Devil's Crush (known as Devil Crash in Japan) is a pinball video game developed by NAXAT Soft for the TurboGrafx-16. The second installment in the Crush Pinball series after Alien Crush, the game has an eerie occult theme with skulls, skeletons, and demons. It was later followed by Jaki Crush and Alien Crush Returns.
Devil's Crush was also later released on the Wii's Virtual Console, with the European release reverting to its original title, however the pentagram symbols were removed and replaced with 8-sided star. There was also a Sega Mega Drive port of the game, retitled Dragon's Fury (Devil Crash MD in Japan) which was developed by Technosoft.
The play field of Devil's Crush consists of a free scrolling pinball table three screens high. There are three pairs of flippers. The left flipper is controlled by pressing any direction on the d-pad and the right flipper is controlled by pressing the I button. Button II allows the player to nudge/bump the table to influence the ball's path. Using the tilt button too much will result in the game "tilting" and the flippers will stop working, causing a lost ball. There are many targets to shoot for and hidden bonus rooms.
