Product Description

Flipper Critters is a beautiful tale that combines fast-paced, traditional pinball action with a fun storyline where colorful characters must complete a series of missions to fulfill their quest to save a friend. The quirky characters travel through a variety of settings, from towering castles to the surface of the moon, in their quest to save a friend, poor Bull, who has a cold. During their adventures, the Flipper Critters interact with a reclusive sorceress and do battle with a towering giant, and even learn the secret of their own mysterious origins.

5.0 out of 5 stars All round fun - buy it! May 4, 2007
Fun: 5.0 out of 5 stars   
Flipper Critters makes the best use of each of the features of the DS all rolled into one exciting pinball game. Each level has plenty to do - you need to move the flippers, tap the screen and use the arrow keys. There are usually three pinball tables in each area/level and built-in arcade type mini games which aren't impossible to win! You get plenty of lives and there are lots of opportunites to gain new lives. This is a fun and addictive game and I'd say fun for all ages. I'm in my 40's and I'd strongly recommend you buy it for your kids - then play it yourself when they're asleep! In fact, the sooner more people are playing it the more tricks and tips will be available!

2.0 out of 5 stars Unsatisfying December 7, 2007

Fun: 2.0 out of 5 stars   
If you're a very young child (or an easy-to-please person in your 40's), you might get some enjoyment out of this, but if you have any kind of desire for a descent pinball sim on the go then this is the wrong game. If that's what you're looking for, then you need Metroid Prime Pinball instead.

Flipper Critters initially impressed me with a vibrant, colorful art style backed up by a silky-smooth 3D graphics engine. But as soon as the ball got rolling, most of those good vibes went straight down the drain. Pretty much all of the action happens on various "mini" tables instead of a large playfield like most pinball games. That would be fine, except that there's hardly anything to shoot the ball at no matter which table you're on. I would estimate at least 80% of my flipper shots simply hit the back wall and came straight back down again. Take a look at the game's trailer ([...]) to get a good idea of what to expect. An even bigger problem, though, is the designers' decision to require the use of the touch screen during play to manipulate ramps and targets and such. While this is a great feature for those of you with three hands, everyone else has to deal with the tedium of constantly trapping the ball in a flipper, picking up the stylus and using it to touch a target, then putting the stylus down and continuing play. This happens throughout the entire game and pretty much kills what little rhythm was there in the first place.

Aside from those problems, the sound design is somewhat limited, though the music is kind of pleasant to listen to. And the basic ball physics are solid, if only they were put to use in a better environment.

2.0 out of 5 stars disappointed June 28, 2008
By Miki G

From the picture and other reviews I mistakenly thought this would be good for a young child. The story line may be engaging but it is a bit more complicated than it appears and actual pinball playing is very limited. Unless an adult wants to go through it step by step each time and assist a child i don't think it is good for kids too young and older kids may find it too juvenile. I should have done my homework on this one. may be right for some folks but be sure you know what you are getting so you don't end up disappointed.

5.0 out of 5 stars Cute game to play for a few minutes once a week! June 8, 2008
Verified Purchase
Fun: 5.0 out of 5 stars   
I recommend to see a selection of videos to see if you like it - search google for videos of this game.

What I like:
1 - hypnotic music
2 - unusual things happen - the ball gets carried away by a bird...
3 - the ball rolls from one table to another to another with different sceneries - and even more tables to unlock.

My personal judgement: Not for playing hours and hours each day - but a few minutes once a week - yes - fun for me - the best DS game I have tried so far.

1.0 out of 5 stars A Good game for the kids July 31, 2012
A Kid's Review
Fun: 1.0 out of 5 stars   
If you are a serious pinball fan or what we are also called, a pinhead, I don't recommend this game for the Pinball Wizards. The storylines take up too much time and the player has to sit & wait before playing any serious pinball! It's a good game for the ages of 8-12yrs. old. I endedup giving this game to my mother because she's a casual pinball player. That's another thing I wanted to recommend this game for, the casual pinball players. Fans of the old school tables like the ones on The Williams Collection & Gotleib collections, you will be disappointed purchasing Flipper Critters. I orginally purchased this game to get my pinball fix,though this product didn't keep me occupied, I'm glad it made a great gift for my mother.
