    Talking Zen Pinball on iOS

    Zen Pinball iOS will be available for iPad, iPod Touch and iPhone 4 starting next week!

    If you are at all familiar with Pinball FX2, then you know how this will work: Zen Pinball on iOS is a FREE pinball platform download for everyone. Included in the download is a FREE table - Sorcerer's Lair - which users can play as long as they want, no strings attached.

    All other tables will be individual in-app purchases.

    Table selection will be a mix of Zen's original designs and the Marvel series. There will be a total of three tables at launch including Sorcerer's Lair.

    Some key features:

    - Achievements – powered by Open Feint
    - Game Center enabled
    - Leader Boards – Global leader boards and local high scores
    - Rule Sheet – Each table comes equipped with a rule sheet providing tips and tricks to help you boost your score
    - Hot Seat Multiplayer – Pass the game around to friends as you compete with each other for the top pinball wizard

    We will let you know when the game is live next week!

    Default Awesome news to hear

    My wife just got an IPad 2. So I'm thrilled to hear this news.

    Will it play natively at IPAD2's higher screen res?

    Default Congratulations on a great release!

    I picked up Zen Pinball on release day, after a minute of game play I purchased the additional two tables (scorcerer's liar my favorite). After playing on my iPhone (4) I went back and purchased all but 2 (mars and ms splossion man) on XBLA for FX2. Hard to beleive I'm putting aside most of my retail games (BF3, COD3, etc...) to play pinball. Much kudos to a great game, I look forward to the release of more tables on all the availble platforms!

    I need to go 5-star review this game! Thank you Zen Studios!

    I'm glad you're enjoying the game! We'll be putting out more tables for both platforms soon!

    Will the tables already released in Pinball FX 2 be released on the iOS platform eventually or only new tables?

    We'll be releasing existing tables as well as new ones. However, the Vengeance and Virtue Marvel pack won't be coming to iOS right away.

    I thought Zen Pinball iPad 1 ran ok, but I was watching a video of the 3DS Zen Pinball and it seems to be running smoother than the iPhone 4/iPod Touch 4/iPad 1 version. Telling from the specs, it should be possible to get the iPad 1 version running just as smooth. Is this planned?

    just discovered this today : touch upper third of screen => tilt

    I can confirm that tilt issue on iPad2. It's a real pain in the arse if you just miss the pause button.

    The Spider-Man table is only in Marvel (due to licensing issues) and SWP got its own app so it could have its own Star Wars features. For whatever reason Apple doesn't allow imports/transfers between apps.

    The good people at Gameprom have managed to do this with tables purchased in Pinball HD - which are automatically transferred to Pinball Collection - a completely seperate app.

    Are you certain this can't be done with your apps?

    With Spider-Man, it's not a technical issue, it's a license issue, so the only way we could publish it was in it's own Marvel Branded app. We were always told that it was iTunes & Google Play's policy that in-app purchases could not be transferred/imported, but maybe that has changed since we began publishing.
