Yesterday, we showcased three different tables
coming to FarSight Studios’ The Pinball Arcade
. Today, we bring you the Theatre of Magic table. In this video, we get a glimpse of Theatre of Magic’s various bonuses, including the multi-ball.
As you can see, when you achieve the multi-ball bonus, the camera shifts to give you a better view of the playing field. This is a neat little touch, but there are some pinball fans who are hoping there is the option to have a fixed camera regardless of the situation. Some pinball wizards may be more comfortable with a different angle altogether.
With so much effort
going into recreating these classic machines, perhaps a free roam camera would be a wise inclusion as well. That way we can look at the lights, type, and details of each table. Time will tell if more camera control will be included into the final game.
You can expect to see The Pinball Arcade
this month on XBLA.
