You should check out a game called peggle. It's a fun little pinball type game that has a nice little twist to it.

Worth much more. The single most amazing pinball table for iOS. It's THAT good. Really. I haven't been playing anything else, for days.

I agree with Athos as well. There are TONS of tables in the store, some good, others not so much, but his suggestions are as good a start as any.

Zen pinball probably epitomizes arcade style, or fantasy style games. I personally think that Last Gladiators is probably the best sim (even though the flippers are impossibly long sometimes. But the feel is closest to what I remember from the days of actual tables. That said, all have their good points and bad, and like any genre, you have to try a number to figure what you like.

My current favorites are many of the zen tables, pinball dreams, war pinball (gameprom) collection, and the new Robot is pretty good (I think the flippers are a little "soft" for my taste). Have fun exploring. It's been a passion of mine since I joined TA!

I have some new favorite pinballs thanks to this thread. Zen Pinball and Last Gladiator are both very good.

Would love to see an update to the Gladiator tables. Gameplay is OUTSTANDING, presentation not so much anymore. Sadly.

It looks pretty good on my ipad 2 in portrait mode. Actually both of those games are better on the ipad. Zen pinball still lags on my ipad touch and the graphics are almost too small to see.

Yes, an important aspect of the pinball tables that is not always brought up is what device you are using. I only use my iPad for pinball, I find all the screens too small for me on iPhone, but many people don't mind.

And there are still people out there not interested in owning an iPad.

Pin tiki ball is awesome. Sure it isn't a tradition sort of pinball game, but I find traditional pinball games boring on iPad, though I love physical pinball machines.. Pin tiki ball is like a modernised pinball for touch devices. It has several types of balls, like if you hit a banana tree, a banana falls out which you can hit for more points, same with watermelons and coconuts, you smash them with the flipper while your main ball is still in play, you also can get a second lava ball to play 2 balls at once for extra challenge, so many things can happen.. Like if you hit a certain spot while the sundial is on diamond mode, a diamond falls out onto the table and you have to hit it with a flipper or even more points if you hit it with the ball.. The graphics are amazing, I still haven't discovered even instance in the game and I love it!

I can only speak for myself, but most definitely.
