Tables are great; UI is awful

I love the fact that these are all REAL tables you can play in real life. It’s great to be able to learn all of the intricacies of each table and then actually play one in an arcade. I can only imagine the amount of time and work that must go into producing one table, let alone dozens.

That said, the UI is just... terrible. I hate to say it like that, because surely there are people who worked hard to develop this, and I mean no disrespect to them. But it looks and acts like a port from an old PC game or something—it feels nothing like a modern iOS app. The design is very dated, and the interface is often unresponsive or difficult to navigate. When the last UI update was announced, I was thrilled that it would finally be improved. Unfortunately, after many months of waiting, I can honestly say it’s been a letdown.

I’d open and recommend this app far more if it got the complete UI overhaul it truly deserves. It doesn’t need to be fancy—the tables are the star of the show here. In fact, I’d personally prefer if the UI was on the simple and clean side. It just needs to work. Intuitive navigation, responsive controls, simple configuration.

Thank you, Farsight, for the wonderful work you’ve done to preserve these great tables. Please don’t let an otherwise great app (and service to the pinball community) be ruined by a poor UI.

Developer Response ,

Hello jbondo,
Thank you very much for your thoughtful review. We are working on the UI still and it will continue to improve. Our iOS developer has been working very hard to implement UI developments that work great on some devices but unfortunately then fail to meet the same standard on others. We really do appreciate your compliments here. Thanks for sticking with us so far. Our hopes are that further changes/improvements will earn us a couple more stars back in the future. Please have a nice day. :)

Owned titles now gone?

Today I opened up the app to play the AC/DC game which I purchased quite a while ago. It would not complete downloading. I understand removing free games when a license expires but I paid for this! I really would like to hear the response of Pinball Arcade as to how they justify this when what instead on the website indicates that if we paid for a table it is ours permanently. Answer please.

I love the graphics and the feel of the games. I appreciate the history given about each game including the creation dates. However I can’t give it five stars because a feature I paid extra for now no longer works. There is a set of special balls that were introduced years ago for an additional cost. These include an eight ball, smiley face, two star trek deigns, an eyeball and several brightly colored ones. Since deleting then reinstalling the app the balls are still there but their graphics have all but vanished. They are simply chrome pinball with a faint design available. They stink. If they were free I couldn’t complain but since I did purchase them I would really like them returned in full detail as they exist on my other versions of the game. Please fix and update!

The tables available in this app are exact replicas of actual tables found in arcades everywhere! And the instructions for each game are provided in a format that is just like having a professional player point out the various features and scoring. I have found this to be extremely helpful for my real world play! At the time of this review, 20 of the available 99 games in this app are actually in the arcade that I frequent. Having access to the detailed instructions definitely gives me an advantage in competitive play. The instructions are organized in such a way that it is easy to get to specific instructions in short order during actual tournament or league play. customer service is extremely responsive to concerns. I highly recommend this app whether you are only going to play on your device or, and especially if you play real world pinball!
