A Lot or a Little?
What you will—and won't—find in this app.
Ease of Play
The default controls for this app use the touch screen to control both flippers. With this option selected, the user can't control the flippers separately, removing some of the gameplay strategy. The flippers can be assigned to other buttons in the options section.
Products & Purchases
In addition to links to the Android Market where you can buy other apps from this publisher, there are banner ads at the top of the game while you play.
Parents Need to Know
Is It Any Good?
PINBALL is creative and a nice way to pass time while waiting in line, but it's not going to wow true pinball fans. The tables lack depth and stories, and the ball can sometimes be lost in the tables with more colorful backgrounds. The ads are a concern for parents of younger children. The tables deviate from normal pinball play (especially the Space Invaders design), but that's what keeps this app from becoming just another mediocre pinball game. It's free, so if the ads aren't a concern, it's worth a download.
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.
