Three of the four tables feature an additional flipper for extra skill shots and the scoreboard has been revamped, much like real pinball tables, to an array of small LEDs allowing much more detail, providing more legible scores and allowing the display of animations associated with special bonuses and skill-shots. But the main selling point was the fact that it was essentially the same brilliant engine behind Pinball Dreams and featured four brand-new tables to play on. The 'Billion Dollar Gameshow' is the duffest table Digital Illusions ever produced, lacking enough features to keep it one's attention. 'Speed Devils' is better but lack character and suffers from an all-too-easy bonus multiplier system and seemingly magnetic side-exit lanes. However the two remaining tables more than make up for these. 'Stones and Bones' is yet another horror-themed table with loads to keep the play interesting and 'Partyland' is arguably the best of all, with more features than any of the others, based around a garish theme-park. These latter two also make particularly good use of the new LED-display. Pinball Fantasies is another brilliant pinball simulator, the ideal sequel to Pinball Dreams. But Digital Illusions obviously thought they could do better, and in 1995, Pinball Illusions completed the trilogy.
