The pinball everyone has been waiting for and one full year after the HD version of the Dreams - finally here!
This time we are giving you something even better than the Dreams HD version with stellar graphics and the same fantastic gameplay with the 4 tables you want - and it works on pretty much everything starting from iPhone 3GS. Smooth as silk, 60FPS all the way!
20 years ago Pinball Dreams and Pinball Fantasies almost single-handedly created the pinball simulator genre. 20 years later they are still among the best pinball simulations ever created with addictive tables giving hours and hours of challenge and fun!
The game features Game Center leaderboards and anti-aliasing on iPad2.
What's New in Version 1.1.1
Black screen bug fixed
Needs a polish
I've been waiting a long time for this and it's a fantastic update to one of my favourite games ever, however it does need a polish in a few areas.
There are some music, graphics and speed issues with the score bar (which also looks a little odd as it doesn't fill the width of the table) and using an iPad in landscape is a bit pointless as the table doesn't fill the screen. I think there should be a classic AGA graphics mode and I have also had some sticky flippers occasionally. As other people have said, some of the colours look a little dark with overly thick outlines in places, but it still looks great.
A great game, but a small update would give it 5 stars.
As someone who played the Amiga original to death, this is a perfect 3D representation. It's EXACTLY like you remember. Same music, same physics, but much better graphics. I LOVE this game!
The only quirk is the way Tilt is implemented. In the hundreds of games I've played, I've not once been able to save a ball that dropped down the sidelanes. In the Amiga version I could do this about 25% of the time. When everything else has been so faithful, it's an odd decision to change this by the developers.
Still a great game and great conversion, though. It's a dream come true for me. Thanks, guys!
Not as good as the original
Pinball Dreams HD was beautiful to look at and a joy to play, so I had high hopes for the HD version of Pinball Fantasies. Unfortunately the developers haven't done such a good job this time around. The lights on the Speed Devils table don't work properly, and there are also bugs on Stones and Bones. The collision detection is off on the bottom flippers, making it less playable than the original 2D version, and the graphics are fuzzy and not faithful to the original table illustrations. Apart from that it's pretty good, just could have been a lot better.
