Review: ZEN Pinball

ZEN Pinball is the only pinball game on the App Store, but whether it is fun or not is still fro you to decide. Read the full review for more details.  The game currently sells in the app store for $4.99.

Presentation

The menu is this game is quite confusing if you ask me. It’s crowded with odd-looking buttons that leave you scratching your head. Not only that, but the menu also looks very ugly! These two elements create an overall bad game presentation.

Score: 5

Graphics

ZEN Pinball’s graphics are actually pretty nice, considering how detailed the game boards are. Also, you should take note that this is one of the first iPhone titles that were released in July, and even since than developers have found ways to improve, so I have to say that this game’s visuals are very good.

Score: 8

Sound

Pinball sounds are all I really want from a virtual pinball game. Usually having game sounds can just annoy you and turn off your personal songs, but this game has nice simple sounds, and also offers the option to enables you to play your own music.

Score: 9

Gameplay

When it comes to gameplay, ZEN Pinball falls a little short. You tap either side of the screen to use the two flippers which is an amazing control scheme, but with such a limit on what you can do, you’re going to feel pretty bored of the game pretty quickly.

Score: 6

Value

$4.99 does seem very expensive for a simple pinball game, but considering this is the only pinball simulator, they can really charge what they want. The game has been out for about 2 months now, so unless you really want this game right now, I suggest you wait for price cut.

Score: 6.5

Lasting Appeal

This game really didn’t keep me entertained for too long. After ten minutes of playing I was finished with the game. But that’s just me, you may play the game for months. It’s just that in my opinion, you there are much better ways to spend your money whether it’s on another app or something completely different.

Score: 5

Overall

Overall…. this game is fine. Not great, not horrible, it’s alright. If you have an extra five dollar laying around that you have nothing else to do with, I suggest you look into some other games before going for this one.
