Pinball Deluxe: ReloadedPinball Deluxe Reloaded is a fantastic pinball game with several nicely-designed tables, fun unique game modes, and even equipable modifiers that let us customize each table.
We start by selecting which table to play on, swipe to launch our first ball, and then use the left and right-side flippers to keep the ball on the table and score as many points as possible.
As we play, we unlock modifies for each table, of which three can be equipped at a time. These modifiers enable new bonuses we can achieve, such as for example scoring 15k extra points if we hit five bumpers in one second.
But what really sets the game apart are the many unique game modes. One of these turns the table into a brick-breaker game with 50 levels, while others have us compete against four other players to score the most points and increase our competitive ladder rank. These matches are not real-time, but we do play against other people’s actual sessions.
Impressively, all 12 tables are uniquely designed, with distinct music and sound effects that match the theme of the table. The physics also feel nicely calibrated, creating an overall fun gameplay experience.
Pinball Deluxe Reloaded monetizes via a $6.99 iAP that unlocks the 6 paid tables and removes the ads that sometimes appear when we die. There are also a few incentivized ads, and iAPs for more consumable special balls that provide double points but also move twice as fast. We can also buy these balls for a currency we earn by simply playing. Overall, the monetization is relatively relaxed and you don’t need to buy anything to enjoy the game.
Overall, I believe this to be one of the best pinball games on mobile.
