    Hey Everybody! IUGO is proud to announce its super fantastic pinball game! We'll be submitting for review on the App Store soon and we need your help in picking a name. Here's a brief description of the game along with 2 sneek peaks of the table artwork:

    Endless hours of pinball entertainment spread across four unique, beautifully rendered playfields, including the Jungle and Cityscape themes. Over a half a dozen playfields in total, including boss battles!

    You can play in three distinct gameplay modes: Score Attack is the classic pinball experience to get the highest score possible with your limited supply of orbs; Time Attack forces the player to get to a target score as quick as possible; and Adventure Challenge has the player collecting artifacts from three different themes with the help of game-changing powerups.

    This is pinball like you've never seen before!

    I agree, "ball busters" sounds painful:(

    I went with "Freeballin'"

    Sounds fun, IUGO-ish. :)

    Pinball Odyssey, Pinball Planet sound too sterile. Though there is some advantage of having the word Pinball in your title I think for search purposes.

    IUGO Pinball

    We have the use of keywords on the App Store, so "pinball" does not have to be in the game title.

    Freeballin' was one of my suggestions... :D I think it's important to have a fun and catchy name. But we are very happy to see what y'all think!

    Oh and thanks everyone, we appreciate the effort.

    no.....................PIMP MY BALLZ

    lol


    its genius
     
  12. Had to go with the whimsical double-entendre Freeballin'. It was that or Ball Bustin', but Freeballin' sounded more like a pinball game and less like a Breakout game. It's also more likely to grab attention than something pretentious like Pinball Odyssey or Pinball Fusion, less likely than Epic Balls to be confused with Epic Pinball (one of Epic Megagames' early series), and less wishy-washy or silly (in the not-so-good sort of way) than the rest.

    Other options:

    Ballin' (got that urban flavour)
    Testy Balls
    Ben Wa's Balls of Mystery


    Um ... yeah ... maybe not.

    Person 01: Yo XY, did you dl anything good from iTunes yet?
    Person 02: I sure did!
    Person 01: Yeah? What's that?
    Person 02: I got me some EPIC BALLS!

    I rest my case...

    "Great Balls of Fire!"
    "What?"
    "I got Ball Busters on sale! I'm ready to bust some balls!"
    "It's a PINBALL game."
    "Yeah, and?"

    No choices about Eyeballs? I see two eyeballs in the screenshots.

    Looks cool from the sneak peaks, anyway!

    "Pimp my Balls" is trying to be too hip. "Freeballin' has a timeless quality.:p

    I think term "free ballin'" might just be American slang, though. Can anyone correct me on that.

    I like the use of the exclamation point in ZA!

    Can it be Freeballin! :)

    I voted for Freeballin'. Its a bit more serious and probably more relevant to a Pinball game. The others seem way too cheesy!

    Anyway maybe I'll finally get another pinball game from the App Store (I got Zen Pinball: Rollercoaster and absolutely hated it!)...:D

    Get Pinball Dreams and you will be happy.
    But this game here seems very interesting and beautiful.
    Voted for Freeballin' of course....this is just cool.
