Dark, Sci if-ish, steam punk styled pinball; just great
Slam Tilt is a Sci Fi looking pinball game, with a visual theme that is rather dark, inspired a little visually by Geiger paintings, but also, by the cool steam punk visual style. In terms of controls it is hard wired to perfection, so no issues there; you press the button, the action is immediate. The physics implementation works also delightfully, creating an in depth, well oiled kind of game, that won't really give you no issues. It's the best kind of game all around, and, so, the only thing to look for is see if the visual theme sparks with you, if it gives you the kind of feel that you like. For me it was definitely a blast, and the game went into my timewaster games basket, which consists of games that are pinball oriented or just direct, easy to play, no fuss arcaders; and, believe me, I'm a pretentious retro gamer! Issues, well, I need to note the sounds that are a bit, well, dated, but then again I rarely play any of these oldies with their original sounds blasting out; I just mute the thing and play it; with your own music playing, and a smooth, well playable set of graphics and controls, Slam Tilt does it well enough. As does Pro-Pinball: TimeShock, which in addition to be super playable, is also a graphical journey that you'll just love.
