on one device
There are plenty of entertaining pinball games available for Apple's iPhone and iPad. Take Pinball Arcade, for example. (Right, now give it back.)
However, very few - if any - pinball games are quite like Bulkypix's PinWar, which has just shot onto the New Zealand App Store.
PinWar is a multiplayer pinball title that features two different game modes, as well as an in-game editor, you see.
In Battle mode, you are pitted against your buddies (or computer-controlled opponents if you don't have any) in real-time face-to-face battles on a single device.
In this mode, two unique tables are sandwiched together into a single power-up-filled playing field, and you're tasked with getting your ball through your opponent's half of the table.
The other side
In Mission mode, PinWar's second game mode, you try to complete a variety of objectives, which include breaking through walls and shooting targets.
You can play through this mode alone or with a co-op partner. Again, this is all done on a single device.
PinWar will be available as a Universal app for all generations of Apple's iPad, the iPhone 3GS, iPhone 4, iPhone 4S, iPhone 5, plus the third-, fourth-, and fifth-gen iPod touchs.
Grab it in the UK and US from midnight this evening for £1.49 / $1.99.
