Pinball Action is an video arcade game, a simulator of a pinball machine, released in 1985 by Tehkan (now Tecmo).

Game features

Pinball Action features three separate pinball areas in addition to the starting area. Each of the additional 'faces' has a challenge which, when completed, allows a player access to a special three extra credits. The three faces feature challenges modelled on ten-pin bowling, poker, and slot machines.

The game has a shake feature which mimics the effect possible on a non-video pinball machine. Whilst multiball is not possible in Pinball Action, there are a number of ways to earn extra balls.


Extra balls are awarded at 70,000 and 200,000 points. High scores can be obtained via the game's generous bonus scoring system, with the highest score obtainable being in the millions.
