PlayStation 4 digital cover.

The player plays the role of various fantasy characters in their quest to stop the revival of three powerful spirits who will take over the realm. But, rather than play the characters directly, you play a pinball version of each character on various pinball tables. Each character has different special abilities.

I got this game as part of a Humble Bundle. I decided to play it because I really liked Pinball Quest, and this game is in the same vein.
