Ratings and Reviews
Nice Try But Game Play Falls Flat
It’s a neat idea, I’ve seen all three movies and the synergy of hooking the game up with them could have worked, despite the fact that they put two cheesy Bmovie flicks with one actual classic. It really could have been special. But unfortunately, its not. The reason is the three games all have a couple of classic flaws in their design/setup that make them awkward and choppy, full of dead space and clunkiness. In simpler terms, they’re not fun, they have no flow, no rhythm, no bounce, no pop. The pitch is slightly too steep and there is no spring in the bumpers so once the smallish, heavy ball is launched, it clanks off a post or two, and picks up speed in a falling arc towards the gutter. After a dead flipper hit or two into a dead post or halfway up a spinner turning it like twice, it loses steam and comes knifing back at you at a wicked angle. You should get the picture. Sure some plays you manage to get a flipper on it and jam it back up there enough to get a decent score, but its not fun. No flow, no groove, no rhythm. No getting in the zone. Sorry but unless you have a completely different vision of what good Pinball is all about then I do and this sounds like fun to you, I would save your money or keep looking. I wish I would have.
The fact there are 3 games to play is bonus. I like the fact there are multiple flippers at both ends of the board. The ball moves at a very good clip and there is plenty for the ball to do so to speak. I get tired of pinball games where the ball just moves back and forth and doesn’t much at all.
Was this worth the money? I think so. The dialogue is interesting.
The reason I mainly bought this pinball was because it is the best and most responsive pinball that I have found available for the iPad. The iPad 2 delivers smooth screen action and immediate response with the flipper control. When played on my iMac 27" mid-2011 with 512MB video RAM (& standard 4 GB RAM) with two other monitors running an extended desktop, while playing television on one of the monitors in full-screen, the pinball playback is not very smooth. I am pretty sure that if I traded in my iMac and got the 27" iMac with 1 GB of video RAM that the playback would be much smoother. I don't think that adding regular RAM would fix this problem much, but this is a video RAM problem that I might be able to fix if I unplugged my two other external monitors, but I am not willing to reach up and unplug them to find out. Call me lazy. Also my current monitor resolution is set at the standard native 2560x1440 resolution which is extremely high as well which hurts my playback smoothness on everything. While this game is more fun on the iPad, it is still very fun on the home computer as well. Someone also mentioned that the movement from the camera was driving them crazy, all you have to do is to press the C key on your keyboard to change the view which can enable you to view the entire pinball table all at once without the tracking feature that is set upon startup.
