Pinball is an extremely popular arcade game where a player uses paddles (called flippers) to cause the desired movement for one or more balls inside a pinball machine. A pinball machine is a glass-covered cabinet containing a playing field populated with lights, targets, bumpers, ramps, and various other objects depending on its design. The game’s primary objective is to score as many points as possible by hitting targets and making multiple shots with the flippers before all balls “drain” at an exit usually situated at the bottom of the playing field. Most pinball games are divided into turns (referred to as “balls,” having the same meaning as “lives” in video games). The game completes when all balls have dropped from play.
