TURBO CHARGED PINBALL RETURNS! Now with bigger sprites, more baddies, more secrets & MORE BULLETS! Demon's Tilt pushes the limits of the Video Pinball genre with SHMUP & Hack N' Slash elements.
He’s a pinball wizard, there has to be a twist… seriously, though, pinball’s fun enough in the real world, but adding a whole new action-combat dimension is certain to make for a heck of a wild time. If you’re a “pin head” and love the experience of digital pinball gaming, Demon’s Head might be a bit of a hard-sell, if only because it’s basically doing anything but recreate the physical experience of playing pinball. Instead, it’s a crazy mash-up of arcade game with a pinball theme. Magical rituals provide nifty mini-quests on the gigantic board, which itself is really quite gorgeous as well as simply huge.
Whether you remember pinball fondly from your childhood, or just want to try out an arcade experience, this is something you’re certain to have fun with for at least a little while.

If you need to get your digital pinball on, Pinball FX3 is probably one of the best options around. You can, of course, go out and purchase some pretty awesome 4K pinball machines that blend the digital experience with a full-size pinball machine that will occupy a significant corner of your living room, but, for the rest of us, being able to access the nostalgia and fun of pinball through our console or PC is a lot easier. In the case of FX3, pinball is recreated carefully on the digital stage, with balls that have weight and a physics system that is going to have you slapping the sides of your computer to try and jigger the ball in the right direction.

The Epic Games Store has been around for a while, the lesser-known alternative to Steam, the nearly-ubiquitous platform for game purchases since it launched in 2003. But, where Steam originally existed and launched to promote Valve games, Epic Games Store launched in 2018 and quickly rose to success on the Fortnite franchise. At the time of Epic’s launch, Steam took a dramatic 30% cut from the sales of video games through their platform! This hurt both game designers and users, just wasn’t very nice. But the folks behind Epic realized something excellent: they could take a much lower cut and still have a profitable business. This led them to fast domination of the indie market, as small publishers flocked to the far better terms offered by Epic.
Epic Games Store offers some seriously incredible discounts on a regular basis, in addition to all the normal discounts one would expect on Black Friday, Cyber Monday, and the usual holidays. But the most exciting is their weekly free game or add-on, which simply harpoons all competitors.
When I first heard about this free game, I thought that can’t be real. They must only offer tiny indie games. Not at all, dear reader. Not. At. All. Epic frequently lists unbelievable A-lister games on their weekly deal, as well as sometimes offer two free games instead of one. In addition, just because a studio is smaller doesn’t mean the games it makes aren’t impressive. I’ve picked up some of my favorite new games, for free, from this platform, and most of them have been made by smaller studios (or as side-projects for teams from big studios).
