Zen Pinball 3D review

Enjoy playing a mean pinball in 3D

Zen Pinball review Pinball is the perfect download game. Even pinball wizards would baulk at forking out £30 for a game in which you press two buttons but £4.50 is good value.

Zen Pinball has already been released on PS3 and iPhone, but the 3D effects make the delightfully designed tables look even better on 3DS.

The huge castle on the Excalibur table kisses the sky and a statue rises impressively from the ground when you hit it in El Dorado.

There are so many nooks and crannies for your ball to explore and you get awards for hitting certain areas and fulfilling tasks.

Getting these and racking up high scores on the online leaderboards will keep you hooked for ages.

It's hard to think of a bad thing to say about it... okay, the loading times are a bit long.

    Agreed, loading times are the only bad thing, but when you've been playing a while, you don't even notice them !

    I swear only the golf 3ds download was the only original 3ds (no 3d classics) download for the eshop that got under 80%. Good start.

    I know there isn't lots to talk about, but you're online, surely you can give us a few more words to read with these eShop reviews!?
