Platoon – After a while, I started getting bored with the other two tables. So, I decided to try the Platoon table. It’s not too bad. My favorite part is that the multiball is easy to achieve. Up to four balls can be added by hitting the upper bumper/targets with the upper flippers. Although, the chaos is typically short. It’s hard to control so many balls at once. But as long as I can keep one ball in play, usually I can trigger a second multiball. This allows me to keep playing longer.
But like Navy Seals, I still haven’t been able to complete the Platoon storyline. The objective is to hit as many lit targets to advance the calendar. I haven’t been able to make it through a full year. My game usually ends before May.
One of the worst things about the Platoon table is the air raid siren sound. Because I can’t always hit all of the mines, the sound just keeps going and going. It gets very annoying. In general, I play with the music turned off.
Another one of the reasons why I avoided War Pinball for so long is that the game didn’t seem so kid friendly. War Pinball is based on “R” rated movies. I liked Space Cadet because it was a fun way to relax. I wasn’t so sure if I could trust this game to be as relaxing. If this is a concern, there is a way to disable profanity in the “Restrictions” setting.
But overall, I enjoy the action movie theme of War Pinball. If you don’t have any of the Gameprom pinball games, and you’re wondering which one to get for iOS, the Pinball HD Collection might be an app to consider. I don’t like in-app purchases, so I’m happier with War Pinball.
