Pro Pinball: Big Race USA is another title in the excellent series of pinball simulators created by the duo Cunning Development and Empire Interactive. In this version, the creators set the bar even higher, improving almost all aspects of the game.
In Pro Pinball: Big Race USA The book focuses on the theme of a taxi journey from New York to San Francisco and back. Along the way we will take passengers with us and deliver them to designated places, run away from the police or eliminate other cars from the race. We carry out all these tasks, of course, by directing the balls at the indicated targets, ramps and bumpers. In the central part of the table there is a map of the United States, on which our progress is shown on an ongoing basis.
In addition to the traditional improvements received with each edition of the series, this time the authors have introduced a number of important changes to the gameplay. Once again, the physical model and the already excellent, prerendered graphics in resolutions of up to 1600x1200 have been improved, adding new effects such as motion blur. A new feature is the introduction of five different difficulty levels, which makes the task easier for beginners.
In multi-ball mode we can play up to 10 balls at the same time. The number of mini-games played on the display has been increased, as well as the number of available table view settings - now there are as many as eight of them. According to the tradition, in the operator menu we can set a countless number of game options, including the sensitivity of buttons, the power of paws or bumpers, and even the degree of table wear.
In Big Race USA implemented - for the first time in this type of game - the possibility of simultaneous competition between two players in the Head-To-Head mode via the Internet or LAN. In addition, we can play in the traditional way, playing alternately even four at one computer.
