Okay not for me but the original game must have sold enough for a sequel.

I picked up the original a few years ago during a steam sale. It was a decent game and I did like the premise of the different character classes being represented by the size & characteristics of their ball. There was a story as well that seemed like pretty typical rpg fare. But in the end it’s still pinball…which can only hold my interest for so long. It was well done game though, so I would probably recommend checking it out if you are a pinball fan.

I also liked the idea, but was too bad at pinball. So the second one will be a pass by me.

Man, I love both of these things on their own (pinball and crpg's), yet as a hybrid mashed together, I'm not sure I'd care for it. I'll hold judgement and see what folks say when it's released.

Yup, like Fluent says there's an earlier version. I had a lot of fun with it. It's a short game though but you can probably find it for very cheap.

The idea seems kind of fun in it's own right. Never been much of a pinball player, though I did spend a lot of cash on "The Addams Family", "Creature from the Black Lagoon" and a couple of other machines back in the early 90s.

Although, the tables in this game looks pretty dull. Not something I would pick up.

I played the first game and enjoyed it. Had fun playing it on the weekend morning while having coffee. It is a very casual game.

I loved the first game, but at one point it was somewhat too difficult for me.
I love fresh ideas, and to me, it was one.
