Game Review: PinOut Pinball

I love a good pinball machine and have played several great mobile games in the app store. One that I reviewed awhile back was Ghostbusters Pinball which I still play on occasion. I was very intrigued to see the new PinOut app in my news feed recently and decided to give it a shot. I'm very glad I did and very excited to share it with pinball fans.

PinOut by developer Mediocre combines classic pinball with a continuous journey through a neon-soaked environment. The sound effects, bright lights, and retrowave soundtrack will definitely appeal to any '80s fan. Check out the official trailer...


PinOut is truly an unmatched pinball experience with so many great elements beyond classic pinball. The seemingly endless road map keeps the game moving forward in a very unique way. Instead of receiving a certain amount of balls at the beginning of the game, you are racing against the clock to advance as far as possible. Time dots on the board and mini-games give the player a chance to add more time and achieve longer distances. These mini-games are modeled after classic arcade games like Rad Racer, Asteroids, and Defender. There are also power-ups on the board which can slow or even stop time.

      

Best of all, PinOut is a FREE app and contains no annoying ads. Players do have the option to pay $1.99 to keep their progress and continue forward when time runs out. Check it out now on iTunes and Google Play.
