Thumbs up Ballywoo - Vintage Pinball

Ballywoo


Ballywoo recreates one of the first commercial, mass-produced pinball machines ever made. That machine launched the career of Ray Moloney's Bally Manufacturing Corporation.

Move back to the year 1932 and feel the history.

Features include an OpenFeint leaderboard.

Pinball without bells and whistles or flippers?

Interesting.

Yeah, it's very austere indeed. But that's how it all started.

Yes, it's actually the same game. I suppose Ballyhoo (Ballyhoo is the original name of the game we're simulating) was called pinball because it had different kind of launching mechanism than in bagatelle games.

Here's a picture of the original Ballyhoo pinball:
