Fresh Android Games for May 13: Pinball HD for Tegra, Pumpkins vs Monster

by Ian Black

Nintendo has a 3D portable gaming system – but you don’t need one because you have an Android phone and Pinball HD for Tegra. Then, match and fling pumpkins to save the world in Pumpkins vs Monsters.

Pinball HD for Tegra ($2.99)

Digital pinball goes 3D in this app. Choose from one of three themes: Wild West, The Deep, and Jungle Style and then get flipping with the silver ball. Switch between modes where you see the entire surface of the game table to “flying table” where you’re zoomed in and follow the ball around the bumpers.

Try the simulated 3D view without glasses or go nuts with stereoscopic anaglyph 3D glasses and see the pinball table as if it were really there.

Trip out to the unique soundtrack and atmospheric music.

Pumpkins vs Monster (Free)

What do you get when you combine Bejeweled, Halloween, and Zombieland? You guessed it – Pumpkins vs Monster.

Before you fling your pumpkins at the invading undead army, you must first match three pumpkins of the same color. Once matched, the pumpkins become weapons that take out the monsters.

The description in the Android Market is pure gibberish, but the ratings are high. Play 45 levels on three different haunted worlds.
