Pinball tables are a nightmare... but I'll leave it at that job well done.

Cool work! I love pinball. Would have been nice to incorporate some spinning wheels somewhere. Or maybe a water bottle.

matthewcosta (Level 5 Captain) @ 11/10/2008 11:02
wow one week, great work, congrats on 1st place.

i l o v e It.
You are Incredibly Talented. i Love How you've Got So Much going on in One Pic. So Much Fine Detail... Simply Outstanding. :)

Congratulations Jalonso! Its really nice, there's a LOT going on here. You're great with details, so i would guess this challenge suited you pretty well. Also, LOL at the Armstrong comment.

Congrats for the 1st place

@Pixelarg, the PJ staff is not really the smartest of people but we are also not retarded. You have been banned as Tuti, tutiman and every other tut for being negative and not contributing anything to the pixeljoint community. I see you have still matured nothing at all.

I will not ban you right now because you are stupid enough to think its because your comment below. I will however check on your every comment left in any Pixeljoint pixelart. One more crappy one...then you can rest assured that it will be me who bans you.

really really i think that... "I think that Jalons won only due to lack of participants" (translated by google) I ONLY THINK ;)

Tadashi Blossom (Level 1 Rookie) @ 8/23/2008 22:39
Really? I think it matches that saturated tackiness that IS pinball. Has my vote :D Well done, Jalonso.

Pixelarg (Level 6 Yonkyu) @ 8/23/2008 05:06
i really no like ó.ò

the color are really satured :S

d-p (Level 11 Psychopath) @ 8/21/2008 11:04
jalonso, i didn't notice you to be a bling bling pixelelr. Nice amount of detail.

de Thch (Level 1 Private) @ 8/21/2008 09:19
It is equal to the true pinball machine (italiano = flipper)

taquito143 (Level 5 Killer Klown) @ 8/20/2008 12:31
Exellent Jal!      

jalonso (Level 11 Godfather) @ 8/20/2008 12:03
In my mind this was a Lance Armstrong tribute. Only ONE ball

AdamPlays (Level 6 SWAT) @ 8/20/2008 10:10
Does this machine have a multi-balls feature?  

Skull (Level 11 CEO) @ 8/20/2008 03:08
Oooh, the pretty flashing lights..    O.O

inkspot (Level 4 Button Man) @ 8/20/2008 03:03
I like the theme because I like bicycling but unfortunately i couldn't understand shit from this blinking psychedelia.

MashPotato (Level 7 Underboss) @ 8/18/2008 08:52
Yep, that captures all the madness of a pinball machine
Spiffy work!

dumbo (Level 4 Mercenary) @ 8/17/2008 06:53
Very cool work  here mate!

Now make it playable, and you'll win my heart!

Shiru (Level 6 SWAT) @ 8/17/2008 03:47
It's really cool, but also messy because of all these bright colors. I think, it will be very hard to see where is ball in actual game.

Stickman (Level 7 Sheriff) @ 8/17/2008 03:24
You got really involved with this one here:) Such a nice design and the cyclists at the bottom is a cool touch

skamocore (Level 11 Dolphin) @ 8/17/2008 01:13
Personally, I think the background needs a bit of desaturation....and the bright colours should be used a bit more sparingly, with bonus areas etc... highlighted with firey colours instead of the whole board. Also, I think it's hard to initially make out that he's a cyclist. In that regard, I think your second WIP in the WIP thread is much nicer than this.

Maybe the left "LAP" should be around the other way, at the moment I read it as "PAL"

"Finish" looks more like "Einlish", also I don't like the metaphor, Finish implies that going down the hole is where you should end up, maybe you should have the hole that's labeled "Jackpot" as "Finish" instead.

Love the animation, especially the LCD effect. I'd still vote for this even if there were 99 entries :P

shmupstick (Level 7 Sheriff) @ 8/17/2008 00:38
Both ramps looks impossible though and the upper right flipper seems useless.

hotnikkelz (Level 1 Rookie) @ 8/16/2008 23:52
dayum that's hot shit

Varock Shade (Level 7 Underboss) @ 8/16/2008 23:15
Had to fav this It looks really nice, and the amount of detail is amazing!

DoomDoom (Level 5 Detective) @ 8/16/2008 22:45
awesome man! Just very good job

amerup (Level 4 Murderer) @ 8/16/2008 21:13
Got my vote.

jalonso (Level 11 Godfather) @ 8/16/2008 21:07
Updated. Thanks zi :)
I originally tried road lines on the road/ramps but they looked silly so I removed them.

zi-double (Level 9 Necrophiliac) @ 8/16/2008 20:19
what to say !!!

have so many nice parts ... idea is great also colours. I like pinballs and will play with pleasure ...

7 bicyclists in lover part are great and to put brown part in fliper like terrain /mountain/ is perfect ...

maybe just somwhere can make something like road  with white dividing line, but this is just to say something except nice ;)

this is simply creazy work for 1 week

in upper right part where have round of 3 metal lines /after start of the ball/ look at very thick because have 3 light blue px in vertical - maybe one of them must dark than parts will look thin.

Setzer (Level 8 Cannibal) @ 8/16/2008 19:56
jal i absolutely love this.

Souly (Level 5 Killer Klown) @ 8/16/2008 19:55
I thought it was a crazy captain falcon for some reason....
