Avatar Pinball - Sock Puppet PC Demo

I took a break from development this morning to package up a PC version of my current Avatar Pinball build. It contains the Sock Puppet Pinball mode - one of 5 different modes in the game.

To run it, you will need to have .NET Framework 3.5 and the XNA 3.1 redistributable package. Both are small, easy installs.

You can get .NET 3.5 here (note that if you are running Windows 7, you already have it):

.NET 3.5

The XNA 3.1 redistributable package can be downloaded here:

My pinball demo can be downloaded here:

Please do not redistribute the demo.

Use an Xbox controller if you have one connected to your PC.

Keyboard Controls:
  • Menu navigation with arrow keys, enter and escape or back
  • Launch ball with enter
  • Shift keys control flippers
  • Space nudges table
  • Escape pauses game
You will need a decently beefy system to run the demo.  My PC (Core 2 Quad / GeForce 8800 GT) runs it fine. My laptop not so much. The game is hard-coded to run windowed at  1280x720. I figure if your screen size isn't at least that big, your system probably can't handle it anyway... :-)
