S…L…O…W game play - I just downloaded Twilight Zone into my Pinball Arcade. I am running this on a 24" iMac (early 2008), with RAM maxed out at 4GB. I am running the latest version of Mountain Lion. All the other tables in Pinball Arcade play fine. For whatever reason, game play is very slow. Hopefully an update and/or bug fix is on the way.
Button Delay - This game might be fun however when there is a half second delay when you touch the flipper buttons kinda takes the fun out of it. Also running on the new macbook pro the screen you are playing on is small hard to see the ball. You need to adjust the resolution just for this game then set it back when you are done. Not worth the money until these issues are fixed. For a $10 + $5 for additional tables this is a joke. If you have a new macbook dont waste your money. TESTING GOES A LONG WAY GUYS………..

Broken with High Sierra - I would have hoped that this build being released on September 2nd it would have been tested with High Sierra, but it just does not work. I have tried deleting the app, deleting the container, etc. I have a 2017 27” iMac. I have had it running at the default (standard retina) resolution. When it launches I get audio and brief video flash, but nothing else works. At least I can quit it using Command-Q. I will update my review once it is fixed.
Don’t Buy - I purchased this and the addition of the Black Knight table but the upper flippers don’t work nor do the options for setting the keyboard controls. I contacted the company and they said they are aware of this. No developer should put software on the app store that doesn’t work and I’m dissapointed Apple let this happen. Steer clear of this company.I would like a refund.
Slowdown bug still has not been fixed - Update: 10/31/2017 Slowdown bug has still not been fixed. I have a 2015 rMBP so hardware is not a problem. Game play slows down to about 1/10 of normal speed. This has been a bug for at least a year. Support is not helpful, as apparently they don’t have a Mac OS programmer now.
Does not work with High Sierra - please refund my account - 10/09/17 - I purchased and downloaded on a 2016 iMac Retina 5K 27 inch. Does not work at all - the display just flashes at a high rate. I can only quit with option + command + esc. How can I get a refund and delete from my account? Please let me know. Thanks.
flippers still do not work - This update is not working, I cannot selet custom flippers, and the nudge on your default flippers is not working. On a mac laptop running sierra.
