The only game I ever really played as a kid. I'm not a big pinball guy, but I had to have this one in my home. So ya, I am bias.
After owning this game for more than a year, I have to say I really enjoy going back to it from my other games. Ya, its a slow wide-body, but each time I return after not playing for a while, I find myself trying to determine a better scoring strategy. There are at least a few ways to put points up, but it seems the most consistent and safe is the upper left field to gain multipliers and possibly free ball. the upper right field with 3rd flipper can score bonuses and extra ball but not a lot of point generation. Targeting the lower left and right trapped balls and associated drop targets can put up points with the lower of the three left targets sometimes being a bit of a challenge. These are a tough way to generate points. And of course, the center captive ball is possibly the easiest, but also a high risk of drain. I freaking love it when I get a perfect dual-ball hit which sets off the lightning-ish flash and 'thunder' sounds. Again, the rebound from this shot has a high % of draining nad thus a bit riskier. this slower machine is a bit more relaxing as well, but maybe that's just age (ugh). My only wish is that there was more than 2 multi-balls. All the steps to get this to trigger can be a bit challenging, requiring first that you hit the center capture ball numerous times, then a skill shot to trap the ball (I'm pretty good at this one now), drop target hit, and again hitting the trapped ball behind that same drop target. It its a bit anticlimactic and I usually drain one of the balls not long after. I still have a strong bias to this game. It was the first and will be the last in my collection.
