  1. Virtually every aspect of Flipnic's presentation is both wonderfully fresh and original. From the beautiful menu designs to the dry yet sweet voiceovers and the well orchestrated BGM tracks, the atmosphere generated is quite unlike anything else experienced.

    If you just want to have a lot of fun batting a ball bearing around fantastic locales, then Flipnic should be 20 bucks well-spent.
  3. Sure, the bizarre and quirky style might not be to everyone's taste, but if it is possible to create a revolution in the pinball genre, then Flipnic is the game to do it and is certainly worthy of your attention.

    Granted, the game can be horribly frustrating and it's still constrained by the fairly simple nature of pinball, but Flipnic sets a new standard nonetheless. [July 2005, p.78]

    Calling Flipnic a pinball game is a lot like calling "Grand Theft Auto" a game where you steal cars - it just doesn't convey the breadth and variety of the gameplay. [Aug 2005, p.83]
  6. Forgive me while I get the whiny part of this review out of the way first: This game is too hard.

    Flipnic deserves a harsh score. The third level becomes impassable, or at least takes up too much time to be fun anymore. I'm a hardcore gamerFlipnic deserves a harsh score. The third level becomes impassable, or at least takes up too much time to be fun anymore. I'm a hardcore gamer and I can't really figure it out. At some point you have to give up on the game. The graphics and sound are great. They didn't test the play logic enough and it doesn't make enough sense to be a good game. I wish objectives would have been more straightforward to clear and pass on to the next level. I think the difficulty is too high for a pinball game to still be fun. Not worth it in the long run.
