Pinball Fantasies is the sequel to Pinball Dreams. Like its predecessor, it was originally an Amiga game before being ported to other platforms. While considered a classic pinball simulation, the graphics are a bit cartoony and the physics feel a bit light. Two nearly identical pre-release "5 Minute Demo" versions were released, on the web and in UK magazine PC Action, that promised that there would be four tables in the full version. A "10 Minute Demo" was released after the game became commercially available, adding a higher resolution 640×350 VGA mode. An odd feature of the 10 Minute Demo is that the ball can be moved around with the numeric keypad, making it possible to play perfectly. There are 4 tables in this game, with only the first table playable in the shareware version.
Tables: Party Land, Speed Devils, Billion Dollar Gameshow, Stones 'N Bones
