    Great idea to release Zen Pinball on iOS!
    One of my favorite games on PSN.
    Sadly it doesn't work that well on my iPhone 3GS with latest iOS.
    Most of the text is way too small in menus.
    And when I play there is a big box that never disappears when I play.
    Making it unplayable since 1/3 of the tiny screen is covered. See picture below.



    Are these known bugs that will be fixed?
    The box can be turned off in the Settings -> Video menu. Turn Challenge Display to Off.

    Performance is something we're looking at on both iOS and Android. There's nothing specific we can recommend in the short term.

    There should be an option to turn off the notifications (the PS3 version has it). I also suggest turning off the DMD as well. That should make it easier to see the table.

    I'm keeping my fingers crossed for a performance update from Zen since even some iPad 2 and 4S users are reporting some choppiness.

    Also still no full screen view!, wtf Zen!!!???
    As a test, try turning off the Dot Matrix Display on the Captain America table. I know it's not ideal, but for me it makes the table MUCH smoother (on all tables).....hopefully Zen can optimize the performance in an update.

    It is the best pinball on iOS for sure. Just wish it ran a little better on my iPad 1......any chance the frame rate will be optimized in an update?

    Try turning off the "Arcade Effects". That should improve the frame rate. The special effects require more processing power and can boggle things down.

    For me, the price per table is perfectly fine. I used to drop money in pinball machines for years, so to own a table for a couple of bucks, and be able to play it at any time, is one heck of a deal, even when I already own all these tables on the PS3.

    I was extremely impressed with the new table rules. I've often found Zen's rules to be a little bit confusing, but the new animations make it clear what has to be hit to trigger whatever mode.

    Look for me on the leaderboards - BlueFrog

    Ok got it ... for some reason i couldn't access the 'store' ingame and get the other tables ....

    Anyway i only have ipod touch so it's very small, maybe i'll pass on this one.

    all in all it seems more fluid on the ipod than on the tegra 2 tablet... so i guess ipad would be the best gameplay experience for this release !
