System 3 Software, the UK-based publisher of Williams Pinball Classics in Europe, has not only created a brand-new website featuring all of their products but also seen fit to put forward a new release date of 11th September 2009 for it.
Whilst we have no idea what has caused the delay from spring to fall, this is the first confirmed date seen from the publisher for a title European pinball fans like myself have been waiting nearly a year for!
The Totally Authentic Pinball Experience - capturing all the sights, sounds and thrills of real Williams Pinball Machines.
Williams Pinball Classics recreates ten of the most memorable tables from the golden age of pinball in stunning, photorealistic 3D. Working closely with Williams to ensure authenticity of each of the games, the collection includes the most-popular and innovative pinball tables, including Gorgar™, the first-ever talking pinball machine, Black Knight®, which introduced “Magna-Save™” and Bonus Ball, and Space Shuttle™, which took the pinball industry by storm in 1984 and Funhouse™ – a defining moment in pinball history. Every table is meticulously recreated including visuals, sound effects and game play that made these games legendary successes.
You begin Williams Pinball Classics with access to four pinball tables, and the remaining six tables are unlocked as the game progresses. Players can spend as little as two minutes on a quick pinball challenge, or delve deeper into the game, gaining rewards in a token-based system as they unlock each of the pinball tables. Single-player Arcade and Challenge modes provide hours of solo entertainment, and a Multiplayer mode lets players face each other head-on.
