    Trying it out now, well done! Quick comments;

    It's a bit slow, as if the pinball machine has a bad angle. I think you can make it go faster or make it appear is if the ball is heavier, if you will.
    The flippers themselves need to go back faster to the start position, there's too much easing now which makes it harder to do precision shots.

    Thought, maybe add a feature that mimics the player pushing the pinball machine so the ball moves a bit - and of course, too much pushing will cause it to tilt.

    Great release, keep at it!

    hi thingwilliam

    thanks for the test and comment

    - I will try about the ball weight if not discontrol a lot the ball in bouncings.

    - The easing n the flipper is something i am hitting my head against the wall since some weeks ago i am working on it.

    -about the tilt, well is a classic in pinball games how to forget it, really i went thinking on integrate it but the main problem is how to control it or using accelerometer or tapping on some side of screen or whatever that i dont thinked out, but is a good point thanks for remember.

    - sorry i forgot to ask if the Game Play Services works for your device to send score after when gameover and list of leaderboards under scores on menu

    so lets code ;)

    If you make tilt work with a slight tap on the sides or a shake, that would be pretty cool. Perhaps just a button to see how the physics works. I'll check scores in a bit!

    I usually record with adb. I'm on a Mac so YMMV. Plug in your device with a USB cable and do

    adb shell screenrecord /sdcard/my_recording.mp4

    Exit when done and to pull the recording to your computer, do

    adb pull /sdcard/my_recording.mp4

    And a tilt approach will be included in next update.
