ABOUT THE GAME

Pinball HD - This game will change your idea of Pinball on the iPad. Each table - Wild West, The Deep, and Jungle style - are masterpieces. You'll be stunned with the level of realism. This is a REAL Pinball simulator with stunning 3D graphics both with or without 3D glasses.

IMPORTANT

Landscape mode - "full table" view
Portrait mode - "flying-table" view
In portrait mode slide up or down your both thumbs to toggle camera view from "flying-table" to "full table".

FEATURES

3 pinball tables with unique graphics, instructions, missions system, locations and characters
Landscape mode shows a full table view. The games can be played in either landscape orientation with the button to the left or right of the screen.
Portrait mode gives you a flying-table view with the camera panning and zooming over the action. This can only be played when holding the iPad with the button on the bottom. If you activate the screen orientation switch, the game only plays in portrait mode.
A wonderful 3D engine that does true justice to the graphic capabilities of the iPad.
Realistic physics.
Built in help for each table. Tap the circled "I" at the bottom right of each table to get a display detailing instructions and descriptions of the features of each table. Make sure to swipe left and right when viewing since the instructions don't fit on one screen.
Local and global high scores. Swiping right brings up a table of local high scores and further tapping brings up high scores from copies sold throughout
the world. At the end of each game you are prompted to enter your name and have your score included.
Unique soundtrack with atmospheric music, sound effects and voices.
Camera tilt brings dimensionality to the games offering a simulated 3D effect where the image changes depending upon how you tilt the iPad. Camera tilt only works in landscape mode.
Stereoscopic imaging option (requires anaglyph eyeglasses). You can choose between red-cyan, green-magenta or yellow-blue lenses.

HOW TO PLAY

When running the app, you are presented with a 3D simulated camera zoom, pan and fly-over of one of the games. Tapping on a game's fly-over screen shows/hides main menu. Tap on Play button to start game on current table.
Controls in game:
Tap ANYWHERE on the left side of screen to control the left flipper and ANYWHERE on the right side to control the right flipper.
Shake your iPad to realistically nudge the pinball table, but not too much or you'll tilt.
Tap on the "electronic caption" at the top of the screen to pause or resume your game.

Yeah, with the iPad's size, the option for full view should definitely be included. I was playing Williams Championship Pinball on my 360 pinball with my dad recently and he could only use the full view or he got queasy.

I'm buying this either way, but let us know if this is coming - shouldn't be hard to do.

btw, i'm a major pinball fan and appreciate your take on it.

It is... Landscape mode is full view, portrait mode is scolling.

Have you tried playing in landscape mode?

I agree, with the size of the iPad, it should be perfect for Pinball games.

Awesome 3 in one. Actually the reason I didn't get the games on the iPhone is cause it was only one pinball table for one app. Buying this one then...hopefully more pinball games will be added, maybe with DLC or a free update.

Buying now

It plays pretty good... but is any else getting inconsistent framerate?

Not game killing, but slight slowdowns here and there.

Instant purchase. I loved the iPhone versions and having a larger version with landscape mode is completely worth it.

I assumed that the portrait mode would be the full table, and the landscape mode would be scrolling. I don't understand why it is the other way around. Anyone know?
