    I immediately installed this on my Galaxy Note 10.1 when I saw the post. Played one game as a guest on Sorcerer's Lair and after I lost my third ball it went to the score screen and basically froze. Now I can't seem to get it to work again. When I open the game up again there is only a black screen and nothing happens even if I leave it on for a while.

    On another note... how do I nudge with the tablet? With a lot of shaking I get it right but then it seems to only nudge a short while after I actually tried to nudge.

    NB: After I reset my tablet it seems to be working again.

      Tables purchased on other Android devices, do I have to repurchase again?

      I have an android tablet TF201 (Tranformer Prime) I've owned it for my TF201 for several months and it has worked fine.

      Occasional stuck flippers and such. I've been waiting to be able to play it on my Motorola Atrix 2. This is the Atrix2, not Atrix1. I know its been capable of playing on the Atrix 1 for quite a while now.

      What I'd like to know, is that since I downloaded (Purchased) tables for my Transformer Prime, will I have to repurchase tables for my phone (Motorola Atrix2)? I hope I don't have to re-purchase tables for the same platform (android)...

      Please let me know what is up with that and if there is a process or work around, I might not be aware of. I've already purchase these tables multiple times between, Xbox LIVE Arcade, and my wifes IOS (Ipad 2).

      Thanks,
      OSPerry

        It should not be a problem. Just hit the Refresh Purchases button on the game's main menu on your phone, while you're signed in with the same google account.

            I'm usually not one to play Pinball on an android phone or any phone for that matter because the screen is rather small. I must say that I did download the game on My SG3 and with it being a decent sized screen it plays pretty well. Although there seems to be a little slowdown here and there but I can't really tell what exactly makes it so.

            Sorcerer's Lair probably the most loved table by many and it's FREE. That'll hold me over if I'm on the road or waiting for an appointment. Thanks Zen.

              Controller support

              I've been playing the free table on my Nexus 7 a bit, and just picked up Tesla to try out. I'd love to see iCade/8-bitty support -- those controllers looks like BT keyboards, so being able to map their key presses to flippers would be really great. I tried using the USB/BT Joystick Center app for this, but found it very confusing, much more than just natively supporting the controller.

                Agreed! I just got done playing on my SG3 and I feel the same about the little stutters that happen sometimes. Especially for multiball. It's really no big deal at all though. The table (Sorcerer's Lair) looks absolutely stunning. Zen very good job!

                  Talk about AWESOME!

                  Wow...now that WAS fast! Barbie, just yesterday we talked about this, and I guess you weren't kidding when you said "soon, VERY SOON!"

                  Anyway, looks ABSOLUTELY FANTASTIC on my HTC EVO 4g LTE!! And I'm actually able to see what I'm doin! Lol...I hit the 6 way combo trophy immediately after start up (trophies on my phone, how awesome is that! ) plus I see it says all tables on sale .99 $ each...Happy Holidays indeed!

                  Couple quick questions....how much are the tables normally? (Not that it matters, buyin em all anyway, just curious)

                  When I create a mobile account, can I use my psn id? Also, are leaderboards seperate for mobile? (hence why I ask about using my psn id)

                  Anyway you guys are the best!

                  (and thanks for probably gettin me fired, now that ill be playing this at work! lol j/k )

                    any chance support for HTC evo 3D/HTC evo V 4G will be added? it's plenty powerful enough
                    Doesn't have to be 3D, just want to be able to play the game on the go without dragging around my Acer Iconia tab A500

                      Thanks so much for getting this out! I can't wait to show some of my friends and co-workers what Zen Pinball is all about. I was really, really hoping that The Infinity Gauntlet would be available, but I have plenty to keep me busy for now. It is coming eventually though, right?

                        Looks and plays great on my Nook running Android 4.1.2, Jelly Bean. Played a couple games of SL and Blade with no problems so far.

                          Nudging is really ineffective for me with the tablet... and it hurts my wrists Don't have any confidence in using it because it can just as well not work. I remember reading somewhere that it can be remapped to the top of the screen on Ios. Is that not possible for android as well?

                            Nope. Nudging cannot be remapped on iPads. It is all motion control (i.e. accelerometers/gyroscope). You may be thinking of the Pinball Arcade. Nudging can be remapped to the top of the screen on that game. I have played ZP on an iPad 1,2, and 3 and the nudging mechanic is terrible on all three. There is a single sensitivity slider for adjusting nudging. I have fiddled with the slider a lot but had no success. Nudging is too unreliable and inconsistent to use regularly for tablets. An attempted nudge will either 1) nudge correctly (which is rare) 2) fail to nudge at all 3) tilt with no tilt warnings. Because of the high likelihood of outcomes 2 and 3, it is not wise nudge at all. You just have to get used to playing the game without nudging. It makes the game harder, especially because of Zen's love of timed modes. You have to use slingshot passes or hold passes instead of nudge passes for ball transfers. The only time I would ever consider nudging on my iPad is attempting to do a bangback and only when I don't expect to have a large EOB bonus because an unexpected tilt can easily wipe it out. Don't expect any changes to nudging anytime soon. This has been a complaint in the iOS thread for over a year, basically since the release of the game.

                              Thanks for the reply. Pity to hear that nudging is worthless. On a positive note it will teach me how to play without using nudge as I am a prolific nudger on FX 2... I'm sure it will translate into new skills on FX 2.

                              I doubt though if I will ever play it often on my tablet... its nice to have though when I'm on holiday or something.
