App description: Ballywoo recreates one of the first commercial, mass-produced pinball machines ever made. That machine launched the long-lasting career of Ray Moloney's Bally Manufacturing Corporation.

Move back to the year 1932 and feel the history.

(This is a more evolved version than the one we've released for iPad.)

Available on the AppStore now!

Looks like good old-timey pinball goodness.

Any video of the game in motion?

How's the plunger(stick? ) action?

Hi John,

Thanks for your message! I replied to your e-mail!

There have been some issues with 2nd generation iPods with iOS 4.0, but in the other hand I've read lots of crashing reports with other apps too when using 2nd generation iPod & iOS 4.0. I would be very interested to know if there's still problems with iOS version 4.1 which should be more stable.

Unfortunately we haven't recorded a video yet, but one is coming for sure.

The game works as follows: Touch the first ball and drag your finger lengthways which adds the force of the launch. After you have determined the force you want, lift your finger. It's more like some kind of simulation of a plunger than a stick.

Did the crash happen to you or were you refering to the previous post?

It's working well on my iPod touch 4 with iOS 4.1.
