3D Pinball: Space Cadet is actually one of three tables from Full Tilt! Pinball, published by Maxis.
The primary gameplay difference is that, while Full Tilt! Pinball had multiball, 3D Pinball will award "replays" instead of locking the balls.
|This needs some investigation.|
Discuss ideas and findings on the talk page.
Specifically: Check for other parsed words in retail and proto versions, linked source mentions "QUOTES" and "CINEMATRONICS".
During the game, type in hidden test. You will now be able to control the ball using the mouse and gain access to the following functions by pressing the respective keys:
- Y: The title bar will change to "Pinball", and after a while will start displaying the current framerate in the title bar.
- M: A "Mem:" window will pop up showing the amount of memory used by the game.
- H: Ends the game with one billion points. However, the score will always be below the first legitimate score.
- R: Promotes you by one rank.
If all four debug functions are accessed, in any order, the game will start to turn all updated frames red.
The menu contains an option called "Select table" which does not appear in the actual game, apparently left over from Full Tilt! Pinball. The message
No other table found similarly goes unused. The option executes code that is presumably intended to enable players to select a table, but in this game displays the following error:
There's a window called "Edit Pinball Components FOR TESTING ONLY" in the game's executable, which is also in Full Tilt! Pinball. It cannot be re-enabled in either game.
There's an invisible part of the plunger in the table background bitmap.
The version bundled with Windows NT 4.0 included ordering information for Full Tilt! Pinball in the About screen. This was removed from later versions.
The Windows XP version received an updated icon. The old icon is technically still in the Windows XP version, used as a fallback when Windows is running with low color depth.

Unused About Dialog
An About dialog box leftover from before the German Maelstrom protoype. The dialog appears in the resources, but does not appear in-game.
