Sony’s upcoming mobile game ‘Pinball Rocks HD’ has a rotating rock soundtrack with the hopes of rolling over some in-app music sales to gamers.

Sony has a new portable game in the works for music fans who can play a mean pinball.

Pinball Rocks HD, due later this month for iOS devices, is a free game that has a rotating soundtrack from bands such as Filter, The Sword, Chevelle, Red, All That Remains, Hatebreed, Nonpoint and guitarist Richie Kotzen.

The game, developed with Gameprom, marks Sony Music’s first attempt at a freemium game. Within the game are multiple ways players can spend a bit to upgrade their music and game experience.

If players hear a song that they like, they can seamlessly buy the music on iTunes from within the game. Also within the game are upgrades for premium pinball tables devoted to artists AC/DC, Alice in Chains, Bullet for My Valentine and Slayer ($2.99 each). Sony and Gameprom previously collaborated on the AC/DC and Slayer-themed pinball games, which have been available individually. They will remain available as standalone apps ($2.99 each) and as part of the Pinball Rocks HD compilation.

Among the power-ups available for purchase are multiball and ball saver (10 each for 99 cents) and extra ball (5 for 99 cents), with more to be added in subsequent releases.
