Flipin’ eck! Zen Studios never fail to amaze, and when you’re wanting to dip into something a little different on Nintendo Switch then Zen have your back – Cue Jurassic World Pinball. Can you believe it’s been 25 years since we first experienced the epicness of the first Jurassic movie? Are you excited to see those terrifying beasts again, close up and in the palm of your hand? Well now’s your chance as Zen Studios latest pinball rip-roars our way with three tables dripping of Jurassic goodness.
I’m no pinball wizard, but after covering much of Zen’s fine tables on PS4, it’s now time to sample how they roll on the Nintendo Switch. Jurassic World Pinball is the latest release on the Pinball FX platform. Pinball FX3 is the free to download package that lets you delve into Zen Studio’s pinball games over at the Nintendo eStore.
First off Jurassic World Pinball comes big footing our way. This is an iconic table. An eyeful of everything that made the franchise a belter. A menacing T-Rex and a bunch of opened mouth raptors swiping at the silver ball and spitting it back at you give an instant fix of what Jurassic Park was all about. Racking up big scores is an easy and highly enjoyable feat. Table features include playing in flim order, triggering the Mosasaurus Feed Show and banging out big scores in the Pteranodan Mulitball. Jurassic Park Pinball delivers much of the same. Enclosed within an electrified fence, the tables bright yellow flippers and bold logo light up this one. Hearing the dailog and seeing such dinosaurs roar into action makes for a perfect Jurassic fix, pinball style. With an SUV launching the sliver ball into action, Jurassic Park Pinball Mayhem throws out another visually striking and highly entertaining table. The T-Rex, the Stegosaurus and the raptors all make an appearance. The table layout is busy, exciting and yet clear. As with all of the tables avaible on Zen Pinball, the 8 different views to toggle through help zoom in on certain areas where that action is that you need to scrutinise. Zen know how to rince oodles of pleasure out of a table and this in no exception, it’s big, bold and beautiful. All sit perfectly on the Switch and even better in the palm of your hand.
Zen Studios bring a mammoth amount of pleasure to Nintendo Switch with Jurassic World Pinball. Suited to quick blasts on the go or lengthy battles on the big screen, everything feels and looks luxurious. Playing on Switch or PlayStation 4, Zen Studios continue their reign at the top. All we need now is the KISS Pinball table and it’s a straight 10 from me guys.
