Pinball M – Texas Chainsaw Massacre Pinball

Pinball M is a spin-off of the Pinball FX series of pinball simulators. It provides a platform for mature tables, and was released on the 30th November 2023. It is a free-to-play game that includes one base table that is available for unlimited free play. In months after its release, six additional tables were released, and you can buy each of them for a bit more than five bucks. The additional tables are Chucky’s Killer Pinball, The Thing Pinball, Dead by Daylight Pinball, Duke Nukem’s Big Shot Pinball, System Shock Pinball, and the newest, Texas Chainsaw Massacre Pinball, that I am reviewing tonight. Texas Chainsaw Massacre Pinball was released on the 6th of June 2024, and was developed and published by Zen Studios.

The Texas Chain Saw Massacre is a well-known American horror movie from the 1970’s, which follows a group of friends who fall victim to a family of cannibals. It features a villain, named Leatherface, who is a mentally disabled member of the aforementioned cannibals. His trademarks are his face mask and a chainsaw, and his physical appearance has gone through various transformations over the decades of his first appearance. He is committing violent acts that come from his family’s orders, and is also killing out of fear. Leatherface is a well recognized character of the slasher genre, and has influenced other horror characters that came to life after him.

Texas Chainsaw Massacre Pinball table follows the portrayal of the movie’s 2022 reboot and its main antagonist, by meticulously displaying the character and his chainsaw. By playing the table, you will terrorize new people that visit your town, and take out your victims one after another. Precisely aiming your shots plays a big role in successful massacring of your targets, but locking three balls unlocks the true bloodbath on the table. Do not let any of the victims escape, and beat your high score one session after another. Besides the table’s awesome graphical presentation, it also features a great sound design with its brutal sound effects. I have not encountered any bugs or glitches during my playthroughs, and the gameplay itself is a joy and will keep you coming back for more.

Texas Chainsaw Massacre Pinball was my first endeavour when it comes to the additional tables of Pinball M, and what an experience it is! If you do not mind that it features a presentation of the movie’s reboot, and not the original blockbuster, you will love playing this table. It looks great, plays tremendously, and is very gruesome, which we all like. Don’t we? In all seriousness, it is totally worth your five bucks, so make sure to grab it and extend your Pinball M experience with this heart-pumping DLC.
