|Adventure Pinball: Forgotten Island|
The game uses the Unreal engine which was previously only used for first-person shooter games. It provided a fresh new gameplay experience for its time, especially in the aspect of pinball games. The game is rendered in 3-D, and has both a story mode consisting of 9 levels, where no actual pinball tables exist, and a table mode. Most of the levels must be unlocked by completing other levels. There are hidden areas in the story mode to earn bonus points, it also features special power-ups to help your progression through the game.
The game was unlike any other pinball game at the time, it wasn't just your average game of pinball behind a glass case or a video game simulation, you were able to roam around a small world known as The Forgotton Island. It also featured monsters and insects to eliminate or bypass while playing in story mode. It is known at times for being a very fast-paced game.
In addition to the instruction manual, a booklet is provided with the Windows version of the game that includes a short story in the appearance of the main character's personal journal. It hints of a possible sequel at the end of the story by saying "I have the feeling there's more adventure to come", but this hasn't been confirmed or announced yet.
The levels for story mode and table mode are the same, but the difference is story mode offers quests and objectives to unlock new levels for both story mode and table mode, opposed to table mode which is used to set a high score for each level.
