Play OverviewPlay Overview

The Pinball Wizard (2022) is an action adventure game where you hit an adventurer around a dungeon to score points, kill enemies and collect treasure. Play involves classic pinball action, flinging your character at enemies, along with a dash to give them a boost in a particular direction. It's a unique combination of ideas that work together to create an approachable dungeon battle.

It's a dungeon crawler pinball hybrid where each level is a floor of the tower. The goal is to survive and get to the top of the castle in one piece. You play by dashing, hurling, and flipping your adventurer to the top of the tower. As you progress you can level up skills, collect treasure and fight monsters. In this way you explore each room to find the key, restore the power of The Eye at the top of the tower. But because of the simple pinball mechanics, things are kept simple and approachable.

The result is a dungeon adventure that is enjoyable by anyone, regardless of ability. You can play in a few different ways:
  • Tower Mode: Climb a tower with twenty-one levels and defeat the boss.
  • Dungeon Mode: Survive as long as you can in a giant dungeon.
  • Two Daily Dungeons: A fresh new dungeon to take on everyday.
