Pinball games make great titles for the Game Boy Color. Introducing The Little Mermaid 2 – Pinball Frenzy, the latest, greatest pinball simulation for the ultra popular Nintendo handheld. Say goodbye to boredom in long journeys and say hello to the addiction of two fantastic mermaid themed tables.

First of all, Pinball Frenzy plays great. The table design is well thought out and addition to the two selectable tables there are a total of 16 sub-games to play. These sub games add variety to the gameplay and keep the game feeling fresh. While you are playing you must hit certain ramps and sections of the playing field to unlock these games so you always have something to aim for. Successful completion of the sub games unlocks bonuses like multipliers and the all important and addictive multi-ball.

The graphics in Pinball Frenzy are colourful and well drawn. The playing field scrolls smoothly, a welcome change to the screen swapping to show you the top of the field. The audio is also catchy but can be turned off if it gets too much for you.

Your high scores are saved so each time you play you can try to beat best attempts. This is an appealing part of playing pinball because when your friend beats your score, the determination you feel to regain the top spot is overwhelming. Overall, a polished, playable pinball title that deserves checking out.
