XENOTILT: HOSTILE PINBALL ACTION is a new game in the underserved genre of pinball simulators.

We’ve all been there, nothing else to do and you load up 3D Pinball: Space Cadet that came free with windows. We all have played pinball, we all loved it. It only makes sense that someone would make more.

XENOTILT does its darnedest at trying to get people back to playing the classic game of pinball; although rather than trying to simulate an actual table they try and get creative. Perks, weird and physically impossible hazards, XENOTILT remembers it’s a pinball video game and not just a simulator.

You can check out the trailer below:

This isn’t publisher FLARB’s first foray into pinball, you can check out our Spotlight for Demon’s Tilt here.

XENOTILT: HOSTILE PINBALL ACTION is available now on PC (via Steam) as an Early Access title but is expected to release fully by the end of the year.
