Pinball Hall of Fame: The Williams Collection Preview
« on: September 19, 2011, 10:49:47 AM »

A bevy of classic tables make their way to the 3DS.

The Pinball Hall of Fame series has seen a fairly consistent string of releases across multiple platforms in the past handful of years, so it’s of little surprise that a 3DS version of the collection is slated for release. While Pinball Hall of Fame: The Williams Collection for 3DS won’t comprise a drastic departure from previous iterations, there are several system-specific changes that could potentially set it apart from the console releases. 

A multitude of recreated Williams-manufactured tables return in the 3DS version from the lot present in previous releases, including classics like “Black Knight”, “Sorcerer”, and “Funhouse.” Each table bustles with unique tricks, strategies, and objectives to supplement standard high-score attempts.

Notable changes coming in the 3DS version of The Williams Collection are mainly cosmetic. A tighter camera angle is present to accommodate the proportions of the 3DS’s screens, as part of five views players can cycle through while on a table. 

In addition, a feature taking advantage of the system’s gyroscope allows for the game to be played while the 3DS is inverted—a perspective that pushes the score display to the top screen while the table occupies the bottom screen, ostensibly to further foster a more authentic pinball experience.

Is there a list of tables available yet? Some versions have had different tables included, and if Tales of the Arabian Nights and/or Medieval Madness are included on the 3DS release that would be a notable selling point for me.

I loved the Wii version (an actual good use of "waggle") and should be getting the 3DS tomorrow. I've missed not having Pinball Pulse on my 3DS, however.

It's too bad Firepower was left out. Despite its simplicity, I really loved it. I even managed to roll over the score on that one. Maybe they'll put the tables that weren't in here on the eShop.

I'm liking the 3DS version so far. Seven tables for $30 isn't a bad deal. Haven't really tried the inverted mode yet.
