Got a promo from the other thread, figured I should post my impressions here...

Did a game and its pretty good. Got a bit over 2 mil on first run. I guess one drawback is that its just a single table. Also the physics seem iffy, (trapping the ball seemed hard, no death saves/nudging, AFAIK).

But looking past those things, I like the game. Can't go wrong with the graphics, very colorful. Didn't notice any lag, whether the table was a bit busy or using the flippers.

Thanks for posting your impressions! 2 more tables are coming in free updates. The next island will be larger, faster and different. One tip in case you didn't notice: if you hold the flipper down a bamboo pole will block the side drains.

Yep noticed your tip there, very useful! I realize now that death saving won't work in the game judging by the layout of the board. Glad to see a couple of tables on the way as well. Trapping the ball with the flippers seems doable but iffy. As crazy as the game seems to get, I like to aim my shots with precision sometimes.

This is a really nice pinball game, and I can pass time easily playing it. I would recommend it especially if at least one extra table pops up.
