Pinball Construction Set was a video game by Bill Budge originally published in 1982, through Budge's own company BudgeCo, for the Apple II. In 1983 it was released by Electronic Arts along with ports to the Atari 8-bit family and Commodore 64. It created the construction set a new genre of video games in which users can build and play their own virtual pinball machine by dropping bumpers, flippers, spinners, and other parts onto a table. Gravity and the physics model can be modified and tables can be saved to floppy disks and freely traded. There can be 1-4 players.
Boldly claims a nearly telepathic link between player and machine and to be the best 8 bit program ever written, as of 1983 anyway!
