Flash (Williams, 1979)

Flash

Flash

Presentation in February 1979

1st Machine designed by Steve Ritchie for Williams.

1st Machine featuring a dynamic Background-Sound.

1st Machine using FLASH-Lights, which got their Name therefore.

1st Machine with newly designed and much faster Flipper-Lanes.

1st Machine since Decades with a black Cabinet, which became soon standard.

With 19.505 Units built it's the most succesful Machine under the Williams-Sign and the 3rd most succesful Flipper-Game of all Time.

There were at least 4 more or less licensed versions around the globe - Zeus, Super-Zeus, Storm and Shock with identical artwork and the same playfield-design, sometimes missing some features. It's quite possible that if these versions would be added in the production-run FLASH could be the most-produced machine ever topping Addams Family's 21.270 units.

The above intro text acts a bit like a 'wiki' and can be edited by all Pinside members, including you!
