    ya, i've gotten 50 mil when i used to play with my family a few years ago. my mum and i could consitently score over 20 mil. though, after a while, it was less about points and more about getting promotions.

    I hate that game, waste of time and money. Apple's come-with-the-OS games are pretty awesome though. I like Nanosaur, Bugdom, and Chess.

    dude, its a totally cool game. it totally helped refine my pinball skills. you realize to play pinball it costs like a quarter and its hours of entertainment!i can win free games over and over and play for hours! and arcades are so fun and flashy. but they're expensive. so i watch all the cool games, and then settle into some cheap pinball. ooooh ya!

    I love real pinball!! Pinball on a computer isn't at all the same...you need to feel the flippers flipping, and get to shake the machine (without tilting). How can you even shoot the ball on a computer? You need to feel the tension on that spring to really know where you're going to put that ball. :tongue2: I really like the ones where you can get bonuses that put 2 or 3 balls in play at once, and as long as they're all in play, you get double or triple your score (it's pretty challenging keeping track of that many balls, especially if you also have two sets of flippers...woo!)

    Okay, now I miss pinball. I wonder if there are any arcades around here with some old pinball machines.

    man, multiball is the BEST! its definetly the best way to rack up points. whenever i have a choice between multiball and like, a free ball, or a million points, or bonuses or whatever, i always choose multiball! you get LOADS of points, and its probably the most fun thing, (especially for someone with ADD) cause you've got like a zillion things to pay attention to and everything is flashing and spinning! woo!!!

    unfortunately, i've checked out the arcades around here and none of them have pinball. they all have the new 3d virtual games, which are fun, but muy expensivo! so.... no pinball for me... sadface...

    I love that game! Well, not to play, but my cousins loved playing it on my laptop while we were camping last summer vacation.

    :rofl: Okay, taking a laptop on a camping trip is just Soooooo wrong. Did you also have a generator to run the TV, refrigerator and electric stove? :rofl:
