Thread: Marvel Woman of Power Tables First Impressions

    Default Marvel Woman of Power Tables First Impressions

    Got a chance to check these tables out prior to release, and despite being strictly Star Wars Pinball fan I came away extremely impressed. This will likely cause an avalanche where I end up buying tons of Marvel tables now.

    A-Force:
    I like a lot of things about this table: being able to recruit other A-Force members to give you advantages in Wizard Mode, the Titanium Man on the table, the dialogue. It has an easy Wizard mode where you don't need to actually complete the missions to advance. Second time around you do need to pass the missions though. There's a triple skill shot which is pretty easy to pull off too for some big points. Whether it was a placebo effect or not, I felt the ball physics were a tad looser. Good for rattling a ball heading towards the out lanes.

    Woman of Power: Champions
    I loved this table and will be going back to it again and again. It has a bright comic book style and spectacular dialogue and one-liners. There's funny dialogue too, like from Squirrel Girl. You can stack modes on each other (mostly happened by accident) and score big points. I've gotten 700 million on PS3/Vita and this was only after I decided to go for points after unlocking a trophy. This table is just wacky fun with crazy sound effects, funny dialogue, Ms. Marvel's really stretched out arms to activate the plunger and the 'fist save' kickback too.

    Overall I think this is a fantastic pack. I can't compare it to any other Marvel tables but I liked it more than most of the Star Wars tables I've played. Shows a great deal of polish and are just fun to play.

    Champions definitely the best.
    the table is shockingly faster than most, which I quite enjoyed.

    though....

    A Force was slightly bland, but better than Age of Ultron / Ant- Man.
    Table wishlist: Tremors, Regular Show, Orphan Black, Lost Girl, Ren & Stimpy, Futurama, Hack/Slash.
    Loki (More villians)
    Moon Knight - werewolves story arc
    Brainscan - Trickster theme.
    Critters, Tucker and Dale Vs Evil, Gremlins, Chucky.
    SAW (billy doll)
    B-movie horror/monsters.
    My Babysitters a Vampire, MONSTER HUNTER, Darkstalkers, Chocobos, Goosebumps.
    Fullmoon Studios themes (i.e. Puppet Master, Subspecies, KillJoy, Gingerdead Man, Trancers)

    Yeah I don't want much do I? >.>

    $6.99 for a two table pack? I was surprised to see that price point.

    Our tables are getting more detailed/complex and developing them for higher-end hardware requires more development time and assets. (Not to mention having premium licenses is getting more costly for us.)

    Sorry, didn't mean to imply they aren't worth it (everyone, go get them!), just a surprise. Awesome what you do with the discounted bundles (for older tables) to encourage new players to join in and purchase.

    Thanks! We try to keep costs down where we can and do sales as often as we can to keep people interested

    The Champions table is a blast to play. One problem it's left me wanting a Squirrel Girl and Spider Gwen table pack..

    Inflation, liscences, complexity, etc. all figure in to price I suppose. Good on Barbiebobomb to reply and be transparent about the costs! Zen Pinball is always a fantastic value for your money and although an extra $2 certainly isn't ideal I still feel it's a great value for your money. Especially these tables.

    Also agreed that a Squirrel Girl or other Woman of Marvel could use there own tables too! In fact in a Squirrel Girl table you could have a mode or hurry up with a nut instead of a ball with crazy erratic physics. That'd be fun.

    Good pack.

    I love the fact that the wizard modes the second time around is much more challenging. It gives newer or less experienced played the opportunity to get to them. I've noticed this much more of late in most of the recent tables. That is why I love American Dad so much.

    A force is an interesting table by Thomas Crofts. I like the dialogue in this much more than champions.

    Champions is by far the easier table to score points on IMO. The first game I played I got about 500M which is #5 on steam so far. It's definitely a table that will score high. The highest score already on Steam is 4.5 Billion or something like that.

    overall a fun pack. My only gripe is the style. It's too 'Archer' looking as far as style. It's hard to explains why I don't like it as much. Not saying it's bad. It just feels.....out of place compared to some of the other marvel tables.

    Still though a solid pack. Can't wait for the original tables that I heard mentioned about mythology. I've read it somewhere yet don't recall exactly where.

    Loving this pack. Tried the demos first. A-force was fun too, but one go on Champions was enough to make me buy the pack. What an absolute blast! And I am among the folks dreaming of a full Squirrel Girl table.

    Default Tables greyed out

    After buying Women of power tables for xbox one I noticed that Balls of Glory tables have been greyed out and wants me to purchase again. Heard anything?

    Try going to Manage Game and see if they are listed as ready to install. Or try adding them to your cart via Xbox.com and see if it tries to charge you again.
