Place for mentioning a video game in this article[edit]

Hi, I'm creating an article for a recent video game Yoku's Island Express, which is a platformer that uses pinball mechanics (the draft is at Draft:Yoku's Island Express). I believe the article on Pinball should mention it (MOS:BTW), however I'm unsure in which section. Pinball#Computer pinball simulation might seem to be a good place, however Yoku's Island Express does not simulate a pinball machine. Perhaps Pinball#In popular culture section would be a better choice, but pinball in that game is much more prominent/important than merely being featured. I welcome any suggestions.

Limited time[edit]

In "The primary objective of the game is to score as many points as possible, often within a limited time." I removed the limited time part, as each game usually consists of a number of balls for which the player has unlimited time. Individual tasks may be set that offer points for completion before a countdown finishes, but the primary objective of the game is to score points, however long it may take, rewarded with free plays and/or your name on the hi score list. Completing time-bound tasks just makes it quicker to get a high score. Regards Guffydrawers (talk) 20:39, 8 June 2019 (UTC)
