About The Game

Video Pinball, as its name implies, is an arcade video pinball game!

Trivia

World's first video attraction to simulate a pinball game. Video Pinball was an instant winner. With fluorescent 'disco' 3-D play-field, challenging targets, bumpers, slingshots, roll-overs and drop targets Atari Video Pinball had it all, but without all the mechanical objects associated with classic pinball games. Even a pinball 'nudge' feature is included to give a more realistic feel to the play action. Approximately 1,500 units were produced.

A Video Pinball unit appears in the 1982 movie 'Fast Times at Ridgemont High'.

A Video Pinball machine was shown at the 2003 classic arcade games show 'California Extreme' in San Jose, California.
