November 4, 2022

If you enjoy pinball games on your iPhone or iPad, then INKS is one you need to check out. This fun game gives you the classic pinball action with a colorful twist.

Each time your pinball hits a color on the table, ink splatters. The colors will be in different spots, with various methods of hitting them, across the different tables. This makes for a truly distinctive pinball experience and if you like the ink creation you have made, you can take a snapshot of it to save or share.

The game offers 100 different pinball tables to play on, each with its own unique design. And of course, there are challenges that are a lot harder than they look. So, do not be too distracted by the colorful canvas you are creating because you still need to complete the table.

Your goal on each of the tables is to hit all of the colors. You will continue getting more pinballs, but cannot complete the table until all colors have been splattered about. Once you succeed, your pinball will retire to its home in the center of the table.

The game is $2.99.

Although it’s best known for the match-three swapping tile game Candy Crush Saga, King actually made its first foray into mobile gaming with the bubble-shooting game Bubble Witch Saga. And Bubble Witch Saga 3 is the latest in the series.

Bubble Witch 3 Saga features an improved aiming line that allows you to shoot, match, and burst bubbles with greater accuracy. Just tap and swipe to aim and release to shoot. You can also tap to swap the bubble you’re about to launch for another color. As you play, look out for new bubbles as well as new boosters.

The game introduced four special game modes. There’s Owls mode, where you must free the owls trapped in bubbles on the board. There’s Collection mode, where you have to clear all of the bubbles from the board. There’s Ghost mode, where you have to clear a path for the ghost to join his friends at the top of the board. And then there’s Wilbur mode, where you have to go head to head in a boss battle of sorts with the wicked cat and defeat him by rescuing Stella’s bubble-trapped fairy friends.

As you might expect, the game is free with in-app purchases.
