If you are a fan of arcade games and have grown up playing pinball then you are definitely going to find this gaming app up to your liking. PinOut is a fascinating game in which you get the chance to enjoy the classic arcade game, pinball, in a different style with lots of throbbing lights and amazing background music. You will get a similar gameplay experience in this version of pinball with levers to push a ball in the upward direction. However, instead of scoring points, you will have to proceed further into the game and clocking up as much distance as possible within a limited period of time. In PinOut the stakes are quite high and the environments you play in are breathtakingly beautiful.
You are provided with levers at various intervals throughout PinOut. Flipping the levers requires you to tap on them. It is your task to keep on moving the ball forwards and making it pass through various tubes. Arrowheads indicate the direction in which you have to hit the ball. There are two paths available for the ball to go at each interval. Some of the tubes can get you extra time if you manage to hit the ball through them. The number of seconds you gain depends on the numbers of lights your ball passes over. You start out with around 60 seconds on the clock and it keeps on counting down unless you get those extra seconds and prolong your stay in the game.
In this new pinball game, you are provided with checkpoints from where you can resume your progress if the clock runs down. Each checkpoint is located at a specific distance from the start and after you have passed a checkpoint the color of the environment around you changes. For instance, at the start the environment is colored in purple or pink but as soon as you pass through the first checkpoint the color changes to green. However, do keep in mind that the option of resuming your progress from a checkpoint is available only in the premium version of PinOut. You will have to make a one-time payment in real money in order to get the premium version of this pinball game.
PinOut offers up power-ups as you move further into the game. These power-ups appear when you hit a certain bulb. You are offered a choice of two power-ups and you need to select one of them. The power-up provides you the opportunity to enhance your progress in the game. These power-ups are available for a limited time only. You can use them for a short time period after which they become unavailable to you. In addition to power-ups, there are mini-games that become available to you as well in this pinball game. These mini-games appear when you manage to strike a bulb of a certain color. The mini-game offers you the chance to score some points and is played while the actual game is in progress. Once the mini-game ends, you get to continue playing PinOut again.
