Estos tipos se dedican a hacer juegos de pinball pero se toman el trabajo de comprar los originales, desmantelarlos, convertir cada pieza en un modelo 3D y luego armar una simulación lo más similar posible a la experiencia de jugar en vivo. Hasta emulan los programas que corrían originalmente para el juego sea una replica exacta del original. Y todo para qué? Para que lo podamos jugar en el iPad, iPhone, XBox, Nintendo DS, y varias otras plataformas. El fin de semana me la pasé jugando con la versión en mi iPad. Una masa.

Arthur grabbed hold of t and tried to stop his hands shaking. He pressed the entry for the relevant page. The screen flashed and swirled and resolve into a page of print. Arthur stared at it.
“It doesn’t have an entry!” he burst out.
Ford looked over his shoulder.
“Yes, it does,” he said, “down there, see at the bottom of the screen, just above Eccentrica Gallumbits, the triple-breasted whore of Eroticon 6.”
Arthur followed Ford’s finger, and saw where it was pointing. For a moment it still didn’t register, then his mind nearly blew up.
“What? Harmless? Is that all it’s got to say? Harmless! One Word!”
“Well, for God’s sake, I hope you managed to rectify that a bit”
“Oh yes, well, I managed to transmit a new entry off to the editor. He had to trim it a bit, but it’s still an improvement”
“And what does it say now?” asked Arthur
“Mostly harmless,” admitted Ford with a slightly embarrassed cough.
