This week’s App Store App of the Week is Pinball Arcade. Each week Apple features one app for App of the Week and makes it free to download. This week’s pick is tons of fun for iPhone, iPod Touch, and the iPad. Pinball Arcade brings the classic feel and sounds of the old school pinball machines you used to see in the arcade. These are digital replicas of actual pinball machines, and it is really fun to revisit them this way.
Pinball Arcade features exact recreations of the all-time greatest pinball tables from Williams®, Bally®, Stern Pinball®, and Gottlieb® together in one game. Every flipper, bumper, sound effect, and display pixel has been painstakingly emulated in astonishing detail.
Monster Bash™, Gorgar™, Circus Voltaire™, Funhouse™, Tales of the Arabian Nights™, Medieval Madness™, The Machine: Bride of Pin•Bot™, Ripley’s Believe It or Not®, Theatre of Magic®, and Black Hole™ are all available from within the game.
Tales of the Arabian Nights™ is fully unlocked.
This month, Funhouse is being featured and is available for unlimited play.
Each month, regular updates will add on classics like Twilight Zone®, Creature from the Black Lagoon®, Attack from Mars™, Black Knight™, Space Shuttle®, Pin•Bot™, Big Shot™, (and many others for years to come!) along with online tournaments and additional modes to challenge yourself and compete against your friends.
An optional Facebook login allows players to connect to cross-platform leaderboards. Game Center leaderboards will be added in an update.
Our goal is for the Pinball Arcade to become the most realistic and comprehensive pinball game ever created. Please support us in our efforts to preserve these tables and join the indelible part of Americana that is pinball!
This is the kind of drop in/drop out type of game I enjoy playing when I’m on the go, and in fact I already owned this before it was App of the Week. Check out Pinball Arcade now, in the App Store. Thanks to @swotam for the tip!
