Planet Pinball
This game is no longer available to purchase
Planet Pinball is a space-themed pinball simulator in which you must aim for the highest score you possibly can with 5 balls. The controls are simple - you keep the ball in play with the left and right flippers (using the left and right shoulder buttons on your Xbox 360 controller) and can "tilt" the table left or right (X or B buttons respectively) to give the ball a nudge in the right direction. Be careful when tilting though as two successive tilts will tilt the entire table and cause you to lose your current ball.
There are loads of ways of scoring points in the game - combinations of loops, ramps and targets will amount to big scores if shot at the right time. Can you accumulate the 500,000,000 points needed to top the high score chart? It can be done!
Planet Pinball was released for the Xbox 360 via Xbox Live Indie Games in December 2009, and remained on the Xbox Live Indie Games marketplace until it closed in October 2017. The game is no longer available for purchase, but if you purchased it when it was available, you can still download it.
