158471Gameprom has released their take on iPhone pinball with Wild West Pinball [App Store]. This $2.99 game tries to offer a more authentic pinball experience and is very nicely animated with a 3D panning and scrolling table.

Features listed by the developer include:

- 40 frames per second
- Camera effects
- Realistic physics
- Natural sounds
- Top 15 global high score

The game is earning high praise from pinball fans who have been looking for a more authentic experience. Several users have commented on the accurate physics model and "real feel" of Wild West Pinball.

While there still remains a lot of praise for IUGO's Freeballin', that game presents a more stylized version of pinball that may not sit right with long-time fans of the genre.

    It's like Christmas every day with all the great new games coming out. 2 days ago it was Freeballin' (pinball -- not without its drawbacks, but I rated it 5 stars), and now this. Instant buy. Thanks for posting this article.

    Love the visuals and the smooth zooming on the table. Looks very polished and the table looks very good itsself too. Yet I'm not appealed to actually buy this game. I mean, one table...

    Wow ..those physics, and the frame rate ..so so impressive.

    I've bought it now. That's one of the most real-feeling pinball games I've tried in a long long time. I was gonna criticize the lack of music, but you can play your own music in the background ..I suspect that's why the sound is sparse. I think I'm going to like that too, because I'm often selecting amongst a small subset of apps that I know won't stop the music or podcast I'm already listening to.

    I really hooked on this game. It's noce to play something that doesn't "look" digital. I was iffy about buying it at first, but it was $1.99 very well spent.

    • Marat

      It's $2.99 at the App Store, how did you get the game for $1.99?
      i just bought Freeballin' and other Apps and i am broke, so every dollar counts.

    The 40fps is on the iPod touch, it's bit slower in the iPhone 3G. The only thing about it in terms of the table design is the right gutter is way too open.

    i'm looking forward to a soccer pinball like this one, complete with goalkeeper. Is there one already? or would gameprom consider doing one?

    with world cup coming up, sure lots of interest

    • Crowing

      Even though a soccer pinball sounds dope, nobody likes soccer. Its boring. I however, suggest a Hooters theme. It doesn't relate to pinball at all; yet, many men would back me up in saying, "bought before looked at price."

    It's great to see another pinball game, especially one that has more of a classic design and doesn't think that pinball is all about ramps. Ramps are cool, but everything in moderation.

    At any rate, I only wish it didn't look so sluggish. The physics do look good but the pinball moves like the table is covered in molasses. Faster, snappier, please!

    I'm quite fond of this one. Looking closely at the (smooth) table animation, though, I wonder if the game is using software rendering? It doesn't appear that texture filtering is in use.

    For the price another table or two in the game would be about right. Looks promising though!

    I really thought I would get #1, but the scores went up since I last checked. I'm determined to get it, though.

    I didn't realize that you can't change you name once you've entered it, so now the whole world knows my first name.:p

    Hi everyone, first post here. Have to admit I've grown addicted to the site, and I have tons of iphone games.

    Anyway, picked this up this morning:

    - SMOOOOOTH graphics
    - Feels just like a real pinball game
    - LOOOOVE the networked scoring mechanism.

    So far, for 2.99 this is a steal, especially for a fully featured smooth running pinball app that looks great and has great gameplay. I'm lovin it.

    Definitely reccomend for any gamer that looks for that old school feel of gameplay ( its about the score and skill instead of time investment ) and is easy enough to pick up and put down in a few mins.

    Shouldnt you be able to toggle the little gate lights by hitting the flippers. Then it makes it more fun when the ball is jumping through them, not just leaving it to chance?
