Description

Real pinball for your Mac!

FarSight Studios, makers of the best pinball games on iOS, PS3, Xbox 360, PSP, 3DS, and Wii, introduces the Pinball Arcade!
(This game requires 3D graphics acceleration. Older Macs and Macs without 3D graphics acceleration are not recommended.)

You can now play exact recreations of the all-time greatest pinball tables from Williams®, Bally®, Stern Pinball®, and Gottlieb® together in one game. Every flipper, bumper, sound effect, and display pixel has been painstakingly emulated in astonishing detail.

The four tables included in the app are Tales of the Arabian Nights™, Ripley's Believe It or Not®, and Theatre of Magic™, and Black Hole™.

This update adds Xenon™.

Xenon™ (1979): is a classic fantasy themed table designed by Greg Kmiec. The game features an industry first female voice provided by electronic music composer, Suzanne Ciani. Her alluring Xenon girl character gives instructions during gameplay and draws players to the table during attract mode. The playfield features the Xenon transport tube that leads to an exit chamber for high scoring and a Special. This was the first Solid State table to feature Multi-Ball. 11,000 units of this table were produced.

Cirqus Voltaire™ is free to play as the Table of the Month!

Regular updates have added over 30 classics like Funhouse™, Monster Bash™, Twilight Zone®, Star Trek: The Next Generation®, Creature from the Black Lagoon®, Medieval Madness™, Attack from Mars™, Black Knight™, Space Shuttle®, Bride of Pin•Bot™, Firepower™, Cactus Canyon™, Big Shot™, and other great pinball tables as in-app purchases along with online tournaments and additional modes to challenge yourself and compete against your friends.

Our goal is for the Pinball Arcade to become the most realistic and comprehensive pinball game ever created. Please support us in our efforts to preserve these tables and join the indelible part of Americana that is pinball!

Customer Reviews

Game Unplayable in OSX Yosemite on iMac

Back in January I reported that all tables in the game have major slowdown issues on 2011 and 2012 iMacs running Mac OS X Yosemite. Farsight responded to my email and confirmed that it is a known issue and they are working on a fix. Five months later, it is still being sold as compatible with OSX 10.7 and above. I tested this latest release, and no luck.
