PinOutOfficial Waldo Score 7.0/10

7.0out of 10
Official Waldo Review

Pinout is one of those games where you take an old concept, such as pinball and you add a modern twist to it. The creators of this game did an amazing job making it fun and adventurous. The music alone had me playing for hours. The game design is flawless but I felt like to make this a perfect game, the title screen could have had more thought. This is the first thing people see when they open your app, make it interesting! Additionally, I like the monetization strategy for this game - pay to continue, but it wasn't enough for me to pull the trigger. I just kept trying to get further and further while still keeping the game free. Overall this is a top pick for me and I recommend that you definitely download this today!
