Excerpt: I really love pinball and it's one of those games that you can play without having to concentrate too hard - I mean it's just a matter of flipping a metal ball bearing around a table and not letting it go between your flippers and out of play - isn't it? Enter the bizarre world of Flipper Creatures!
Summary: Flipper Critters is a novel twist on the pinball theme. Unfortunately it's a mess when it could have been good. There's colourful 3D graphics spread over both screens, novel rotating tables with three sets of flippers in the middle, and the ball physics is pretty good. Sadly, the rest of the game is half-baked. The main problem with the game is that most of the time you don't know what to do.
Summary: If you are a serious pinball fan or what we are also called, a pinhead, I don't recommend this game for the Pinball Wizards. The storylines take up too much time and the player has to sit & wait before playing any serious pinball! It's a good game for the ages of 8-12yrs. old. I endedup giving this game to my mother because she's a casual pinball player. That's another thing I wanted to recommend this game for, the casual pinball players.
Summary: Flipper Critters was not the best idea for a game. It was amusing when I first played it, but then after 2 mins it got boring. I could not get past world 2 and ent up taking it back to the store. UNLESS YOU LIKE WASTING MONEY, DON'T BUY IT.
Summary: From the picture and other reviews I mistakenly thought this would be good for a young child. The story line may be engaging but it is a bit more complicated than it appears and actual pinball playing is very limited. Unless an adult wants to go through it step by step each time and assist a child i don't think it is good for kids too young and older kids may find it too juvenile. I should have done my homework on this one.
Summary: I recommend to see a selection of videos to see if you like it - search google for videos of this game. What I like: 1 - hypnotic music 2 - unusual things happen - the ball gets carried away by a bird... 3 - the ball rolls from one table to another to another with different sceneries - and even more tables to unlock. My personal judgement: Not for playing hours and hours each day - but a few minutes once a week - yes - fun for me - the best DS game I have tried so far.
Summary: If you're a very young child (or an easy-to-please person in your 40's), you might get some enjoyment out of this, but if you have any kind of desire for a descent pinball sim on the go then this is the wrong game. If that's what you're looking for, then you need instead. Flipper Critters initially impressed me with a vibrant, colorful art style backed up by a silky-smooth 3D graphics engine.
