I just downloaded the Moon Knight pinball game this weekend. It's pretty awesome. You've got to buy the basic Marvel pinball set for it to work, but you end up with seven tables featuring Spidey, Wolverine, Iron Man, Blade, Ghost Rider, Thor, X-Men and Moon Knight so it's cool if you like pinball or any of those characters.
For allies, Frenchie, Marlene and Crawley are all incorporated into the table along with the Moonwing helicopter which drops multiple balls onto the table for high-scoring chaos. Then, there's Khonshu who floats around like a little blue ghost making jokes and either encouraging you or laughing at you when you screw up (he sounds a lot like Mark Hamill's Joker.)
The villains in the game show up when you score on certain ramps and then Moon Knight might fight them as you play. How well he does in the fight is determined by how well you play or on which areas of the table in you score in. Midnight and Bushman show up to attack in animated fight scenes while Midnight just pops out of the table to screw with your ball and Morpheus doesn't actually make an appearance. Instead, scoring the Morpheus mission causes black smoke (Ebon Energy) to cover parts of the table making it hard to see the ball. There are also a couple of minigames you can score that involve punching or shooting thugs with a pinball-firing crossbow. I haven't uncovered his mission but, apparently, the evil god Set (or Seth based on the statue next to Khonshu) also shows up if you defeat all the villains. I haven't reached him yet.
I'm not a huge pinball fan, but I'm pretty psyched by this table. The voice-acting is really good, and a lot of quotes are pulled from the comics (though Bushman sounds more like a big, dumb oaf than a crafty assassin.) It'll cost about $20 to download this and the basic Marvel set but, for a Moon Knight fan, I think it's totally worth it.
