    Zaccaria Pinball offers a ton of breadth, but despite its free entry point, trying to amass a complete collection of everything that's on offer is going to be really expensive stuff, and we can't justify recommending that.

    A very expensive way to play bad pinball.

    This is a nice pinball game with plenty of customisations and tuning possibility. And by "nice" i mean that it's graphically okay.

    This is a nice pinball game with plenty of customisations and tuning possibility. And by "nice" i mean that it's graphically okay.

    The physics are flawed. Auto-plunger WILL shoot your ball right between the paddles, slingshots WILL shoot your ball in the side alley, and most of the time, if your ball get caught by a toy, the toy will eject the ball... Right in between the paddles. You will most likely experience a play where all 3 of your balls get drained without even coming close to the paddles. Some tables have seemingly untouchable target (Lucky Fruit center target "A" by example).

    Campaign mode UI is a mess. There's no way to tell how much cost the upgrades because the font is so tiny that it's unreadable, docked or portable. Also the upgrade definitions makes almost no sense at all. It's not proper english for sure!
    Most of the requirements for completing the stages are unreadable because they're hidden under the "Free play" banner. There's even a stage where the hud is simply nonexistent in it's default position and only appear in half in the other positions.

    Also, some of the Campaing level will simply auto-complete by pulling the plunger and watching the ball go everywhere without having to actually play the game...

    And why can't i replay the campaign level i completed? Haven't i paid for that crap.

    The game is fun for a free game, but the very first penny you'll put into that game will make you question you choice.
