Talk about the Babe Ruth of virtual pinball games. This free-to-play sleeper hit isn’t just heftily proportioned—there are a frankly ridiculous number of tables to play on—it’s also a true great when it comes to smashing tiny balls about. While the core game won’t cost you anything, your wallet will get lighter if you decide to buy the variety of premium tables Zen Studios has cooked up. Which one’s the most desirable, you ask? It has to be the pack that’s focused on a certain Far, Far Away galaxy. The Star Wars Pinball Season One pack may cost $29.99, but with tables that offer everything from Ewokslaughtering action on Endor to frosty fun on Hoth, there’s some seriously appealing Force-tinged fan service going on here. But if you’d rather play on tables focused on Nikola Tesla than lovable rogue Han Solo, Zen’s more vanilla packs are priced at a more reasonable $9.99 and $14.99… you big Star Wars-hating mutant, you.
The game’s free tables won’t tide you over for long. When you feel the Force calling, your cash may embrace it.
