Pinball Dreams is a pinball simulation video game developed by Digital Illusions CE and originally released for the Amiga in 1992. It spawned several sequels, including Pinball Fantasies, Pinball Illusions and Slam Tilt.
The game's four tables each had a theme, as do most real life pinball machines. The version of Pinball Dreams bundled with the Amiga 1200 had a bug which rendered most of Beat Box's advanced features non-functional.
'Ignition', themed around a rocket launch, planets, and space exploration. The Expert Software's Pinball 2000 port of the game renamed this table 'Rocket'.
'Steel Wheel', themed around steam trains and the Old West.
'Beat Box', themed around the music industry, charts, bands and tours.
'Nightmare', themed around a graveyard, ghosts, demons, nightmares and generally evil things. Unlike the other tables in the game, the name of the table in the menu did not reflect the name displayed on the table itself—'Graveyard'. Some ports of the game (notably the GameTek port to the Game Boy) name this table 'Graveyard' in the menu as well.
This version of Pinball Dreams was designed for the Game Boy console, which was an 8-bit handheld video game console manufactured
by Nintendo in the years 1989 - 2003. It was the first ever handheld video game console with exchangeable game cartridges, but it only supported black and
white screen. The Game Boy console has been extremely commercially successful and has sold more than 118 million units (including its successors Game
Boy Pocket and Color). Its unit price on US market was $ 90. More information about the Game Boy console can be found
