From the makers of BAFTA-winning Lumino City comes INKS.

INKS updates pinball for a new generation. It combines the joy of pinball with skilful tactical challenges, and allows you to create wondrous works of art as the ball smashes around the canvas.

Blocks of colour burst like beautiful fireworks across the surface, building up in vivid layers and recording a visual history of your game as you perfect your score.


- Beautiful and elegant design
- Over 100 unique tables to play
- Perfectly balanced gameplay
- Each canvas tells the story of your game
- Share your favourite levels and high scores

If you're enjoying INKS and want to extend the experience further you can also buy Powerups - slow-mo 'Precision' aim, and the 'Stopper' to prevent you from losing the first precious Gold Ball.

“Amazing looking... vibrant, full of life. Are we excited about this.” Pocket Gamer

Inspired by artists like Miro, Matisse, Jackson Pollock and Bridget Riley, each table becomes a unique work of art, sculpted by the player as they fire an ink covered ball around the canvas.

With State of Play’s creative flare and skill at crafting beautifully elegant gameplay, INKS offers something new: art and gameplay as one, for everyone.

Just what I need

State of Play comes up with some real unique and beautiful games. Relaxing but challenging at the same time. Meditative in a way, if I can use that. I’ve had KAMI for years and every time I upgrade phones and the game resets, I’m learning it again (though not all over again). Just found out about this game, Inks, and it fits the same bill. Very pretty. Nonjudgmental (i.e. no timer, *I* set the pace; you can reset and try again). I just scanned a long review where someone thought this was boring. (People write movie reviews like that, too. They see a picture about real life and then bash it when it’s not like Star Wars.) Anyway if you’re looking for the game equivalent of “get it done or you’re dead” then, yeah, it is “boring.” But there are tons of games out there that will make you sweat. I don’t need that or I don’t always need that. Sometimes I just need to **be**, and this is a great game for that. I appreciate it for the game it is. Thanks for designing it.

Elegant & Beautiful!

This game is beautifully designed, and incredibly colorful and enjoyable! It's hard to find a digital pinball game that is actually worth playing over a real pinball machine, but this app offers a unique twist with splashes of color and simple but addictive "power-ups" that make the game feel fresh and enticing with each new level unlocked. Though not an incredibly complex game in concept or mechanics, the pinball boards do get more challenging and unique as one plays through the levels and the music and colors are meditative and relaxing!

At the time of writing this review, this is a free app of the week - so it's definitely worth a try! It also somehow feels like the perfect Fall game - simple, relaxing, and colorful - so I applaud Apple on their choice for this September week for free game app of the week! 👏🏻👏🏻

Good FREE game

It's great for relaxing or if you're just bored waiting for the bus stop or something like that. The sound effects are relaxing, the colors are pretty neat, and it's over all an artistic concept. This app is great but not worth buying for it. I'm sure a lot of work was put into it, hence the purchase requirement they placed on it, but it's WAY too simple to put a price on it. A plus on it being an app you purchase is that it doesn't become an ad frenzy when you try to enjoy a simple game. That's something to consider as well for their reason on putting a price on this. Left flipper could use some work, at times it doesn't register my clicks, but so does a regular pin ball machine at an arcade at times. The struggle never ends!!! Haha
