Pinball games were pretty fun on the iPhone with games like Wild West pinball leading the way. Now, with the release of the iPad, this game and 2 others have been released in one app. The Pinball HD combines three popular pinball games into one app and does an amazing job. The visuals in the game are great and the game itself runs extremely smooth.

When you start up the app, there isn't really a menu system. Flicking down or up will change the pinball table to a different theme, while flicking to the right or left will allow you to views news or scores. Once in a game, there are only two controls really. Press the left side of the screen to control the left flippers and the right side to control the right. Scores can be posted to a international board so if you have the uncanny ability to score high in pinball, you might want to try to be the best. Another unique feature is the ability to turn on stereoscopic imaging to view the board in 3D. This was a really fun feature that I unfortunately was unable to try out due to the lack of glasses.

Overall, the game plays buttery smooth and is an awesome experience on a screen as large as the iPad. Check it out.
