Taste the rainbow
(You’re thinking of skittles, not pinball, you idiot. And even then, not the right kind of skittles. Still, I suppose at least we should be grateful it wasn’t a Tommy line, like everyone else who’s ever reviewed any kind of pinball-related game at any time in the last 20 years. I mean, do they think it’s THE FIRST TIME ANYONE’S EVER THOUGHT OF IT or something? Jesus. – Ed)
Bargain-alert time, chums. The fantastic Pinball HD is one of the App Store’s top three pinball games, offering as it does three top pinball games. Or at least, one top pinball game* and two pretty okay ones. But anyway. This used to be three separate pinball games played in uncomfortable portrait mode, until the advent of the iPad and then the iPhone 4′s retina display made it possible for it to be all pretty in landscape mode and for developers Gameprom to put all three games into one app. Which would probably have been possible before too if they’d really wanted to, but anyway.
The point we’re trying to make is, Pinball HD is really good, and is now on sale for a ridiculously low 59p (99c) for either the iPad or iPhone 4 versions, which are normally £1.79 ($2.99) and £1.19 ($1.99) respectively. Even though they’re the same game.
Although now that the newest iPod Touches have Retina screens too, we’d imagine it’ll work on those as well. And although there are two separate versions, we’re not sure what happens if you run the iPhone one on the iPad. But we do know that the iPad one definitely WON’T run on the iPhone, so don’t buy that one. Unless you have an iPad, obviously. Unless you have an iPad AND an iPhone, in which case you might as well get the one that’ll run on both. If it will. And definitely DEFINITELY don’t buy the three individual games, which are inexplicably still on sale for 59p each. Man, this got complicated.
