Pinball Dreams HD
By Cowboy Rodeo
This app is only available on the App Store for iOS devices.
One more time, the veritable blast from the past, a legend amongst pinballs is back!
This time we are giving you a HD-3D version with all the 4 original tables and it works on pretty much everything starting from iPhone 3GS. Smooth as silk, 60FPS all the way!
20 years ago Pinball Dreams almost single-handedly created the pinball simulator genre. 20 years later it is still one of the best pinball simulations ever created with addictive tables giving hours and hours of challenge and fun!
Our original Pinball Dreams iOS port was chosen by the Edge Magazine as one of the best 50 iPhone games.
The game features Game Center leaderboards and anti-aliasing on iPad2.
What's New in Version 1.2
- slightly improved touch response
- 2 new camera modes (static and classic 2D)
- fixed a bug when changing orientation in GC
- other bug fixes and graphical improvements
Video game pinball the way it ought to be done!
I remember playing the original version on the IBM PC back some years ago. The game has translated very well, and the 3D effects are a nice touch. Though the physics aren't real as compared to real pinball machines, for a video game they're very well done. In translating the game into 3D, the physics of the original video game are completely unchanged, which is a definite plus. For the price, you get four tables with a wide variety of themes to play. That's hard to beat!
I can't recommend this game enough if you're a fan of video pinball games. Great pinball sim and resonates with retro gaming enthusiasts alike!

Nice graphics and sounds but the controls are really clunky and not very touch sensitive even with the new update. It's hard to even get the ball moving no matter how far you pull the spring back! It's very frustrating to play. I know the last update was supposed to fix the touch sensitivity but its still nearly impossible to get the ball moving!
I would suggest to anyone thinking of getting this that you try one if the lite versions first so you don't suffer buyers remorse like I did. I will probably end up deleting this one and I have almost all the pinball games for iPhone!
Yes, there are more realistic pinball simulators out there. But Pinball Dreams is the game I'm drawn back to more often. Even though the ball behaves more like a superball than a pinball, the table designs are fun. The rule sets are simple, which helps given the unique physics. But I think what I like most about the tables is Gustafsson's music. Sometimes I'll just let the intro screens run, close my eyes and listen to it. There aren't many other pinball games that have such good soundtracks.
