While game have a pinball word in its name, it has almost no connection to well-known game machines - there are no rubber rings and flippers and no metal ball to play. Instead player have some amount of water on a metal field with obstacles and special points for exits and coloring. It could not be obvious from the description but exits only accept liquid of specific color so most of the time player's task is to split the water to several parts, dye it and move to the exit avoiding black holes and open field boundaries. All movement is performed by tilting the game field with Siri Remote or game controller.
Liquid Pinball starts with very simple tasks with simple colors and very few moving obstacles. As long as player proceeds to the game it becomes harder and harder requiring a lot of patience and good concentration skills to solve the levels. While it looks like a simple arcade in the beginning, at the middle of the game it is much like a puzzle with specific riddles and clues. Each puzzle includes directions on how to play. Also solving a level with a shortest time results in a rewards - special trinkets and five of these could be used to skip any level in the game.
"Liquid Pinball is a hybrid game that took best of both arcade and puzzle genres," states RunServer founder, Alexei Garbuzenko. "Liquid Pinball is perfect for kids, adults, and anyone seeking a new and exciting challenge for their reflexes and mind. We tried to recreate air of high tech themed arcade machines that is also cultivated by the music and realistic fluid physics. We believe players will need to seriously rack their brains and boost their reflexes to work their way through each level of Liquid Pinball. Apple TV platform proven itself mature and very stable for casual gaming. There were plans to release the game on tablets and phones first, but later we decided to shift the gears and it took only several weeks to polish the game and make it ready for TV and game controllers. We also joined AppLovin Apple TV contest in San Francisco with this game and it was selected as one of top ten finalists."
