Pure Pinball 

 

Zen Studios has made the video game industry believe in pinball games again. So it should come as no surprise that more companies are entering, or coming back to the video game pinball genre. Take Pure Pinball for example. This franchise was gone for ten years. It is back and on the iOS platform.

At one time video games and pinball machines were at odds. They battled it out in the arcade. The home consoles wound up killing off the pinball machines. Yes I know there is a small population that still plays on pinball machines. Nothing like the video game player population.

Pure Pinball is an app on the iPhone, iPod Touch, and iPad. Also affectionately known as iOS. There is one table in this app at this time. There are supposed to be additional tables added in the future. I hope the additional tables will come with the price of admission, and not require an in-app purchase.

The table currently in Pure Pinball is a dinosaur table. Players are avoiding dinosaurs that want to hunt them down. I guess this is where Apple finds the violent content. Their rating system misses so many problems in other apps, that it seems strange they freak out over a pinball game.

The table in Pure Pinball looks great. The art work is fantastic. The ball animates in a realistic fashion. The voice is very distinctive in the things the player triggers on the table. The controls are simple to learn and play with. Tap and drag to launch the ball. Tap on the right for the right flippers, and on the left side of the screen for the left flippers.

Pure Pinball is a rock solid pinball app on the iOS platform. I hope to see this franchise continue to expand and grow. Pure Pinball would be great on the Nintendo 3DS, and Playstation Vita. Nintendo and Sony should send me a consultant check for pointing this out.
