A Space Pinball fund could be raised in little time!
I hope this can get started soon...

Well, consider this to be my contribution to the site, Jojobean sold it to me, or better said, ripped me off on it with Bound High at the time.

Enjoy it!

Wow, now this got me excited! What a rad contribution to the VB community!

Though whenever I download the file, it comes down with the name "Space Pinball Prototype (J) [!].vb" but with a size of 0 bytes.

Perhaps a re-upload is needed?

But the download is not working. You should re-upload as ZIP, please.

Cool stuff! I checked my archives and I have no dump of Space Pinball (for some reason I thought I did).

Either way, thanks for the info TheForce81! The file will be available whenever it is available, eh?
For the time being this is a great time for everyone to relive Galactic Pinball.

Galactic/Space Pinball was a much needed first in the "pinball" genre for home consoles. I'm surprised at how many pinball titles strike a nostalgic nerve considering the lack of consumer enthusiasm. Whether you remember seals bouncing beach balls on NES Pinball or hatching Alligator eggs in Hal Laboratory's Revenge of the Gator for Game Boy, this odd and niche gaming category delivered a suitable fix for the desire to knock around an 80Gram ball-bearing for entertainment.

The Stereo 3D effects of Galactic pinball introduced the true feeling of viewing a pinball playing field on a home console IMO. Let's be honest, pinball is rather simple and the fun involved was a mix of basic luck and timing/reaction skills. Pinball video games need accurate physics, but physics alone cannot recreate the vibe of standing over an old smoke-stained silver ball machine. However with the aid of 3D, for the first time ever on our Virtual Boy we could enjoy pinball at home without an actual Pinball machine and get that feeling that we *just may be* playing on one from a visual standpoint. While Galactic Pinball for VB may not be the epitome of gaming pinball greatness, it sure was a daring and elegant first step for consumers that didn't have the financial luxury of having their own "man cave" in the early-mid 90s.


As always, rock on PVB! Take care and have a safe New Years.
Happy Holidays, everyone!

Well that was unexpected... A big thank you, seriously.

Can we start the fund up for Faceball 2000 now instead?

Top job. I was a little worried someone might try that kind of 'deal' again, I had the ROM gifted to me a while back, but was asked to keep it quiet, pleased to now see it out there.

Well, unfortunately, the Space Pinball ROM isn't "out there" yet because I don't think anyone can get the download to work properly. I sure can't. But now, everyone knows that you have a working ROM that could be put out there for everyone.

Yeah, you probably should have kept that under your hat for a bit longer Mr Hedge. If he's decided to go away on holiday for a bit you could get a lot of people pestering you now.

Well whenever it does turn up, I look forward to playing it.
