A [[DigitalPinballTable video game version]] for the NintendoEntertainmentSystem was developed by {{Rare}} Ltd. and published by Tradewest. To the detriment of purists, it added video-only obstacles, such as a mad mechanic who attempted to slap the ball down the flippers. After over twenty years, a true recreation of the game without extraneous features is available for ''VideoGame/ThePinballArcade''.

* IDontKnowMortalKombat: On a slow day at the Professional and Amateur Pinball Association's headquarters, the NES game was available to play. Keith Elwin, 5-time world champion, happened to be around and tried playing it, which completely chewed him up and spat him out--he was done in less than 60 seconds.

'''High Speed''' is a pinball game designed by Creator/SteveRitchie, with software by Creator/LarryDeMar and art by Mark Sprenger (playfield) and Creator/PythonAnghelo (backglass); it was released by Creator/WilliamsElectronics in 1986. The game is based on [[HotPursuit a high-speed police chase]] between the player (in his cherry-red Lamborghini) and the long arm of the law. The player must first advance a set of traffic lights from green to yellow to red; after he runs the red light, the police will immediately follow. If the player escapes, he can start three-ball multiball for a chase at breakneck speeds, complete with flashing lights and siren.
