Game Troopers is one of the hardest working Windows 10 developers out there. They have churned out a respectable collection of Windows Phone and Windows 10 games that you can easily lose track of time with. Momonga is one of their more recent offerings and delivers a unique pinball game to the Stores.
The storyline behind the game has a group of owl bandits raiding the peaceful village of the momongas, a tribe of flying squirrels. During the raid, the owl bandits kidnap every momonga except one, the young Momo. Momo is rescued by a Panda who trains him to fight the owls and save his tribe. You accomplish this by tackling a series of pinball games.
