May 5, 2011 App Review: War Pinball HD
Pinball machines are not always easy to find in the real world these days, but War Pinball HD does a good job of recreating the experience. Playing this app is like a return to a 1980s arcade, with cheese-tastic war films like the Chuck Norris-starring Missing in Action and Charlie Sheen vehicle Navy Seals. Also included is the Academy Award winning Platoon. The movies are just background art for the pinball tables, though. The heart of the app is hitting the flippers (by touching the screen) and trying to get a high score. Fans looking for an authentic experience will also be happy to hear the app supports tilt — and will even warn you if you try to use it too much. The war theme might make this iffy for some families and very young kids, but at it’s heart, this is classic harmless pinball.
