Oh, this looks just great. Portrait and Landscape modes? This is perfect for the iDevice.

Steep price though, going to check out the videos first. ^ ^

No company dev name mentioned on the AppStore?

I hope with all these Amiga 'ports' (Rick Rocketson, Nickyboom, etc) devs are getting appropriate licensing if they don't own the original IP. Digital Illusions Creative Entertainment who did the 1992 Amiga version were bought out by EA in 1994 if I recall correctly.

Looks the goods though... if you're into pinball titles you may want to snap this up quickly despite of the price (it is four tables after all, not too bad) incase EA decide to complain.

i knew i was missing something on my iphone. I totally forgot about pinball games. I love 'em. I wish they could be the same as Microsoft 3D pinball - Space cadet. I like the table, music etc. I don't really like half-pinball table on the screen. But, I might just get this one. Any lite version? hehehe..

For a game as aged as this one on a device this advanced, I'd wager the frame rate will be spectacular.

Price is bound to drop though, if it doesn't get pulled as some are speculating.

Gee, I wish someone would hurry up and buy it & write a review so we can all get it before it gets pulled!
We need a guinea pig. Hmmmm...how 'bout you, salsamd, since you started the thread?

I'd really like to see the old "3-D Ultra Pinball" come to the the iPhone--that's a great game....
