Pinball is a Nintendo Entertainment System game in the Pinball series.

The game received a Famicom Disk System port in 1989, which was exclusive to the Disk Writer service, as well as a Nintendo VS. System release as VS. Pinball.


It is a Nintendo themed pinball game featuring cartoon animals including penguins and seals. There is both a standard Game A mode, and a faster Game B mode. The game also supports two players. The game features cameos of Mario and Lady during a mini-game.
