Littlewing are one of those companies who do one thing, and do it very well. And the thing they do is computer simulations of pinball machines.
The graphics are clean and simple 2D copies of the pinball machines they are emulating. What makes the games special is the physics. The balls act like real pinballs. The flippers behave like real flippers.
Located in Japan, LittleWing's first computer pinball game, Tristan, was released in North America in 1991, and they have released a steady stream of successors.
The latest is Fairy Tower, and a free demo (Windows and Mac) is available for download.
