Zen Studios is adding two new tables to Pinball FX3 in honor of Halloween this year. With the Universal Monster Pack, players will gain access to recreations of two classic Williams tables. The first is “Creature from the Black Lagoon 3-D,” and the second is “Monster Bash.” Both tables are available as pure replicas, but those players seeking something more thrilling can also enjoy remastered versions of each.
Monster Bash introduces players to a rock and roll take on the classic Universal monsters. Dracula is their host and he’ll even tear into a sick guitar riff if players are skilled enough. Frankenstein will play some tunes on his keyboard if activated, and even the Wolfman has some slick moves. The physical table currently sits at number 7 on the list of most popular/sought after games of all time, so digital fans would do well to give it a try.
Creature from the Black Lagoon 3-D isn’t quite as popular as its cousin, but it’s still got plenty of style on offer. The game sports sixteen play modes, “Dot-mation” versions of scenes from the film, all the tunes and inside jokes left fully intact (“MOVE YOUR CAR!”), and an animated creature in the center of the table instead of a static holographic card. It’s only #26 in the rankings, but still a worthy addition to any fan’s collection nonetheless.
The Universal Monster Pack hits Pinball FX3 on October 29 for PC, PlayStation 4, Xbox One and Nintendo Switch.
