Fireball™ and El Dorado™ Have Just Been Released!

Fireball™ and El Dorado™ have just been released!

Fireball™ (1972): is a highly collectable, fantasy themed pinball table that was designed by Ted Zale. This innovative game included ball saving features such as the Flipper-Zipper and a Kickback Kicker in the Left Outlane. The Flipper-Zipper moves the Flippers to block the center drain and the Kickback Kicker prevents balls from draining down the left Outlane. The middle of the playfield features a Whirlwind Spinner, which sends the ball flying in random directions. Locked ball bonuses and 2 and 3-Ball Multi-Ball put this game way ahead of its time. Fireball™ is a lightning storm of scoring action! 3,815 units of this table were produced.

El Dorado™ (1975): features a playfield that was used for multiple tables including El Dorado City of Gold™, released in 1984. This playfield was also used for an Add-A-Ball version called Gold Strike™, an Add-A-Ball version released in Italy called Lucky Strike™, a 4-player replay version called Target Alpha™, a 4-player replay version released in France called Canada Dry™ and a 2-player replay version called Solar City™. Designed by Ed Krynski, the game features classic electro-mechanical gameplay with four flippers, two sets of Drop Targets and 10 Rollovers that can be lit for big points! 2,875 units of this table were produced.

Ich bin von klein auf mit Flipper(n) groß geworden und so habe ich mir vor ein paar Jahren den Star Trek Flipper dann auch in Real gekauft und irgendwann wieder verkauft.

Um so mehr habe ich mich dann über Pinnball Arcade gefreut und über den STNG Flipper und kann nur sagen, 1:1 umgesetzt, unglaublich gut gemacht. Alle Missionen, Holdeck, Mulktiball, alles wie beim Orginal.

Absolute Kaufempfehlung für Flipper Freunde.
Kleine Manko, die Preise für die Flipper Pakete sind schon ganz schön gesalzen, vergleicht man mal Pinball FX.

Spiel:

Pinball Arcade ist ein Pinball Spiel was Originalgetreue Flippen im Sortiment hat. Hier werden wirklich echte Flippe wunderschön präsentiert und gut umgesetzt.

----------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------

Einzelspieler:

Man spielt hier ganz klassisch nach den Original Regeln Pinball. Man absolviert die Aufgaben auf dem Flippen um den Highscore in die Höhe zu treiben. Man kann jederzeit seine Ansicht wechseln um den Überblick zu behalten.
Im Challange Modus steigt Spielerlevel auf wenn man alle Aufgaben auf den vorgegeben Tischen erfüllt. Im Tournament Modus kann man wenn man sich registriert auch an Turnieren teilnehmen.

Im Free2Play Modus hat man nur einen Tisch zur Auswahl, die anderen muss man in Paketen kaufen.
Für das Normale Paket (wo nur die Tische sind) zahlt man 27,99€ (2,80€/Tisch) und für das Pro Packet zahlt man (wo alle Tische und Guides drin sind) 36,99€ (3,70€/Tisch).

----------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------

Mehrspieler:

Der Mehrspieler Modus ist Lokal möglich indem man sich abwechselt, oder halt im Tourniermodus.

----------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------

Grafik:

Die Grafik ist wirklich schön im DX9 Modus, im DX11 Modus wird die Auflösung nicht erkannt.

----------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------

Musik:

Die Musik ist natürlich nicht der Hit, aber jeder Flipper hat seine Original Melodie.

----------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------

Steuerung:

Die Steuerung ist mit dem XBOX Pad sehr gut, aber natürlich auch mit Tastatur möglich.

----------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------

Pro/Contra:

+ viele schöne Original Tische
+ gute Grafik (DX9)
+ gute Steuerung
+ es kommen immer mal neue Tische dazu
- Keine Neustart funktion
- DX11 Modus funktioniert nicht richtig
- Highscore nicht vergleichbar ohne Anmeldung
- DLCs viel zu teuer

----------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------

Fazit:

Ich bin wirklich sehr begeistert von diesem Spiel, es wirkt wirklich sehr detailgetreu in meinen Augen. Die Grafik ist schön und die Missionen machen auch Spass (wenn man herausgefunden hat wo man hin treffen muss^^).
Leider nervt es schon wenn man am Anfang einen Fehler macht und nicht einfach Reseten kann, man muss sich nervig durch das Menü klicken um es neu zu starten. Die Kamera kann nur geändert werden wenn der Ball auch in Bewegung ist, was aber nicht schlimm ist denn wenn man den Ball nicht Flippt wird er nicht als vergeudet gezählt und bekommt einen neuen.
Leider ist nur ein Tisch vorhanden und die restlichen müssen teuer dazu gekauft werden. Es wäre wirklich schön wenn man sich Pakete selbst zusammenstellen könnte. Wer sich also noch an gute alte Flipperzeiten erinnert wird hier viel Spass haben.

----------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------

Zusammengefasst:

Einzelspieler: 9/10
Mehrspieler: 3/10
Grafik: 8/10
Musik: 10/10
Steuerung: 10/10

Spiel: 8/10

If you are interested in Real pinball, as in machines out in the real world. This is the game for you.
All the tables are based on real tables, and does a pretty good job of it. So after playing the tables in this game, you already know what to shoot for out in the real world, and your scores will be that much greater.
However, Make sure you run this game in DX11, and make sure you adjust the lighting. (I usually go for 10-15% room brightness and 90-100% lamp brightness, to better emulate how games typically will look like in the real world.)


Now for the bad parts. (Why you shouldn't buy this game)

DX11
Most people will not know how to run this game in DX11, so the game will look like crap tbh. And when you see the same machine in the real world, it will not look familiar at first. (because in RL it will be much darker.) in short, this game will not look like the screenshots to most people. (I'm sure this issue will eventually be addressed.)

Pricing
My biggest complaint here is that you have to pay extra to get access to "Pro-menus"
This means you can't tweak the tables to match Tournament settings, where extra balls are usually turned off. This is the biggest complaint I have about that. Some might argue, but I feel this is just a moneygrab.

FPS
The game is locked at max 60fps. As someone who has been used to playing at 120fps on another game, this looks terrible. When the ball moves quickly across the table it looks like a series of frames, not movement. Not only does this look bad, but diminishes the feel of the game. For something intended to emulate real world pinball, this is something that need to be improved. Monitors with higher refresh rates are more and more common, and is cheaper than ever, as monitor makers now focuses on 4k and g-sync/free-sync.

Nudging = unrealistic
In this game, nudging shakes the table and moves the ball a bit afterwards. In the real world, you shake the table a bit, but the ball will just stay in place. (like moving a carpet under a ball, the ball just rolls in place dues to the inertia of the ball, and pinball are quite heavy.) So in the real world, you nudge a part of the machine into the ball to make it move, like a bumper, wall or the flipper. (I make a point of only nudging when "slap saving" or a wall/bumper would hit the ball to move it. So that I don't develop any unrealistic habits for when I play RL tables.)

Physics are generally bad.
It does a good job of trying to emulate the feel of playing a real table, but combined with 60fps, the collision handling is just horrible. Many times the ball has moved into the same space of the flipper, resulting in the ball shooting off in the direction nearest to open space. Like straight through the object, out the other side. (the nudging doesn't even follow any laws of physics.)

3D
Although you can play the game in 3D, like with Nvidia 3D vision, the game consists of 2D objects, albeit layered. So although bumpers and ramps stick "out", they are still 2D flat. The ramps looks especially dull.


Conclusion.
+ If you want something that emulates real pinball, this is definately the game for you. Buy it!
- If you want a pinball game that looks better, plays better and takes advantage of all the possibilities a pinball game on the computer can give you. You might not want to buy this game.

But overall, this is still a fun game to play, even if this is the "second" pinball game you buy ;)

Don't mind my hours because I've played a ton of Pinball Arcade. I first fell in love with it on the Playstation 3 and eventually moved to the Steam version, which I like much more. I highly recommend getting the season packages. In fact, this is put out by a fairly small outfit with a lot of dedication and passion for pinball, so I pay extra for the pro pack to help support them. I don't even mess with the extra stuff that comes with the pro, except maybe ball skins. They're just worth it.

If you don't know, buying a past season gives you all the games from that season, since they've already released. Your game (Pinball Arcade) updates a few minutes after your purchase, so there isn't an install, unless things have changed since I bought one last. If you buy the current season, there may only be a few games but be patient. Similar to a current season of TV episodes, the games are still being released and you'll get them as they come until the purchased season is over. It gives you something to look forward to!

As an 80s kid, I didn't have money for plunking into pinball or arcade machines. I was one of those who would stand around and watch others play, just to feel the excitement. My father worked in a factory and would sometimes bring home an actual pinball that popped out of a big machine on occasion. I settled for rolling that around on the floor (sad, I know!)

But now, I have more than I could ever dream at my fingertips! And they're so realistic! Farsight takes the actual tables and dissects them, ensuring we get as authentic an experience as possible besides playing the real thing. And while owning real pinball machines sounds great, think of the upkeep and expense, not to mention the room you'd need. It's a romantic thought, but this is way better.

I have a number of pinball video games, but there are two that rule supreme for me: Pinball FX2 (Zen) and Pinball Arcade. I love Zen Pinball for the fantasy angle. They make excellent tables that never existed so anything is possible, especially with Marvel and Star Wars! But when I want to play something that was actually crafted and made the rounds back when I was wishing I could play, that's when Pinball Arcade comes through for me.

I play using a Logitech Gamepad F310, by the way, and it works great!

This is my first time actually sitting down and writing a review here (I think), so I hope it was worth a poop.
