iPhone morphs into pinball machine

Flippin' iOS

Choosing a cloud hosting partner with confidence

Pinball machines are hard to come by these days, and even the pre-installed version on Windows has died out. Fret not, Pinball Wizards! You can turn your phone into a miniature machine and relive those childhood arcade moments.

Pinball Magic transforms an iPhone with side-mounted flipper buttons, a ball launch plunger and a credit / select button. LED lights and traditional sounds also add to the nostalgic realism.

Pinball Magic

Compatible with all iPhone models and iPod touch 3.0 upwards, Pinball Magic has several play modes, and includes tilt detection to cut out cheaters in traditional fashion.

Pinball Magic is available on pre-order at Firebox for £30. It will dispatch next week. You will need an app though to get it running, which can be downloaded for free.

Flipping heck. ®
