Default Zaccaria Pinball by ASK Homework (Universal)



Recent update improved the ball movement (use "simulation") and added landscape view. Very solid Pinball game.

Very solid app and great recreation of the best italian pinballs of the 80's and first 90's. The new update brings much more realism and i'm looking for the other tables to come out soon.

Very interesting. Has icade support so would like to see how that works

Edit - not bad. Tables are quite dear at 1.49 each. Had a weied bug where it kept zooming into the floor! Had to reset the table. Looking forward to the update for iPhone 4 compatability

Is this solid? Waiting for impressions on this one. Looks promising.

I like it. Wasn't familiar with Zaccaria at all and I'm enjoying a little bit of history. Upper playfield ideas are very clever.

Graphics are outstanding especially their lighting that's more sophisticated than most iOS pins. Physics are good: even after the update the bounces off rubber are a little weak, but ball movement for the most part is well done.

I really appreciate the night mode. Playing pinball in dimly lit arcades and bars is what I'm used to.

There's a lot of discussion (including one of the devs chiming in recently) in the Pinball Arcade forum

Thanks, man, for the impressions! Not very familiar with the majority of these tables, since most weren't mainstream here in the US. Been a long time pinball lover and will check out most offerings, this will probably be no different... I wonder I you can preview each table before buying them as there's so many to see there.

For me as italian, Zaccaria is a mythical brand. In the 80s, here in Italy, arcade rooms were filled with pinballs, and their tables were next to the american ones. it was a special moment.
Regarding the app, only thing I could slightly regret is the table's price, maybe a bit too high considering the entire collection is almost thirty tables.

Bought them all just like every other decent pinball table on ios. Ive tried all the tables for a bit and they're quite good, I still prefer little wing's tables and the last gladiators over any other pinball app but this is up there with pinball arcade and zen pinball for me, love ASK tables, i hope they at lest recover costs so they can deliver all of zaccarias tables.
