This one looks very interesting, Gabrien... a pinball table complete with detailed lore, and quests? I think I'm sold already...

As great as Tristan was by them for iOS, I bet this will be real good too !

Looking forward to it !

Like others I have been hooked on their pinball games since the 90's

Default Game Impressions

For my money, LittleWing have the best approach to video game pinball. It's realistic precisely where it counts, yet at the same time remains completely straight forward, approachable, and nonsense-free. Their games succeed both as a sim, as well as a video game; seamlessly and without conflict.

This release is no different. While for me personally, it won't ever scratch the itch that Tristan does, this is purely because of my distinct preference for retro pinball tables and all the charm of their little dings, and tinkles, and flip-card scoreboards. In every other sense this release is just as excellent as Tristan was, and anyone with an interest in pinball on iOS should check it out.

Absolutely adore Pinball Tristan, so this a no-brainer.

Default guaranteed to be awesome.

Any LITTLEWING pinball is a no-brainer purchase for me, they are the king (and queen) of pinball physics. No other engine comes close for me. I just wish they were more than basically a two-person dev team, as their Mac pinballs through the years have typically gone *years* between releases. It's neat that they're releasing their Mac pinballs as iOS pinballs with super-updated graphics one by one... truly a great dev team, can't wait for more!! If you like this and TRISTAN, you'll love their PC/MAC pinballs for sure! To me they're sort of like the CAVE of pinballs, they've honed their craft to perfection.
