That Ms. Splosion Man Sure Plays a Mean Pinball
This game was reviewed on the Xbox 360.
Not enough ‘splodin in your diet? Need a Big Science booster shot? Well the wicked minds at Zen Studios and Twisted Pixel have the concoction for you! That’s right; the Ms. Splosion Man table for Pinball FX2 is now available on Xbox Live!
Zen Studios has crafted a beautiful table that is truly a sight to behold. Using assets from the Ms. Splosion Man game, the table features the title’s electric-pink heroine in the lower right corner acting up in her trademark manner. She snaps out her expected pop-culture quips and songs and snazzy dance steps, while you furiously navigate your balls of steel through the playing field. Looming above you is Mighty Eternal, still looking worse for wear after his last encounter with the Queen of Kablooey. Exploding barrels, breakable glass barriers and more destructible objects can be found on this table. Even Destructoid’s loveable robot is on scene and activates a sub-mission when you hit it enough times.
Ms. Splosion Man’s pinball table is no mere reskin however. The table is entirely unique in its design and even sports four missions that you need to complete in order to take on Mighty Eternal himself in a battle for your booming beau. The design itself is hands down the best layout that I’ve seen for Pinball FX2. Zen has really pulled out all the stops with this table to make it as crazy, frantic and fast paced as the platformer that it’s modeled after. Once the momentum on the table gets going, the challenge increases exponentially – especially if you’ve got a multi-ball run going on the table.
For the frugal sum of 250 Microsoft Points, you too can enjoy this fantastically crafted, frantically paced table (and Pinball FX2 as well since it’s free!). Ms Splosion Man fans and pinball aficionados alike are guaranteed to enjoy!
If you aren’t familiar with PFX2, it also sports local and online multiplayer and leader boards to show off against your friends and challenge them as well. Many more tables are available, and the price is well worth it.
This table receives a 5.0/5.0.
