If you grew up in the 80s or 90s, then you know how pinball was all the rage back then. Arcades used to be packed with tons of people lining up to get a turn at hitting a pinball across a table with lights and obstacles. It was the equivalent of owning a high-end console today, and for many, it’s still a fun way to pass the time. In an attempt to recreate everything we love about pinballs, app developer WellPlayed created their rendition of the popular arcade game called Pinball Robot.
This app requires Google Play Games, so make sure you have it installed on your phone beforehand. Once you download the app, you’ll be able to start a game of pinball by selecting your ball from the main screen. You can purchase 25 unique pinballs by tapping on the purchase option below each ball. The game’s controls are extremely easy to master and work just as you would expect from a pinball game.
To activate the left or right flipper, just tap on the right or left part of your screen. You can also tilt your device to affect the movement of the pinball across the table. The entire gameplay feels very fluid and realistic thanks to the game’s unique physics engine. There are different missions indicated on the bottom left corner of your screen that you can complete if you want to challenge your skills. You can then keep track of your highest score through Google Play Games and compare your performance to other players.
Pinball is free to download from the Google Play Store for devices running Android 2.3 and up.
