About The Game

Hit targets and rack up points in this classic pinball game!

Featuring a bonus mode starring Nintendo's legendary character, Mario, you control our hero as he holds a platform and uses it to keep the ball in the air.

This game is easy to learn and includes bonus balls for high scorers and a two-player mode.
