- Theme: Action
Super Pinball: Behind the Mask is the first pinball game for the SNES. It features three different playing fields, all of which are loaded with traps and hidden secrets ripe for the picking. You can really rack up the big points, if you know where to shoot.
One to four players can play. With such weird machines as the Jolly Joker and Wizard, everyone will be glued to the screen. Pinball wizards take note: Super Pinball: Behind the Mask is almost here. This is a pinball game that'll make you go tilt!

Super Pinball-Behind The Mask brings old fashion pinball Action to your Super Nintendo. Play through three different playfields while trying to defeat the evil Wizard. There are two different game modes to choose from. Competition Mode, where one to four players compete against each other in alternate play, or Conquest Mode, where one player challenges all three play-fields. The objective in the Conquest Mode is for the player to get a set number of points on each level. Once you reach that set number, the forbidden door will open. You will then have 30 seconds to shoot your ball into the mystery pit. If you achieve this goal, you can advance to the next stage.
The action in Super Pinball is realistic -- the board is angled and the flippers are far apart. Unfortunately, this is why people stopped playing pinball and started playing pinball video games.
ProTip: Keep flippers nested (in the up position) when the ball is in the lower part of the screen.
The graphics in Super Pinball are clean but uninspired. The ball moves quickly around the play area, but otherwise the screen is static. The bumpers, flippers, and bonus markers are too small, and the angle of the board will give you a permanent squint.
Although you get lots of bells and flipper thumps, the music in this game sounds like it came from a dimly lit bar.
Video pinball games are getting faster and more sophisticated, but this game takes you back to the old pinball days. It's straightforward and not very imaginative.
