Pro Pinball: FJ on the Mac
1:48 PM | Andy Largent | Comment on this story

Back in September IMG reported that Empire Interactive's Pro Pinball: Fantastic Journey, the fourth in their amazing pinball game series, was available as a Mac/PC hybrid in the UK; unfortunately the Mac version never reached US shores, and never received widespread distribution.
Yesterday a reader wrote in to MacGamer letting them know that the Mac application needed to run the game is now available for you to download and use with the PC boxed version, though Empire considers it an unsupported beta of the game. The included instructions clarify how to get started with the game:

The two files MacFantasticJourney.sit and MacFantasticJourney.zip both
contain the same thing so take your pick. If you unstuff it to a folder
on your mac and put the PC CD in it should just work.

If you want to speed up loading drag the DAT folder from the PC CD into the
folder with the game in it.

If you have any comments our questions about this patch, then you can
send an e-mail to propin@empire-interactive.com

There are a few "graphical glitches" in the game, though they aren't said to affect the gameplay. The Empire Interactive site might feel a little slow to you, so we'll see about perhaps mirroring the files on MGF. Pinball fans should definitely give this one a look, as it's got some very nice features and great graphics. Check out the official site for more information.
