Gameprom, the 2010 winners of the elusive Apple Design Award in Games, have just launched Pinball HD 4 iPhone, an iPhone only version of the top-selling iPad game, Pinball HD. It’ll set you back $1.99 and, in return, provide you with three tables and a plethora of new and exclusive features.

The first of such new features is full 326ppi display support – meaning iPhone 4 owners will reap all the benefits of their immensely clear screen. This particular version of Pinball houses all three tables: Wild West Pinball, The Deep and Jungle Style Pinball. In addition, multiplayer support means “as many players as you like” (according to their press release) can challenge each other, assuming they are on the same Wi-Fi network.

“If you have an iPad, you already know how incredible playing Pinball HD can be. With the release of Pinball HD 4 iPhone, anyone with an iPhone 4, iPhone 3GS or iPod touch third generation can get in on the fun” writes the official press team. “Featuring the Retina Display on the iPhone 4, the graphics really pop and the new multiplayer feature brings a new level of involvement and thrills to what is already the best Pinball experience in the app store.”

Other features include an option between portrait and landscape view; built in help for each table; local and global high scores to bring out your competitive nature; unique soundtracks, sound effects and voices and camera tilt, which provides 3D dimensionality without the need of 3D glasses (although if you do own a pair, they’ll work with the application to give you a full sense of immersion).

Given its unique features, the application is not universal – meaning iPad owners of the application will have to shell out an extra $1.99 if they want to enjoy the game on their iPhone. In addition, it looks like multiplayer mode is only available on iPhone 4, iPhone 3GS, iPad or a third generation iPod Touch. It’s currently unconfirmed whether the iPhone 3G will support multiplayer mode. Confirmed: iPhone 3G, iPod Touch 2G and models older than this are not supported. The game is available to download now through iTunes. You can click on the link below the YouTube video to take you there.
