Review: ZEN Pinball

Posted by on October 19th, 2009 | 1 Comment | Tags: ,

Developer: ZEN Studios
Release Date: May 13th, 2009
Price: $9.99
Players: 1-4 (local and online)
Demo: Yes

What I liked:

  • The variety of the tables (Each table feels unique, no rehashing)
  • The sounds (Music, sound effects, and ambient noise are all great)
  • Local co-op (Hot seat pinball can be very competitive)
  • The physics (It acts like you would expect a pinball game to act)
  • The slick presentation (Menus are lights on the table and graphics are top notch)

What I disliked:

  • The viewing angle (I wish there was one that was more top down)
  • The arcade effects (Thankfully you can toggle them off)
  • The online multiplayer (It is fun, but points race is the only mode)
  • The view is not saved when you quit the game.

Even if you aren’t a fan of pinball, ZEN Pinball is still a blast. The slow-motion mode and adjustable difficulty make this playable for anyone. One of the best virtual pinball games I have ever played.
