My first gaming experience was on a pinball machine, and I've not stopped gaming since. There's a magic in playing pinball, bells ringing when you score big, the satisfaction of beating the game with your super reflexes and the PRESENCE of the pinball machine.
Magic I tell you.
So I guess, the second best thing is playing digital pinball with 'ole R2-D2 and C-3PO from Star Wars? I've been thinking about adding a R2-D2 tattoo to my gaming tats for years. Anyways, back to the news, the two legends will join the Star Wars Pinball: Heroes cast on April 29. Did I mention you can rescue Princess Leia?
Climb aboard the Jawa’s massive Sandcrawler and check out the trailer showing off our Droid duo’s pinball debut.
R2-D2 and C-3PO face a myriad of pitfalls including conveyor belts, welding torches, pressing machinery, robotic arms and lava pits. Your finest pinball skills are required to help our friends escape the Sandcrawler! Beware of Nebit, as he tries to thwart the escape and keep our Droids captive. May the Force be with you.
Similar to the Episode V and VI tables, The Episode IV table focuses on the biggest events from the film. The main characters are represented in 3D, including Luke Skywalker, Darth Vader, Princess Leia, Obi-Wan Kenobi, and of course, a Stormtrooper. There is no shortage of frenzied pinball action in this table. You will feel the pressure of the trash compactor in Scene 4 as you race to hit the ramps to stop the walls from closing in. Scene 6 brings the challenge of the trench run, as you jump into your X-wing and take down TIE fighters on your mission to destroy the Death Star! These amazing moments and many more require your pinball wizardry.
Star Wars Pinball: Heroes will be available for download on April 29 for PlayStation 4, PlayStation 3, PS Vita, Xbox 360, Steam, iOS, Google Play, Amazon and the Mac App Store.
May the ball be with you.
