Guess what you’re getting for free for a week? Zen Studios is finally bringing Paranormal from Zen Pinball for the PS3 into Pinball FX 2 on the Xbox 360. And it’s free to play from October 26th until November 2nd.
It’s not a particularly attractive table. It’s got a distinct lack of bright colors and blatantly flashy bits. Instead, it has the Jersey Devil, the Loch Ness Monster, an old plane going down in the Bermuda Triangle, a Hellraiser cube, a cutaway haunted house, those clacky balls that a weird occultist might have in his office, a reverse gravity pocket, and a goofy pop-eyed chupacabra hiding in the bushes. I couldn’t begin to say whether Paranormal is Zen’s best table — there are too many that are too different — but it’s one my favorites along with Secrets of the Deep and Earth Defense Force because of their clear affection for their cheesy theme.
