Zen's Balls of Glory collection

Zen Studios have just released their Balls of Glory collection based on animated TV series of Fox Digital Entertainment. Four tables have appeared both as part of Zen Pinball 2 and as standalone apps. They are: Family Guy

Bob's Burgers

American Dad 

and Archer

I must confess that I haven't been following any of these series (and after having watched three minutes of Archer on YouTube I decided that I should better forget about it). Still the games are not bad. Graphically they are really nice without too many moving parts (something I dislike in Zen pinballs). The gameplay of the other hand is not very interesting: you just have to keep sending the ball along the various lanes. Moreover the bright colours make at times the ball hard to follow.

The table I liked most was Archer. (That was in fact the reason I sought out a compilation of Archer's best of in YouTube, an, a posteriori, bad idea). The one I did not like was Bob's Burgers but you may disagree with me. Speaking of animated TV-series themed pinballs I enjoyed South Park much more than Balls of Glory. Still, the latter is a nice collection and since you can buy the various tables separately this new collection will add some variety to your pinballs.
