Are you a pinball wizard? Go get the updated Dr. Pickaxe for your Windows Phone

We’ve already called Pinball League: The World of Dr. Pickaxe one of our favorite pinball games for Windows Phone (there really aren’t enough) but the popular title did have a glitch for Windows Phone 8 users, resulting in the game being recently pulled from the Store.

Now the game is back and better than ever with a modest 1.02 update that just came out today...

The update addressed the Windows Phone 8 graphics issue and addresses a few others as well:

  • A minor compatibility issue with Windows Phone 8 is fixed
  • Lens flare effects for the playfield lights are implemented
  • Selectable video resolution for smoother gameplay on 1st generation devices
  • Resume in "Tango" (256mb) devices is now supported
  • Various performance improvements
  • Various fixes

The game always worked well for Windows Phone 7 but we have to admit that with the dual-core CPU on Windows Phone 8 devices and the enhanced GPU, the game is even smoother now, giving us some real good gameplay.

You can watch our video tour that we did a few months ago above and if interested, you can pick it up here for $1.99 with a free trial. We happen to love the pinball, so for us this was a definite purchase.

I had this on my Omnia7. Not that impressed. What happened to the high quality pinball game that was announced a few months ago? Or was I dreaming?

Yeah, I've also used it on Omnia and on Lumia. It was pretty much ok for me but I am also lookin for the Pinball game It's been a very long time since it was announced. So when will it come?
