MICRO-80 Pinball Machine was written by Garth Jensen and is published as type-in source code (for TRS-80 BASIC) in SoftSide Issue 22 (Volume 2, Number 10), July 1980. The game had four play options: African Safari; Random Targets; Normal Pinall; and Wipeout.
The same issue had a follow-on article examining the source code and suggesting methods of alteration.
