Pinball on Steroids

More Tables! More Duke! More Balls!

Flip this -- the coolest, fastest, most innovative quicksilver ball-basher in the known universe! Across five savage, fully-animated tables, from the ricochet riot of Firestorm to the intense overload of Duke Nukem, Balls of Steel delivers all the authentic gravitational pyrotechnics of real pinball. View all the table at once or get close for some whiplash scrolling action! Go gonzo with 5 ball multi-ball mayhem! Squash scampering aliens to bloody oblivion! Hit rails, flippers, pops, sinkholes, targets, magnetic flippers, ramps, the 'cyclotron' ball accelerator -- every conceivable pinball feature in all its glory! It's authentic pinball action -- whiplash fast and finger-burning good! And hey, it it's good enough for Duke...then it's good enough for you!


A super-secret experiment goes wrong. In the government's hidden genetics lab a containment system fails, and the scientists find themselves at the bottom of the food chain. In fact, the mutations have decided to conduct a few experiments of their own.

The Adrenaline Vault by David Laprad

"Balls of Steel is a scorchingly hot, highly addictive pinball game that assaults the senses with terrific table graphics and animations, and ear-shattering sound effects. More importantly, the tables are remarkably playable, and have been infused with an extraordinary amount of creativity, imagination, and (this is the best part) out-and-out fun!"

"From the theme of each table to the smallest particulars, the overall feel of the game is perfect. Each table is a flawless amalgam of animation, sounds, and flashing lights; the missions and submodes propel players forward, urging them to play just one more game; and the nearly impeccable ball physics lend credibility to the game as a semi-serious simulation. Yet through it all, the game never fails to entertain and surprise, and with five tables and a worldwide scoreboard to subjugate, players will be pumping away for a long time."

"Overall: That is The Adrenaline Vault's Reviewer's Choice Award you saw at the top of the first page of this review. No matter that Balls of Steel features two-dimensional, scrolling tables in a time of unmitigated, three-dimensional realism. No matter that other titles have more strictly adhered to simulating the actual mechanics of real-world pinball. Balls of Steel brings outstanding art and animation, youthful enthusiasm, and consummate gameplay to the table, and executes the concept with raging brilliance. Simply put, I have never been injected with such a stimulating and addictive pinball drug. And in case you are wondering, yes, there are strippers in the Duke Nukem table."
