Microsoft Pinball Arcade is a pinball video game from Microsoft. It was released on December 15, 1998 for Microsoft Windows and in 2001 for the Game Boy Color. The game is a collection of seven real pinball tables licensed by Gottlieb. These include: Baffle Ball (1931), Humpty Dumpty (1947), Knock Out (1950), Slick Chick (1963), Spirit of 76 (1975), Haunted House (1982), and Cue Ball Wizard (1992).
The Game Boy Color version features scaled-down graphics, due to hardware limitations. It also excludes the Humpty Dumpty and Cue Ball Wizard tables. A free trial version of the computer game is also available, with Haunted House as the only playable table. This game was designed for Windows 9x and Windows NT 4.0 but it can also natively run on Windows Vista, Windows 7 and Windows 10 without need to apply compatiblity mode.
