Double your fun with this dual pinball cart. Packed together for the first time are Elvira and the Party Monsters along with Police Force. Rock with Elvira and shoot for the interactive objects and goals, while listening to her voice. Go all out on Police force nabbing the bank robbers and cleaning up the neighborhood. Both games feature high scoring targets and lots of pinball fun. Check your flippers and jam!

Having two games on one card is an interesting ploy that works - and doesn't work - for me. The two titles on this game are both fun in a leisurely sort of way, but the only real difference between the two is the name and layout of the field. You basically get the same game, albeit an entertaining one, in two different suits.

6.0

The concept of packaging two games together is a great idea Both games have many targets and multi-ball play but the screen is too cramped and congested looking. Sound is moderate with some good digitized voices. The games are fun to play yet lack the visual appeal to make it out of the ordinary.

6.0

I found this pinball translation to fall short in many areas. I like having two different machines to choose from. The game play is good, but the playing field is too busy. The music is the typical annoying Lynx bleeps, but the digitized sounds and voices make up for it in the end. Good try but it only ends up above average.

8.0

Awesome! This game is all fun from the first plunge! Two hot pinball games for the price of one! What a deal! The pinball physics and voices are masterfully programmed, and I would love to see several sequels featuring other classics like Pin-bot, High Speed, Black Knight, and Earth Shaker. How about it, guys?!?

Game Reviews

Hey! Pinball's just become portable, and two of the hottest tables to date are ready to light up your Lynx screen: Elvira and the Party Monsters and Police Force. You don't have to be a pinball wizard to have fun with these Atari pins and you don't need quarters either!

Ring My Bell

Both games feature superior graphics. They resemble their predecessors down to every last bumper and bell. Your view of the vertically-scrolling action is from an overhead perspective. On the downside, the graphics are so colorful and the ball moves so quickly that you'll sometimes have problems following it with your eyes. Also, the flippers are hard to see, which can cause you to lose a ball or two.

The game play is realistic in both titles. You can even "Tilt." However, there are a few video options in these handheld versions that you won't find in the real thing, such as difficulty settings. In an Easy Game, you get three extra balls and hints as to where to hit a ball. In the Hard Game, it's three balls and you're out.

There Has to Be a Itoist

Pinball rolls around enough twists, ramps, and curves to give even supple wrists a hard bumper chase. Authentic pinball sounds help to light up the fun. The music is fast and frantic, just like the ball's movements. Elvira, Nocturnal Mistress of the Dark, greets you with her digitized sultry real voice and oh-so Elvira comments such as, "How about another ball?" The Police Force men in blue have digitized radio dispatches that'll make you feel like you're in the car.

The flip side? Well, there really isn't one. If you're a pinball fanatic, then by all means pick up this cart. It's pocket-size pinball at its best. Pinball Jam jams.

ProTips:

  • In Police Force, if you capture all the men and lock'em up, you get another ball.
  • In both games, 2,000,000 points earns you an extra ball.
  • In Police Force, aim for the Handcuff Bonus that's located on the middle left-hand side of the table. Hit It and you'll rack up thousands of points.
  • In Elvira, aim for the Party Punch. It's easy to cycle your ball through it several times to snag mega points.
