I'm Already Freeballin': Now Pinball Dreams or Wild West??

Freeballin' is such a great game that it has put me in the mood to add to my collection of pinball tables!
I can't decide between Pinball Dreams or Wild West, so I thought I'd ask other pinballers.
Which is the better deal in terms of value and enjoyment?
Pinball Dreams for $6, or Wild West for $3?

Second for Pinball Dreams. Fun tables, classic game, and well done.

My ranking is

1) Wild West Pinball
2) Pinball Dreaming
3) Freeballin
4) Zen Pinball Inferno
5) Zen Pinball Rollercoaster

Wild West easily by a wide margin has best physics and probably most potential if they add more tables and adjust a few things. I have most fun with Wild West Pinball thus #1 ranking. Having said that I don't recommend any pinball games on iphone currently. Look how long it took for iphone to get a decent car racing game almost 10 months. Looks like it'll be a few more months for a decent pinball game who knows.

Sounds like a good lineup, I don't have all of them, but I would imagine my order would look like that as well... I have been waiting on a price drop on the Zen tables for months now....

Pinball Dreams is still the best.
Way better than Freeballin' (TOO EMPTY and boring).

Have you tried Wild West yet? I have not tried Pinball Dreams, but WW is MUCH better than the Zen table I have (Rollercoaster).

I am extremely impressed with WW...it has some innovative (for an iDevice pinball game) use of camera...excellent physics...excellent graphics...and (best of all) EXCELLENT table design. Not just the sim, but the table they chose to simulate...really a great, old-school table with GREAT game play.

Even the way the player puts the ball in play is far better than what I've seen elsewhere.

Big thumbs up for Wild West Pinball. I highly recommend it.
