Monster Bash? and Gorgar? are currently available for the mobile versions of the Pinball Arcade! These two Williams? classics are great tables that we hope you all enjoy.

Monster Bash is one of our all-time favorites. The goal is to get Frankenstein, Dracula, and four other iconic Universal Studios Monsters? to form a band the likes of which has never been seen! With the help of the PHANTOM FLIP auto-play feature, you can let go of the flippers and watch the game complete your shots.

Gorgar was the very first ?talking? pinball machine. It has a magnetic Snake Pit that holds your ball captive as he thunders, ?Me got you?. The audio also features a heartbeat that races faster and faster as the action of the gameplay builds when the player is doing well.

Console Update

Add-on pack #1: Medieval Madness? and Bride of PinBot? as well as add-on pack #2: Circus Voltaire? and Funhouse? have been released on PS3 and PSVita in North America. On 360, the first three add-on packs have been approved and await the approval of the title update which should be coming very soon. The European release of the PS3 version has been held up in order to be synced with the PSVita version. They are scheduled to be released on July 11th. The add-on packs in Europe will be submitted once the PSVita has been approved. We hope to catch the European Pinball Arcade up to the North American version within the next month or two.

Important Note About the PS3 Update

In North America, add-on packs #1 and #2 have been released for the PS3 and PSVita!

We understand that some people are having issues with the latest update on PS3 of the Pinball Arcade. For those who purchased the launch pack and are having trouble, please follow these steps:

1. Re-download the "Pinball Arcade Demo" and the "Pinball Arcade Full Game Unlock" from PSN Games. You shouldn?t have to delete the old version of the game.
2. Install the "Pinball Arcade Demo". When you open the game the trial versions of the new tables should be in the menu.
3. Make sure to download the Add On Packs after you have re-downloaded the "Pinball Arcade Demo".

If this doesn?t work, deleting the old version and then following these steps should certainly work. You will not be charged a second time.

This is a onetime issue on PS3 due to a bug that we have fixed regarding PSN updates in our game. This is not an issue on the PSVita version. We apologize any inconvenience.

Mobile Update

Add-on pack #3 with Monster Bash and Gorgar has been released on Android devices, iPads, iPhones, and iPod Touches. An update has been submitted to Apple with Game Center support and will be released once it is approved. We are on schedule to release add-on pack #4 in mid-July.

We are very proud that Apple recognized our game in the App Store as the Free App of the Week! We hope this exposes many new people to our obsession with classic pinball. Help us spread the word about joining our pinball community on iOS. This is the perfect time to do so ? new players will get the paid version of the app (along with the great Tales of the Arabian Nights table) for free!

Thank You for Helping Us Add the Twilight Zone

Thanks to the dedication and generosity of our Kickstarter backers the Twilight Zone pinball project has been successfully funded! We are amazed and humbled by the tremendous outpouring of support the project received from all of you.

Amazingly our backers pledged substantially more than the amount required for the Twilight Zone licenses. As promised we will apply the excess towards the licenses for the fantastic Star Trek: The Next Generation table. We'll be launching a new Kickstarter project in the next month of two for this new table, and based on the head start we feel very confident it will be successful too. You guys are amazing!

We will soon begin the process of disassembling and capturing our new Twilight Zone table. We'll post some updates along the way to keep you apprised of our progress. As the launch date for the table approaches (hopefully November) we will contact you with details about getting your Rewards out to you.

We are incredibly excited to get going on this great table. Thanks again for your support!

Thank you very much for supporting the Pinball Arcade!
