Pinball Quest is a video pinball game developed by Tose and published by Jaleco on the NES in 1989. The game simulates three more traditional pinball tables including "Pop! Pop!" which has a 50's rock 'n' roll theme, "Viva! Golf" with a golf theme, and "Circus" featuring a circus theme. These tables take advantage of the video game element an have features that would be impossible on a traditional pinball machine. In addition to the more traditional tables, Pinball Quest features "RPG Mode" which is a pinball adventure game with RPG elements where you play a ball that must rescue a kidnapped princess.
I first played this game after my cousin had borrowed it from a neighbor in the late 1980s. Having never been a big pinball fan, I wasn't really interested in the traditional three tables, but I was really interested in the RPG mode. We did pretty well and made it to the fourth section. Years later, using an emulator, I was able to beat the game.
I do not own this game, but I have beaten it.
