Paragon™ Pinball Just release!

Paragon™ Pinball has just been released for: Steam, iOS, Google Play, Mac and Amazon!

Coming Soon: OUYA

https://youtu.be/j70N6r-teXM
Paragon™ (1979): Was designed by Greg Kmiec and drawn by Paul Faris. This beautifully illustrated table was the first Supersize widebody table made by Bally. This table was one of the first to use inline drop targets, in the Valley of Demons, to score points and multiply the Bonus. The table also features four Flippers on the Playfield to control the ball away from the Beast's Lair, the dangerous outlane gap under the Pop Bumper on the left. This table challenges players with every game, and is a great game to hone flipper control and nudging skills. "Enter the exciting world of Paragon!"
