Hello,

I know this came out on the eshop yesterday and as a big fan of pinball fx2 was thinking about getting hold of this one for my daily commute. Unfortunately due to nintendo's half arsed approach to online features there is no demo to try it out.

Anyone on here picked it up and have any opinions on whether it is a good purchase?

Yup, it is well worth the £4.50 price tag - even with the dated tables.

The 3D may be a bit much though when travelling, and switching if off is a bit of a downer compared to other games, where the 3D is more of a novelty that I don't mind losing.

Edit - forgot to mention the two negatives I have with it :

1. Loading times are long - not ideal for a quick blast.

2. I had to buy £10 of credit on the 3DS - but there is nothing else I would want to buy on the store.

Thanks for the info.

can I use the remainder of the £10 credit to buy disware games or does it have to be the 3DS ones only?

It's also out on iOS devices I believe.

Weakened and bought this at the weekend. The 3D effect works really well and the pinball is up to zen's usual high standards. Definitely worth £4.50 and probably the best thing on the 3DS e-shop imho.

Had a bit of trouble adjusting to the much reduced screen size (in comparison to pinball fx) and found the 3ds triggers to be a bit shit for the flippers. Switched to using the d-pad and B button now which are much better placed.

In answer to my own question, you can use the remainder of your credit to buy dsiware games - I bought starship patrol which is a lovely tower defence game which have become quite addicted to...

It is a bit good this isn't it? I'm shit at it though.

Also got Super Mario Land 2 which is also quite spiffy. Never played it before so it's quite the treat.
