close to the real thing
This app is perfect for those who like vintage pachinkos. The sounds are very authentic and match the motions of the balls (including banging against the glass!). The gravity is a little off—the balls don't launch or fall as fast as in real life—but the kinetics of how they bounce off of each other and through the nails are spot-on. I like how the settings allow you to determine how many balls you start with and how many you win per jackpot. Some of the graphics are a little hard to see, like the middle jackpot section, so it would have been nice to have that simpler or maybe a floating magnifying glass to see the detail. The flipper controls use the iPhone touch control perfectly and make the game play very much like an actual vintage pachinko machine. Kudos!

Great Fun
This is a great app. I love all of the settings available and the authenticity of the pachinko experience it brings. I have two suggestions to bring this to the next level. First, update the high scores table to count according to balls started. It’s not fair that someone with 50 balls to start gets the same treatment as someone starting with 10 just because they get the same amount of balls rewarded. Second, make a lefty mode — my right thumb gets sore after all that flicking! All in all a terrific app. Thanks!

Authentic look and feel
One of my boyhood friends had a pachinko machine at his house. Playing this game reminds me of that. I think it would be difficult to get a more authentic look and feel in a phone. The app could be improved in minor ways; the sound has audible hum and the ball physics suffers a bit from the small screen. However, in my opinion it is well worth the money I paid for it. I too would like to see in app purchases for diverse machines. Now that I've played the game for a while, there are a few bugs for which players should be warned. The settings screen doesn't allow one to abort the game. If the abort button is pushed, the settings screen becomes unusable. When that happens the player is locked into whatever game they are playing. There is at least a 1 in 25 chance of sinking a ball, so the 25 ball per goal game is almost impossible to lose. With no abort, the player will be stuck in that game. Also the top scores do not work. So keep the game on the 3 or 5 ball per goal settings and it is enjoyable.

Fantastic and realistic! A few suggestions...
This is an incredible pachinko simulation. I actually have a real machine that is almost exactly the same as this app, right down to the sounds. A few minor suggestions for the next update. On my real machine, the light in the top left of the screen lights up whenever I win balls. Also, it might be kind of neat if you could see the actual balls that you have and are winning in a hopper that is fed into the flipper. Having the number of balls easily shown is great, but I'd also like to be able to see the balls come out into the hopper as I'm winning, and the amount get smaller as I shoot them. One last thing, the difficulty is pretty high. My wife played for about 15 minutes before she won anything. With these updates, it would be a five star app. Great game, thanks for the great price as well.

The only true pachinko game on iTunes!
I grew up with a pachinko machine and have not found a realistic iTunes pachinko app...until now. On-Core's Pachinko is a complete app that offers the sounds, gameplay and even a lever similar to those that the real pachinko games have. Unlike the other pachinko games in the iTunes store that try to put a twist into their apps or use colorful buttons, On-Core's Pachinko stays true. If you haven't played pachinko, the gameplay is simple and similar to pinball except you shoot many more balls, scoring when balls hit specific targets, and you gain extra balls as your bonus. If you're looking for something straightforward and adheres to the spirit of the pachinko game, then you can't go wrong with On-Core's Pachinko.

Just Like Playing The Real Thing
This game gets you hooked for hours. It is just like playing the real thing. The physics seem real, they really put a lot of effort into this one. The only thing that would make it perfect (Which the developers say they're going to do once they get a web server dedicated to having them not just on the phone, but on the internet as well) is to have a high score listing where you can have your high score, even if you don't "win the game" by hitting the number of bonus balls. So, I will look forward to that update, but in the meantime, I will keep flipping the flipper and shooting balls and watching them bounce around hoping I hit the jackpot in the center. Way to go on this app!!!!

An Excellent Pachinko Program
This is a very faithful pachinko simulation. For those of you who complain that it is ugly or boring, guess what... That's what real pachinko was oftentimes like. The machines were often garish, and the game play was very repetitive. Even so, it's extremely addictive, and this app conveys that aspect if pachinko perfectly. If you ever enjoyed a pachinko machine in the past, this app is well worth the 99 cents to relive the good times. I'll agree with other rewiewers, and put in a vote for a few more board layouts, though in reality they all have similar mechanics. Still though, some machines modeled after true Japanese classic designs would be sweet.

Best Pachinko App in the App Store!!!
I've downloaded several Pachinko apps, and by far, this is the best one. I own a vintage Pachinko machine, and the sound effects of this app are perfect, right down to the balls tapping on the glass as they fall through the pins, the sound of the balls hitting the pins, the sound of the lever being flicked, the launch of the balls, and the sound of the balls exiting the play area. If you're looking for an authentic Pachinko machine app, I recommend this one over all the others, and it's less expensive. Great job!

Wonderful game! Have missed mine...
My family used to own a real Pachinko game when we were young, which I "inherited" when everyone left home. When I had to retire and downsize I had to give it up & I have REALLY missed it. This game looks a little different but plays almost identically to the one we had - it is marvelous! Nice going!! I would only like it better if I understood better how it tracks High Scores ... am not sure that's working right or I am understanding how to set that up...

The Best Pachinko!
My brother had a real Pachinko machine, and this game is as close to the real thing as you can get! Including the sound effects. This game is well worth getting!! It might be cool to have different skins, to have an animation where you see the balls loading and being used from the hopper at the bottom.

Nice Old-Style Pachinko Sim
This is a nice old-style mechanical pachinko simulator. The playfield design and graphics are simple but effective. Gameplay is an accurate simulation of the real thing. The ball physics seem realistic and accurate even with multiple balls bouncing around the field. The game audio is hit and miss. Some sounds (ball hitting pin, ball hitting wooden bucket, jackpot bell) are pitch perfect, others (Ball Launcher, drain, and alternate ball hitting pin sound) are so wrong as to be distracting. Resampling them would improve play. Altogether a good value for the pachinko fan. Recommended.

this game needs STATS and a HIGH SCORES table.
Not bad but I find these Pachinko games worthless time-wasters without any sort of RANKING, highscore table and STATS. At least the Making games have a "ranking" (highscore) table. Try Lucky Clune or the Eagle. BTW, will we ever see Pajatzo again? I heard the developer got sued. Too bad. That game looks awesome. Update: bumped to 3 stars (up from 2). I found the highscores table. Very nice. If this game had less "floaty" physics and more stats (total wins, total balls played, gameplay time, profiles, etc) it would be a 5 star game.

Four stars for Pachinko
Very nice! The physics are exquisite and the sounds undeniably believable. Options provide countless variations and repeatable gameplay. Would like to be able to see statistics on overall play - total number of balls and high scores and similar on a daily basis too. Would also like to see more Pachinko boards with different pin layouts. A facility for users to create and share boards would be a plus.

Extremely Satisfying Game
There is something very satisfying about this simple game. Never having played a "real" Pachinko machine before, I am now thoroughly hooked. I even purchased Pajatzo, a Finnish version of this game, but played with coins. I guess the old adage "KISS" (keep it simple stupid) has never been more true with this great game.

Brings back memories
Last year I had uncovered my old pachinko machine while cleaning out my garage. It was in poor condition and it saddened me to get rid of it. I'm so glad I found this app. It plays just like my old machine did back in my college days. It's really smooth and plays great! I'm very impressed.

パチンコ Success!
Finally, a straightforward, accurately designed pachinko game! I've yet to hit the middle buckets - any chance of a probability/skill variable in future releases? Multiple boards would also be a plus, but you can't beat the price, and the gameplay, of the current version. どうもありがとう! [Thank you!]

Vintage Pachinko machine
Awsome game!! I own 4 real Vintage Pachinko machines and this app is as real as it gets. The sound and the way the ball bounces off the nails and the lights and bell when you hit a payout Well worth the money lots of fun! I have other Pachinko apps that I paid more money for and are not as REAL as this one.. Great App Guys

Great Classic Pachinko!!!
Really nice. Physics have real weight, and the balls don't seem floaty. The sounds are spot on, and the handle even feels right. Another board or two would make an awsome update - but what is here is already worth every penny; thanks for a really enjoyable app!!!!

This reminds me of the pachinko machine I had growing up. It's been broken for quite a few years so I am really enjoying this game. The audio brings back alot of memories.

Somewhat addictive, but...
It has a most-accurate pachinko randomness, while a digital counter keeps track of balls won, and balls left. The disappointment is a HIGH SCORES talley, that doesn't record ANY scores (let alone your high achievements. Even better would be, if you could merely TOUCH the particular High Score Scenario you want to beat, to begin a game. NO NETWORK CAPABILITY!

Not bad for starters but....
It would be really nice to be able to choose between several different layouts. As it is, although game play is VERY much like the real thing, the board is downright ugly and too simple. Add some more layouts with more bells and whistles and this would be an awesome game!

Real vintage pachinko
I have about 5 vintage pachinko apps and this is the only one to deliver a true virtual pachinko experience. The play field is authentic down to the working tulips. But it's the real pachinko sounds that make this game stand out above all the others. If you enjoy vintage pachinko DON'T miss this one !!

It isn't as fun anymore
I got this app about 2 years ago, one of the first on my iphone, and loved it. I don't know quite what has changed but it isn't fun to play anymore because scoring seems like a rare accident instead of something I have anything to do with. Almost like the change from real handles to electronic firing. Recently I have seen runs of over 100 shots where nothing went in. Before, it was possible to move the handle position slightly and change the trajectory slightly. Now the handle position doesn't seem to have the same effect, a little change might have no effect or it might launch the ball on a dramatically different path. The balls also act much more "live", bouncing off posts really fast and not coming off at the angles they would need to drop into little spaces. I am using Pachinko on an iPhone 3GS running iOS 5.0.1. I notice that with this combination many apps, not just Pachinko, perform differently than they did in the past - some faster, some slower, much more variability in performance. (Some work better in airplane mode.) For real-time computation apps based on user hand-eye coordination, changes in the OS could really foul up the user experience. I don't know what happened to Pachinko or whether it's changes were intended by the developers or whether the change in the computing environment of the phone is responsible. In any case, Pachinko is more boring than it used to be because I don't have any illusion of controlling the handle anymore. It was my favorite before.
