From the makers of BAFTA-winning Lumino City comes INKS.
INKS updates pinball for a new generation. It combines the joy of pinball with skilful tactical challenges, and allows you to create wondrous works of art as the ball smashes around the canvas.
Blocks of colour burst like beautiful fireworks across the surface, building up in vivid layers and recording a visual history of your game as you perfect your score.
- Beautiful and elegant design
- Over 100 unique tables to play
- Perfectly balanced gameplay
- Each canvas tells the story of your game
- Share your favourite levels and high scores
If you're enjoying INKS and want to extend the experience further you can also buy Powerups - slow-mo 'Precision' aim, and the 'Stopper' to prevent you from losing the first precious Gold Ball.
“Amazing looking... vibrant, full of life. Are we excited about this.” Pocket Gamer
Inspired by artists like Miro, Matisse, Jackson Pollock and Bridget Riley, each table becomes a unique work of art, sculpted by the player as they fire an ink covered ball around the canvas.
With State of Play’s creative flare and skill at crafting beautifully elegant gameplay, INKS offers something new: art and gameplay as one, for everyone.

Not sure what I was expecting...
Now, don't get me wrong, it's a nice game but it's lacking.
Now, I may be somewhat tired of same formula where you "do this so-so times to get max points" but I also feel that this game lacks something else.
Not like I was hoping for it but the mechanics would had been amazing to see in a more pinball styled game that took you somewhere as you played, leaving lines of color and wonder as you continued through pre-rendered levels that make up each chapter. The game might had been shorter but the impact would had been much greater.
I might be envisioning something bigger or grander but that's just it, pinball has already reached such heights of expectation that I feel this game is lack luster.
Each level is either short or irritating (and poorly designed if trying to be a 1-shot challenge) that it feels like you either chose to just try and enjoy playing a level or try to get a gold star. Some are easy, some are impossible, and some just aren't worth it. What's the point of having the ball paint lines if your goal is to have few if not none to see in the end?
The game is great in terms of design but lacks what makes angry birds or cut the rope as fun as they were. Inks is bland, lacks impact, and is downright forgettable. Glad it got the good reviews but I'll be honest, I'm let down and happy I didn't have to pay for this...
Beautiful but Frustrating
Loved the style of this game and its simplistic approach to pinball. The art is especially neat. If you are a completionist, this game will start to drive you crazy with its demand for utterly precise control. Vespa #12 killed the game for me when the skillshot powerup didn’t work on the upper set of flippers.
After a while, I started wishing the game just had the usual multipliers, flashing lights, and extra balls. Again – if you want a simple, addictive game this might be the app for you. If you are a completionist like myself, the game will start to feel like a grind after the first couple sets of levels.
Buggy as all hell
Super fun game, but the flipper physics can be pretty weird and off (almost like the game can’t keep up with the ball’s position sometimes to correctly send the ball in a normal direction).
Not only that, but the game takes up a *ton* of resources on my phone and causes it to overheat (both software and hardware) and lag super bad (framerate gets cut in half). Seems like a really odd bug to have, considering it *shouldn’t* be a such a resource hog. Y’all need to figure out what’s going on before my friggin phone explodes in my hand, and I’m not even on a Samsung Note 7!
