Hit The Deck Baseball is FREE! (.99 > FREE)




Great old-school baseball/pinball machine simulator with excellent reviews and iTunes ratings, free for the first time since release in March. Lots of fun, and very faithful to the original arcade machines.

Did this already go back to $.99? Says it's a Labor Day sale so I imagine it would have already have been free.

I'll wait a bit and see if it flips back to free.

I remember my kids pumping quarters into machines just like this in Myrtle Beach trying to win tickets. They'd get a kick out of it (and so would I, of course).

I hope not, though I suppose it's possible. Great game, though, and I can confirm that if you like these old arcade machines, you'll be just as happy with it at 99 cents.

I played these growing up too and loved them, and unlike a lot of pinball-related iOS apps, the controls for this are actually better than the originals - I often swore at the machines because the bat never seemed to respond fast enough.

According to appshopper it went back up 46 minutes ago but the iPad version is still free.

(oh and sorry that looks confusing but the latest entry in the Price History is the top one - so it is indeed back to regular price)

There are some games that irritate you when they go free. This isn't one of them. Well worth the .99 price tag. It's a very faithful recreation of the old school game and highly recommended.

A perfect rendition of a classic mechanical arcade machine. If you like classic pinball machines or baseball, you can't go wrong with this. If you get it, make sure to leave a review to encourage the dev to keep making great games like this.
