Fond of Zen Pinball?  Looking for another reason to go back and wear out your flippers?  We’ve got the answer right here.

The Mars DLC table has landed and we have the low-down about the newest download for the classic PSN pinball game.

Zen Pinball has been around now for just over a year and the game’s developers – Zen Studios – are trying their hardest to make sure that you have plenty of reasons to keep playing.

The Mars Table marks the fifth post-launch DLC they’ve released on the PlayStation Store and this might be their best one yet.

Perhaps the most alluring thing about this content is its theme.  Unlike most of their other DLC, this offering is not themed after a game but instead has a generic outer-space/Mars theme.

You’d think that generic would be a bad thing but that’s not really the case.  Because of its more neutral subject anyone who enjoys pinball can probably play and have a blast and not have to worry about having a game you’re not interested in repeatedly being thrown in your face.

If it was a futuristic space-aged look they were going for with this design, they nailed it.  Bright lights, holographs and lots of intergalactic-themed items litter the board.  All are very well designed and were a complete joy to look at.  There’s even a small droid that jumps around the table and will occasionally help save your balls – which is great because we all hate losing our balls.

The objectives also have a similar signature to them, all being things that have to do with space exploration and discovery.  They vary from scanning samples, exploring new areas of the planet, doing maintenance on your shuttle and even loading the shuttle itself with properly placed balls.
