Like ''VideoGame/PinballConstructionSet'' before it, ''Macadam Bumper'' is noted for allowing players to create their own DigitalPinballTables. As expected, designers could tweak various aspects of the physics engine, then use a drag-and-drop interface to place obstacles and paint playfield graphics. Games supported up to four players, and the game came with one predefined table. Unlike ''Pinball Construction Set'', however, there was no way to share your creations with other players, which severely limited its long-term appeal.
