|Conspiracy Entertainment Europe today announced the signing of Zen Studios Flipper Critters for the Nintendo DS. Set for release during July, Flipper Critters is a pinball title.
Instead of confining the action to a standard pinball table, all of the fast-flipping action in Flipper Critters takes place in a variety of landscapes, locations and areas, from town squares and mountain valleys through to towering castles and even the surface of the moon! All of the most famous and favourite pinball features are still there, including ramps, sinkholes, bumpers, jackpots, gates and goals � though not as you know them. Additional game details can be found above.
And that's not all. Flipper Critters also features a wide range of mini-games which challenge players to master a variety of new skills and make use of the unique aspects of the Nintendo DS, including the touch screen and WiFi. Players can access several mini games and travel to different areas of the map from the pinball tables within the game. The mini games and areas can be accessed in any order, making the gaming experience different for each player and each gameplay session.
Throughout the game, players will encounter and receive help from some of Flipper Critters' peculiar inhabitants. Characters can offer help, cast spells or offer the player quests and challenges to undertake, helping them to reach new areas of the map.
