Williams Pinball Volume 4 sweeps into Pinball FX3 and Williams Pinball today!
…and a few tips your kid-self would have loved to know when you were sinking quarters into these games.
Williams Pinball Volume 4 — a three-pack including White Water, Red and Ted’s Road Show and Hurricane — is now available to download on:
Xbox One & Windows 10
Also individually on Google Play today. iOS App Store version will arrive shortly!
It’s the early ‘90s. Life is good — you’ve just beaten Super Metroid.
You go down to the local arcade to play some pinball. You finally managed to start multiball on Road Show, hit the skillshot on Hurricane, and nailed that shot into Insanity Falls on White Water on White Water. As these tables arrive to Pinball FX3 here are a few tips you wish you knew back then:
White Water has a tricky sinkhole return, just left above the flippers. If you don’t want to lose your ball right when you would get it back, keep the right flipper upright to catch it safely. Another advanced trick to be aware of is that if you miss your first shot on the upper playfield – no problem! You can just nudge the ball back to the flipper and try again.
Souvenirs might be worth your while on Road Show, as they give bonuses to the main modes. Try for the skillshot — which gives you one for free — or trade in some of your points in Bob’s Souvenir Bunker. If you’re having trouble landing that shot on the Blast Targets, you can trap the ball on the flipper adjacent to them for a short time to aim your shot better.
Hurricane rewards consistent ramp shots, so if you get into the rhythm of shooting the middle ramp, you will shoot to the top of the leaderboards. Same goes for the Hurricane ramp on the right, you can rake in big millions as the game gives you back the ball to make the next shot instantly.
You can try these tricks out right now in Williams Pinball Volume 4 now available PlayStation 4, Xbox One & Windows 10, Steam, Nintendo Switch and Mac. Also individually on Google Play today. iOS App Store version will arrive shortly!

Bally favorites The Party Zone, Black Rose and Attack from Mars hitting Pinball FX3 in Volume 2
We are happy to announce that The Party Zone, Black Rose and (you might have guessed if you follow our social channels😉 ) Attack from Mars are joining the Williams™ Pinball collection for Pinball FX3 on PlayStation 4, Xbox One, Windows 10, Steam and Nintendo Switch on December 4, 2018 for $9.99, once again including classic and remastered versions of each table.
Attack from Mars
The Party Zone
Just as dragons came to life and a fisherman reeled ‘em in for past tables, Williams Pinball Volume 2 presents remastered versions of each table in addition to the simulated interpretations straight from the 1990s. In The Party Zone, host Captain B. Zarr comes to life as a 3D interactive character parading around on a giant rocket, while Attack from Mars features a 3D-animated general barking orders as the missile launchers fire upon a flying saucer that circles the playfield. At the same time, Black Rose, queen of the high seas, swings on the mast as you loot a treasure chest and fire an interactive cannon.
With the release, also comes the option for players in the PC Steam version of Pinball FX3 to play the tables in their original form. This means family filter off by default and unaltered cabinet and playfield art on all three Volume 2 tables.
We’ve got one more surprise, the option to turn off cinematic cameras with Remastered graphics is now present in the Options menu. So you can enjoy the Remastered effects while keeping the pinball immersion of an unmoving view.
We are grateful for your continuous feedback, which helped us in improving the Williams collection and Pinball FX3 as a whole together.
See you on the leaderboards!
