Looks Pinball

Looksi Pinball was a game for iOS with a novel twist – it comes with a special housing in the shape of a pinball table, within which you place your iPad or iPhone. Buttons on the side control the flippers, a plunger launches the ball, and the scoreboard is reflected onto a back panel like you’d find on a real pinball table.

The game contains three tables – UFO, Zombie and Puppy – each with minigames to play if you complete the correct sequence in the pinball game.

Challenges came with designing and refining each table’s lanes and features, to make an enjoyable and playable game, as well as balancing various physics aspects – the weight of the ball, strength of the flippers, and so on.
