This week, ZEN Studios announced the release of a new title that combines the role playing and pinball genres into one, called Epic Quest. Officially speaking, this is a new table for the Pinball FX 2 and ZEN Pinball platforms, but the ZEN team prefers to think of it as a genre-blending title that makes it more than just your average pinball table. And, to some extent, that’s actually true, because it features a story and missions that continue on each time you play, and even if you lose, your experience and loot is carried over into your next game.

The table’s story follows a knight, named Max, as he fights monsters and journeys to rescue a princess (and all the rest of your basic knight in shining armour scenarios). Like most RPGs, there is gear to collect and experience points that level up the character from time to time. That, combined with a sense of humour that the folks at ZEN believe will get on the good side of Monty Python fans, brings together what should qualify as a unique pinball experience. Epic Quest is available for 240 Microsoft Points/$2.49 on the Playstation Network or $0.99 on the Apple AppStore and Android Marketplace.
