A great game for casual players, while also having just enough to bring back more experienced players for one more game. The rules and shots are easy to understand, but racking up a solid score can be more challenging. Earning the letters to spell p-a-r-t-y a-n-i-m-a-l (which gives the player multiball) is saved from game to game and player to player, which can result in one player doing all the work, and another player reaping the reward. It is a great game for both kids and adults, with a light, fun theme with funny sound effects and great music. There is a jukebox on the playfield, and when its three targets are hit, it switches songs. Overall, a pretty fun pinball machine, one which is great for quick games. If you can find a clean one for cheap, give it a try!

I may be biased towards this pinball machine and theme, as I've always been a big fan of both Nintendo and the Super Mario franchise. But I just can't get enough of this game. It's not a deep game, but it doesn't need to be. It's hard to find any way to describe it other than being pure fun. The theme is great, the flow is great, the shots are great.... everything is just great fun. There are several different objectives to shoot for, and a few different ways to rack up your score. There's also a few hidden things to discover as well. I love it, my 6 year old son loves it, my guests love it. It's a fun pin to keep going back to. Did I mention it was a lot of fun yet? Because it is. It's so much fun. Give one a try sometime if you like Mario, you won't be disappointed.

Shaq Attaq is a fun, light game. Its easy for new players to learn, and seems to be a favorite for new guests to gravitate towards. It has an easy multiball to achieve, and is a fun pin for both young and older players. The basketball hoop shot is a fun gimmick too. If you play Shaq Attaq expecting a deep ruleset and lots to shoot for, you will be disappointed. But if you take it for what it is, which is a fun, basic pinball machine with 90s cheesy-ness, you will have a solid time.

I enjoy playing this game. I never stay on it as long as other machines it seems, but its still fun. I don't mind the callout "shoot the pyramid", or its repetitiveness, but maybe that's because I usually play a few games and then move on. Overall, a fun game for sure though.

I enjoyed skateball, and can see why others rate it quite high, though I never really fell in love with it. A fun game for sure, just not my exact style. Has solid flow though, and an awesome backglass.

This one surprised me. I enjoyed playing it a lot more than I thought I would. Fun shots to make, and the gimmick of building the robot is great. Make sure to give it a try if you get the chance.

Very fun game. Easy to learn what to shoot, hard to string it all together for maximum points. A solid game that keeps you going back for more.

A decently fun game for what it is and when it was made. Not a lot to do on the play-field, but what is there is set up for a fun experience. Its a great game to just play without having to worry about in depth rules, what particular order to do things, etc. A good pin to use as an intro to pinball for guests that are new to playing. Artwork is awesome, pure 80's sci-fi. Sound effects are ok, though some might find them repetitive. If you can find one for a decent price, I would recommend it. I quite enjoy mine.

Cactus Jacks is a great party pinball machine. Its definitely best for beginners-intermediate players, but still offers enough to entertain more skilled players as well. It entertains guests of all forms, especially kids and drinking buddies. Its a pinball machine that is fun, and doesn't take itself too seriously. It is easy to jump into, but has enough different shots to be made that it keeps you going back for more games. Its nothing fancy, but definitely a ton of fun.
