ZEN PINBALL 2

Zen Studios



It’s the machine that goes ‘PING!’.

Also variously ‘BLINK!’, ‘BLOP!’, ‘DING-DING-DING!’, ‘WHOOP-WHOOP!’, ‘BUDDA-DUDDA-DUDDA!’ and ‘BRAINZZZZZZZZZ!’.

Huh? Yep, Plants vs Zombies has gone all silver bally, but first a word from our sponsor... Or the sponsor of the Plants vs Zombies pinnie table. Well, the thing that runs the fucker, m’kay?

Yep, it’s Zen Pinball 2. Essentially the Zen Pinball we know and worship, given an interface overhaul that borrows heavily from Marvel Pinball, graphical tweaks, welcome physics twiddles (although some old tables are still bastiches with ball draininess) and even 3D.

“Yeah, but I’ve got 25 tables on the first Zen Pinball,” you might whine. Well buck up little camper, ’cos if you own ’em, they’re free to download for this! Yeah, you have to grab them again, but they’ve been tweaked, remember? Oh yeah, speaking of free, Zen Pinball 2 itself is. The cost is zip, nada, zilcho. You can even test any of the now 26 tables before flinging your hard-earned shekels Sonywards (thus allowing the realisation that Sorcerer’s Lair, in particular, is shite).

Right, PvZ table. It’s a pinnie table based around Plants vs Zombies. It features all the familiar sound and vision you know. It’s ace, so get it.

Sold yet? What if we added that if you buy it on the PS3 it’ll also work on your Vita? Plus even the tables you bought for the first PS3 Zen experience are free for the portable? Oh, and your high scores will hover somewhere in space so that they show up on both machiney-weenies? OK, so it’s a bit of a hassle sorting the tables initially, but once downed and installed it’s time for pinball heaven, population you.

Need we keep yabbering? Seriously, Zen Pinball was the hoopiest video pinball ever. With ZP2 it just got hoopier.

take me back to the start...
