Looks fun but, man, we just recently got the Avengers table and next thing you know Hulk goes rogue and now Iron Man and Captain America are fighting it out...crap, I guess it isn't easy keeping a team together.

Enh, here's about the third best thing (falling under a video or screenshots of the iOS version), here are videos of the console versions:

I can personally testify that, at least on my iPad 3 they look pretty darned identical to what was shown above.

I've been getting into ios pinball games lately, and have dled and tried both this and Pinball Arcade. It seems like a lot of people online think Zen plays better, but so far I can't understand why. To me, it seems like the ball in this lacks any kind of real weight and moves much too fast. The Pinball Arcade tables seem to feel must more realistic. Am I crazy? I'm no pinball expert, but I do remember playing lots of Funhouse as a kid.

As I stated just a few posts back, I prefer Pinball Arcade for the most part but it seems that every other update massively breaks the game (like now on some tables it will jump into multiball for no apparent reason and then, just as quirkily, not recognize that all balls have drained by remaining focused on the playfield and not sending out the next ball). Zen Pinball, on the other hand, rarely has a botched update. I also like, since they're not based on any REAL tables, they can add bizarre surreal elements like comic book characters actually jumping onto the table to grab the ball!

Yeah, I've been getting those bugs with PA as well. By the way, what is considered to be the best Zen pinball table? I've played with the free one for a bit, but it hasn't really hooked me.

I guess a better way to answer that is with another question, what do you like in your pinball tables? I know I personally like the ones with a lot of drop targets and special modes.

While I just went on about how Zen does a great job with the surreal aspects of their tables, I didn't care for that default table as it had a lot of special little puzzles and crap that were too far from traditional pinball stuff and not at all fun for me.

Just going off the top of my head, I think the Captain America one was pretty cool.

To be honest, I'm not really experienced enough with pinball to know what I like yet. In Pinball Arcade, I've spent the most time playing Arabian Nights and Cirqus Voltaire, with a decent amount of Funhouse sprinkled in from time to time.

Actually I really like the free table on ZenP, its obe of my favorites. My favorie of the bunch is Epic Quest and the new Tesla table is good too. Of the uperhero ones I prefer the Avengers one because you can select different balls representing each avenger and they have distinctive propierties.

On pinball Arcade I love Black Hole and Ripleys the most, but for the best of the best on pinball physics I would go to either Little Wings tables or Pinball Gladiators.

Favorite games: LittleWing Crystal Caliburn, Legends of Yore, Hook Worlds, Phoenix HD, DoDonPachi Resurrection, Spectral Souls, Bastion, Avadon, Dariusburst SP, Aquaria, King of Dragon Pass & Starbase Orion
