Speaking of games, of course there will be no end, because it always will be popping those games that makes us interested. A few days ago I found an interesting pinball game. it’s called Zen Pinball.
Some of you would have never played this game, but for those of you who do not know about this game, here’s a little information.
Zen Pinball is a series of pinball machine video games for iOS and the PlayStation 3 developed by Zen Studios. The iOS releases are two separate applications, each containing one table; Zen Pinball: Rollercoaster, released July 7, 2008, and Zen Pinball: Inferno, released October 31, 2010.
Zen Pinball utilizes the same basic rules as a physical pinball machine, albeit in a virtual environment. As with a traditional pinball machine, the player fires a steel ball onto the playfield using a plunger. Once the ball is in play the player controls the flippers and can nudge the machine to influence the path of the ball. Each of the game’s tables become more complex as the game advances, opening new paths and opportunities.
In addition to traditional attempts to reach a high score, the game has specific missions tasked to the player. Both local and online multiplayer are supported, along with leaderboards and tournament competitions. Players will be able to activate a slow motion feature and can save game progress mid-game.
The gameplay is great with the physics engine it uses. There are several challenges and achievements to explore while playing the game. Control the flippers by tapping the left and right side of the screen. You can nudge the table once in a while too. It has multiplayer with up to four players using the Hotseat option.

If you want more tables, you can purchase them in the app. Other tables are 0.99 – 1.99 each. Here’s what the Wolverine table looks like.
Zen Pinball is also available for the iPhone and iPod Touch, but I find the larger screen real estate on the iPad makes for a more enjoyable game. I ran it on my iPod touch (4th Gen) and gameplay was a bit slower and controls less responsive.
Overall, this game is very interesting for those of you who like a pinball game. Please download this game now also on your device.
