Game Manual

Get ready for 32 different game options for 6 different games with 11 paddle sizes. We guarantee you will break out in a cold sweat before you break in to an upper level of fun in this exciting game cartridge.

PIN BALL CHALLENGE (Basic Game)

The paddle appears on the screen and the game starts. You get a total of 7 balls served whether you are playing alone or with someone. The object of this game is to bounce the ball off your paddle and chip away at the 3 colors of blocks. You receive points for each block you hit. Each of the 3 color levels is two blocks thick.

The lowest or green level is worth 1 point for each block hit; the middle or blue level is worth 4 points; and, the top or red level is worth 7 points for each hit. You will recieve 384 points for eating away all the blocks in the 3 levels. If you accomplish this, for example, in 5 balls; another block wall immediately appears and you will keep going for the 2 remaining balls. The object of Pin Ball Challenge is to get the highest score for 7 balls.

User Summary

The term Pinball in the title is misleading -- this game is actually more similar to Breakout and not at all like Pinball (hence the note at the start of the instructions about the game causing you to "break out" in a cold sweat!)

There are six different games, named in the manual as follows: Pinball Wiz, Cooperation Partners, Crossover Partners, Pro Challenge, Block Shot, and Double Block.

The 32 different game modes are created through various combinations of the following options: Paddle Shrink, Changing Paddle, Ball Speedup, Invisible Blocks, and Pro Speed.
