In addition to their built-in features, these virtual pinball tables have full universal global leaderboard support thanks to the Legends Arcade Platform.
Playable via BYOG™ (Bring Your Own Game), which allows you to stream your favorite PC-based video games from PC digital distribution platforms on your Legends Arcade Family product in real-time either from one of our optimized distribution centers or for free from your own Windows PC using the ArcadeNetLink app, Frank Thomas’ Big Hurt is a home run for anyone who loves virtual pinball.

As long as you get a score higher than the default high score in The Pinball Arcade, you enter your initials, and the high score displays on the scoreboard, the necessary synchronization file will automatically be exported after leaving BYOG Cloud.
Frank Thomas’ Big Hurt was released to critical acclaim in 1995 and this virtual pinball implementation remains true to the arcade original. The playfield of the game is laid out like a stadium with cheering crowds and a play-by-play announcer, and features a dynamic moving baseball glove. The game has three flippers, two pop bumpers, two slingshots, drop targets, a captive ball, and a four ball multiball, helping bring all of the excitement of America’s Pastime to classic pinball action.
