  • Summary: Enter the BATTLE MODE to challenge your friends (or the computer) in a never-before-seen way: by mashing two pinball tables into one! Your objective: get the ball through the opponent's side, and protect your own end at all cost. Collect power-ups on the way and fight your way to victory!

    Conquer the MISSION MODE by accomplishing special objectives, all built on top of special tables. Can you survive ball rains, break through walls or sharpshoot targets? TONS of single player and two player co-op missions included!

    Unleash your creativity with the TABLE EDITOR and craft your very own battle tables! It is the same tool that was used for creating the original tables, meaning you get access to EVERY element and feature.

    Two player modes are played using a single device, you and your friend controlling one side of the screen. So grab your iPhone, iPad or iPod touch and challenge your friends, family members, neighbors, cats and random by-passers for a game of PinWar!

    PinWar is a great game in one player, and a pretty good one with two. It’s a bit like renting a one bedroom flat with four friends – a little cramped, but great fun. Remember though – friends with small hands work best.

    Multiplayer and pinball have never gone hand-in-hand, but after playing PinWar it’s hard to wonder why it hasn’t happened sooner. Factoring in an insane amount of missions and stage structures to boot, and this is an experience worth pulling the plunger on. Just try not to be too competitive when crushing the opposition. Sometimes sore losers and fragile electronics don’t exactly mix.

    With ultra-competitive multiplayer, thoughtfully designed bonus challenges, and plenty of content to see, PinWar should appeal whether you're a fan of pinball or not. This is a superb offering, especially with mates.

    PinWar reinvents the classic arcade for iOS devices, and delivers some great multiplayer action that can also be enjoyed alone. The game is begging for online multiplayer based on the set-up, but is still a good game without it. PinWar is worth picking up for a brand new way to play pinball.

    PinWar isn't quite enough of anything. It's not quite pinball enough to please the pinball purists, and not quite competitive enough to really hook the adversarial among us. It is, however, a lot of fun.
