Paid $70+, so why am I seeing ads?

Crabcakes

Update: I hadn’t played in a while but I got a new phone and I’m not sure why I’m seeing ads all the time now, even when playing tables I paid for, but it’s obnoxious and needs to stop. I spent obscene amounts on single tables ($4.99 or more a pop!) and ads should only be shown if you’re playing free tables if they must be shown at all. I’m docking this app three stars until this is resolved. It was formerly five stars but I’ve already had multiple ads blast out and nearly wake my fiancé in the past 20 minutes at 2:15am. Not cool, guys.

Old review - Indispensable: If you love pinball, you should already own this. All the tables you remember playing, more on the way and fun gameplay make this app completely indispensable. In future updates, I would truly love to see more tables from the 70s and prior, for instance Spirit of '76, Slick Chick and Humpty Dumpty by Gottlieb. In the meantime, there are plenty of tables to feed your pinball addiction. Of course, I'd prefer it if some of them were cheaper because it's really hard for me to want to drop $5 on one table (select tables, not all of them cost that much), but I rationalize and think to myself that I could easily spend as much playing on one of them at an arcade. Eh... y'know? All in all, I think you shouldn't hesitate in grabbing this app. It's provided me with countless hours of fun and the developers are clearly dedicated to making the experience the best they possibly can. Great job!

A question...

Add-led

First, I just want to say that this is an amazing app! The pinball recreations take me back to my youth, and the physics are incredible. I look forward each month to what they will offer next.

However, recently, when I finish a game on any table, it automatically kicks me completely out of the app, and I have to reload to the opening in order to play another game. Perhaps it's a sign of the times that I quickly run out of patience, but I do nonetheless. I don't know if this is a temporary glitch, or if maybe I need to do an update for my iPhone, but it has caused me to use it less. Any suggestions?

Edit: sept 17,

I've been using this app for a long time now, and while I do still enjoy playing the tables, I am also being kicked out of the app every time I finish a game. Completely back to my iPhone menu. In addition, it now does not save any of my scores. I have not been seeing any ads for my free tables, which I would trade for being able to stay in the app and save my scores. I tried to delete and reload the app, but I can't get it out of the cloud, so when I reload, it comes back to the same old thing. I figured that I would wait and spend some money on this after I get an iPad, but the issues with the free game are making me rethink that. I think the next time I decide to delete it, I just won't reload at all.

Do you love pinball?

If you love playing pinball, this game is a must purchase. The tables are recreations of real pinball tables. It’s aesthetically pleasing and fun to play. I’ve read some unreasonable criticism of the app regarding the price of the tables. All I can say is they must not love pinball very much. $5 seems complete reasonable to me to play a purchased table that is on perpetual free play. And, anyone that knows anything about game development realizes the work that goes into it. One other criticism involved not seeing a favorite pinball table in Pinball Arcade’s offerings. Hey, some of my favorites aren’t there either- yet. I highly recommend this app. My suggestions to the developer for the developer would be Williams’ Flash and some iconic games like Captain Fantastic or Bally’s KISS from the 1970s.
