SummaryPinball as addictive as any 1st-person shooter.
The GoodBoS is just plain fun as hell to play - although to truly appreciate it, you have to be of the scrolling-pinball generation (Dreams/Fantasies/Illusions, Epic, Extreme, etc.), and of course play it in scrolling mode. Each table is chock full of incredible graphics, special modes, dot-matrix video games (just about everything you can do with 2 flippers and a plunger), and funny random add-ons ("moo").
They did a great job of testing the game - it seems virtually bug-free. Even when events are activated in rapid succession, the animations and sound effects play out smoothly. The gameplay seems just about right for each table, but they have enough differences to make playing each one worthwhile.
The music is appropriate for each game, and the sound effects are very well done (even Duke Nukem returns with a few new quips).
The BadI'll just have to nitpick:
- Gameplay is almost TOO easy - granted, I don't mind playing longer than in other games. Ball "nudging" seems excessive; the ball visually changes course (also, the nudge keys are backwards compared to other games, but that can be fixed by the user).
- Since the music wasn't tracked, it's not very strong and doesn't change much (mostly 20-second loops).
- A better intro screen would be nice, with more info on the table rules.
