Pinball 3D Space Cadet (for Windows)

I'm sure that many of you have played that almost vintage computer game that was in Windows 2000 and a few other ones.
Well, I downloaded it a few days ago and I thought that I might start a thread in case any of you remember it.

I got ridiculously good at it while lifeguarding at college; we had an unofficial office leaderboard going. It was a pretty fun pinball game!

Sometimes when starting a thread, it does help a bit if you have something constructive to say, y'know.

I have a copy of Full Tilt Pinball around somewhere; that's the full, 3-table version of the game published by Maxis which included proper multiball play.

Raymond Chen mentioned that the game couldn't be ported to 64-bit Windows, which is why we don't see any sign of it anymore.

I would be intrigued as to whether anyone here ever actually managed to make it to the "Maelstrom" mode described in the Help file without cheating. It sounds difficult and laborious.
