The premise of the game is that, after a hundred years of dormancy, a vortex to the Underworld has opened, releasing a horde of gargoyles, zombies, ghosts, and other supernatural creatures. As they wreak havoc in a haunted castle, the player must use his pinball skills to defeat them from the Castle courtyard, Tower laboratory, and Dungeon catacombs. For a change of pace, activate various dimensional portals and play various mini-games with the mischievous goblins. Defeat the denizens on all three tables, then unlock the secret table and confront the Goblin King in an attempt to vanquish his minions and seal the vortex for another hundred years.

* WhereItAllBegan: In the "Play All" mode, beating all tables leads to a final one set in a demonic redo of "Castle".


* PinballScoring: This is of course a pinball game, but this game takes the cake to a degree:
** On both "Castle" and "Dungeon" there is a challenge where a target opens up ('Vortex' on "Castle" and 'Trap Door' on "Dungeon" which starts a 3-ball multiball where your only objective is: [[spoiler:"Hit the Vortex/Shoot the Trap Door for MILLIONS!"]]
** Maxing out the Multiball Jackpot in any of the tables, especially the [[spoiler:Tower Table]].
** [[spoiler:There exists a [[GoodBadBugs glitch]] on the Tower Table which will, when done right, leave one challenge mode active almost infinitely, which can be quite amusing during Multiball.]]

!!''3-D Ultra Pinball: Creep Night'' demonstrates the following tropes:

* AmusingInjuries: During the main game, goblins will sometimes run around the playfield, taunting the player to hit them with the pinball and inflict various injuries.
* DemBones: The "Dungeon" level requires the player to hit various skeletons to return them to their cells.
* {{Expy}}: The "Beast" from the Dungeon table is an obvious copy of FrankensteinsMonster.
* HauntedCastle: The "Castle" table takes place in a courtyard overrun with ghosts and goblins.
* MadScientistLaboratory: The setting of the "Tower" table.
* RatStomp: The player must clear out rats from the "Tower" laboratory table.
* RevenantZombie: The zombies in this game are reanimated corpses.
* SkillShot: Launch a ball softly from the plunger so it emerges from a different hole will reward you with 10,000,000 points.
* SpellingBonus: Each of the table has a six-letter word present -- "Castle" has G-O-B-L-I-N, "Tower" has M-O-N-S-T-E-R, and "Dungeon" has O-U-T-L-A-W. Spell each one to activate the Ball Locks for Multiball.
* ViciousCycle: The vortex to the Underworld only opens every hundred years.
* VideoMode: There are three different Video Modes, one for each table.
** On "Castle", collect five keys to open a door and start the Video Mode. Shoot various passing supernatural creatures for as many points as possible.
