A shallow game that makes up for it by being fast as all hell. Reminds me of a DMD version of BK2K in a way. I would be rating this a lot lower, but any game that features an extreme burning skeleton face is an instant classic in my book.

I walked up to this table expecting "Whirlwind Lite" and instead got a surprisingly fun absolute BEAST of a game! Absolutely love all the little silly details in the artwork and playfield.

I have a love-hate relationship with this stupid game. One side of me thinks it's a stupid gimmick game, and another side of me is compelled to do better at it and is completely addicted. Time will tell, I guess. Whatever it is, I'll definitely play this on location if I see it, at least.

QUIT PLAYIN WITH THE CLOCK!

This game is definitely in my top 3. Smacking the crap out of Rudy is probably one of the most satisfying shots in pinball.

Fun game with an absolutely absurd plotline. Love the blatantly racist/stereotypical callouts throughout. I love that kind of humor, for some reason.

Anyways, this game does the "fan layout" right. It's fast, simple, replayable, and just plain fun. One of my favorite DMD games.

Some of the funniest voice lines made for pinball, ever. Elvira and co. is just hysterical.

Other than that, this is a very fun and simple game that unfortunately gets a little old when you play it many, many times and learn what everything does and how to do anything. A spectacular visual and audio package alleviates this, fortunately. Sometimes I find myself coming back to this table just to hear the sounds.

"THA STEEF IN THA COFFIN! Hey, that's me!"

I feel like this would've been one of my favorite games if not for that damn genie lamp. Never before have I hated a playfield gimmick like this one...

I might be the only person on earth who doesn't mind the sounds on this game. I've definitely heard a lot worse. A revolutionary game for its time that might seem outdated, but if you look at it for what it did for pinball back then, I think you'll enjoy it more.

I know this is supposed to be the best game ever created or something, but I could never get into this one. It just feels like they took Attack On Mars and added a couple more modes and gimmicks. The trolls make me want to vomit...

Probably one of the most well-executed and funny themes in pinball history, though. Reminds me a lot of Monty Python and The Holy Grail.

I feel like this game would be an absolute classic if the ghosts weren't ruthless killing machines who show absolutely no mercy.

Maybe I'm a liiiiitle biased here. BUT THIS IS FAR AND AWAY THE GREATEST PINBALL TO EVER GRACE THIS GODFORSAKEN PLANET.

YOU GOT THA POWAH.

(but in all seriousness, simple/brutally fast gameplay + incredible artwork + THAT SONG = a happy me)

I think I seriously have a thing for games that focus entirely on their ramps, because I can NOT stop playing this one once I see it. A lot of people give this game crap because of its heavy simplicity, but that's the reason I really like it, as well as how absolutely, blazingly fast and brutal it is. Try to find one without the "lightning flippers" if you can. Also, this game deserves an award for by far one of the most ridiculous video modes to ever grace pinball.

OOOOH YEh GOT WONE ON DERE EH?

I'm a sucker for pins with bizarre themes, and this is no exception. The voice acting is hilarious in a stupid kind of way ("I'M CRAAAAAAEZY BOB!" "Radar, ehhhhhhh, assembled" etc.) and the story comes straight out of the mind of a hyperactive middle schooler. Normally I would detest this, but considering that a huge chunk of pinball games have movie licenses/otherwise generic plots, this is a godsend. Gameplay is gimmicky but fun with the wrecking ball and other unique toys. I think the main issue with this game is the difficulty, like most others have said, there are far too few shots required to do major things on this table. That said, I would say this is a great game to play on location, but probably not to own unless you really, really like it or if you have kids.

What can I say? Probably one of the best machines ever made. It kicks my ass every time, but I keep coming back for the satisfying as all hell game modes (something that a lot of other games neglect!), the numerous gimmicks that actually work well with the game, the great theming and the wonderful sounds and light show this damn thing puts on. If you see one in good shape, play it.
