The winners of the "shittiest playfield award" goes to:

At 3rd place and failing hard

Gunboat, 272x68 giving a 42" monitor friendly 18496 pixels

At 2nd place and failing harder but not quite hard enough

First Person pinball, 152x95, 14440 pixels "useless first person view"

and our grand prize winner of the "You didn't even try, did you" award goes to

Skarbnik, 144x100, giving the finest of 14400 pixels.

(yes, I was that bored).

Mercs did it to try and reproduce the same arcade maps. The arcade game has a test mode that shows a grid of blocks (tiles) on the screen, to get the same proportion of blocks horizontally vs vertically we had to make it narrow. If we hadn't done this then it would have looked wrong and we would have had to re-invent the maps. The original game was very tall and I had to use the full PAL height to get it to look as close as I could to the arcade.

Can you scratch that spot right there? Oh yes... that's the one...

It's not that small (WIM that is), but soon enough we'll know for sure
