If you haven’t gotten your Star Wars fix with the Angry Birds, Zen Studios is here to save the day with an update to its popular Zen Pinball app. Version 1.9 brings three new pinball tables for purchase inside the app for $1.99 each. Star Wars: Episode V, Star Wars: The Clone Wars, and Boba Fett are now available. Each of the tables feature a different iconic moment from the Star Wars saga. With 3-D art and unique gameplay, users can control some beloved characters including Luke Skywalker, Boba Fett, Anakin Skywalker, and Ahsoka Tano. Pinball lovers can also post their scores to global leaderboards and experience in-game friend challenges. Also with the updated app, players can watch a trailer for all of the tables available for download. My favorite table looks to easily be the Clone Wars. It features Anakin Skywalker and his apprentice Ahsoka Tano represented as 3-D characters. Not to be outdone, the table has a Republic attack gunship that looks spectacular. Here’s a short trailer with some action from the table. Click here if you can’t see the video. Zen Pinball is a universal app designed for the iPhone/iPod touch and iPad/iPad mini. It can be downloaded free in the App Store now. The app comes free with the Sorcerer’s Lair table, and other tables are available to buy as in-app purchases. Some of the more interesting options include an X-Men and Civil War table for $1.99 each.
