What's New in Version 1.0.2
Just Wonderful, Perfect in its kind.
Thank you Developers for creating such a magnificent piece of art as a long-loved game of my childhood, Pinball. I barely write any reviews for any apps and if I do, I do it with all care. This time, I can't tell you a single negative parameter about this app. The atmosphere is a quite perfect isolation in its own. You feel you're trapped in a machine and you've got to move to get out. It reminds me of one of my favorite games ever, Portal series by Valve. The music is another masterpiece, perfectly matching all the environments through this game. Sound effects are just right and controls could not have been more simple. I particularly love the mini-games. They give me a sense of nostalgia and a feeling that I've got to thank the Pinball machine for providing me the chance of adding time to my experience. I want to thank the Developers, especially for awakening the long-gone sense in me that I used to have when I played Doom, Tomb Raider, and Mortal Kombat in about 1995, a sense of pure happiness and passion to experience something unique at the time. Then I have to thank Apple for bringing this game up on Featured section of the App Store, after a long time seeing not more than a few good games but some buggy, seen-everywhere, unbelievably poor games and apps on that section.
Thank you Developers, and I wish you can add more levels to this brilliant Pinball wizard game! :)
Where can I get the soundtrack?
First of all, I need to get this out of the way-- nowhere in the description does it say "endless." The more appropriate descriptor would be "progressive," especially since the levels are static (as opposed to randomly generated). You may even notice in overtime that you basically start back at 1, just with no way of putting time back into your pool.
That's it for complaints, and not much for cons at that. The last time I saw a progressive pinball game was the first Nintendo, which just shows my age. This game is so awesome, I love how there's legitimately different mechanics and hazards you have to interact with to pass each level. I had absolutely zero issues with the physics-- they were predictable and imo that's good for this type of game. If you want realistic physics, Pinball HD is the gold standard. (Optionally devs, you could add a hard mode with upgraded physics, and I would play forever.)
Neon glowy lights are complimented by mellow electronic beats, like Depeche Mode got a female vocalist and made a pinball baby. (And did I mention I want the soundtrack?) Seriously, I will pause mid-level just to get my ears filled with the current track, especially before picking up power-ups that stretch the notes to comical extremes.
Most pinball satisfaction
Polished and nearly perfect pinball gratification. Most pinball simulators lose the fun of real pinball because you're bumping around a small playing field. PinOut expands the experience by progressing from table to table. There is no scoring, the bumpers just bounce you around. It's all a matter of how far you can get in the alloyed time, and picking up time bonuses. My only complaint is that it really relays on holding the ball with your flipper and precision aiming to up ramps. This is satisfying, but conversely you don't get the kinetic excitement of just pounding away at the flippers, which in PinOut seldom gets you anywhere. The soundtrack is very reminiscent of Stranger Things crossed with Ladytron. I liked that the lyrics seemed to subtly relate to the game itself. "Just enough to keep on trying, not enough to keep from dying". Physics seem spot on to me.
