1:21 PM | Sean Smith | Comment on this story

LittleWing, the legendary developer of some of the best pinball simulations around, has announced the imminent release of their latest title, Jinni Zeala:

Relive the excitement of pinball's Golden Age! After two years of dreaming and designing, LittleWing announces its newest and greatest pinball: Jinni Zeala.

  • Superb 3D playfield with authentic pinball art
  • Authentic ball-slamming physics
  • Cool animation and effects
  • Energetic soundtrack
  • New strategic challenges

It's psychedelic, pop... and of course, addictive!

LittleWing has a long and storied history in Mac gaming. The company developed their first pinball simulations, Tristan and Eight Ball Deluxe, for Amtex in the early '90s, and went on to develop Crystal Caliburn and Loony Labyrinth for Starplay and, more recently, Angel Egg and Golden Logres, distributed over the Internet directly by LittleWing.

LittleWing's games have earned a reputation among pinball fans for their graphical and aural polish, realistic physics, and engaging gameplay.

Jinni Zeala will be Carbonized to run natively on Mac OS X as well as on Mac OS 8.6 and 9. Here are the game's system requirements:

  • Power Macintosh (G3 of later model recommended)
  • Mac OS X 10.1 or Mac OS 8.6 or later
  • Free memory: 32 MB or more
  • Free hard disk space: 50 MB or more
  • Monitor: 800x600 or higher resolution, 32,000 or more colors

  • CarbonLib is required for Mac OS 8.6 and Mac OS 9

LittleWing is accepting advance orders now and expects the game to be available for download on May 1st. For more information, screen shots, or to place an order, visit the LittleWing web site.
