@Spoony_Tech, it's not one of my favorites (a bit too busy for my tastes), but I won't deny it has a really cool theme.

Honestly only played it because it's one of this month's free tables, and just happened to have an unbelievably good run (managed to become champion, with a score of 197 Million or so). Completely caught myself by suprise, lol.

Just a heads up all Williams and Bally tables will be removed on June 30th from The Pinball Arcade due to the licensing agreement ending. Which means after June 30th you won't be able to buy any of the Williams and Bally tables. However if you buy them before hand, you will still have them and be able to play them after June 30th..

So buy them now if you want to have them.

I'm pretty much covered already. I have all seasons on PC, every pin but 3 on the Vita, and I'm buying my favourite Williams-Bally pins on mobile to play 'on the go.' I have only a couple left to go. It's still pretty sad though. TPA is going to be an empty shell when July comes. Majority of the pins, most of them great ones, in TPA are W-B.

As much as I'm mostly a Zen fan I can appreciate quite a few of the tables on TPA and Stern. I should really just get them all even if I'm not playing them now as they're enjoyable for sure.

Just an FYI. Today is the last day to buy any Bally/Williams from The Pinball Arcade before they are no longer able to be purchase due to rights. Once you buy them you will be able to download them just no new purchases.

Regarding The Pinball Arcade situation...I've spent some money. Almost as much as on the Wii Shop.

Please, no more digital shop closures for the rest of the year, ok? My wallet's on the brink of death, lol!

looks like they released Zaccaria Pinball early, it's on the eShop now. Comes with 1 free table with two variations on it (original and retro). So far so good, very polished and a lot of options. Every table has a trial as well. You can even earn extra tables by getting achievements, which are saved even from the trial tables you earned them on.

I still find the news shocking as I never would have thought Zen would get the rights. They never digitized real pins before. That's good for those people who never managed to buy the pins they wanted in TPA before the contract ended. I won't be buying anything that's already in TPA, but I will get pins that TPA doesn't have, assuming Zen will actually digitize those. W/B is my fave pin manufacturer. I hope Radical! sees the light of day this time around.

Gameplay footage. Looks to be a bit faster to me and seems like a mix of Zen physics and TPA's.

For anyone who's interested, Zen's W/B tables are censored, which is a big shame as Farsight never censored their pins. The good news is that you can toggle off/on Family Mode so you can see the DMDs uncensored, but the artwork on the pins will remain censored. The only pin I know of that got censored artwork is Fish Tales, but future pins will probably be censored too. Medieval Madness' DMDs are censored.

Censorship sucks. It gives me less incentive to buy pins from Zen if they're censored. hugs uncensored digitized pins on TPA

Good to know they won't be censored everywhere. It's a good listen if you have the time.

I liked pinball machines when I was little. Whenever I was in a restaurant I preferred them over video game arcade cabinets, believe it or not. And I regret it.

But I suck at pinball. And after downloading Pinball FX3 for free, I haven't bought tables because I don't know in which eShop are they the cheapest -it can't be checked in any web, unlike games- and also because the initial free tables show me that I'm too bad at this at least in video game form, with Switch's screen, which for things like this it's certainly too little.

Apart from that, and I understand it's not an issue for pinball fans, the more complex and spectacular is the table, the more I'm lost and don't know what's happening and just try to avoid the ball falling in the hole, which after a while gets old it you just do that. I don't know if anyone relates.

@Moroboshi876 Zen Pinball can be jarring at first with so many things to do but you get use to it. Still even after well over 1000 hours I dread starting a new table because I have to learn what needs to be done. Usually what you want to do is hit flashing lanes. For most tables that's all there is to it. When you start a mission nearly all the tables will flash at where you need to hit the ball.

If the Zen made tables are too complicated for you then you should check out the New Williams and Bally tables in 8 days. Those are based off of real tables and are a lot less complicated. Some are pretty straight forward and simple.
