The original Video Pinball was an upright arcade cabinet. A mirror reflected video images of the pinball, flippers, and targets over a printed background. Pushing down on the control panel simulated a nudge on screen, and up to four players could play at once.

How to Play

The control panel extends outward, decorated with a 40's-esque hand indicating where to press the start button. The flipper controls are on the left and right sides of the control panel and the panel itself has a spring that allows the player to push down on it for a nudge effect. A plunger is located at the front of the panel.
