You can even tilt your device to ajust where your balls are heading.

Whether or not you owned the real deal 25 years ago, or were even born, you can pit your wits against players across the world via the Game Center leaderboards.

Best of all, its free!

Ahhhh they dont make them like this anymore !

This is a real old skool pinball-ish type of game. Back in the early 80's you had toys called 'Pocketeers' (Well in the UK at least), they were small handheld devices, didnt require batteries and had a whole range of different games. The pinball games were tiny ball bearings and you could flick one into the play area and then with your one bat try to tap the ball to get lots of points (which you would then write down as you didnt have online scores back then !).

This is a great recreation of those days, it has 3 tables, all quite different, one table has one bat on the side, another is a more 'traditional' pinball with left/right bats.

Love the way the ball bearings fall down one by one, really reminds me of those old 80's handheld games.

Free to try, 69p to get rid of the ads. Just bought it as i want the dev to get a lot of sales (which means more tables i hope !)

I only saw one at the top, paid 69p to get rid of the ad's

As its free people can try it out and play a fair bit, i didnt come across some ad obstructing the gameplay. Really enjoyed it so bought it

Are you saying it happened after you paid to remove ads?
