    Maybe because I'm just too used to playing TPA all the time.
    Anyways the selection of tables on TPA is far superior than what Zaccaria currently has.
    Anyways each to their own

    When you say you've tried it, I hope you mean that you've played more than just the free version of Time Machine. I love TM, but it is in no way representative of the Zaccaria line of tables. It's actually an outlier and the table most unlike the rest of the set.

    I love TPA too, but I don't think they are far superior to Zaccs. A lot of TPA tables have deeper rule sets, but that's not what I always want out of pinball. Sometimes I prefer to simply snipe some targets without having to play for half an hour to reach the grand finale.
    TPA is kind of like the big Hollywood blockbuster, whereas Zaccaria is more like the cool European indie film. There's room for both in the world. I wish there were even more choices for great pinball sims.

    So what do you think of all the tables and the customisation of Zaccaria, or did you based your opinion on the free d/l?

    Like you said you might be conditioned to the TPA physics. To me it compares well with a real Pin and the ball control and aiming accuracy is really good. I would say it is up there with the best physics in a digital SIMs which include a well tuned VP physmod table (very good), Pro Pinball (the best) and TPA which is also good but is tuned to be too easy. Sometimes I feel parts of some Zacc tables need more bounce but that seems to be table specific and object specific so it probably due to rubber settings on objects (real pins also vary in this respect too of course). This is a really minor thing and more my personal preference though.

    The good news is we have all these options. Back when I first got my ipad 1, the only pinball option was Gameprom

    Also The Mummy, Aliens and Hippie, if you want drop targets.

    PS No pin emulator is perfect, but Zaccaria, Visual Pinball and PA are as close to a Holy Trinity as possible.

    I second this. Zankor is probably my favorite. I also really like Hot Wheels, Locomotion, Woods Queen and Robot. Stars Phoenix is incredibly weird (especially that soundtrack) but oddly compelling.

    Farfalla
    Hot Wheels
    Locomotion
    Black Belt
    Devil Riders

    Hard to pick a top 5. My next 5 would probably be Space Shuttle, Combat, Star God, Strike and Robot.
