Pataank (pronounced "Puh-Tonk") is one of the most original concepts on the 3DO. Players control a puck from a third-person perspective, using its magnetic grips and thrusters to slam it around one of three pinball machine-like arenas to rack up points. Arenas include the Surf Room, Carnival O' Luv and Disaster Central. Each arena features an assortment of kitschy stock footage presented throughout its wall displays, ranging from girls in bikinis to natural disasters. The catchy music inspired P.F. Magic to release a soundtrack called "Torcano," named after one of the development team's favorite drinks. ~ Geoffrey Douglas Smith, All Game Guide
