Black Knight, first upper playfield. BlackHole, first lower playfield. Haunted House first upper/lower playfield (I think). Space Shuttle, first playfield toy. High Space, first game with a story to accomplish. Checkpoint (First DMD). Addams Family biggest seller ever. Humpty Dumpty, first game with flips.

Firepower
1) the first pinball with the "lane change" feature in which the right flipper button controlled the lit/unlit status of rollover lanes,

2) the first SS pinball to have a multiball feature. Attaining three balls in play at the same time was an uniquely attractive reward.

3) the first playfield animation. This "countdown to multiball" animation was innovative and amazing in 1980. It was also near the limit of the electronic and computational capacity of the hardware.
