''Crystal Caliburn'' is a digital {{Pinball}} game produced by [[Creator/LittleWing [=LittleWing Co.=] ]] It was first released in 1993 for Microsoft Windows and Apple Macintosh computers, but today versions for iOS and Android are also available. It is generally regarded as the hardest pinball game in [=LittleWing's=] library.

The game itself is a pinball interpretation of the Quest for the Holy Grail, with the player as KingArthur. He must first assemble the Knights of the Round Table, then send a single Knight (ball) on a quest to Glass Island and retrieve the Grail. Along the way, the player can acquire artifacts like a Magic Shield, Magic Spear, and Excalibur, and face challenges such as Surprise Attacks, encounters with the Devil Dragon, and the Last Battle.

A sequel, ''Crystal Caliburn II'', was released in 2012 for Windows and Macintosh computers, iOS, and Android phones.

!!This pinball demonstrates the following tropes:

* TheDragonslayer
* {{Excalibur}}: The game is named after the sword ("Caliburn"), and it is one of the knightly weapons to be retrieved.
* KingArthur: The player ''is'' Arthur.
* LuckilyMyShieldWillProtectMe
* NintendoHard
* OurDragonsAreDifferent
* PublicDomainArtifact: Excalibur ("Caliburn") and the Holy Grail.
* ThisIsSomethingHesGotToDoHimself: The quest for the Holy Grail must be performed by one Knight, by himself.
* TimedMission: To retrieve the Holy Grail, the player must send one Knight to Glass Island, get the Grail, then return it to Camelot Castle before time runs out.
