Pinball FX2 – Captain America Pinball Table

Somehow this particular Marvel Comics Pinball FX2 table flew in low under my radar and if I hadn’t been looking over some of our readers various Pinball scores I never would have known that Captain America had been released for Xbox Live!

Zen Studios has really been doing just an amazing job with the Pinball FX2 line of tables and of the Marvel Comics pinball I think this is the best one, hands down. From Zen Studios press release:

“Set in the classic World War II environment inspired by Ed Brubaker’s Captain America 65th Anniversary Special, the table engages Cap, Bucky and members of the Howling Commandos in a full assault on Baron Zemo’s castle, where Zemo’s Death Ray and canisters of Adhesive X must be neutralized. As the game progresses, Cap will need to free his friends in the Howling Commandos and defeat several low-level missions as he works to confront the Sleeper before taking the Cosmic Cube from the Red Skull in the final battle.

The Captain America table follows richly detailed designs and offers another action-packed adventure to the critically acclaimed Marvel Pinball tables already available. For the latest Marvel Pinball news and more details on the Captain America table, visit”

Does this mean we shall choose Captain America as the next Retroist Pinball Challenge…could be…stay tuned.

Retroist Pinball Challenge #1: Completed!

Friends, the first Retroist Pinball Challenge, which featured the Pinball FX2 Iron Man table has been completed and I dare say the winning score is completely jaw-dropping.

Please join me in a round of applause for HeathenSauce and his pinball skills, he is the 19th best player on the Iron Man table…in the world! I believe a bit of music is in order for that feat!
