I have to admit, I’m I sucker for pinball games. Today I found an excellent free app for iPad called Zen Pinball. It lets you play one table for free.
While Zen Pinball only gives you one free table – it’s an awesome table. The Sorcerer’s Lair is a beautiful table that brings hours of enjoyment.
You can play in either portrait or landscape mode. Tap the camera button to switch between eight different camera angles of the table.
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.
Sign up for OpenFeint to share your Achievements and high scores online with your friends.
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.
If you’re a fan of pinball games, check this one out. The graphics, sound and gameplay are top notch. The Sorcerer’s Lair table is completely free and a blast to play.
While we’re on the subject of pinball games, if you remember classic 3D Space Cadet pinball game on old versions of Windows, you can add it to Windows 7 too. Have fun!
