Description from the packaging.

Pinball Wizard transforms your computer into a pinball arcade!

Think you're pretty slick with that silver ball, eh? Always get the replays? Not enough digits on the bonus counter for you? Well, before you dub yourself "Prince of Pinball," we at Accolade would like you to tangle with some pinball games that don't eat change... they eat players.

Accolade's Pinball Wizard is the ultimate pinball arcade- an electric palace filled with the blazing sights and sounds of authentic pinball games... games so realistic you'll find yourself dropping quarters in your disk drive.

Pinball Wizard takes you to a new dimension in pinball. Because if you're good enough to master the killer tables in this arcade, you can go up against an even tougher opponent- your own imagination! With Pinball Wizard's built-in construction set, you can conjure up the pinball machines of your wildest dreams.

So save your quarters for a candy bar, hotshot. Once you play "The Wizard," you may never go back to the arcade again.

  • At your fingertips is an easy to use "parts box" filled with all the pieces you need to create the most outrageous pinball games. Custom build your own pinball obstacles or select from targets, flippers, bumpers, spinners and discs.
  • You don't have to be an artist to make your pinball tables the pride of the parlor. Pinball Wizard's unique paint menu gives you the ability to customize each of your tables with your own designs and decorations. Create an illustration, then paint it with the full spectrum of colors found on your palette. Make a mistake? No problem. The "Oops" icon will erase the last thing rendered.
  • Pinball Wizard has the look and feel of real arcade pinball. Gently pull back the spring and fire the ball. Will it drop into a bonus slot? You assign the bonus values to each one of your targets and obstacles. It made it! Keep that ball going! Bang it and the screen shakes... but be careful. Pinball Wizard knows when you're trying to tilt. Want to add an additional twist? Activate the exclusive "Stroboscope" feature to make your ball intermittently vanish!
