    Default Some possible new tables.. classic ones.

    I really love the tables of Zen Pinball, but I would love it forever if it brought back and remastered some classics..

    Pro Pinball: The Big Race USA



    Pro Pinball: The Web



    Pro Pinball: The Fantastic Journey



    Pro Pinball: Timeshock!




    They would all need their original SFX and Music, but I really think bringing these classics back to life would earn my wallet.

    That would be impossible. The game's rights are owned by Barnstorm Games and they are already restoring them for mobile devices. Timeshock is already available on mobile and it looks amazing.

    I would just like to see updated graphics and having a background (instead of plain black) I think Zen Pinball would do a great job at re-creating them, with permission of course.

    My point is that they are already being recreated by another company. Barnstorm is owned by the creator of Pro Pinball and the new version is coming to PC soon.

    BTW, Timeshock has gotten a massive graphics overhaul and some impressive lighting that even puts Zen's tables to shame.

    See for yourself.

    Might be neat to see them update and "Zen-ize" older, classic tables, but I see the chances of them doing that to be about 0.1%. They've stated in the past, and as recently as January 2016, that they only make originals. Whether they be based off existing intellectual properties or completely new designs.

    Zen's thing is original arcade style tables, and I think that's the brand or image they want to keep, and where they want to allocate their time and money. If they can't/won't recreate these tables, perhaps they will create their own that are sort of spiritual successors to these someday.

    Okay, then how about Zen making a Timeshock sequel? Anything Pro Pnball related.

    They could make a "spiritual successor" or an original table inspired by Timeshock or any of the Pro Pinball series games but not a direct sequel as they would be infringing on copyrights of course. It'd be like Disney making an Ice Age movie...

    Yes, a Pro Pinball themed table would be nice, possibly one table featuring elements of all four original tables, all in one super-table (a spiritual successor one of course).

    The remake for timeshock is already out on iOS. I think the beta for the PC version released last month for certain kickstarter supporters.

    Like I said in my first post, it's already out on mobile. I have it on Andriod myself.

    My sincerest apologies. I must have missed that.

    It is also already out on Steam for PC and Mac.
    One again, it sets the new Level for digital pinball games.
    Playing in a cab in portrait mode, feels like playing a real table.

    Btw: Dont forget to vote for Zaccaria Pinball on Steam Greenlight: :-)
