    Qvadriga. This game where you attempt to manage a chariot racing team to glory is simple but deep; my first attempt, after a few early successes, saw my team's fortunes nosedive once my top...

    Bang Bang Racing is really, really good fun, a simple, grittily satisfying, cartoony racer reminiscent of Stock Car from the 1980s. But either I'm being dense or one can only play with keyboard,...

    I agree with Stirbelwurm; the moving camera is horrible. I think I changed it on World War Hulk but have otherwise stuck with the default.

    Haven't played this week, think I'll go rectify that now.

    Clawed my way into the top 20, at least for a bit. This is a fine table, a really nice balance between just keeping the ball in play and sussing out its secrets. And the cobra coughing up the ball is...

    I'm just getting to grips with it, and what's off-putting for me is that there are a lot of fiddly changes to what I'd considered a pretty functional UI; I'll get used to it, but the look seems quite...

    I finally managed to shake the iron grip that the Euro Trucks had on me and sample this table. Tons of fun. and I'm glad we've got another week on it.

    I got it from a bundle last week, and it has totally absorbed my free time. It is so zen. It's also one of those games that people love making mods for.

    Well, Euro Truck Simulator 2 is as fun as all those folk say it is; at least, causing carnage on the M4 while learning how to 'drive' a big container lorry in it is.

    Yeesh. At the moment I'm finding this table more frustrating than V12. It looks lovely, but it's very busy visually and the day/night thing is rather confusing. I'm certain that playing V12 actually...

    I'm sure I wouldn't have persisted with V12 if it weren't the 'weekly table'; it's awkward and hard to get a rhythm going. The way the back left flipper can easily send the ball to drain down the...

    As if V12 wasn't hard enough already, I managed to find a way to lose the ball down the right. I think that's a hint for me to move on. I did have one decent run, which included an enjoyable section...

    Ooh, it reminds me of late '90s console game Brunswick Pro Bowling in terms of 'let's have another go'. Nice. And V12 is indeed tough.
