Just in time for Marvel’s Ant-Man coming to the big screen this week, Zen Studios is ready to give players a taste of the soon to be hit movie with a pinball table themed after the small but powerful superhero in Zen Pinball 2: Ant-Man. While it doesn’t look like a lot at first (kind of like the movie), there’s a lot of cool things hidden as you play that’s sure to please any who check it out (again like the movie I hope).
Much like their Avengers: Age of Ultron table, the Ant-Man DLC brings Marvel’s soon-to-be hit to the small screen in a spoiler-free pinball romp that features thief-turned hero Scott Lang as he begins his life changing journey to become the small superhero we’ll cheer for. Here he will have to contend with the evil Yellowjacket while also receiving advice from Dr.Hank Pym, the inventor of the technology that powers their armored suits. You’ll make use of three flippers to guide your pinball through crazy, winding ramps, bumpers and more as you rack up points while unlocking some pretty awesome mini-games and features.
A perfect example is the subatomic particle in the middle of the table, which most would think is just there for decoration. If you hit it enough times, it’ll shrink and become a second pinball for you to have some multiball fun with. This is just one of the many things you’ll find as you make your way through the game, which is sure to keep players on the lookout for other nifty things they can find, if they’re willing to go outside the box of normal pinball play.
As with Zen Studios’ previous tables, the visuals and sounds never fail to disappoint. All of the awesome animations and attention to detail that players have come to expect of Zen are here and will keep your eyes as well as your fingers busy while playing. The sounds are just as cool, thanks to Scott, Hank and Yellowjacket talking as you play along with some fitting music that will have you smiling as it all comes together to make one awesome pinball experience.
Zen Pinball 2: Ant-Man is everything pinball players have come to expect of Zen’s famous franchise and more, thanks to all of the awesome hidden features that bring some much needed fun and excitement from exploring areas back to video games. If you’re a fan of Marvel stuff, love pinball, video games or all of those, this is the game to get antsy for.
