Almost Pinball from Oakland, CA based Red Adept is almost perfect played on the iPhone and iPad. Why do they call it Almost Pinball? They combined elements of pinball – the flippers, a ball, bumpers and obstacles with a physics/puzzle mechanic to make a really great pinball game.
Yes there’s a ball but the ball’s movement resembles a hard rubber ball like a lacrosse ball rather than a steel pinball. Its much harder to control the ball with the flippers as you would with a steel ball in a traditional pinball game. The Red Adept team lined in the inside walls of each play area with a soft bumper which can accelerate the ball’s velocity.
The play area resembles a physics action puzzler rather traditional pinball game with lights whistles and bells. It doesn’t matter – the game requires smart thinking in addition to the quick reflexes one needs to get a high score. Yes there’s multi-flippers and multi balls and a lot of fun. Almost Pinball blows away Zen Pinball. Almost Pinball costs $0.99
