While it's a Fun Pinball game to enjoy and play, it contains 3 SFW Adult Tables: Car Wash, Moulin Rouge & Beach.

Quite a simple yet enjoyable Pinball game. Not the best but for the price it's worth giving it a go if your into pinball games.

Middle-of-the-road budget pinball game, part of a series which also includes football- and fantasy-themed sets. The problem is not so much that it offers three tables - that's already more than the likes of Worms Pinball offer - but that the tables on offer are really not very good. Hitting ramps - the most basic thrill of a game of pinball - is so rare as to be a happening, and most of the rest of the time, the ball just flounces around not hitting a whole lot of stuff. The physics don't help matters, as the ball and flippers feel heavy and wooden, rather than smooth, as should be the case in a computerised pinball simulation.

The rest of the game is equally as unremarkable - the soundtrack is limited to a single, Z-tier Playboy Channel soundalike, while table graphics revolve around the sort of imagery no one over the age of 15 will really be enticed by. What a mature gamer is left with is an extremely pedestrian, if competent, pinball simulation - good to kill 10 minutes, but instantly discardable the minute something better is available. Much like Playboy magazine itself, actually...

Not a hearty disrecommendation, but a thumbs-down nonetheless. If you're after a solid, budget pinball title, seek out Dream Pinball 3D instead.

Best table: Car Wash
Worst table: Moulin Rouge (good luck getting more than 2.5 million or so on that one, even if you're a veteran PC pinball player!)

Well I think this game is ok and acceptable, maybe because i havent really played many pinball games before. the game seems a bit stretched on my monitor and i hope it can be fixed. I will recommend it if it's on special.

This is a pretty cool Pinball game with 3 themes. Controls are easy and gameplay is fun, graphically the game is very nice with the pinball looking quite fluid and realistic. If you're a fan of pinball games give it a go.

This is an OK pinball game. I recommend it only for those who are not pinball snobs though and only on sale. This Pinball Thrills pack also has some .. entertaining voice effects, as in "You are sexy". Well thankyouverymuch. :$

Non-proportional stretching of the item models on my widescreen appear to make things look slightly squished vertically, ball physics are definitely off, the music is very repetitive after a bit, and the ball is fairly dark in this one for some reason. The 3 tables included seem to include minimal modes and mini-games so, no, it's not comparable to Real Arcade or Pinball FX 2, so just be aware of that up front.

That said, the controls work well for keyboard and 360 gamepad, and it even has one feature that the big boys don't: you can enter your highscore name with the keyboard. Maybe they could learn something from this after all. :)

I've loved pinball, both the real mechanical ones and computer simulations for as long as I can remember. This together with the other two games in the Thrills set (not to be confused with the excellent 3-D Ultra Pinball Thrillride by Sierra Entertainment) are the worst pinball games I've ever played. The Steam description says:

'They are the ultimate joy for fans of action packed arcade rounds. Thanks to state-of-the-art technology you’ll experience a premium physics simulation. Amazingly detailed, right down to realistic reflections, this game delivers the most intense pinball experience.'

What a load of twaddle, though to be fair, the physics simulation is about right (apart from the ball feeling sluggish at times). There's little animation, most of the targets, of which there are only a few on each table are mainly boring and static. You'd be much better investing in Pinball Arcade or Pinball FX. Both of those games have a free table. Just watch the video on the Steam shop page for Hot Pinball Thrills and compare it to the ones I mention above.

Basically all thee tables are similar, with little of interest in any one of them. Apart from what I've already mentioned above, you can't control the initial ball strength, there appears to be no additional features or hidden puzzles, the ramps, rails and switches are similar throughout not only this set, but the whole series of 12 tables (from 3 games). There are no or little in the way of lighting effects around the targets, The graphics are not what you'd expect from a game created in 2015. This series of tables is a turn off for me and I very much doubt I'll ever play it again. I cannot recommend this game, even to pinball aficionado's. If you are determined to buy the game I'd seriously wait till its on sale before you waste your money. I'm sure it will be on sale soon, once the negative reviews stack up, and sales dry up.

I don't like knocking games because I think the work that goes into them is intense, with many working hours going into the creation of even the simplest of games; unfortunately for me this game (and the others in the series), were a real disappointment.


I will be writing separate reviews for the other two sets in the series, but they will not be very different from this one as they use the same basic targets, the same ramps, the same bumpers etc. The main difference is the art work and slight changes to the look of the tables.

The WORST ever.

As an owner of EVERY FX2 and The Pinball Arcade table, this is just SO bad.

Bad design, dreadful layout, horrible physics. Three tables, less than 35 MB.

Just DON'T!

(Obviously I HAVE played 5 minutes, or this review wouldn't be accepted.....OK?)
