the this & Dreams were updated in 2016. The update brought in full screen support (remember when the iPhone 5 came out & had its taller screen than the 4?). Well, I'd say inadvertently, the App was also made 64-bit meaning it should work into iOS 11 too.
Wish the same could be said for the HD versions. Lovingly crafted, ball physics still pixel accurate to the Amiga originals. But sadly, not even the developer website is around anymore.
Grab these beauties while you still can. Just not the HD versions as it seems they're doomed to be lost to time. It's a shame that games can be lost like this now. Not very easy to preserve them for fans to look back anymore.
Still the classic you remember with all the same bugs attached. Every table is faithfully restored in great detail including the old bugs that came with them. Stones and bones 1/3 chance for all ball out when you go into the vault. Party land 1/3 chance for ball out after if comes out the Arcade. Annoying when there is nothing you can do to stop it. All in all faithful to the original. Too good!
