    This is going to be a Pinball Sandbox game that allows users to design their own pinball layouts using provided components and you will be able to change colors, sizes and other features of the components.

    This is just a demo game to show off the play action and physics and let you give some feedback.

    @lamar. This offering has a more polished look and feel about it. Gives better play. Most enjoyable version of them all. You are certainly on the right track and am loving it. Well done!

    Thanks- I like this version because it is easy to design layouts and components for. The 3D version takes a lot more time but I will keep working on both. More layouts for Magnetron coming soon!

    Oh and leave a rating please.

    Wow! I love this! I'm a huge pinball fan. :) Did you use the physics engine to make this? I tried it myself, but for some reason ran into some issues with it, this is much smoother.

    Thanks! Yes this uses accurate physics for real pinball action. This will be a pinball sandbox builder when it is finished so you can create your own games. Visit my website for more games and info:

    That's pretty cool! I do see the same issues in your game as well, but it seems the size of the objects is why it doesn't mess up often, if at all. I'm sure there's other ways to overcome the issues in the Physics behavior as well. Currently, if your game lags, the ball can go right through the paddle. Because the paddles move so fast, and are so thin, it happens more often than in other cases. I think to overcome this, there'd have to be an invisible, stationary one added, and then you'd have to calculate angle and force based on the anglediff between the invisible one and visible, moving one

    It is a physics issue no one has yet solved. I am still working on it.

    Here is my latest layout for tourney play.

    Yeah, it's a pain. I've experienced the same issues when combining Multiplayer with Physics. I had to make a workaround for that too. The physics engine is pretty simple though, and the plugin allows for a lot of manipulation, so that's good. Also, that's pretty cool! I really like the way it looks!

    I'm inspired by this to eventually get around to making my Rogue-like Pinball concept a reality haha
