Rules
In this pinball game, you try to make it around the solar system on your journey to the Sun. The first planet is always Pluto. In order to move from planet to planet, you have to knock down three drop targets in quick succession, or hit a specially marked target when it is lit. Each planet reached gives you a 20,000 point bonus at the end of the ball.

At the center of the playfield is a 5 by 5 grid. Lighting up the grid causes a visor to lift, revealing the robot's eye sockets. Locking balls in each socket causes the robot to say, "Now I see you," after which a bonus multi-ball begins. Re-locking a ball makes Pin*Bot announce, "Shoot for Solar Value," allowing you to shoot the free ball up the left ramp to collect a jackpot. The jackpot value increases 50,000 points every time a ball has traveled up the ramp. The jackpot total carries over from game to game until it is collected.

There was a home version released for the Nintendo Entertainment System in the 1990s. Pin*Bot is also playable on Pinball Hall of Fame: The Williams Collection.

Sequels
Pin*Bot was followed by two sequels: The Machine: Bride of Pin*Bot (released in 1991) and Jack*Bot (released in 1995).
