Ha ha very funny made me laugh out loud or LOL.

About the game it's great fun, an easy reccomondation, it's just great when you make a one splash hit and all the paint burst out of place, great feeling.

Game Impressions

This is probably the most interesting game to be released this week. If you're on the fence about it, the basic gist is that it's a level-based pinball game with levels that are cleared by hitting each of the colored areas which you can see in the game's screenshots. What's neat about doing this, is every time you hit one, you leave an ink splat behind, which your ball then tracks through. The ink splats seem to be different depending on which angle you hit them from, so theoretically, the end result of each level should be unique.

It's a clever concept for a pinball game, and it looks really cool. If you hate pinball, you'll also probably not like this too much, but it's another neat game on the App Store that does a good job of straddling the line between something that feels like a fun video game and something that feels kind of like an "art game." Another game that did this real well was Monument Valley, which INKS has a somewhat similar vibe to although in a totally different way.

All the talking about the game made it jump straight to number one in the hot new games section and it's well deserved.

Nicely done.

It's a lot of fun - fairly simplistic at first but gets trickier as you go on, I'm very much enjoying it.

It's got pinball and pretty colours what more do you want?

Walt! Why does it say there are 100+ levels but not mention that some of them are IAP? Hahaha just kidding, some people lol. This is getting me through the day knowing I have this cool looking game to unwind with after work. For anyone that has played both, how does this compare to Zendots? Which is my usual go to pinball title on IOS

As a huge pinball nerd I jumped on this immediately. I love the concept, the app is gorgeous. That said, I don't know if I'm feeling these physics. Zen and Color Monkey's physics aren't realistic, but the feel good. These ball physics feel slow and weightless. I wish it felt snappier, heavier, bouncier.
