“You don’t get much better pinball for free, and the paid tables are worth a look too.”Free
It’s all very well demanding utterly realistic simulation from a pinball game, but why not take advantage of the virtual realm to pull off tricks that real pinball tables can’t do? That, to us, is Zen Pinball’s great attraction; it doesn’t feel quite as right as Real Pinball HD - Vampire, and its visuals aren’t as sharp, but it has some lovely special effects up its sleeve that it shows off fully in Sorcerer’s Lair, its free table. It features ghosts, spooky wormholes, bright strobing bumpers and great animated 3D characters, plus the obligatory sub-table and bonus games. On the downside it features a lot of really bad – we’re talking Saturday-morning cartoon quality – voice acting, but you can’t have everything. And if you cough up for one of the paid Marvel tables, you’ll discover much more polished affairs.
