Simply one of the best DOS games ever, Epic Pinball has realistic graphics, sound, physics and gameplay. A shareware legend. Tables were organized into 3 packs of 4 tables each that could be ordered separately, and one table was exclusive to the registered CD-ROM. All of the tables feature a DMD (dot matrix display) and represent original solid state pinball tables. As far as I can tell, all of the tables feature lane changes (the ability to shift the lit lights above lanes), ramps and multiball. Since pinball tables tend to be taller than they are wide, and to avoid having to shrink the table to fit a computer monitor, the tables are take up the full width of the monitor and scroll up and down to show the whole table. Normally the "camera" follows the pinball, but the camera stays on the drain during multiball. Android, the free table in the shareware version, is renamed "Super Android" in v2.0 in the rules and on the table itself, but still lists as "Android" on the table selection screen. There are 13 tables in this game, with only the first table playable in the shareware version.
Pack 1: Android, Pot of Gold, Excalibur, Crash and Burn
Pack 2: Magic, Jungle Pinball, Deep Sea, Enigma
Pack 3: Cyborgirl, Pangaea, Space Journey, Toy Factory
CD-ROM exclusive: African Safari
