Before buying any tables, I tried out the Sorcerers Lair table just to get a jist of what they were like, and I can honestly say too much stuff was going on for me to understand what was going on with special doors and whatnot, and I couldn't read the small light up phrases ..I can only imagine the other tables are the same.

I don't really know wtf is going on, I just play and try not to let the ball fall through the flippers. Sometimes cool shit occurs. I read a guide on the Boba Fett table and got some idea of things you can trigger to make stuff happen, but I don't really have the ability to intentionally trigger them so I just play.

I know I'm in the minority, but I just could not play through Bastion because of the controls to me felt loose on the PC. Maybe it's better on a touch screen.

Sorcerer's Lair is actually one of the best tables to start learning on in Zen Pinball in my opinion. That sense of discovery and "oh hey, what did I do to trigger that?" is a big part of learning a table, and a lot of the fun in pinball comes from mastering all of those different modes and mechanics on any given table. You might want to check out a table guide to get a handle on some of the modes and make it feel a bit less random and chaotic. https://forum.zenstu...-Marvel-Pinball

If you want a simpler table with fewer bells and whistles, maybe try Iron Man or Wolverine. They still have modes and such, but the tables might be a bit easier to follow.

I asked this earlier. In the lower part of the game description for Bastion it says that iPhone 4 is fine, at the top it says 4s or later.

Anybody play it on a 4?

I passed on Clone Wars cause I'm not familiar with that franchise, but I guess I shouldn't let that stop me if it's a good table. I think I'm gonna pass on all the Marvel ones, they don't look that interesting.


All night I was playing Infinity Gauntlet table, at one point Thanos snaps his fingers and my flippers just went reverse and stayed up he then thru in a bunch of pinballs into the screen to screw with me. LOVE IT.

Not a sale, but one of my absolute favorite puzzle games, Puzzlejuice, was finally updated with iPhone 5 screen support. It's two bucks and would be worth it at three times the price. It's sort of like a manic combination of Spell Tower, Tetris, Insane Game and... I dunno, something with powerups. It's a color-matching, line-erasing, word-making action puzzler with incredibly slick visual design. Definitely give it a look.

Zen Pinball Star Wars sale ended today, a day earlier than advertised. I suspect the Marvel sale will also end a day early, meaning today will be the last day of the sale. If you haven't already, grab Moon Knight as it is awesome! I ended up buying all the Marvel except World War Hulk.

Btw you may already know this, but I just learned how to share in-app purchases like Zen Pinball tables with friends/family authorized for my Apple account. I'll walk through getting my Zen Pinball tables on my mom's iPad:

Bastion went down from $4.99 to 99¢. I was waiting for this one to hit this price.

Bastion: https://itunes.apple...d537773100?mt=8

Edit: Bastion works only on devices with an A5 or higher (iPad 2, iPhone 4S, iPod Touch 5G). Glad I sprung for the iPod Touch 5G instead of the 4G.


Any other thoughts on Bastion on touchscreen vs. XBLA/PC? I was going to wait on a price drop of the XBLA version because I prefer playing via controller, but I'd consider giving this a shot.

I'm pretty damn annoyed with the pinball sale ending early. I tried to buy clone wars last night and it was at 1.99. I sent them a complaint on twitter. They tweeted in the last 21 hours that the sale was on for a couple more days, I think this is a mistake.

I tried Zen Pinball on my iPad, wow this is really the way to play it. Felt much better than on the iPod cause I was able to play in portrait mode and see the whole table, on the smaller screen I feel the need to play in landscape or else everything is too small.

AppZapp told me that Fetch for iPad was 2.99 but so far it hasn't dropped, so that may happen tonight. AppZapp has been known to predict drops in advance, maybe based on other regions?

I have it on my MacBook and would only use th touchpad so I didn't enjoy it.

But on my iPad it was an incredible experience. You tap where you want to go and it moves the character so you have to be a little careful at times but otherwise, it was incredible and touch controls were well done IMO.

Well Zen Pinball twitter account told me the Star Wars sale ended on the 6th. I could have sworn it said the 8th in the app store but it does show as 6th on their blog. Weird.


Bladeslinger is supposed to be $0 according to AppZapp, but is not currently.

Reliable ol Appzapp, Bladeslinger is now free, and Fetch has dropped to 2.99.

Do any of you know if the iOOTP Baseball games ever go on sale? I've never played one and I keep hearing great things about the new one, and even though it's only $5 I'd obviously rather pay less unless historically that doesn't happen.

I have bought it at the normal price this year and last year and I never spend over $.99 for a game on the App Store. It's worth every penny.

Apparently this is in celebration for their new small-screen iPhone version Mushroom Wars Mini. It's not clear if the app will go "paid" soon, but y'all might grab it now, since it currently shows no IAP to unlock a "full game". :)

Are we only allowed to link to price history on appshopper and no where else? I'm biased so I would like to ask your opinions. Take Asaphalt 7 sale as example. AppSnatcher shows "Current price is the lowest price. Total 10+ days at current price, no current IAP sales."

It seems better than having to read lists of price/date changes,
