Safe Cracker™ Just Released!

We are very proud to announce that Safe Cracker™ has just been released!

Safe Cracker™ (1996): designed by Pat Lawlor, this unique table is noticeably shorter and more narrow than a standard pinball machine. Featuring timer based gameplay as opposed to having a certain number of balls, players take on the role of a bank robber looking to collect a stash. The goal during the pinball part of the game is to break into the bank. Once inside, the gameplay switches to an interactive board game on the back glass that must be played in order to break into the vault. This game also features Magic Tokens, which are dispensed as rewards from a special slot on the back glass. These tokens can be collected or used to start a separate game mode on the table called, Assault on the Vault. 1,148 units of this table were produced.

If you’ve ever enjoyed playing pinball back in the day, then "The Pinball Arcade" is a no brainer must have. Can’t afford the real tables, then this is the next best thing. New great tables released frequently. 5 out of 5 rating! Farsight gets it done!

Playing on PC with wired XBox 360 controller. With a severe lack of actual pins here in Corpus Christi Tx, Pinball Arcade is my go-to when I need a fix. The selection of tables gets 7 out of 10. Personally, I would like to see more EM tables in the mix. That said, the availiable selection is varied and all have something to offer. I have experienced minimal issues with the software. It's great game and I highly recommed Pinball Arcade to anyone who appreciates pinball.

I previously had issues with Black Knight and they seem to be working on the ball lock issue.

They upgraded the game with an optional DX11 version, but you can play it with DX9. If you have a DX11 video card, try the enhanced version.

You can customise the DX11 lighting effects.

You can buy seasons or individual tables. They occasionally have sales.

The pinball tables are fun. I have almost 20 hours logged into it.

There's one free table. There's a table of the month you can play as well. There are adds between games as well.

Over all 8.5/10. The down side is the Pro packs...

I would like to see more added camera features and "Adult Mode" Added to the none pro pack. I dont like that you have to spend a little more cash just to be able to access the tables features like Adult mode, sounds and lights.

I own season 1 and 2 . Each season cost me 16$ when it was on sale 50% off during the winter sales and I have to say I really enjoy playing the tables that I used to see and play as a kid.

One of the favorite tables has to be Terminator 2 which was great to finally play again. Then I showed my family the tables during the holidays and they all loved it.

The physics of the flipper and ball are different from 3D FX but it feels more heavy and realistic.

The devs seem like they are dedicated to bringing more tables and improving on the old tables so weekly or monthly updates are always instore.
Cant wait to play Adams family table.

Do you like pinball? Do you want to play the old tables you used to in the bar/arcade/bowling alley and they just aren't around anymore? Then this is for you. The tables look and feel like the original tables, they sound like the original tables, and they are definitely just as fun as they used to be.

Anyone into pinball - GET THIS IMMEDIATELY.

10/10
