Pinball Dreams is a cool pinball game that tests your reflexes and has a bunch of little missions. The graphics are flashy, but not so much that they are distracting. You can play four different machines: Ignition, Steel Wheel, Beat Box, and Nightmare. Each one looks completely different and has different missions and bonuses.

At the main screen, use F1-F4 to select what machine you want to play. Then use the F buttons again to choose how many players you want (so F1=1 player). In the game, use the shift or the alt buttons on each side to control the flippers. Use the down arrow key to launch the ball, and space to tilt.

Note: To run this game, you need to copy the INSTALL.SYS file to your C: drive. It would not work for me until I did this.
