You just need to play another game and it should push through! That happened to me on one of my scores. Just let the balls drop and it should register.

Nice score btw!

That's how I play that board! I got at least 15 multiballs on my high score. Its the best way to rack up the points really fast. I've had as much as 25 million on one multiball before!

I just got this game, and though I am not very good at pinball, I am really enjoying it!
My favorite board so far is Earth Defense, I just love hitting these little robots.
El Dorado however is very hard to look at... Everything is colored in different shades of yellow!

Just so you know, the last (and only) pinball game I actively played was Sonic Pinball Party for the GBA, so I'll take me a long time to get used to these boards.

I have sad news to report to those who are waiting for Pinball Arcade. Apparently they are having problems getting the ROM emulation right for the Eshop version so judging from their post I am suspecting it will not be out with the rest in March. I'll keep you posted if anything changes.

Oh, and if you have an Iphone, Ipad or Android, the game's already out.

Well that does suck. I hope they continue to try to make it work instead of giving up altogether!

To be honest, the only reason i even bothered dowloading Zen Pinball 3D was because I was dieing to see the S3D effect, and I've gotta say it's definitly
impressive. Especially when you zoom in with the camera by holding X while manouvering the Circle Pad around the Pinball table. It's incredible how the extremely realistic S3D depth and pop basically brings the tables to life. :D Where as '2D'(as always) makes things unrealistic, dull and flat.

As for the game itself, well I'm not exactly a huge pinball fan but for a pinball game it's quite the blast. Excalibur is definitly my favorite stage(Hated 'Earth Defense') while i absolutely love the music in El Derado...Somebody has seriously got to upload that track on YouTube. :p Anyways, it's a shame
though that it's a bit tough to play considering the 3DS's small screen isn't exactly ideal for the Pinball genre plus the ball moves a bit too fast as far as realism goes, if that's what they were going for.

Still, I can't see myself playing too much of Zenny' again considering this is pinball 'and' on a small tiny screen at that. I'm still glad i tried it out though. But i think we can all agree that this game belongs on the Big screen, in HD and with S3D especially....Sure you can nab the PS3 version, but then you'd be missing out on the most amazing part of the package...'S3D' ;)

@WaveBoy Personally I find it to work just fine on the small screen.
I enjoy playing it while sitting in bed and it's nice to just have it with me wherever I am (although it's a bit hard to play well while out and about).
I totally agree with you about the 3D effect, it makes it feel like you're actually playing on a mini pinball table rather than just a flat screen.
I'd recommend it to anyone who wants a good game to download to their 3DS.
It can get pretty addictive once you get started, and I haven't played it for a while but I've played it for about 30 hours in total and I'll definitely go back to it in the future so I feel satisfied that I'm getting value for my money.

The thing I like most about this game is that its basically four pinball tables on the go. I used to play pinball at the arcades when they used to have them (Fondly remember the LoTR and PotC tables) and I have this game to thank for getting me back into it. The physics are almost perfect and the realism of each table makes you think that it can be done in real life. As for the tables themselves, I find them all likable in their own way, Excalibur has the most missions, Eldorado has that Awesome soundtrack and Indy J vibe, Earth Defense has that 50's alien styled alien invasion plus a Giant Robot... really solid, and Shaman because it has the easiest spammable 2 million points in the game. I really can't wait for more tables to come, Looking forward to it.

Also the S3D of this game is awesome. This along with Pushmo and SM3DL are the only games that are more playable in S3D than they are in 2D.

The only pinball game I experienced on a DS was Metroid Pinball and it did it well. The experience felt like a real pinball machine with the Rumble Pack. Anyway, I mention Metroid Pinball because the screen size of the 3DS can have very little to no effect in one's enjoyment of Pinball if the game is done right.

so you liked the music to el dorado? well i do too but it really really reminds me of Cusco by Higher Octave. They made a bunch of cd's in the 80's and 90's .. you should give them a try .. here is a youtube that sounds alot like el dorado.

CUSCO - Bur Said
http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=8f5RzdCKQi8

Cusco - Montezuma
http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=ZWXJ3FfiyXM

Cusco - Unknown Paradise
http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=G8_BHJ0Phu0

Cusco - Sun of Jamaica <----- my all time favorite.. i could only find it on this Chinese video site sorry

I dunno. I have played several pinball games on handhelds (Zen, Williams, Gottlieb, Pokémon, Metroid, Pinball Fantasies, Pinball Dreams, Revenge of the Gator, etc) and I never had any problems playing those.

Anyway I have some good news. Well good for me anyway. I was having monitor troubles so I got a new monitor. It's actually a HD TV so I can watch TV if I wanted to (I don't even watch TV) plus the good news is that I hooked up my PS3 to it. I never touched my consoles for a long time because it was in the bedroom where my sister stays in 24/7 so I never could play anything (We share bedroom in case you're wondering) but now I can play it in private right on my desktop! TV has a headphone jack too so yay. That means I can now play Williams and Zen Pinball in glorious HD again. Yay! Pinbaaaaallllll. That is all.

MP did use both screens though which is more like the shape of a pinball table (well apart from the missing bit between screens :D). MP was one of my fave games on the DS. I'm really thinking of getting Zen Pinball after reading the impressions here and the numerous good reviews. Might try it out this weekend.

What's this bit for again?

After playing Zen on the PS3 again after a long while, I was surprised. The PS3 physics are much looser and the ball is much faster than in Zen 3D so it's a good thing they adjusted it because Zen 3D plays much better. No point in getting more DLC for Zen now. Am going to get them on Zen 3D instead. I may get Marvel Pinball though. Physics is better on that than Zen as well although still not as good as Zen 3D. Still very doable though. Also, the 3D actually helps make the tables clearer. I noticed this with Earth Defense. The top portion is harder to see on the PS3 than on Zen 3D with 3D on.

Naturally, once Pinball Arcade comes out, I'll probably spend all my time playing that instead. Authentic pinball simulations are more my thing.
