Pinball Ride Unlimited $4.99 -> $0.99

Player impressions? Pointless in me asking because I'm buying regardless...

I've had this for a few months and like it. I still play it a couple times a week.

The physics are pretty good. There's only one table. It's not as flashy/polished as Zen, but it's fun and smooth......lots of ramps to aim for......definitely worth $0.99

original game thread

1.1 update thread

The demo version was fairly generous in how much it allowed you to do, so I'd recommend anyone interested to try it out first. I'm not sure how I feel about this table, but I definitely don't hate it, so I'll probably throw a buck its way.

*** edit ***

I like how the missions are so clearly identified, with lighted arrows and dialogues upon successful progression or completion. Had to dial down the club-like music's volume quite a bit, it was grating on my nerves something bad.

You know a table's ridiculously easy when a guy like me pumps out high score after high score. Makes any novice feel like a pro. Still a lot of fun, simply not very challenging is all. Tilt works amazingly well, but somehow doesn't feel completely realistic. It seems to give a consistent level of push every time, like an FPS's aimbot does in that kind of game. Conclusively, I end up feeling that my tilting maneuvers work better than they should.

I've only tried the lite, but it felt to me like there just wasn't enough to do, it's all ramps.

I have it since it came out. Fun casual pinball game. Not so difficult & not so frustrating/complicated as hardcore pinballs—so very good for beginners. Not overloaded or cluttered. Cool techno music. Attractive graphics. Interesting story mode. Translated into German (switch languages in option menu, switch story messages). 3.6 stars by Habakuk.

I agree with all of your points and it's definitely worth 99 cents. I find it kind of interesting that you're giving it 3.6 stars though. Are you giving personal ratings for games on a 50-point scale?

Yeah I have to turn the music completely off and then crank up my own music in the background. I find Jimi Hendrix works well for any pinball game
