Whether you’re pinballing for the Light Side. Or the Dark Side. The galaxy far, far away needs you in its ongoing galactic struggle. Star Wars Pinball has been doing flips on other platforms for a long time. But this sweet spaceship has just landed on Switch! The Switch vers crams in a collection of 19 Star Wars-themed pinball tables. Chase high scores across the marvellous movies. Score big on cool Clone Wars and rad Rebels tables. Depending on your allegiance, battle with or against dastardly Darth Vader. Heroic Han Solo. Or bounty-hunting Boba Fett. And your fave droids. Plus, there’s a new career mode with 50 ranks to high-score your way through. We’ve played Star Wars Pinball on other platforms. But Switch is our current fave because the HD Rumble lets you feel the full Force of the table (just like IRL pinball). Plus, there’s a new way to play: vertical orientation. It Force converts your Switch into a Yoda-sized table.
Pinball is all about mastering the flippers. Def don’t flip both at once. Tap to reduce the size of the gap for the ball to fall between. But when the ball rolls slowly, catch it by holding the flipper up. Catch your breath. Plan your next angle. Then release and tap to send the ball flying!
The 19 tables are also available for Xbox One, PS4, Xbox 360, PS3, PS Vita, PC, iOS and Android. It’s just the new features and modes that are only available for the Switch version!
