Happy to say that the latest beta represents a major improvement (released 9/19/18). Three physics options:
Zen Mode: Traditional Zen style “fantasy” physics. Some cool (and actually tasteful) 3D Zen effects. The castle on MM, for example, explodes with fireball animations.
Arcade Mode: Simulated real world physics. Think slope settings equivalent to what you’d find in a local pizza joint. Way harder and more true to life than TPA, by a long shot! Easy to learn tough to master.
Tournament Mode: Steeper slope for sure. Perhaps bordering on too steep (I’d rather see them err on the side of too hard!). Not sure if they widened outlanes and increased sling sensitivity.
I’m a VPX guy, but I’ll certainly be buying all these new Zen Williams tables. Zen is doing a fantastic job of listening to feedback. They’re cool guys. I like they’re physics (the “Deep Engine”) even more than Pro Pinball Timeshock — and those are tough to beat in digital pinball. High marks!
