Thread: Zaccaria Pinball available on Android Play Store

    Default Zaccaria Pinball available on Android Play Store

    Hey All,
    Just wanted to make you aware of a new Pinball app available on the Play Store since yesterday.
    Zaccaria Pinball - https://play.google.com/store/apps/d...pixel.Zaccaria

    This has been available on iOS for a little while, but at long last was ported to Android and released yesterday.
    It's a collection of 28 Zaccaria Pinball tables from the 70's and 80's, and if you like good Pinball, are going to love this if you like older table designs. This is drop target heaven.



    It's biggest strength is customisability. Almost everything is tweak able. Cameras, lighting, physics, playfield dirt and Wear.
    Make sure you set physics to 'simulation' as the default is 'arcade' which has a tiny flipper gap.

    You can free play the tables with adverts, or purchase tables and addons. I personally went for the Gold pack which gives me everything and at £14 something is great value IMO.

    Wanted to post this to drum up some support for the devs, hopefully to encourage more good Pinball to the play store, but also hoping some of you guys would appreciate this as much as I do. :-)

    I bought around 6-8 tables on iOS a long time ago. Zaccaria has some unique table designs but I was extremely disappointed with physics of the game. If I recall correctly, you could also buy an iap that allows you to tweak the physics. I tried playing with the settings but the physics always felt terrible. Maybe the devs have improved the physics engine since the last time I played the game but I would be cautious before buying more tables.

    It's a different animal now I guess, but I've only had access since yesterday.

    Don't know if ios and Android physics are the same (I don't think they currently are), but Android physics when set to 'simulation' are easily more realistic than TPA.

    I personally turn flipper strength down to 50% too for an older table feel.

    You can literally tune this any way you wish. If it doesn't play the way you wish it to, it's because you haven't set it properly. The devs really couldn't give you more control.

    The current physics are extremely good. You are correct the OLD physics were very poor, but they have re coded a lot of stuff after a ton of feedback from the TPA forum. I bought Gold and this is my favourite pinball app now. Incredible work with supoerb lighting especially in dark mode.

    Looks like I am going to have to redownload this and check it out. Thanks for the heads up Nik and allmodcons.

    Try and remember that this is on a mobile device. Wow. :-)

    I love it too, played it before on friends devices when it was strictly on iOS and now it is way more improved.
