Is It Any Good?

This fantastic and unique take on a very familiar game is just as good for a 30-second diversion as it is for an hour of meditative flow. Even folks who have never played or enjoyed pinball before will find INKS. irresistible and might boost their skills from button masher to pinball wizard overnight. It's hard not to love the simple soothing sounds of the ball rolling across the board, the mesmerizing paths it draws as it moves, and the satisfying explosions of color and music it produces on contact. Especially in a world of blazing, frenetic, graphic games, INKS. is a welcome opportunity to return to simpler gameplay and quieter, calmer victories. Because gameplay can be endless, there are links to social media, and there's no gate on in-app purchases, parents may want to talk with younger players about rules around these elements.

Did we miss something on diversity?

Research shows a connection between kids' healthy self-esteem and positive portrayals in media. That's why we've added a new "Diverse Representations" section to our reviews that will be rolling out on an ongoing basis. You can help us help kids by suggesting a diversity update.
