Be prepared for a visual banquet of characters and fun-filled possibilities. You'll find action and fun animation in every inch. There are two totally cool soundtracks, as well as all the bells, bings, clunks and pings you'd expect to find in the arcade. Multiple flippers, multiple levels, dual-table play and bonus shots galore will really test your skills. Get ready to drop a few bombs or get bats in your belfry!

Set in 1962, with the devastation of World War II and the threat of nuclear warfare fresh in everyone's mind, the possibility of a nuclear attack strikes fear in the hearts of people throughout the civilized world.

The Cold War has come to a head. Nuclear War is imminent. You are responsible for the protection of your country. Prepare for DEFCON 1 - full-scale war - brace yourself for the inevitable counterattack, and have a blast!

Ruiner is an intense, super-fast, totally killer game. Keep your eyes on the ball and blow up anything that moves, but watch out for civilians! This action-filled pinball game is going to blow your mind!

Deep in the uncharted forests of a strange land stands a castle whose sinister tower casts a foreboding shadow across the surrounding trees. The tower can be seen for miles. Tales of its purpose abound but few have ventured to climb its heights and fewer still returned to tell the tale.

You, seeking adventure and action-packed pinball thrills, enter the tower to discover its blackhearted purpose. You must battle with the strange inhabitants and their all-powerful mistress, the evil sorceress. Will this be your last pinball game ever? Will you return to sanity and live to fight another day?

Sure! It is possible to defeat the Tower and bring it crashing down, but doing it is a real challenge. You'll have to use the magic of the tower to cast three spells. It's going to be hell, and it will drive you bats, but you'll have a devil of a good time.
