About This Game

Big Score is based around a classic story of police vs. criminals in a fight for a big score. The fantastic action will leave you breathless and will pump-up your adrenaline while you are rescuing your ball, trying to hit that last glowing target.

Big Score can be played by four players, where you will be able to steal points and achievements from your playing partners.

You will have to: risk a lot, airball a lot, save balls from jail, rush them across the bridge, break the safe code, play video modes, be precise and be quick if you plan to reach the final score.

12 modes and 8 mini-modes will guide you through the intense story where you will prepare, practice, steal, fight, chase, break-in, arrest, run and finally try to make your one chance for a Big Score.

  • Big Score extra features - cover game elements not present in regular modes and mini-modes.
  • Multiball - a 3 ball play where your goal is to score Jackpot and Super Jackpot. These tasks are not easy as you need to hit the safe with an airball over the small ramp.
  • Two Ball - a 2 ball play where your goal is to gather jackpots and superjackpots.
  • BigScore letters - you are collecting letters which lead to special Big Score bonus and special bonus play mode.
  • Wheel - by rotating the wheel in the requested direction you are progressing to special awards.
  • Bank awards - when you insert the ball into the bank you receive random bank awards.
  • Skill shots -when launching the ball you can make multiple skill shots.
  • Combos - Hitting special targets a few times in a row brings extra combo points.
  • Secret features - Yes, there are many secret features!

This game is broken and has been for years. If you have a controller plugged in to your USB port the game will likely crash on launch. If you play without a controller plugged in the game will work for a while THEN crash. A patch was released years ago which purported to fix these problems but didn't. Not that it matters, since the Steam version isn't patched anyway. The game is a ripoff at any price, save your money for something better like tables for Pinball FX2 or Pinball Arcade.

This is a definitive "DO NOT BUY". You can harangue this game into working, but even on modern hardware produced years after this game was released, it will still run at a terrible frame-rate. That is unfortunate, because the table layout and game itself are actually interesting.

If you want to play pinball, there are thankfully more options on Steam now. Pinball FX2, Pinball Arcade, and Worms Pinball are all more worthy of your time.

So bought this game years ago for a buck or something like that. I gotta say it's pretty sweet. I don't have any of the bugs other users reported, game is fluent and i can play for hours without a crash what so ever.
It is only one table yeah, but you get to choose between four characters if you will and therefor you get some different objectives during the game.
For the price i bought it for it is defenitely a good game and like every good Pinball game a real timekiller.

The game works fine in 64 bit windows 7, with an xbox 360 controller, just apply the patch from the web to the game in your steamapps directory where the game is downloaded off steam. There is a softpedia link to the 1.2 patch, softpedia is a reputable website. Really easy, takes less then 10 minutes to fix. I actually think this game is better then Pinball FX 2.

Picked this on up a while ago on the cheap.
Haven’t had any trouble running it (Win7 64bit) but is pretty underwhelming compared to some other pinball games.
You might say they're going for an old school look and feel, but it doesn’t quite get there and just feels cheap.

SlamIt Pinball offers just one single table, which isn't necessarily a bad thing, and at this point I would have liked to tell you something about how it plays.

But the game gave me a challenge I wasn't up to: Some moments into a match the game crashed... every time. Rarely I've experienced such a bug-ridden, broken piece of software. The fact that its release dates back to 2007 and its still in an unplayable state today is a clear hint that the devs abandoned their game. There are even options in the main menu, for example the controller settings, that make the game crash when you click on them.

Yes, apparently the game was supposed to have the option to be played with a Xbox 360 controller. But the main feature SlamIt Pinball owes its name to involves the keyboard. Slamming your keyboard in different regions nudges the table in a corresponding direction. This innovative mechanism posed one problem: In Windows some keys and key combinations are assigned to specific functions and by slamming wildly onto your keyboard you are bound to hit one of them. And this is the solution the devs came up with: Starting the game adds an entry to your Windows registry that disables all the functions that could get in the way of playing the game. Closing the game removes that entry. This would actually work if the game wouldn't crash regularly but if the game isn't properly closed through the main menu the registry entry stays. I didn't know about that and after I finally gave up on SlamIt Pinball and uninstalled it I noticed that none of the keys were working, Windows key for the start menu, Ctrl+Alt+Del for the task manager, etc... nothing. Took me quite some time to figure out the cause.

Stay away from this utterly broken game and satisfy your pinball needs with Pinball Arcade (if you prefer authentic recreations of real-life tables) or Pinball FX2 (for a diverse selection of fantasy tables) instead.
