So you want a virtual pinball machine - but you don't have the space for the AtGames Legends Pinball? The answer is the awesome Legends Micro! It's just as much fun as its larger sibling, with the same great connectivity, access to AtGames' online services and content, and of course that lightning-fast 60fps gameplay. But it's small enough to go where the Legends Pinball just can't!
Get right into the action with the 50 included tables, all faithfully modelled on real pinball machines. You can play 8 massive titles from Taito, and 42 great games from Zaccaria. But the Legends Micro really comes into its own when connected to the internet and customised. You can build your own library of pinball games, and have an entire arcade's worth of legendary pinball machines sat on your dining table!
As soon as you switch the machine on, you'll be able to play any of the preloaded games. With 42 titles from Zaccaria, the famed Italian pinball manufacturer, plus eight classic games from industry giants Taito, they're perfect for you to hone your skills. Sharpen your reflexes with Zaccaria's 'Aerobatics', 'Devil Riders Retro' or 'Winter Sports' before taking on Taito's 'Space Invaders', 'Arkanoid' and 'Bubble Bobble'.

Then connect the Legends Micro to the internet to access the full range of AtGames services. This includes a shop full of game packs and other downloadable content, plus the celebrated ArcadeNet game streaming service (subscription required). The Micro has 16GB of system storage for all your additional game packs. You can compete on global leaderboards and multiplayer contests with online party play, and access further downloadable content, game and system updates - and even build friends lists with other players.
Perhaps most excitingly, the Legends Micro is 'Bring Your Own Game' compatible. This means you can connect your external PC to the Legends Micro via USB and HDMI, and access the games in your PC's library! You can also stream any game content you could stream from your external device, via Steam or other gaming services. This essentially places almost all virtual pinball games ever made at your disposal, and allows you to use the Legends Micro as your controller and display for almost anything.
With various options available for adjusting the display - especially valuable when playing third-party games from the internet - you can configure the Legends Micro to look, and play, exactly as you'd like it to. It is just as connectible and configurable as any other device in the AtGames Legends family!.
The cabinet's hardware might be small, but it is fierce! The main playfield is a 15.6-inch LCD monitor running at 1080p HD/60fps, for ultra-smooth, crystal-clear game visuals. It's adjustable for image preferences, and can even display in different ways for certain times of day, to maximise clarity and reduce eye strain. In the backbox is a smaller 8-inch LCD monitor that recreates scoreboards, backbox art and more. Sound is taken care of with a powerful, adjustable stereo system.
For controlling the action, you have two pairs of side-mounted buttons - one pair for flippers, and one pair for nudge. With an accelerometer inside, you can also physically nudge the cabinet for extra realism. Haptic feedback transmits all those playfield impacts into your fingertips, and when combined with the special perspective-rendered playfields, complete with moving shadows and superfast light displays, you'll be so immersed in the game that you'll forget it's not a real pinball! The Legends Micro squeezes an entire 80s or 90s pinball arcade into an impossibly tiny tabletop package!
