Vision Thing Software’s Ballywoo (iPhone) Game Plays Tribute to 1930s Pinball Machines

I was going through the press releases for new games coming out for iOS and Mac OS platforms when I found a new app that paid tribute to something that came about in 1932. Vision Thing Software’s “Ballywoo – The Game Sensation  of 1932” recreates one of the first commercial, mass-produced pinball machines ever made. The sharp, tinny sounds of the ball hitting the pins and the smooth animation, add to the realism of this unique period piece. That machine launched the career of Ray Moloney’s Bally Manufacturing Corporation.
