Licensing issues

Pinball Arcade is the meticulous digitization of real analog pinball machines. The licensing was provided to developers from FarSight Studios by Gottlieb, Alvin G. and Company, and Stern Pinball. In addition to a fairly straightforward development process, in parallel developers were negotiating the licensing of gaming tables. As a result, it was possible to negotiate for a certain period, and as of 2018, some types of gaming tables are not available for the game because the license was over. In total, more than sixty tables disappeared, most of which were included in paid DLCs.

Key features

The game came out on all possible platforms: including the most recent ones like Nintendo Switch, Sony PlayStation 4 and Xbox One. On the PC game is available for free, but for new tables, players have to pay. There is no plot in the game, and all the attention of the developers were focused on recreating all the smallest details of the gaming tables and the physics of the ball. The rest is a usual pinball: the player has access to the field and the ball, the main task is to beat out as many points as possible for three attempts, that is, without dropping the ball. You can catch it and toss it again with the help of two sticks that is the only player-controlled object in the entire playing field.

----------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------Game: Pinball Arcade is a Pinball Game that has Original Fidelity flipping in its Range. Here really real Flip are beautifully presented and well implemented. ----------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------Single Player: You play Here classically according to the Original Rules Pinball. You complete the Tasks on the Flip to drive up the High Score. You can change your View at any time to keep track. In Challange Mode, Player levels rise when you complete all the Tasks on the specified Tables. In Tournament Mode, you can also participate in Tournaments if you register. In Free2Play Mode you only have one Table to Choose from, the others you have to buy in Packages. For the Normal Package (where only the Tables are) you pay €27.99p (2.80€/Table) and for the Pro Packet you pay (where all the Tables and Guides are in) €36.99(3.70//Table). ----------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------Multiplayer: The Multiplayer Mode Is possible Eatery by alternating, or stop in Tournier Mode. ----------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------Graphics: The Graphics are really beautiful in DX9 Mode, in DX11 Mode the Resolution is not detected. ----------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------Music: The Music isn't the Hit, of course, but every Flipper has its Original Tune. ----------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------Control: The Control is very good with the XBOX Pad, but of course also possible with a Keyboard. ----------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------Pro/Contra: + lots of beautiful Original TICING + good Graphics (DX9) + good Control + new Tables are always added-No Reboot function-DX11 Mode Doesn't work properly-High Score Not comparable without Signing up-DLCs far too expensive----------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------Conclusion: I'm really very excited about this Game, it works Really very detailed in my Eyes. The Graphics are beautiful and the Missions are also Fun (if you find out where to hit ^ ^). Unfortunately, it annoys when you make a Mistake at the Beginning and can't just Redo, you have to click annoyingly through the Menu to restart it. The Camera can only be changed if the Ball is also in Motion, which is not bad because if you do not Flip the Ball it is not counted as wasted and gets a new one. Unfortunately, there is only one Table and the rest have to be bought dearly. It would be really nice if you could put together packages yourself. So If you still remember good old Pinball Times, you'll have a lot of Fun here. ----------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------Summarized: Single Players: 9/10 Multiplayer: 3/10 Graphic: 8/10 Music: 10/10 Control: 10/10----------------------------------------------------- -----------------------------------------------Game: 8/10

Everything is said, I have this game since the release and I had never had a pub / video, it's intrusive and annoying! Apart from the game is almost the texture of the ball is not logical is unrealistic, just for a I do not play this mobile version, the effect of light on the magace ball. Why not put the same effect on the pc / ps4 version? Last but not least, it would be necessary to have the possibility to cut the music of the menu only to have the music of the functional pinball machine.

Regularly new tables are added. No fantasy pinball, but only devices that actually exist. If you do not like advertising, you have to buy the tables. Few euros for something that really costs thousands, I think not too much. Own one yourself. For that you get real pinball feeling. Even rare devices are included. In the meantime, there are also some new ones from Stern. Keep it up. Here is someone with heart in the matter. The fact that it is not the same everywhere air is a pity. For me, there are no problems on three devices so far. IPhone SE, 5 and IPad3 top everything.

In 2011, I found the idea of ​​digital preserving pinball tables absolutely ingenious and have bought every season until today. The California company, however, has degenerated into a bad money machine, which is not only completely structureless, but in which even the support has no interest in helping the customer. That you only want to make money here, is obvious and the here already criticized advertising shows this clearly. You can buy individual tables as standard or per, table packs and seasons, all of which correlate with each other. So you have no qualms, already purchased tables twice or even three times, unless you take care of yourself. Such a structurelessness in the high prices that one pays, is absolutely not. Meanwhile, the company has successfully managed to take the pleasure of flipping. It's about time that Apple intervened here and ended these machinations. The alternative would be a complete speech of the complete application, in order to correct the structurelessness again halfway. To unlock the existing customers all tables, would actually be the least that one could expect as compensation. All a pity, because the original idea almost eight years ago was an extremely good one.
