Silverball is a 1993 pinball computer game developed by Digital Extremes and Epic Games (formerly Epic MegaGames) and published by Team17. It is basically a set of Epic Pinball tables distributed through retail. Silverball was the first set of pinball games created by James Schmalz and paved the way for the development of Epic Pinball.

Tables

  • "Fantasy"
  • "Blood"
  • "Snooker Champ"
  • "Odyssey"

These tables do not appear in Epic Pinball.

The shareware version included the "Fantasy" table and nonplayable versions of "Blood", "Snooker Champ", and "Odyssey" in which the plunger does not work.

There are also two tables which appear in the later released Silverball Plus 2, as well a bonus table that could be ordered for free when purchasing Silverball directly from Epic MegaGames:

  • "Duel" - This table is unique to Silverball Plus 2, and is of similar design as the Epic Pinball table "Magic".
  • "Warbot" - This table is unique to Silverball Plus 2, and is of similar design as the Epic Pinball table "Excalibur".
  • "Nova" - This is a bonus table, and is unique to Silverball (but uses similar music as the "Space Journey" pinball table from Epic Pinball).
