Zen Studios releasing Epic Quest for Pinball FX 2
Zen Studios is adding more pinball action to its popular Pinball FX 2 platform, but this time with a twist.
Epic Quest will release this week on Xbox Live Arcade, PlayStation Network, Android Marketplace and the Apple App Store. This medieval-type table will have players aid Max in battling hordes of monsters, stealing their loot and rescuing a wealthy princess. Unlike past pinball tables, this one features RPG elements where players can gain experience points and level up Max, helping the knight defeat monsters more easily.
“It is our quest to deliver the most entertaining and original pinball tables, and Epic Quest delivers on both fronts,” said Mel Kirk, Zen Studios vice president of marketing and public relations, in a press release. “With a wink and a nudge toward classic RPG tropes, Epic Quest blends frantic pinball action, obsessive character building and liberally applied tongue-in-cheek humor."
When the game ends, the XP and loot received will carry over to the next game.
