Great pinball game!
"I am quite pleased! Just got it today. I like the clean, simple look. Very easy to enjoy. Nice to have the "Rock-n-play" mode -- just fun! Very worthwhile app."

"Classic pinball game, excellent graphics completely lifelike physics. Little Wing does great pinball games for PCs and Macs and it's nice to have them for iphones too now."
Your kids have been playing Pinball Tristan in Rock'n'Play mode all evening, while you've been itching to get your hands on it for a crack at Arcade. You keep checking the clock, watching their bedtime inch closer. They look tired, maybe they should turn in early tonight. As soon as they're tucked in, it's your turn to have fun!
Pinball Tristan is a worldwide best selling, award winning game, born for the Mac in 1991. You're going to have trouble putting this one down. It's cool 3D retro graphics, full-fledged pinball challenge, precise physical implementation of ball movement, is enough to make any diehard pinballer drool.
This application has two faces. Pinball Tristan remains true to its classic roots, incorporating a toy-like cabinet with an old style mechanical score drum that will evoke memories of the authentic joy and excitement you felt from playing the original pinball machines. At the same time, this is a new type of pinball with two modes.
Arcade Mode lets you experience real, challenging arcade pinball like it was meant to be played. This is the type of pinball game that you drooled over but couldn't afford when you were kid. Well, at only $1.99, you don't have that problem anymore.
If you're just starting out, try the Rock'n'Play Mode. Freely adjust the board angle by tilting your device, roll the ball in the opposite direction by tipping the device away from your body. Practice flipper control with a shelving angle or try a quick combo play. It's all lights, sounds and action yet is easier to play than Arcade.
This app can be all about technique, if you want it to be. Go ahead and experiment with the nudging function, the pass flip, reverse pass flip, return lane transfer, holding lift, dead flipper bounce, alley pass, slide and hit, live catch…do we need to go on, you get the idea. There are tons of different plays you can use to rock the pinball.
While all that action is going on, why not listen to some great, motivating music? Pinball Tristan lets you play your favorite tunes by using your Apple iPod function. So, you've got pinball action and your favorite music – what could be better, except maybe ranking number one in the World Competition?
Compare your game to others and track your ranking through the Game Center. See how your scores look.

FIVE STARS TO TRISTAN
Brings back fond memories. I loved this game from years ago and I'm so happy to have it again. While I have some great pinball games with hi-end graphics I find that I enjoy Tristan as much. Looks can lead one to think this game is without its challenges but players know that is not true. Do yourself a favor and give Tristan a try and you will be happy you did! Enjoy!!!
One final comment... The "pause" sensitivity is much too sensitive and needs to be adjusted. Sticking flippers are reminiscent of the original computer game and I can live with that. But the "pause" swipe does need to fixed.
Please update for 64 bit
I love this game. It's wicked fun to play on my iPhone and iPad. One of the best virtual pinball games ever. Now my devices are warning me that this game needs to be updated to 64 bit in order to remain compatible with future versions of iOS. Hey Littlewing, please update this game so that it will continue to work on future versions of iOS. Release it as a new version and charge me again, that's fine as long as I can keep playing Tristan on iOS.
Perfect as always - still the best pinball
I've enjoyed this game on several platforms for almost 20 years. Never change! I'm writing because I sometimes get a message that the game may soon become outdated for futre iOS versions. I hope this never is the case.
