Zen Pinball 2 is the sequel to Zen Pinball, the equivalent of the Pinball FX games on Xbox and PC. The features and the visual style are similar to Pinball FX2. As with most games in the series it is free to play where tables are bought as DLC. For the PS3 and PS Vita this is done as a cross buy. For the later released PS4 version as well, but a table purchase is imported through the main menu. Cross buy does not apply to the PS4 version however, so to get them across all available PlayStation systems with a single purchase they need to be bought for the PS3 or the PS Vita.
The PS4, Macintosh, iOS and Android versions contain the full and unrestricted Sorcerer's Lair table for free. The full catalog of tables depends on the platform, though new tables are generally released for all available platforms. All tables can be played for free for a few minutes. The game has different viewpoints, both analog and digital ball launches based on the type of table, mini-games, 3D animations, leaderboards, tournaments and personal statistics. Offline multiplayer, in split-screen (consoles only) or taking turns, is available for two to four players respectively.
For iOS it is released as Zen Pinball as a follow-up free hub version to previous stand-alone table releases such as Zen Pinball: Rollercoaster and Zen Pinball: Inferno. For iOS as well as Android some table releases are still standalone next to the hub DLC version.
