Summary

For what should be a fun but short game, Steampunk pinball is actually a deep and rewarding game. It has just one table and doesn’t look all that but here I am many hours later and still learning new things. The bonus stages are excellent and I just really enjoy the whole game. In short a must for pinball fans and people who like time waster killers.

Gaming since the Atari 2600, I enjoy the weirdness in games counting Densha De Go and RC De Go as my favourite titles of all time. I prefer gaming of old where buying games from a shop was a thing, Being social in person was a thing. Join me as I attempt to adapt to this new digital age!
