Late last month, Zen Studios announced that four new tables would be heading to Star Wars Pinball [$1.99] in an update dubbed the "Heroes Within" pack. Along with the announcement came a trailer for a table fashioned after Han Solo, then just over a week ago Zen released a trailer for the table themed after Episode IV: A New Hope. Today they've released the latest trailer, this time for the "Droids" table which features R2-D2 and C-3PO. Check it out...

Last week, Zen Studios announced a new table pack for their popular pinball game Star Wars Pinball [$1.99]. The upcoming table pack will include four new tables, a "Masters of the Force" table featuring both good and evil forces, a "Droids" table featuring C-3PO and R2-D2, an "Episode IV: A New Hope" table, and a table themed around Han Solo and his furry sidekick Chewbacca. The original announcement showcased a trailer for the Han Solo table, and today Zen has released a trailer showing off the Episode IV table...

Zen Studios' Star Wars Pinball [$1.99] is an awesome mashup of digital pinball and George Lucas's iconic space saga, and it's set to get even more awesome with the upcoming Heroes Within table pack. Upon its original release in March of last year, Star Wars Pinball came with three tables: Empire Strikes Back, The Clone Wars and Boba Fett. Then in October, the "Balance of the Force" update added tables for Return of the Jedi, Starfighter Assault and Darth Vader, bringing the total number of Star Wars Pinball tables up to six. Following that last update we reviewed Star Wars Pinball, and enjoyed it quite a bit...

The soccer-themed new table for Zen Studios' Zen Pinball [Free], which was announced late last month, is now available to download from within the Zen Pinball app. The way the Super League Football table works is a bit different from the other DLC tables in the game. There are actually eight different versions for the table, seven that cover popular football clubs and an eighth that is for the fictional Zen Studios Football Club. These are all actually separate IAP tables, even though they are the same table layout for each. The difference between each is just the theme. So you'll need to choose your allegiance before picking one up, and then there's sort of a big online battle between all the various football club tables within the game...

Developer FarSight Studios have done a marvelous job of recreating dozens of classic real-world pinball tables in their Pinball Arcade [$0.99 / Free] game since early 2012. Now, according to an interview with the BBC (via Polygon), the studio is looking to create their own original pinball tables...

Super League Football Table Heading to 'Zen Pinball' in Forthcoming Update

If you love football (or soccer here in America) and pinball, then the folks at Zen Studios have a treat in store for you. A brand new pinball table called Super League Football is heading to the Zen Pinball [Free] app as an update and as its own standalone release in the near future. Zen Studios is renowned for making excellent digital pinball tables, but this Super League Football table sounds like a pretty unique experience...

'Star Wars Pinball 2' Review - The Tilt is Strong With This One

Enough with the Star Wars. We get it. They were fun movies. But do we really need another derivative, cynical capitalization on our memories of a... what's that? It's a pinball game from Zen Studios? Yes, please. And how much of my money would you like?"..

Alright, I'll come clean, when I first heard about Star Wars Pinball [$1.99] I was super skeptical, largely thanks to the "movie games and tie-ins are traditionally bad" universal law of gaming. However, at this point, Zen Studios has proven me wrong about a dozen times over, as Star Wars Pinball is not only a great game, but their commitment to continually releasing new content is awesome...

Zen Studios took their pinball expertise into space earlier this year with the release of Star Wars Pinball [$1.99]. Three different tables covered various areas of the Star Wars universe, with a table for The Empire Strikes Back, one showcasing the bounty hunter Boba Fett, and one based on Star Wars: The Clone Wars. Besides the standalone version of these tables, they were also available for download inside the Zen Pinball [Free] app...

Coming Tonight: WiiWare 'Bayonetta'-ish Beat 'em Up 'Ark of Sinners Advance' Heads to iOS

Another title in the onslaught of tonight's releases is Ark of Sinners Advance by Bulkypix. Set in the Anima: Beyond Fantasy universe, Ark of Sinners seems to draw considerably from the existing pool of lore that an already established universe provides. You play as Celia, who according to the previously linked Wikipedia page is a member of a faction who is "implanted with technology infused with magic."..

Zen Studios has been pinballing back and forth (see what I did there?) with their recent pinball game updates and releases. First, we saw Zen Pinball [Free] proper updated with the three new Star Wars themed tables that we'd been hearing about for the month prior. ..

When Zen Studios originally announced Star Wars Pinball in early February, they had stated the three new tables based on the iconic series would hit as both DLC for the existing Zen Pinball [Free] app and as a brand new standalone game. Then when the Star Wars DLC finally hit Zen Pinball towards the end of the month, there was no sight of said standalone game...

So Zen Pinball [Free] has all the Star Wars Pinball IAP tables in it now, but it's sort of become vaguely apparent that unless you were around during the 80's when pinball was a thing you probably don't know how to actually play pinball. I mean, I understand the basic concept, but most of my pinball playing strategy involves focusing on specifically not losing the ball... And I think a lot of people are the same way...
