We first saw Pinball Deluxe land on BlackBerry way back at WES 2010, and we're excited that today Pinball Deluxe HD is now available for the BlackBerry PlayBook. I'm a sucker for a good pinball game and this one surely does not disappoint. While the original version only provided one table, Pinball Deluxe HD brings along 5 that include Brix, Wild West, Carnival, Space and Underwater.

Features:

  • Gorgeous graphics
  • Great gameplay
  • Very precise physics
  • Minigames to play on the matrix display
  • Each table has a unique play style
  • All the elements you expect from a pinball game: nudges, ball captures, multi balls, mini games and some unique variations
  • Creative use of all the features of the device to bring you a better pinball experience: vibration, sounds effects, shaking.

Pinball Deluxe HD is available for the BlackBerry PlayBook now for $4.99 in BlackBerry App World. Hit the link below for more.

Are they sure about that last part in the features regarding "VIBRATION"?

•Creative use of all the features of the device to bring you a better pinball experience: VIBRATION, sounds effects, shaking.

I thought the playbook doesn't support vibration. Mine has never vibrated before.

I was wondering about hte Vibration too?! Must be they mean graphically gives a vibration appearance... or they used the same description as for the handheld lol

Is it worth the £4.99 we pay here in the UK though? I'm sorely tempted, as ever, to expand my Playbook games library, but the screens make the tables look quite basic. If I'm going to keep purchasing apps until RIM sort out the exchange rates then I want to know it's worth it!

I'm in England and we have to spend £4.99 - about seven dollars! Why is everything in the app store the same amount in pounds as it is in dollars, so we have to pay a third more?

Really!?

Anyway, the game is the best,but im with everyone else here. I`ve had my Playbook since launch and its never vibrated before.

@ fnord, economies of scale in its simplest form is one of the reasons for the lower cost on Android and possibly even lower on iOS.

More potential buyers = higher returns and more competitive price if you can get enough people to buy.

Lower potential buyers = higher price to accomodate the uncertainty of potential sales.

Does anyone know how this game was coded? Is it a native app? Is it smooth, graphically intense/pleasing, as what we've seen from Gameloft, Union, and EA?

Edit: Never mind; there is a video of the game for Android here on their website http://www.pinballdeluxe.com/ Looks very smooth.
