Matmi to release Monster Pinball

Hello

We would like announce that our new game Monster Pinball has just been submitted to the App store.

We are well known for online games but this is our first iPhone app.

We think this is the most action packed pinball game you will have ever played! Six interconnected tables bring you into the mind boggling pinball world of the Monster Mafia characters sending you into a spin at every flick of your paddles.

This game is not a simulator nor a retro port, it's a totally original pinball extravaganza, taking the core principles of pinball to a new level. Multiple flippers, rebounds, stallballs, boosts, bonus, freeballs and tilt are all present taking the full advantage of the iPod Touch/iPhones power.

Beautifully animated and presented graphics together with wonderfully crazy sound effects. A sensational 60 frames per second physics engine make it the smoothest pinball game yet.

Features

✔ 6 fun packed tables, all interconnected, with varied and unique goals
✔ 60fps giving extra smooth gameplay
✔ Realistic Physics engine developed for this game
✔ Accelerometer tilt function
✔ Hotball feature – Score double points when active
✔ Stunning graphics and animations
✔ Unique sound effects in stereo
✔ Pause, Save and Resume
✔ Local and Online scoreboards
✔ Created specifically for the iPhone/iPod Touch
✔ Created by the wonderful minds of Matmi

We hope that Apple will approve really soon. There will be a paid version and a lite version.

Much better quality video.

Very nice graphics. I love pinball games, so this will most likely be a buy for me!

Thanks. I can't wait for Apple to approve
Which other pinball games do you like?

If the physics are good, this should be an awesome pinball game.
That's probably the most important thing in a pinball game IMO
Also like that you have the tilt function....
Looks real good. Can't wait.

Care to reveal starting price?

Thanks for your feedback. We are just discussing prices at the moment so we are not sure what price it will be. As soon as I have more information I will let you know.

Matmi are well known for online games but this is our first stab into the iPhone world. The game works amazingly well and the action is fast and furious. It is so addictive. When I post the video you will see what I mean.

We are working on several other titles at the moment and we are just about to release a flash game for Iron Maiden.

Awesome, I'll add this to my pinball games thread once it gets released. I'm interested to see how the ball physics handle in this game and definitely the online scoring is a plus.

If you need a reviewer, let me know

The physics work wonderfully. It took ages to make it fast and smooth. The tables are all connected so you can truly explore. Some tables are harder to reach than others. Each table has a unique goal. The graphics and animations are very funny.

We have played all the other pinball games and wanted to make somthing totally different and much faster.

I think you will be very happy with the results

I personally think Freeballin' was horrible because of the physics (or lack thereof). You can't have a pinball game with questionable physics.
I have to agree that the more I look at these pics, they exude speed.
I don't know if it's the color scheme, the curves, or what, but it does look like it's going to be fast.
If the framerate holds up (sounds like it should if it's 60fps), this could potentially be a fantastic game. Pretty excited, I must say.
