Crüe Ball is a 1992 pinball video game developed by Electronic Arts for the Mega Drive. Themed to glam metal band Mötley Crüe, it features three of their songs: "Dr. Feelgood", "Live Wire" and "Home Sweet Home".
The game's prototype name was Twisted Flipper. The producer of the game, Richard Robbins, initially pursued the name "Headbanger Ball," but MTV balked at a license and Mötley Crüe was added relatively late in development.
This game was designed by two people who previously worked on pinball games: Mark Sprenger (artist for such games as Space Shuttle (1984), High Speed (1986) and Diner (1990) and Brian L. Schmidt (composer for Space Station, Black Knight 2000 and various pinball games by Data East Pinball/Sega Pinball (now Stern Pinball, Inc.).
