I got this game as part of the Worms collection (which I got for 80% off on sale). Had I of purchased this game by itself at full price I would have been really upset.

This game is from 1998 & sure looks & plays like it is, unlike many other games that have managed to grow old gacefully this game is very limited in the resolution department & looks terible, it really hurts my eyes! (That really says something because to this day I still play & enjoy Atari 2600, NES & Master System games)

If your looking for a good pinball game, this ain't it! The only way that this should end up on your Sream games list is if like myself, you buy the Worms collection as the rest of the worms games are AWESOME!!!

Take care now, bye bye then!

A cash-in pinball game in the era where cyber pinball games were wildly popular. It has all the elements of pinball that you would want but the lack of being able to change controls and overall confusing display ranks in a bit lower on the pinball spectrum. Overall not a terrible experience but not an exceptional one.

Screen flickering makes this game unplayable on Windows 7, there is no fix for this.

Don't waste your money.

Like many early virtual pinball tables, Worms Pinball showed promise. All the classic pinball elements which you'd expect are there. An interesting table layout, a couple of multiballs, various modes with different objectives, nice ramp and orbit shots. Unfortunately, pinball emulation in 1998 was just not that sophisticated and that is ultimately what lets Worms Pinball down. The flippers are slow to respond, the physics are totally inaccurate and the visuals are just not very pretty. It's a shame because the theme is executed perfectly and if it were a real table it would be a blast to play. The callouts and sounds are great, the dot matrix animations are well done and the playfield design is cool. Disappointingly, that doesn't make up for the poor pinball simulation, which is what a game with pinball in the title should really be about.

P.S. Stern, please make this game.

This game only has one table, so I can't really reccomend you run out and buy it on its own, but if you get it as part of a bundle or package Worms Pinball is worth playing. The physics and sound are great, which are two of the most important things for a pinball game. The visuals are also quite pleasant, despite being dated. There's lots of bonuses and goals to shoot for, and the multiball mode is really fun. Really there's not much to say about this one, but it's worth playing if it makes its way into your Steam library.

Not worth it! Not memorable! NOT anything...
A bad idea turned into a bad game...
Just ignore it and let it rest in peace!

I love Pinball and to find out that Worms themed Pinball exists... well of course I'm going to buy it and play it!

This is genius, fun and really competitive that will give you hours of fun if you like a challenge to beat your highscores.

Positives:
-Pinball (Who doesn't love Pinball?)
-Worms Theme with all the unique and classic sounds, sayings, animations and much much more (Who doesn't love Worms?)
-Highscores (Everytime you play you can try and beat your own highscore)
-Acts just like you were playing on an Arcade Pinball Machine at the bowling alley :P!
-Hours of Worm fille fun!

Negatives:
- Little overpriced (I would only buy this on sale for like $3-5)
- No way to see Steam Friends Highscores or Other Players Highscores (They could easily implement this)
- Only one themed machine (They could easily implement different Machines for each worms game)

Overall, in my opinion, the game is fun, has all the classic worms sounds and acts just like you were on a real Arcade Pinball Machine and I love trying to beat my own highscores. However, without a way to see other peoples highscores or your Steam friends it is kind of lame. Also with only having one theme for the machine, it also makes it kind of lame. However, as this is still enjoyable to play a game here and there, to try and beat your own highscores, to enjoy some classic worms animations and sounds and just to relive the wonderful Arcade Pinball Machine experience... I'd recommend you buy this Pinball game if you loved Worms and Pinball!

Overall, I'd rate this 4/5!

Outdated. Poor resolution and physics. Buy any other pinball game, if you want pinball. Preferably one from the past 10 years or so.

Not much here for $7.99. It was kind of fun for about 2 minutes, but then I was done.

This is a dated pinball game with a Worms theme. There isn't anything special about it and just one board, so it's not worth it.

I give up. All pinball games are terrible. Except for Pinball Arcade and that one game I played when I was a kid. I am not sure of the name. I got it for Christmas from my dad the same year he bought me Marilyn Manson's album Antichrist Superstar. I really wish I knew what game that was, cause it was way better that this. In short: go buy Pinball Arcade tables.
