[prMac.com] Toyama, Japan - Announcing that LittleWing Co. Ltd., the developers of Pinball Tristan, has released an exciting new product for iPhone, iPod touch and iPad users. The application is an iOS launch of the legendary award-winning, classic Mac game of the same name. Known for its overwhelming quality, Pinball Tristan combines 3D retro graphics, good old-fashioned pinball and a variety of interesting new twists that will challenge even hardcore gamers. The app's game center gives players access to world competition, and the Facebook and Twitter features let them brag.
Long time Mac owners will be thrilled to hear that the legendary Pinball Tristan is now available for their iDevices.
Pinball Tristan, originally released for Macs in 1991, has won a host of awards, including Best Simulation 1991 of Software Publishers Association (USA) and Game Hall of Fame 1992 of MACWORLD (USA).
The Mac application was wildly popular, thanks to the quality of graphics and gameplay, which went above and beyond player expectation. While developers kept the same standard of quality when creating the iOS version of the game, they did not just plunk the original software into an app. They ensured that the mobile version offered as much quality and challenge as the original game and LittleWing is famous for.
Now, Pinball Tristan players get more of their senses treated, with very authentic, retro 3D graphics that provide an original pinball machine look and feel, the tingling excitement of good old-fashioned pinball, the challenge of interesting new twists and the ability to listen to their iPod music while playing. Put all that together with ultra precise ball and flipper movement and you have a very addictive game platform.
If you're wondering what could be so challenging in a game of pinball, consider the following techniques: nudging, pass flip, reverse pass flip, return lane transfer, holding lift, dead flipper bounce, alley pass, slide and hit, live catch...you get the idea. There are lots more maneuvers and two game modes to keep even hardcore players interested.
The game is exciting and suitable for all ages of players. The younger crowd may view Pinball Tristan as a fun new challenge but since the app so closely replicates the original pinball games of the 1970's, people who grew up during that time will love this application, as well. The gameplay and graphics are better and Pinball Tristan is far more affordable than the portable pinball games that many kids had to do without because of the cost.
Another interesting fact about Pinball Tristan is that has been developed by the same company that created Crystal Caliburn for Mac and Windows. Crystal Caliburn is a long running mega hit and the third pinball game developed by LittleWing. Devoted pinball players worldwide continue to associate the company with that game because of its popularity since 1993. It has been favorably reviewed by the New York Times and Washington Post and LittleWing plans on releasing an iOS version in response to player requests.
