People have already been enjoying the very classic pinball games in video games even before iOS devices were introduced to the market. With the iPad, you can enjoy these classic games without even going out to the arcade or setting up bulky gaming consoles. Here is a compilation of the best pinball games for the iPad.
1. Pinball HD for the iPad ($1.99)
This is a combination of three pinball apps: Wild Wild West Pinball, The Deep Pinball and Jungle Style Pinball. However, you can still download these games separately if you want to. The game is praised for it’s awesome interface, gorgeous design, and realistic physics. The game features landscape and portrait options and an in-game help for each table. This is THE pinball game for the iPad.

2. Monster Pinball ($2.99)
Monster Pinball could be the most creative pinball game in the app store. While you still get a realistic physics engine, Monster Pinball breaks away from other pinballs by the usage of five other pinball tables (these six are linked into each other) which you can access by shooting the ball into a hole located at the top or sides of the tables. Then, your view switches to the other table to follow the ball. This also means that when you let a ball drop between the flippers, it does not necessarily mean you lost — you would just have to go one table lower.

3.Retro Pinball (free)
If you want a classic pinball at its best where there are no added features, just hit the ball with the flippers, then Retro Pinball might be the one just for you. Besides that, this one is absolutely free, so you don’t have anything to lose.

4. Freeballin’ ($2.99)
Freeballin is a combination of five pinball tables which include Tiki Trouble, Monteropolis, Deams and Nightmares, Neometric and Toyballin’. These games are fun to play because these include powerups, boss battles and missions on each table.
5. Slayer Pinball Rocks HD ($2.99)
The pinball game for all you metal lovers out there! This pinball game features a lot of awesome guitar riff in the background and some voice over from singer and bassist Tom Araya himself! It is co-made by Gameprom, the developer of the the first app I recommended, so you have an idea on how well this game is made. It also features a skull that eats the ball and launches it out of its eyehole so this one is definitely a must have!

6. Multiball Pinball ($1.99)
Multiball Pinball is also from Matmi, the developer of Monster Pinball. This focuses on juggling a lot of balls at a time — you can play up to three so that levels up the action and timing you need. Three times the fun!

7. Undead Attack Pinball ($2.99)
If you want something that is a little more refreshing than just racking up points, then you might want to try out Undead Attack Pinball. It is kind of a mix of pinball and defense, where you must keep the zombies away from your mansion’s gates, just below the flippers.
8. War Pinball HD
Another from Gameprom! They are sure a great pinball game creator. War Pinball HD features gameplay with missions, cinematic graphics, and sweet camera effects. It also has this twitter function that tweets your score.
