Pinball Paradise: Museum boasts Europe's largest collection

Hidden away in a nondescript basement in Budapest, the Hungarian Pinball Museum is a blast from the past.

More than 130 machines take you back to a time before computer games, but many of the same elements are involved - graphic design, music, sound and the art of immersing players in a good story.

The museum opened in April last year and is popular with adults and children alike. It has even hosted international competitions for pinball wizards who travel to Budapest from all around Europe.

BBC News went to meet the men behind the Pbal Gallery.
