3 out of 5

PROS

  • Easy to use control scheme, tap left or right of screen.
  • Great and new concept for gameplay (mixing defence style game with pinball).

CONS

  • The gameplay is a bit too slow and not exciting enough to keep you playing.
  • The game features a limited amount of sound effects, which is not what you want to hear in a pinball game.
  • The game lacks content and diversity; three levels will not keep you entertained for long.

VERDICT

In the effort of trying to bring a unique mix of game genres together, Undead Attack! Pinball unfortunately falls short and remains a game that is not worth buying.

Undead Attack! Pinball is a pretty self explanatory title; it’s a pinball game with a zombie theme. But players have more than just a highscore to worry about, as they must also make sure that they protect a gate at the bottom of the screen against the increasing number of advancing zombies. Players will need to use the game ball itself to defeat the advancing zombies and defend the gate from being destroyed.

Players launch their ball by dragging down the slider and releasing and tap either side of the screen to use the appropriate bumpers to keep the ball in play. The gameplay is a bit different due to the mixed gameplay as players have an unlimited amount of balls and can purchase upgrades to make zombie defence that much easier.

The 3D visuals look quite well done but the levels themselves seem too basic for a pinball machine. The sound is limited to zombie cries and some machine sound effects but not the assaulting and vibrant slew of sound effects you’d expect from a pinball game. The game is single player only, featuring a campaign mode with three levels to play through.

On a whole, Undead Attack! Pinball seems held back by its slow game speed and limited content. It’s easy enough to play and the mix of defence and pinball styles is a good idea but neither aspect is done well enough to make the game really enjoyable. If it comes down to it, try the lite version to see if it’s something you could enjoy but otherwise you might want to bury this title and just move on.
