Tristan for iOS
In 1990, a small software company called Littlewing released Tristan, a pinball simulator for the Apple Macintosh. My gaming inability is legendary, but I really enjoyed playing it, while some of my friends (one who is probably reading this blog) became completely obsessed, marking up some ludicrously high scores.
Littlewing have since released a number of equally enjoyable pinball simulators. The graphics are ok, but their real strength lies in the excellent physics of the pinball's motion and reaction to the flippers and bouncers.
And now Tristan is available for the iPhone/iPod touch, with a separate version for the iPad. They are both a lot of fun, fully playable on the smaller screens, but a lot more fun on the iPad's larger screen.
Both versions cost £1.19.
