    Is there a pinball game for the ipad that's decent? If not man, it's perfect for one.

    I was reading about one, that can even use the iPhone to control the flippers. Called "The Pinball", has three tables.

    What's Bill Budge up to these days? Maybe he could port "Raster Blaster" (a circa 1981 Apple II pinball game) to the iPad. It was a GREAT game on the 6502 processor and WAY AHEAD of it's time with so many nuances that it was totally fun to play for hours!

    I agree, this piece of hardware would be ideal for the game! I bet he could have some fun with colors, sound, etc. creating a pinball game for the iPad.... Ohhh, how I miss those hours of playing Raster Blaster on my Apple IIe with that green monochrome screen... Oh boy,...we have come so far!

    Pinball Construction Set on an iPad would be WONDERFUL!!! Any developers listening???

    There are already a couple of iPad compatible Pinball games in the App Store (including an iPad-only one from ESPN). But, as DreamPod mentions, the one I'm waiting for is "The Pinball":

    Unfortunately, it's not available just yet. I have their Wild West Pinball on my iPhone and it is one of my favorite apps. I will definitely be getting "The Pinball" for my iPad.

    BTW, what I'd REALLY love to see happen is for the most successful pinball game of all time to come to the iPad:

    http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/The_Addams_Family_(pinball)

    Addams Family pinball is my absolute favorite pinball game. Back in the early '90s, I played it for hours on end in a local arcade. They had five of the machines and sometimes all of them would be busy.

    If only Addams Family pinball could come to the iPad! I'd pay $30 for that app!

    ^^^That looks like a winner to me.

    I just tried out Labyrinth HD Lite on my iPad, and it's amazing how much better such a simple game can be on a larger screen.

    Bring on the pinball games.....
