Pinball Dreaming: Pinball Fantasies is the official iPhone version of the classic Amiga pinball arcade simulator originally released in 1992 and is the successor to the wildly popular Pinball Dreams!
The popular opinion is that Pinball Fantasies is the best pinball game for the iPhone - some even say it's the best simulated pinball ever created.
It features the 4 original tables with remastered graphics, interactive soundtracks and yet again comes with 100% of the original addictive game play. The game can be played in both portrait and landscape orientation.
The game runs in perfect 60FPS on all devices - the way nature intended! To remove occasional hiccups, turn WLAN and mail fetch off.
Extra goodies are smashing new menu graphics and a logo remaster from the original graphics author, Markus Nyström.
On top of that you will be catered to a brand new Pinball Dreaming -homepage and a forum at www.cowboyrodeo.net/pinballdreaming/ - complete with a special VIP section for buyers of the game with free MP3 remixes from the original musician, Olof Gustafsson!
Full screen support on all devices.
Ball collisions on iOS 9 fixed.

Not even as good as the original
I played the original in the mid 90's and loved it. For a 2D game these tables still entertain and for gameplay are much better than the top-selling Wild West pinball. But a huge complaint is with the laggy flippers. There is an annoying delay before the flippers respond, even with wifi turned off. This is enough to kill the enjoyment of any pinball sim as it makes timing very difficult. I can absolutely nail the loops on a pc but with the lag on the iPhone it's just not possible, and frustration is the result. An even worse issue has become apparent after mutiple plays and comparing to the original version - the physics model has been massively over-simplified - terrible for a 386 game. Launches and kickbacks go exactly the same place time and time again. Did I mention the lag?
Well, I'll have to say right off the bat... This is sick!!! Well done on recreating probably the best pinball game off all time, in my opinion. It's unreal to be able to play this on a portable device. Well worth the money. Probably the best purchase I've made so far. Obviously there will be a few bugs etc, they'll be ironed out with future updates I'm sure. I did notice someone said "laggy flipper action" argh, I found that if you enter options mid game, this will effect the speed. Just set your options then exit, pick table and your rocking!!
Great App!! Well worth it, and it is the best pinball game in the app store.
I used to play this game as a kid and it hasn't changed a bit... which is great... as I had not played it for 10 or more years. But the version of this game I had on my PC all those years ago, it used to have an additional side to it also. It was called Pinball Mania. I would love it if you could create that one also. It had 4 tables as well and I loved those as much as fantasies. Please create this! Anyway, thanks for the great game, and may you keep inventing.
