""Crush Pinball is a series of pinball video games developed by Naxat Soft and later Hudson Soft. A common theme amongst all installments in the series that sets them apart from other pinball games is the presence of sci-fi, fantasy or occult themes.
The series started in 1988 when Alien Crush was released for the Turbografx-16, which featured a sci-fi atmosphere reminiscent of the film Alien. It was then followed 2 years later by Devil's Crush, also for the Turbografx-16 which featured an occult theme with skulls, skeletons, and demons. A third game was later developed for the Super Famicom called Jaki Crush that contained a Japanese demon/ogre mythology theme, although the game was never released outside Japan. The series was revived in 2008 when Hudson Soft published a sequel/remake to Alien Crush called Alien Crush Returns for WiiWare.
While Jaki Crush became largely obscure, Alien Crush and Devil's Crush were well received and have both been re-released on the Virtual Console.""
