Great fun but needs an update.

I’m so old that there aren’t very many pinball apps left. This is the only authentic pinball program that I can find in the Apple Store. This one’s gravity formulas are good but they’ve put some unnatural perks/programs that mess up the natural feel of playing and winning. I’d recommend that they leave out any agendas and make it perfectly natural. It might work with an easy, medium and perfectly natural setting. It is impossible to develop skills without this. Sooner or later many players out there will discover the joy of pinball. Ramp it up Triston; it might an opportunity to resurrect a blast from the past that only relies on skill develpment. Don’t make us wait too long and there will be millions of folks out there that want the old feel of pinball.

Fun and challenging

Little Wing is an amazing company. Their pinball tables have been a staple of the Mac platform for two decades and they keep finding interesting storylines to give their games a lot of personality. Tristan was their first game, and they've re-invented it in glorious 3D. The iPhone and iPad versions are great little pocket games that have the feeling of a child's toy and provide bite-size fun on-the-go. This Mac version has a higher level of realism and detail than the portable versions, but still maintains the whimsy that Little Wing is famous for.

I'd love to see Apple implement Game Center for the Mac. Tristan is a natural for competing with other players. Without Game Center, I'd like to see an option for multiple players (as on Little Wing's other tables for Mac). A choice of table views would be welcome too, rather than just the top-down view.

But if you like pinball, Tristan will certainly satisfy your craving.

NOTE: With High Sierra, Tristan will no longer start. The app will launch and the menu screen appears, but the keyboard and mouse seem to be disabled within Tristan's window.

Great fun - yesterday and today!

I remember Tristan as the first pinball game I played on my old Mac LC III. When I saw it on the app store, I immediately downloaded it to see if it held up. It's great - same sounds and tricky, realistic physics. Nobody does pinball like littlewing! All I can hope for is that they will do a port of Loony Labyrinth that doesn't require rosetta - I have never seen a pinball game as good as LL.
