Hello,

My name is Tyler, and I recently made a cute and simple pinball game called Pinball Fantastic. I am releasing it August 31st, 2018 for iOS and Android.

To start I want to share my appreciation for pinball, and I know I will never be able to recreate the experience of playing a physical machine. With that being known, as a video game designer I sought out ways to both merge my love and pinball and video games. I wanted to make a game that would encourage younger generations or people who would not traditionally be exposed to pinball a chance to check out a stripped down idea of what pinball can be.

I started work on Pinball Fantastic about a year ago, while I was working at a grocery store full time in San Francisco, Ca. I have since moved to Oregon and finished the first iteration of the game.

Gameplay footage:

Any help or support is greatly appreciated! I'll make sure to post again when the game is out.
The game is currently available for pre-order on the AppStore, and will be available for both iOS and Android for $0.99 on 8/31/18.

Thank you,

Tyler Jones

Congrats!
I'll spend a buck on that!

Thank you! It's so nice to have some support!

Looks great man! I love the animated and pixel art graphics. Hope it does well for you and you can make more.

#5 7 months ago

Thank you FatPanda! That's the goal. Make enough with this to make more in a shorter time. If not it's get a real job and keep making games. Just takes a lot longer the second way. Either way I'm making games though, lol.

Looks great...I'm in!

#7 7 months ago

Yay! I'll make sure to post again when it's released.

Here's the link to the pre-order page for iOS in the meantime.

Good for you! Keep at it and make some exciting stuff! I'll be following your progress. Good luck.

#9 7 months ago

That makes me so happy to hear! Loving the support!

You hooked me with that Arkanoidian level. I can skip my $1.50 coffee stop one morning and i'm 50 cents in the green.

Edit...a galaxian and asteroidian type level would be awesome!

#11 7 months ago

I'm in for a buck

#12 7 months ago

Definitely worth 99cents, my 5 year old daughter will love it

#13 7 months ago

Nice job with the game - I'll be buying on its release 8/31. Good luck w/ your venture!

#14 7 months ago

Seriously for a buck..... Someone who is willing to develop anything pinball related has my money

#15 7 months ago

Ya that breakout game has me sold

#16 7 months ago

You all are so awesome! Thank you for the loves!

#17 7 months ago

Pinball and iOS - two of my favorite things ... I’m definitely in at launch!

#18 7 months ago

In for sure!

#19 7 months ago

Thank you! Just donated $5 to pinside because I got locked out of my own thread, lol. Figured it was worth it considering the amount of support I have been receiving!

Thank you again!

#20 7 months ago

Preordered! Looks great.

#21 7 months ago

Yay! Thank you!

#22 7 months ago

I cant find it for Android yet. Just ios in apple store.

#23 7 months ago

Looks fun and colorful! My daughters will dig it for sure.

#24 7 months ago

Tons of Respect for your Work!

More than many, you created something with Ambition and effort!
It doesnt get any better than that to start!

#25 7 months ago

I’m in...looks cool! Not to hijack the thread but the goldfish blast pinball game app is fun and good for kids too if you haven’t played it yet.
Thanks for letting us know!

Here's the link for GooglePlay: https://play.google.com/store/apps/details?id=com.LamestarGames.PinballFantastic

The game isn't live on either iOS or Android right now (unless you live in Canada or Australia), but will be on the 31st. You can only pre-order the game for iOS.

Thank you so much! I'm glad it shone through, and I'm not done. This is only the beginning!

Yay, glad to hear that! I definitely took the game towards the simpler side. The first game I ever made was way too hard for most my friends that tested it, and I basically went the opposite direction this time.

I'll have to check this one out! I think I may have seen a youtube video or two while researching for my game.

How hard was the hard one? Do you have a vid to share?

#31 7 months ago
Quoted from LamestarGames:

I just paid, but it’s still a Pre order in Canada.

#32 7 months ago

In IOS the buy tab is not active so i'm not sure how to pre-order. I will check on Friday when it goes live.

This video has no sound but you get the idea of gameplay.

If you scroll to the bottom of the page below, there is a game called Project Dolphin. Not sure how updated each platform is, but there should be a windows, mac, and android links available. If you play shmups it might not be that hard. If you don't know what that means it will probably be pretty hard. That being said you can complete the game in 5 - 10 minutes if you are good enough.

Sorry should have been more specific. It is available for Android, in Canada and Australia. iOS should be available everywhere, but pre-order only.

I did a soft launch in those two countries to make sure my Google Play stuff was working.

Interesting. I am not sure either. This is my first full blown mobile release so I am rolling with the punches. I have received notices that people pre-ordered it on iOS so I thought it was working properly.

Yes Friday!

Cool game! You should consider building a game to run on the p3 platform. That would def. meld your coding with a physical platform - free to try. I don’t think the coding/testing playground is public yet but you should hit up Gerry at multimorphic if it sounds interesting..

Great work, I'm in.

Just curious, how many hours of work, what dev tools/frameworks?

Tap all the creatures on the Title screen till you've captured them all. Gonna make this a little more apparent in an update.
