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
Do you play adventure games? Do you enjoy pinball? Dutch based Paladin Studios blended the pinball flipping mechanic with an adventure game to create Momonga Pinball Adventures.
Momonga Pinball Adventures features Momo, a flexible flying squirrel to partners with a giant panda and a firefly to free his fellow squirrels from the dreaded owl bandits. In a traditional pinball game you play the level over and over again aiming to get the high score. In Momonga Pinball Adventures, you use the flippers to propel Momo the squirrel through all the different stages of each level. Sometimes you flip Momo into the air where you tilt the device to make sure he he flies into the floating gems to collect them. (more…)
