Zen Pinball announced at New York Comic Con that they will be releasing a digital table based on Doctor Strange this December, 2013 to join their Marvel Pinball series. It looks to be a pretty strong offering.
A cursory look at the table gives the impression that it is fast and combo-heavy. I wonder if it will be as combo-heavy as World War Hulk is. That game has combos everywhere. Almost too many combos. Can you have too many combos?
From the press release:
The greatest powers of the occult, both from our own world and the darkest dimensions in existence, are combining their forces to take over Earth. And only one man can stop them – Doctor Strange, the Sorcerer Supreme! With the help of the beautiful Clea and his faithful servant Wong, the Master of the Mystic Arts faces his greatest challenge ever in Doctor Strange pinball, the newest addition to the Marvel Pinball library.
Strange’s rival sorcerer Baron Mordo has called upon the demonic forces of the Dread Dormammu and the Fear Lord, Nightmare, all part of his plot to assume the mantle of Sorcerer Supreme for himself. Meanwhile, Shuma-Gorath, the Lord of Chaos, resides in the background with nefarious plans of his own…
Numerous voice over lines and situations were adapted from 50 years of Doctor Strange comic books for this table, including the classic first two issues of DOCTOR STRANGE, SORCERER SUPREME (1988), wherein Dormammu threatened our dimension by overtaking Strange in his own body. Only with carefully cast spells (i.e., deadeye shots from you, the player) does Strange hope to stand a chance against inconceivable odds.
Doctor Strange will be available for download in December 2013 on a variety of platforms including Xbox LIVE® Arcade, Steam, PlayStation®Network, iOS, Google Play, Windows 8, OSX, Kindle Fire and the Wii U eShop.
