3D Pinball for Windows – Space Cadet (3D Pinball for short, AKA: 3D Pinball Table, Microsoft Windows Pinball, Microsoft 3D Pinball) is a classic pinball game originally created for Microsoft Windows 95 (packaged with Microsoft Plus! 95) ~ Windows XP, developed by Cinematronics (David Plummer) using C language, and published by Maxis Software in 1995. Space Cadet is one of the tables of Full Tilt! Pinball.

As a small game with keyboard operation attached to Windows, 3D Pinball appeared as one of the attached games in Windows NT, Windows Me, Windows 2000 and Windows XP (32-bit) operating systems. On Windows 95, users can add this game by installing the Microsoft Plus! extension package. Windows XP (64-bit), Windows Vista and subsequent operating systems have removed this game due to compatibility issue (a collision detection bug). Fortunately, even if you’re using Windows 10, you can still run this game without any problems.

The mission of this game is to win as many points as possible by hitting buffers, targets and flags with a steel ball (on behalf of the role of a space fleet member), and complete missions to increase player’s rank. The game is divided into 9 levels, denoting by titles (Cadet, Ensign, Lieutenant, Captain, Lieutenant Commander, Commander, Commodore, Admiral, and Fleet Admiral). The lowest military rank is cadet, the highest is five-star general. Only after selecting and completing a series of missions can you move to the next level. The higher the military rank you are in, the higher the bonus points you can get. Start with 3 balls and cadet level, no matter how skilled you are, and try your best to win more balls and raise your military rank when you play.
