I don't think it is beatable.
I learned a valuable lesson: Even if I want the table to be more visually representative than fun to play, I should still test the tables while I'm painting them. I ended up re-doing a lot of the visual work just because I wanted the ball to be able to move around.

This was the prompt.

I was trying to recreate it. Like I mentioned in the description though, I lost a lot of work because I was erasing parts to make the table beatable (which never actually happened). Next time I try to do something like this, I'll play it frequently as I'm filling it in.

Aaaaaaaaaaaaaah! I completely didn't realize what your image was based on. Knowing this is pretty great. I like the idea of drawing something and then just seeing if it's interactive or not or a game or not later. That's kinda what Foster and I did in that game that I posted in those comments. ;-)

I also like the Easter egg in the edit section!

This is a well-rendered table, but I also wanted to shout-out for your Venus(#1) table on the tumblr you posted. I was fascinated by the entire background strobing when the edges are hit. For the figure details/relief, I assume you used the "transition" tool?

It's interesting to see people taking the PlingPling tool beyond the confines of a typical pinball table. :)

I'm not sure what the "transition tool" is. The red of the Venus table is "Target", the shadows are erased areas, and the negative space is one giant bumper.


Ah! I meant "connection" tool, not "transition." I haven't messed around with it enough to figure out how it's used.

You've done nice work with PlingPling. :)
