As the saying goes “Old is Gold” Pinball was the one of the first arcade video games. It still lives on in the hearts of game lovers all around the world, that is one reason why its still alive in the 21st century- after all, when game makers can get rid of all the clunky pieces of wood and springs, it makes the perfect portable game. Most users can find an iteration of the game in their platform – Android being no exception. With the plethora of such games, it can be a bit difficult to identify the best of the lot. To help the discerning pinball wizard to get his game on, here’s three of the best pinball apps on the Android Platform.


Pinball Deluxe is a game that delivers options – a surprising thing considering it’s a game of stopping a ball from falling into a hole. However the game manages to give players a whole lot of choices. There’s the varied tables, all of which are large affairs, which present different challenges each time. There’s also the little tweaks a player can do for his comfort; users can change vibration, responsiveness, and other game output/input. It’s not as graphically impressive as the other two here, but it makes up for it in sheer playability.




Kick Off Pinball pushed the edge of technology more. Presenting a 3D view and accompanied by a wonderful soundtrack by South African band Parlotones, the game is a soccer-themed romp. It supports multi-ball/single ball play, increasing difficulty for the player if he wants it. The physics and graphics are both very impressive. A must for any soccer fan and pinball fanatic.



We’ve seen Pinball HD before – it first came out on Apple devices, after all. nVidia Tegra Partners has managed to port the award-winning game to the Android platform several months ago. With impressive 3D graphics and responsive controls, this is what every user will want to play on their top-of-the-line Android tablet, just to take the GPU on it to the limit.

So, to all vintage gamers who had spent long hours at the pinball machine trying to beat the highscores. Well now they can relive their childhood thanks to Android.
