Pinball Pulse: The Ancients Beckon is a Platforming game. Platform games task you with getting from point A to point B. The world you journey through is usually based on different levels, and populated with enemies, switches and lifts to be negotiated. As you work through each level you pick up various collectables that accrue score, special abilities and access to hidden areas.
Pinball Pulse: The Ancients Beckon can be played in a Singleplayer mode. Single Player Campaign games focus on one player's experience. Rather than collaborate with other players either locally or online, players progress alone. The campaign style of gameplay offers a connected series of challenges to play through. These chapters work together to tell a story through which players progress. Single player games are able to focus on one experience of a scenario, so that it is usually a richer, more visceral game.

Digital pinball always feels slightly inadequate compared to the tactile nature of a physical machine. But DSi-Ware's Pinball Pulse: The Ancients Beckon manages to hold its own. I was continually tempted to indulge in just one more game, to try and beat my high score. The realistic physics and Greek mythology-themed quests help to keep things interesting.
Pinball Pulse includes only one board, but it's been well laid out and presented, with a range of modes and quests for building up bonus points. It's a focused approach that says a lot about how well they understand the pastime.
