I’m back to report on the two new Zen tables. Both are available on iOS as individual purchases of $1.99.
Adventure Land is amusement park-themed. The music is grating but the table is fun so far. There are some great ramps and orbits that resemble a roller coaster and help give the table some great visual flare. The speed changes down the loop ramp in particular can be a little jarring, but not too bad. I think I will like this table.
Son of Zeus is a Hercules-themed table, and boy is it ugly. There is a terrible volcano (?) blob in the upper right, an ugly hydra-head ramp, and two transparent two-level areas. The board does have some great audio callouts, though. I’m a bit indifferent about the missions and don’t see this table as having the staying power to keep me coming back to it.
There are better tables in the Zen Originals selection, but there are certainly worse tables across the Zen collection. The price alone is worth it for each table as $1.99 for a table to master is hard to beat. I wouldn’t go rushing out to get either of the new tables unless you’re starved for more but the tables are good enough to recommend to an enthusiast.
