Tower defense and pinball might seem like the odd couple of the gaming world, but they work remarkably well together. Zombie Rollerz: Pinball Heroes isn't perfect, but it's an enjoyable and unique take on a pair of familiar gameplay styles. The game's also different enough every time you play that even when you lose (and, make no mistake, you will lose frequently), you don't feel like you're stepping on the same treadmill the next time.

It's a game that doesn't take itself too seriously, poking fun at some gaming themes (like the hero having amnesia). And the power-ups during pinball increase the fun factor and improve the replayability (since you can choose different ones each time). The biggest complaint is the flippers on your screen are very close to the power-up buttons, which can cause you to misfire from time to time, either wasting a power-up or holding a flipper in the wrong position and losing a ball. It might not be as addictive as some other tower defense games, but it's a standout in an increasingly crowded genre.
