The reviews are in! Lots of people are saying great things about our latest pinball project, The Walking Dead Pinball!
Cinema Blend – 4.5/5 – “If you enjoyed the first season of The Walking Dead from Telltale games, you’ll likely get an extra big kick out of this new table Zen Studios has to offer. It’s clear that they understand what made that original series work, and they’ve done an admirable job of plugging those concepts into a completely unexpected setting.”
Arcade Sushi – 8.5/10 – “It’s a weird mashup, taking the super-emotional narrative of that game and putting it onto a pinball table, but Zen Studio’s take on the zombie-fest is actually a ton of fun that somehow implements the Telltale pedigree choice-based gameplay onto a pinball table. I’m still not completely sure how this seems to work, but I can’t stop playing it over and over.”
Modojo – 4.5/5 – “…if you’ve been looking to scratch that special The Walking Dead itch, this game of pinball channels the fantastic adventure games in the best ways.”
Joystiq – “Despite its non-linear nature – pinball rarely adheres to a structured narrative – the table does a solid job of using skill shots and careful ball management to retell key story moments from the first season of Telltale’s beloved The Walking Dead.”
Destructoid – “Everything we loved about The Walking Dead is presented again through a pinball table, and, with pinball and Walking Dead being two of my favorite things, it’s a dream come true for me that something like this even exists.”
Shack News – “The Walking Dead is a fine representation of how to do a franchise right in another play style, and Zen Studios nailed down the theme perfectly…If it keeps up on a hot streak like this, everyone will want them to design their tables. As they should.”
148Apps – 4/5 – “…this just another example of why Zen is the modern master of virtual pinball.”
Gaming Nexus – 9.5/10 – “Every aspect of this table captures the essence and spirit of Telltale’s adventures.”
