Best Pinball Ever! (And it still is!) - Pinball is a melding of mind and machine into pure instinct, and I love the game. I thought I'd only be true to Littlewing pinball tables, but Gameprom has created possibly the best pinball ever. The three tables each have three camera views, one of which follows the ball (and can give you motion sickness if you are prone to that). My favorite is the perspective view from the player's position, only down low and looking out over the field. The animations allow you to get more familiar with the details of the table and what happens when your ball goes into those covered areas. The flippers are almost clairvoyant. Very good ball control. The game stories are great and varied. Board animation is smooth and superb. I have yet to plumb the depths of each level; it's not easy, but the challenge keeps one coming back for more. The music is appropriate to each setting, not terribly annoying, but not always what I'd like to hear. I don't count off for that, because music is so subjective. However, this is the first pinball game for which I've chosen to leave the music on. And how do you turn the music on/off? Adjust controls? It doesn't tell you at first, but it uses the Mac Preferences convention: Command-Comma. As others have pointed out, there is no high score. That may be a drawback to some, but it doesn't bother me. I am more interested in exploring the board than only focusing on numbers. I think that may be why they chose not to include it, because these boards really deserve exploring. Maybe they'll add one someday, but does it really change anything? Only for network competition. This may be the best bargain ever for what is certainly a set of the best pinball tables ever. I won't say THE best, because there's no meaning to such a statement. But anyone who loves pinball will definitely enjoy these tables. Top of the line in every respect, these are extremely well done. Beautiful graphics! Kudos to Gameprom for going the WHOLE distance, and creating something we can really sink our flippers into. (2013 edit: I've been using it in OSX 10.8.3 (Mountain Lion), and it works great. I have not seen any problems with it.) I'd give this game 10 stars if there were that many.
Continues Not to Work With Retina MBP's - On both of our Retina Mac Book Pros, a 2.3 Ghz and a 2.6 Ghz., if you don't use the flipper for a few seconds, the next time you press it there is a delay in the flipper response. It does not fix the problem to use the discreet graphics.
