What do you get when you mix drugs and game design? If you said E.T. for the Atari 2600 you'd probably be right. If you said Plunderball for the Philips CD-i we'd say that you're in line with our best guess. In all seriousness this game is definitely unique to say the least. Imagine a futuristic soap opera with a pinball twist and you get Plunderball. As odd of a game it may be, it does grab you in and becomes addictive very quickly. The story begins with the kidnapping of a space princess played by some hot blonde chick we don't know and moves on from there as you hit certain objects on the pinball field.

This game was developed by ISG Productions in association with Philips Interactive Media of America. Very little is known about the history of Plunderball except that it was featured in various catalogues by Philips as was the case with many unreleased CD-i games. When show cased to the public for the first time at Classic Gaming EXPO 2002 it certainly was one of the strangest CD-i games ever to grace the system. Probably best described by the games abstract ripped directly from the CD featured below and described by R.W. Creative Director of OlderGames as Wing Commander meets Pinball. This is a great game that surprised all who tried it.
