Pinball has been a popular game for decades, and while you can still find tables around; you don’t see anywhere near the amount you would have 20 years ago. Sometimes you’ll find them in arcades, and bars will almost always have one tucked away in a corner. With the popularity of mobile gaming it was a no-brainier to put Pinball on Android devices, and there are quite a few good Pinball games out there now. We went through the market and came out with 5 we liked the best. Here’s our Top 5 Pinball games for Android…
Pinball for Android
The title says it all with this one, the game is simply called Pinball for Android. Don’t let the lack of flair in the name fool you though, this pinball game from Magma mobile is packed full of features. It has7 very cool boards including Christmas, Android Land, Soccer, Underwater, Bowling, and my personal favorites Invaders and Sixties. You can change up th controls a bit in the options, and they have a simple high score system as well. If your looking for a solid pinball game with some great themed levels, you’re gonna enjoy Pinball for Android!
Pinball Deluxe is a great looking Pinball Game for your android device. It will run on tablets & phones as long as they are running 2.1 or higher. Pinball Deluxe has 4 different tables; Wild West, Underwater, Space & Carnival. All the tables play a bit differently, and the physics are top notch. It’s got some great graphics along with all the fun things that come with pinball games like ball captures, nudges, and mini-games. You can pick up Pinball Deluxe in the Android market for free.
Pinball Ride is easily one of the best looking 3D pinball games for Android. It has several different modes and challenges combined with great looking graphics, and solid gameplay. Pinball Ride has an achievement system, multi-balls and a slick soundtrack to boot. I wanted to rank this higher, but the table variety is a bit weak for me. Regardless, it’s still a very solid pinball game and best of all it’s free!
Carnival Pinball is a great looking pinball game from developers Net Mobile AG. All the levels are themed and uniquely connected. Carnival Pinball has some unique features like tunnels and vortex’s; they have a nice global high score board as well. There are three levels with this release, and the dev’s say more or on the way. It free to download, runs on tablets and supports APP2SD.
Developers Interplay have put out a funky little pinball game called Pinball Yeah! I really liked the tables in Pinball Yeah; you’ll get Code Runner, Irish Pub, Pirate Cove, and Artificial Intelligence. The physics were good as well, but the cool themed tables really made the game for me. You can go grab Pinball Yeah! for 1.49 in the Android market.
