On the Aya continent, animals have lived peacefully since the Great War. The momongas are a small and peaceful tribe of flying squirrels, living on a group of small islands on the river Yana. They make their homes in the hollow trunks of giant Sequoia trees, and generally get out of the way of trouble.

One day, the village was raided by a group of owl bandits. The bandit leader, General Kuton, is a renegade general from the owl kingdom. The owls took every momonga and disappeared. All except one – the young Momo barely escaped Kuton’s claws.

Momo was saved by Panda, one of the nomadic pandas that roam the world. He healed Momo and took the little squirrel to a sanctuary up in the mountains.

Our adventure begins here – with a little flying squirrel and an old panda. Will they be able to stop the forces of evil? Join Momo in the first episode of an epic adventure to save his tribe in the game Momonga Pinball Adventures! Make new friends, explore the world, and defeat the evil owls!

Lovely looking cartoonish graphics, but kinda boring gameplay. Dunno what it is, kinda enjoyed it for a few mins, then got bored

........................................Moderator comment.......................................

Agree with you totally, though I'm sure some will enjoy the game (probably younger kids). I played the game briefly when I purchased the game last year, but found it was not what I expected. The only reason I've played it again was so that I could take some images and remind myself what the game was like for the review. If you want a decent computer simulation of a pinball game you can't go wrong with any of the following:
Pinball FX3, Pinball Arcade, Pinball Parlor, Zaccaria Pinball, Pinball HD Collection and Stern Pinball Arcade . If you have a VR head set you can also get a couple of those in VR; i.e. Pinball FX2 VR and Zaccaria Pinball - VR. I highly recommend Pinball FX 3, Zaccaria Pinball and Pinball Arcade. All three come with a free base game that includes at least one free table, plus the rest are relatively cheap. Pinball Arade sells them in season packs, which although seem quite expensive, when you work out individual tables they only cost a few pounds/dollars each. All tend to be on 50% off or more over the big sale periods such as the Christmas and summer sales.

Can't get this again because even though I log into, and even 'like and share' the giveaway it doesn't open the link to download for me anymore :(
And I don't give any email to any place anymore after being spammed, and yes I know they say they won't, but they get their lists stolen too.

I'm giving this one a thumbs down. It's probably designed for mobile (I didn't read the whole description) - if so it doesn't translate well to PC. It's just frustrating. There are some instructive texts along the way which don't display long enough to read. The only explanation of controls seems to be on the opening screen, and that only applies to a joystick or gamepad. Maybe if you have one the game works better.

I like pinball games, but the gameplay on this is not responsive enough to be accurate. The kicker is that the entire field moves with the 'ball/squirrel' so it's constantly jerking every which way, making it nearly impossible to focus on the 'ball' and operate the flippers for a predictable result.

I won't be keeping this one.

........................................Moderator comment.......................................

I agree with all you say. Unfortunately, I purchased the game as soon as it was released as I tend to collect pinball and others such as breakouts and shmups without first checking them out. Of all the pinball games I have, this one would be put in the bottom 10 (I have over 300 pinball games/tables), that said, I do think it's great for those who are new to computer-simulated pinball games, and of course the young 'uns. :) Thank you for your feedback.

Fun game! By the time I figured out I could collect the stars while flying, most of them were past. :)

........................................Moderator comment.......................................

You can replay previous sections of the game, just scroll back when the level selection screen is presented (see the eigth images posted in my review above). There's also an option to replay a level at the end by pressing the curled arrow icon that you can see at the bottom of the play area (level complete screen, see image number 11 in my review above).

Ha - I am not very talented but this is something fun.

DL and installation without a problem under Win10.
Nice graphics and storyline.

Thank you very much.

Fun game but to really enjoy, I suggest using a joystick or better yet, a game pad. Arrow keys can be used, but are hard on the fingers (and the keyboard).
It has been a long time since I have seen a PC pinball game, so I am glad to be able to get one here.

Thanks Game GAOTD and MPC!

The Game:
Review 1:
If you think pinball has nothing to do with adventuring then this little squirrel is about to prove you wrong. Before we continue, those allergic to cuteness should stop reading since the colourful world of Momonga will make your head spin.
First off, what is a Momonga? Well, it's a Japanese dwarf flying squirrel that just so happens to be one of the cutest critters ever created. Don't believe me? Click here to see for yourself. Anyway, you play Momonga Pinball Adventures by flicking Momo (the most heroic squirrel in town) around with pinball flippers to solve puzzles and advance through stages. Additionally, some parts make the bite-sized fellow glide to his next destination. The gameplay couldn't be simpler since all you do is play pinball and tilt the GamePad to steer while flying (or optionally tap buttons if you prefer). As you progress, you'll come across various situations that provide decent challenges to overcome. At the beginning, evil owls invade your peaceful home so you train with a wise panda who helps get you into shape to begin your journey. Then, you meet a friendly mole-rat, rescue a firefly, and break into owl territory where you confront those dastardly owls once and for all. When you finally get to battle the owls, the gameplay becomes quite challenging and unique as you work together with your firefly buddy. Overall, the combination of satisfying mechanics and intuitive controls makes this one rewarding pinball adventure.
As I already mentioned, Momonga Pinball Adventures takes place in a delightfully colourful world. What makes it come alive are the lovable characters, charming pieces of music, cartoony sound effects, vibrant palettes, and cheerful animations (especially when you see Momo celebrate at the end of each stage). All of this adds up to create a world that'll make you smile throughout if you have even the slightest sense of wonder. Sure, it may not be groundbreaking, but the amount of care put into crafting it definitely shows.

pinball_032
The entire story campaign can easily be completed in one sitting which is kind of disappointing. There are only nine stages to work through and each one takes a few minutes to overcome. The later stages will probably take you longer especially if you have to retry after losing all of your hearts. On the plus side, you can replay these stages to accomplish four optional tasks each such as collecting all of the stars, finding secret rooms, and having a limit for how many times each flipper can be used. On top of these, you unlock three mini-games in the form of flying around as the panda as he eats desserts, playing a pachinko machine, and testing your skills in an arena (which is my favourite since it contains loads of non-stop challenges). There's also a leaderboard for every mini-game and stage. Therefore, if you want to stay in the world of Momonga after you've done the story then there are plenty of reasons to stick around.
Throughout my journey, I came across a few bugs that took me out of the experience. Thankfully, none of them were game-breaking. One issue had the audio become distorted and loud which made me shut off and restart the Wii U to fix it. Also, the flippers would sometimes get stuck in the extended position. Whenever this happened, I just tapped the corresponding button and they returned to normal. However, I did lose the odd life from this problem because I wasn't always aware that they were stuck before it was too late.
Momonga Pinball Adventures is an enjoyable little game that I highly recommend to anyone with a soft-spot for cuteness and a thirst for simple yet challenging gameplay. In the end, it may be short but you won't regret your journey with Momo when it's all over.

Review 2:
As I loaded up Momonga for the first time, it occurred to me that a flying squirrel was a strange choice of animal for a game based on pinball. Surely there were more suitable spherical animals out there, but all I could come up was either a hedgehog or an armadillo, both of which had pinball games based on the creature back in the days of the Mega Drive. Said hedgehog needs no introduction (he’s blue and has a fox follow him EVERYWHERE), but the armadillo was in Psycho Pinball. As a massive fan of both, how did the latest animal-pinball hybrid hold up?
Momo the momonga and his tribe were recently attacked by a group of vicious owls. Momo managed to escape, but was the only one and now needs to get back to his tribe in order to rescue them. After being saved by Panda the panda – not a typo – and trained up in the ways of pinball, Momo sets off to reclaim his tribe’s land from the owls. Upon his journey he meets various different characters and it’s all a very generic story. What separates it from the rest is the amount of heart and charm the game has, even in its very short run time. You can have the story complete within an hour. That is with missing out all the challenges and extra minigames however, so don’t let that put you off.
Upon starting the first level and using the flippers a few times though, I noticed the physics in the game were a bit disappointing compared to more polished pinball games. However, once I realised the levels were designed to combat this by including curved walls and tunnel runs to direct the ball to where it needed to go, this quickly became a non-issue, and as a result the level design should actually be praised. Decent graphics and a colourful palette all add up to make this a visually impressive game.
pinball_052

pinball_060
Throughout playing the game, I can’t help feeling like I had a huge grin on my face. Whether this be from the characters, gameplay elements or even the loading screens, everything about this game won me over. The loading screens in particular are great. They would always contain a bit of info about the development of the game, facts about flying squirrels (did you know there are 43 species of flying squirrels and the momonga weighs only 200 grams?), but my personal favourite has to be the one that simply said: ‘Did you know that you are awesome.’ You, the player, cannot helped but be wrapped up in the charm of this game and this loading screen is the icing on the cake.
Another of the loading screens states that Momonga started out as an infinite runner game before the story and separate levels were added. A quick look on their website will show you that this is Episode 1 of the adventure and with the cliff-hanger that occurs at the end, I for one will be waiting for the sequel with great anticipation.
But all the above is moot if the game does not have the gameplay to back this up. Thankfully, Momonga does in bucket loads. In only 12 short levels, nine story and three minigames, you will be required to navigate various pinball ‘tables’, defeat bosses, rescue friends, complete flying sections and compete in an endless arena mode. One of the biggest surprises came in one of the story levels where you encounter a mole rat named Guaka, who can also roll up into a ball thus giving you a multi-ball level. The game is constantly throwing new ideas at you, but each one fits with the pinball aesthetic and are a genuine surprise to see how they are adopted within the lore of the game.
Another element ‘borrowed’ from pinball games is the competitive element of topping leaderboards, and each level in the game has a specific leaderboard. It can be difficult however to find your score in the list though, as you are unable to scroll through them, and it will only show the scores someway above yours – not necessarily the Top 10, just a random bunch of scores instead. It also appears to be lacking an overall leaderboard where all scores are added up to produce a final score.
Sadly as well, the sound and sound effects were not borrowed from classic pinball. In short, there are only a couple of tunes in the game, one of which is used way too often in all the menus and will start to run its course long before you unlock all the achievements.
pinball_062

pinball_063
For the price of £4.79 there are 10 achievements to earn, none of which are too tricky, only requiring patience and a little bit of skill. The hardest task will be from trying to complete every challenge within the game, but after a couple of tries of each they should be relatively easy to beat. Besides, this repetition will help you to grind out another achievement for playing 500 levels, although this counts a play as starting the level rather the finishing.
Momonga was a true joy to play and a real hidden gem in the ID@Xbox program. For a game that can be completed within an hour, it has so much variation and puts some 30-hour open world games to shame. Couple this with the cliff-hanger ending and the game will keep you guessing at what’s next. But it has a lot of replayability too, especially for those chasing top scores and achievements. Sure, the game is flawed with bugged leaderboards and average physics, but it’s one of those games where the positives far outweigh the negatives, with the major positive being fun. And this game provides an immense amount of just that.

Conclusion:
A cute and colorful looking pinball game with adventure elements. I love pinball games, they often remind me of my misspent youth playing pinball in the precursors of the console arcades full of more familiar computer games. Since the advent of computer simulated pinball I’ve amassed hundreds of pinball games and although I love pinball games I found Momonga Piball a little boring. Don’t get me wrong, the game is okay, and in my opinion a great introduction to computer pinball especially for the kids, but as a long time pinball player I found the pinball mechanic too sluggish and didn’t represent the physics of a simulated pinball game. Still, this is a game I’d at least check out to see if you like the mix of pinball and text based adventuring, of which there is a lot of the latter. 6 out of 10 from me.

There are thousands of subscribers to the game giveaway of the day every weekend which makes this an ideal forum for giving developers new or fresh ideas as to what their consumers (i.e you) would like to see in a game. For example, you could suggest extra content such as better or more original mini-games, or a level editor that you would like to see that would make it more appealing to you. Maybe you think the graphics are a little dated and are in need of re-skinning, or maybe you've just had enough of the genre and want to see something different or something with more originality? Giving such feedback instead of saying nothing or just saying this game is rubbish or good may bring more developers to the site, which could mean more and better games. Would 'you' give away thousands of copies of a game (or extra content for a game) away to a community that complains all the time instead of giving useful feedback? It only needs a few moments of your time. I believe this site could be transformed into a hub for developers to visit and take away useful information on what you the consumer wants in their games; if only the community would be more forthcoming in their opinions of the games they are getting for free. If the giveaway doesn't grab you, then please move on to the next giveaway, or check out the forums HERE, HERE and HERE, where a few members of the community post details of various free games and free game sites as well as links to various indie bundle sites etc; you never know, you may find something that really interests you.
If you miss today's game giveaway you can always get the game via MyPlayCity 24/7 HERE; or If you prefer to purchase the game you can get it HERE via Steam for £4.75/$5.99.
Problems getting the game to work:
If you're having problems installing or activating or getting Momonga Pinball to work please visit the FAQ's Thread HERE and read through the communities comments because sometimes fixes have already been posted, for example, a common issue seen since the Themida wrapper was introduced three years ago is that some community members installation of the game are blocked by their security because Themida code has been known to hide malware, (usually an error message is flagged for example 'The executable is corrupted' even though in reality it is not); so as a precaution some anti malware programs will block and even delete the suspect installation files even though the files (i.e the setup, read me and setup.gcd files are actually totally free from malware. This issue can be solved either by rebooting your computer in safe mode with networking or a quicker method is to temporarily turn off your security software to allow the installation. You could also try whitelisting the setup.gcd file. In the almost 11 years this game giveaway site has been operating there has 'never' been a game given away that was infected with malware.
