Flipper is a game published by the French magazine Hebdogiciel. The listing has been divided in 2 parts (Issues 102 and 103 of 27/09/85 and 04/10/85). The game has been created by Michel Ladegaillerie.

The same game as in the bar, but gratis, it's so great!

Flipper - TILT


Throw a ball by pressing and releasing the spacebar; the launch force depends on the pressing time.

Flip with the left and right arrow keys.

Pressing ESPACE shakes your billiards (what is represented by the thrill of the ball), but beware of the TILT.

You have to hit all the blue targets to make them reappear with the next ball, it will give you two extra balls.

If you reach 50000 points or the target at the end of the hall, a pleasant surprise awaits you.

You get a bonus of 500 points for each ball that goes in the turnstile or on the green lights of the side lanes.

Note: The published listing is for playing with the keyboard.
