Sony television has released two Windows Phone titles (Wheel of Fortune and Jeopardy) which are receiving mediocre reviews. But now another Sony division, Sony Music Entertainment, has dropped its first title into the Windows Phone market. It’s Slayer Pinball Rocks . The iPhone version has 850+ ratings and 4 stars so this is a solid title. Oddly, the WP version lacks a description so let’s just use the iOS description for now but there’s no way to know what features are in the WP version:
"It lives up to its own name…it totally rocks." – MTV "Not since Electronic Arts’ Crüe Ball hit the Genesis in 1992 have we been this excited to experience the unholy marriage of pinball and heavy metal. Thanks to thrash metal outfit Slayer’s new iPhone game, heavy pinball is back!" – Kotaku "The world of iPad apps just got a whole lot more metal with the launch of Slayer: Pinball Rocks, a new game featuring an animated skull that eats your ball and spits it out through its eye hole" – Wired "Stop being such a Satan scaredy-cat and download what is arguably the coolest app that’s been introduced since fried mozzerella." – Examiner.com "If you were one of the gazillion people who bought a new iPad or iPhone 4… you might wanna add this to your must-download list." – Seattle Weekly Legends of metal meet the king of arcade games in one loud, fast, flipper-thrashing frenzy. Hyper-realistic pinball gameplay set to a backdrop inspired by the band’s latest head-banging masterpiece, World Painted Blood. Includes music from the new album, original voice recordings from singer/bassist Tom Araya, guitar shredding mini-games, and a pinball environment straight out of your worst nightmare. Co-produced by Sony Music and Gameprom (makers of The Deep, Wild West, Jungle Pinball, and Pinball HD). Play it LOUD! – Hyper-realistic physics engine – Extreme detail and original artwork – Multiple camera angles: including 3D-perspective, full-table, smart-cam – Horizontal and vertical gameplay – Multi-ball – Featuring music from World Painted Blood – Original voiceovers from Slayer – Rhythm mini-games
