    Default Zen Pinball HD is now on the NOOK HD and Nook HD +

    Barnes and Noble just recently introduced an update to the Nook HD and Nook HD + tablets that grants the devices access to the Google Play store. I installed Zen Pinball onto the HD + and it works perfectly. The device has a 1.5 ghz processor so it plays without lags or slow downs.

    I would not recommend everyone who has a Nook HD download the app from the Google Play store as it is not a supported device and I've already had to give refunds for it.

    What kinds of things have gone wrong? I have it on my Droid Razr M, so I had already paid for it on that device. I'll admit, I haven't had time to play with it much, but did restore all my tables onto it.

    Well that's good! I've had a couple people have issues with freezing/crashing unfortunately. If it's a secondary device, I say go for it

    Well, I thought I'd monkey with this some more to see if I found any problems. It turns out that so far all the tables I have played have loaded up and played fine, except for the Star Wars tables. They freeze up and crash the app. So far it appears that it is just the Star wars tables with the issues everything else seems ok.

    Same here, all table's work great except the star wars tables. IM thinking that it has to be an issue with the intros and can be easily fixed.

    How do you install this on a nook hd+? I purchased it for my phone and would like to try it on the nook. I don't seem to have the option to install it.

    We might have blacklisted the Nook+ until we can fix the Star Wars crashes.

    Hi, I was curious how that was coming along. Is there hope?

    I installed CM 10.1 onto the my nook HD and now the game is fully functional. No crashes when playing the star wars maps.

    I just noticed this. So where does this leave people like me, who have already bought tables on a Nook HD+? What happens if I have to reinstall the app, which is now listed as incompatible? It's bad enough that I spent money on tables that didn't work, and I was willing to let that slide, but if I lose access to all the tables that DO work I'll be furious!

    You'd have to contact us to get a refund (support at zenstudios dot com).

    Not that I'm aware of.

    I usually play Zen Pinball with my Droid Razr M and it works just fine. Next time I get a phone I want something bigger though. I have an N2A card for my Nook HD+. If you boot it up with the card, it is basically rooted and running Jelly Bean. I managed to get Zen Pinball installed on it while in N2A mode and all the tables work perfectly, even the Star Wars tables. It handles the game perfectly, no freezing or slowing down. Is it possible to get it unblacklisted for users with N2A cards. I know if I removed it or tried to update it would be a pain to get back on?

    Nook compatibility is something we're going to try to revisit at some point, though I'm not sure when. I'll post the news if I hear anything about Nook

    Please do! I bought a Nook HD+ a few months ago. It would be nice to pay ZP on it.

    Just went to the Play Store on my Nook HD + and it's now listing the Zen Pinball HD, Marvel Pinball and Star Wars Pinball apps in the store. I gave ZPHD a whirl since it comes with a free table and it seems pretty stable to me.

    All the kinks should be worked out now and compatibility was recently restored.
