‘AC/DC Pinball Rocks’ – App Review
Much like the legendary Australian band's music, other than the window dressing there's no attempt to update a classic format here. It's one of the more elaborate tabletops we've seen, but just like old-school pinball all you do is shoot the ball onto the tabletop and work your flippers.
Instrumental versions of songs such as 'You Shook Me All Night Long' and 'War Machine' play in the background as your silver ball creates sparks and noise everywhere it goes. Angus Young's trademark SG guitar and the cannon from 'For Those About to Rock We Salute You' stand above the board on each side as special bonus zones, and there's bumpers, trap doors, the train from the 'Black Ice' tour and of course, 'Hell's Bell' to deal with as well.
Screenshots don't do the 3D visuals justice. The only real drawback in terms of gameplay is the fact that you can't see the whole board at once, so you have to remember to hit your flippers ahead of time if the ball makes a sudden break for the bottom of the table. Don't worry, you'll get the hang of it fast!
