New UI awful,slow, confusing horrid ball icons with 80's shareware graphics. An email from Farsight confirmed they will not return to the old UI so we are stuck with it. Coke admitted when they screwed up the flavour of our favourite drink but Farsight won't admit it has made a mistake This was the best pinball game across multiple platforms period & I for one was a huge fan, to be fair the tables when you can find them still are. This app is what pinball enthusiasts want's, real world vintage tables we can play anywhere but the new UI is like a kids school project! Poor graphics, confusing, slow execution, Where is my purchased table's now? PC version is no better. The forums are full of complaints, with some even asking for refunds, please Farsight listen to your customers
I loathe this new user interface. I'm so unhappy with it! I understand that frequent changes are a necessity in the ever-evolving mobile app world, but this is an unnerving contrast to the boisterous, gritty feel of the previous. I don't feel like I'm in an old arcade anymore - this is a cold, modern interface whose polish has turned me right off. I had initially written a scathing review, and since have returned after considered the changes properly - I still just hate it. I've spent $100 on tables, and now when I activate this app and get beyond the welcome screen, I just... turn it off. Yes, I am well aware that arcades are long gone, but... this was a refuge for me. Now? It's just another app. I'm very sad right now. No more tables for me. Not until this abysmal wreck is changed again. Bad form, guys.
Bad, Bad Interface... Find Better Pinball Elsewhere... The expression, "If it ain't broke then don't fix it..." is lost on Pinball Arcade. What was once a very serviceable interface is now a buggy mess with an annoying musical / vocal soundtrack to boot. The player shouldn't have to dig out the tables they already own, rather like old interface they should all be grouped together. DO NOT DOWNLOAD as is now an irritating waste of time. BOYCOTT coming Dr Who table until they revert to a workable version of their app... GO ELSEWHERE!!!
The death of a great game Until June of 2016 Farsight did some really great things.... Then they brought this 1990s version of a UI. Even if the tables are great you can't get to them without being frustrated. What makes it worse is the arrogance of the company sticking with this atrocity and giving those of us that have spent $100 on the app a huge middle finger. There have been 3 or 4 updates since this "new" UI and nothing is any better... I'm still faced to listen to the vocals blaring as I stare at a menu that is illogical.
New interface is HORRIBLE!! Guys, you took a classy interface, and made your emulator look like some ugly cheap knock off! WHY!!? I can't see my purchased tables in its own list, AND the new icons for each table are small and hard to read, and I don't care about selecting some goofy colors for balls each time! You're emulating a classic era where the ARTWORK and nostalgia is part of the experience. PLEASE allow an option to toggle back to the original interface. This is like a bad April Fool's joke, not one thing is better!
Shame The tables look amazing but if you've played or own any of the original machines you'll quickly become aware that the physics, accuracy and predictability are very off for most of the tables. The tables should be presented in an utmost state of fine tuning, predictability and accuracy in shot both from flipper and plunger. (we are after all PURCHASING these tables)
- New User Interface added to the Pinball Arcade!
An amazing pinball game with the most realistic ball physics and superb visuals.
