App description: - ITS TIME TO ROLL -

Momonga is a unique pinball game, where you bounce through different worlds. On the way, you team up with friends to defeat enemies and conquer bossfights. A little flying squirrel takes on the forces of evil - join Momo, Panda and Fry in a quest to save the momongas from the claws of the evil owls.

I thought I was going to be turned off by the cloying sweetness of Momonga's visuals, but the level of challenge hooked me.

It's one of those rare games that makes you excited just to see what's around the next corner. Paladin Studios obviously put a lot of heart into making this gorgeous little masterpiece.

Momonga's Pinball Adventures is already a winner. In part for its impressive look, certainly, but the charm and challenge of the game are a big part of what makes it so loveable.

Momonga transforms pinball into an entirely new gaming experience that will appeal to veterans and newcomers alike.

Momonga Pinball Adventures stands out as one of my favorite pinball games to ever grace the AppStore. ---TheAppShack.com (9/10)

- NOT YOUR AVERAGE PINBALL -

Momonga Pinball Adventures is a different kind of pinball. Instead of regular cabinets, you bounce a flying squirrel through different levels. Enemies, boss fights, exploration - it has all the ingredients of good old action-adventure games, but with flippers :)

- AN EPIC ADVENTURE -

Join Momo in the first episode of an epic adventure to save his tribe. One day, evil owls turned the momonga village to ashes. They took the momonga tribe and vanished. Only one momonga got away: young Momo barely survived the attack, and was left for dead. After the raid, Momo was found by a panda in the outskirts of the village. A scar went deep from the top of his head to the tip of his tail. The panda brought him to his sanctuary to heal his wounds.

This is where the story begins. Help Momo face the owls and free his tribe. Only a little flying squirrel can face the forces of evil.

- STORYLINE -

On the continent Aya, animals have lived peacefully since the Great War. The Guardian Council has been formed to protect the Sources, and the world from another War. The Sources are five places of great power, and bring balance to the world when they are in the right hands. Ever since the start of the Great War, the Sources have been contested by the Shadow Species, who claimed the Sources for themselves.

The momongas are a small and peaceful tribe of flying squirrels, living on a group of small islands on the river Yana. They make their homes in the hollow trunks of giant Sequoia trees, and generally get out of the way of trouble.

One day, the village was raided by a group of owl bandits. Their leader, General Kuton, is a renegade general, brilliant in his old days, but torn apart by the loss of his son to the Ravens. The owls took every momonga and disappeared. All except one - the young Momo barely escaped Kutons claws. He was saved by Panda, one of the nomadic pandas that roam the continents. He healed Momo and took to a sanctuary up in the mountains.

Our adventure begins here - with a little flying squirrel and a lonely panda. Will they be able to stop the forces of evil?

Can't get enough. Just left a 5 star review on the App Store. This game is magic.

So glad I saw this thread, couldn't agree more with everyone else. This game is a winner! Beautiful presentation and smooth gameplay.
Also, I happen to like the current voiceovers, and prefer them to English ones. It adds charm!

Thanks everyone! It's heartwarming and overwhelming to read all your awesome comments.

We're pretty psyched out over here at the Paladin office, we hoped that people would like it, but never expected this crazy amount of positive reactions. We even got a bottle of champagne from one of our neighbours, because Momonga made his wife *not* play WoW for an evening. Changing the world one download at a time

Yes, I have an iPhone 5 and it's my favorite device. You have a bit more room for your thumbs - they don't block the view.

Keep on rollin'!

Just completed the supercombo challenge on the City of Xio level, that was definitely a 'punch the air' moment.

The quality of this game is just.. Well it reminds me of why I fell in love with video games as a kid. I play Momonga and it feels like a game made by Nintendo. Only a handful of games on iOS have had that effect on me, and now Momonga is definitely one of them.

An incredible achievement from a small indie team, you should be very proud.

To balance the amount of undiscerning praise showered over this game, here's my grumpy remark:
The one(s) who put the stupid "tilt-a-thon" flying squirrel minigame in my pinball game should be (insert favorite torture method here).

No, really, having to play it over and over in order to complete the challenges is downright infuriating (yes, I'm a completist). I bought it because I thought it's a pinball game, and I HATE tilt controls. At least let me use the flippers control instead of tilting (have you guys ever tried playing this on an iPad? not the smoothest control experience).
[rant off]

Overall, a wonderful game. I wanted a pinball game with a story and achievements since forever (as opposed to the standard, never-ending arcade type) and you deliver in spades. It's charming, beautiful, funny and endearing. My only gripe (except the one detailed above) is that I'll probably finish it tomorrow

There's tilt controls?

LOL, yes, there are sequences in-between the "pinball table" areas where you pilot the ball (which is a flying squirrel) by tilting the device. It's present in level 2, not sure if there are any more sequences like this later.

Thanks for you honest feedback! You can send any tortures directly to our HQ for best results.

Ok so here's a tip for if you don't like the flying parts. The flying is quite "simple" in the sense that you don't die by hitting the side walls. You only die if you hit something full frontal. In the "Fly Momo Fly" level that practically means you can make yourself a cup of coffee when you start flying. In "City of Xio", you have to be a bit more careful, but I think you'll be able to go through it without tilting (heh, see what I did there?) if you position Momo carefuly.

The rest of the levels don't have any flying, so hopefully that will be more to your liking

Cheers!

"you have to be a bit more careful, but I think you'll be able to go through it without tilting"
Right, but if I want to complete all the challenges I need to do a LOT of flying ("grab all the stars" and "navigate through the stars without collecting any" are the culprits here).

Thanks for the fast answer, and thanks again for the game! I hope it'll sell at least as much as Angry Birds
