UPDATE: Added a new layout to Magnetron and made the touch controls bigger for us fat finger people. I am still designing layouts and missions for this game if anyone wants to help I will pay for good layouts. PM me.

Magnetron Pinball is my latest Pinball Creation and it uses a flat perspective layout which is more compatible with people playing on a tablet or phone but still looks good on any computer.


This is still in early Beta but all the controls and scoring are working and it is set up for a tablet or mobile. I do not have a phone to try it on so if it has bugs on a certain phone let me know please.

I made the pinball machine in to a Robot that talks and gave it googly eyes just for effect.

This plays about as well as any real pinball game and flippers are very sensitive so you can catch, dribble and pass the ball very easily. Plunger is variable speed so you can lay the ball in hard and fast or slow and easy.

Controls are touch screen or arrow keys. I will add other controls and tilt feature later.

This is going to be a sandbox design so people can make and edit their own pinball games but for now it is just the one game so I can get feedback.

Enjoy the game!

I have my other Pinball Sandbox here for comparison:

@lamar

can you include a 'full-screen' button in the game?

i tried using the full screen button on the arcade but it does not seem to work with my iphone. at least not the way i expected it to.

I am not sure how to do that bit I will look in to it Harrio. I have it set for laptop and I will have a button to scale outer or inner so it will work on any system in an update.

Thanks- I will get the scaling fixed some time tomorrow. It works great on my tablet and laptop but I have no way of testing it for phones but I know scaling to inner or outer should work on any system but not sure how it will look.

Hi Harrio! I added a new layout and made the flipper and plunger control pads bigger. Flipper controls go all the way to top and bottom now. Give it a try and tell me what you think please.

I tried several times to load the new version and it only loads up to about 5% and freezes up. More arcade issues perhaps? I'm not sure. I'm looking forward to checking it out though.

It loaded slow the first time for me ans Scirra still having issues with arcade. Throwing errors on games and you have to reload.

The game is fine and it is a server issue they need to resolve.
