  1. With some perseverance, and a little patience, players will find Flipper Critters offers a lengthy and challenging quest. The pinball action is suitable for all skill levels, yet tough enough to endure in the hands of pros.
  2. It is great to see decent quality games releasing at bargain-basement prices. Flipper Critters might not be the best pinball game on the market, but it is well worth the minimal investment.
  3. 65
    Whether this is an act of desperation or simply a profit strategy isn't clear…but at the very least, the price is right. It's not the best pinball game on the market, but it's honestly not a bad game if you're willing to put up with some of the quirky warts.
  4. The game isn't very good as an overall package, although the budget price might make it worthwhile for pinball enthusiasts looking for a couple of new tables to play.
  5. Combining a colourful cartoon world with the pinball table, Flipper Critters provides an interesting – if unspectacular – mixture of gameplay.
  6. A good attempt at trying something that is very original, but it appears the game has too many rough edges and unpolished gameplay. A bit more meat to the game and some more personality would have elevated this to a very solid title.
  7. At the end of the day it is really hard to categorize who this game is targeted at, but it is my honest opinion that hardcore gamers will want to stay away from this title and only those young or casual gamers on the go may find interest in it.
  8. If you're tired of the traditional pinball game then you might find Flipper Critters mildly amusing for its quirky style and large environments, but if you're looking for something more traditional with quick gameplay or point delivery system then you might want to look elsewhere.
  9. It may have been a good idea to combine a cute platform game with pinball, but the result will frustrate as much as entertain its target audience.
  10. As a pinball game, it's up there. As entertainment, it stares blankly at you and occasionally farts. Concrete-proof pinball belongs in the arcade.
  11. I have always loved well-executed kids' games and hated games that pander to kids to make a quick buck. This is neither - it is a very mediocre and forgettable little budget game that isn't something I would recommend for any child or adult.
  12. All in all, the game would have benefited from less character and more clarity. [Aug 2007, p.88]
  13. This game's promise falls as soon as you open the shrink wrap. Put this into the system, and the game only delivers disappointment. It is an original idea, although poorly executed that deserves some mention.
