Pinball Arcade




Couldn't find a thread for the Mac version.

This game needs some work. Very entertaining but occasional slowdowns really screws up my gameplay, and costs me either a quality shot or death. Surely my 2011 MBP can handle a pinball game w/o slowdowns. Graphics seem disappointing as well. Saw the 360 version on video and it looks a lot better than the Mac . Should be on par at least.

On a couple of the tables, my left flipper got stuck, no choice but to die/quit or play with an inverted flipper. Also scrolling through the options, at the bottom, the EULA comes up on my browser without selecting it (via scrolling with the arrow buttons). No way to customize the flipper controls, the shift keys are fine however.

Each of the tables I played/bought are pretty fun. Even black hole was entertaining. Also was cool to play the Harley Davison table. I played an actual table before. There are challenging basic and wizard goals to strive for too.

In short, tables are fun but annoying bugs and meh graphics kinda hurts my experience.
