Atomic Pinball Collection (APC)

Hey guys!

Some exciting news! We are about to release our new pinball game (it's been submitted about a week ago), called Atomic Pinball Collection (just Atomic or APC from now on). And yes, it's now an arcade. We love Pinball Arcade, and their business model, so we are heavily inspired by it. What it means is that all tables are free to try up to a certain score. If you like it, buy it. If not, well you haven't spent any money.

So this will be a new app, under the company Color Monkey instead. We feel that the brand is stronger and hopefully will attract more sales, which in turn means more tables. The old app will cease to exist. But if you have purchased it, you will always have access to it.

Now, *some* might remember about a new version of Robobot? It was mentioned like 10 years ago. We have the new version ready, Robobot 2 I guess you can call it. Some will like it. Some purists will always prefer the original. So, since we put the reimagined Robobot in the new game, you will still have access to the old version. It also means, that if you have bought the first game, you will have to buy the new one as well. I know you will feel screwed over, sorry about that.

Atomic will feature two tables; Masks of Glory and Revenge of the Rob-o-bot. All tables are designed to be fully functional as real physical pinball tables. Enough text, here are some pictures.



MASKS OF GLORY

Set in the Mexican wrestling scene Lucha Libre, Masks of Glory is a fun and challenging table. With a Tequila Bar, insane multi-ball, chickens, Bumper Mania, piñatas, the Good-vs-Evil-meter, illegal moves, lowriders, and tacos, there is always something to do, or eat.

You are the underdog trying to beat the other contenders like the bullying Diabeto, El Ligre, Carnal Muerte, the annoying Los Hermanitos Gallitos brothers and the playboy El Fantastico with hair so greasy you can almost feel it.

But beware of El Diablo, the current reigning champion. He is big and bad, and his breath is even worse.






REVENGE OF THE ROB-O-BOT

This re-imagined version of the classic is back with more missions, updated graphics, new sounds (meet the new Betty!) and an even meaner Rob-O-Bot!

Since ROB-O-BOT has got the best physics out there and oozes some personal charm the Zen tables can only dream of, I cannot wait for this! Checking the App Store every hour!

A bit late but,whoa! Best news on TA this year for me. I still fire up Revenge of the Rob-O-Bot almost every day. I really hope it gets through before the shutdown.
Thanks Anders for bringing this out. I'll blindly buy every table that comes out.

Some beavers are hiding, some beavers are invisible, some are moving and some are just plain elusive and then there are the 'Beavers in Disguise'.

Hey guys, thanks for your support!

I'm sorry to say it won't be out this year but instead very early next year, January 9th. We really wanted to release it before Christmas but it was a rushed decision.

Sorry for letting you guys down.

I am so looking forward to this. Please charge a healthy amount for this, so that your long time fans can pay you what you deserve. If you want to widen your net, maybe put it on sale a little later, and make a play for the masses. Or include an in-app tipping feature. Or sell in-app hats, or fancy new balls, or horse armor!

Also, let's see this thing in action! Do you have any video produced yet?

You didn't let anyone down! And it's not long of a wait! What's worth having is worth waiting for!

Hey Anders,

Congrats on your new arcade! Been waiting for this for a very long time.

What about the original Rob-o-Bot? You keep talking about the purists, and how they probably will love the original more. I just want to know what you guys want to do with the original one.

What if the next version of iOS completely breaks the game like iOS 7 did with it's keyboard? Will you guys still support the old one, or just focus on this new app?

Also what is the minimum requirement for your new app? I am still stuck on 5.1.1 because of some of my favorite apps and their devs leaving them (they got the iOS 7 keyboard bug), as I am fearing you are about to do with the original Rob-o-Bot.

Playing: Revenge of the Rob-O-Bot, Gridlee (hint hint), Ski Safari, Super Hexagon, 9th Dawn, NOT Wayward Souls and Hearthstone...

We'll see how long we keep updating the old Rob-O-Bot. It depends on what kinds of problems we run into.

Umm not sure which version we require for the new app, I'll have to get back to you about that.
