As kids, most of us spent our time at the arcade, playing Pac Man and Space Invaders. But one type of game will always remain in our hearts: Pinball. The sweet sounds of the Pinball machine and the dazzling light will be with us for ever, and with this Windows 8, Windows 10 Pinball game, anyone can remember how those games were.

Even if you are like me and you want to remember the good old days, when we played Pinball, or if you are now starting to play, Pinball FX2 for Windows 10, Windows 8 is a awesome game.

The game is free to download from the Windows Store, however, it features only one free level, the rest of the layouts can be bought in-game if you want. The layout that is free is called Mars, and your mission is to repair the ship and get out of there.

In terms of gameplay, there’s not much to say, as the game has a classic Pinball look and feel. However, the developers have managed to add options for controlling the game via a keyboard, a controller or the usual touch interface. The layout of the buttons can be seen in the Options menu.
