Due to the deeper rule set, you have to put quite a few games on this machine in order to understand the awesomeness. There is a lot going on here. Collect Steins in order to boost your advantage, and you can choose a Stein up to 3 times. Beer barrel lock and roller coaster lock are both physical locks. The roller coaster multi ball has an extremely long track for the ball to travel with curves and circles. Its so long and eye fooling that you have to time your shot correctly or your ball will drain. Another pinball first is the Stein Race where you use only your right hand to press the two flipper buttons located on the right side of the machine. This allows you to drink your frosty beverage while playing pinball. Many tents, modes, to visit, challenging shots, multi balls, blonds, boobs, beers, ramps, magna grabs, humor, and fun to be had.

Classic Pitch-N-Bat. A lot of fun. This one is top on my list as it has the ballplayers running the bases. Fun with 1 or 2 players.

Lots of challenging modes to complete. Humor, call-outs, and DMD animations are the best! Very challenging shots to make. A hidden gem of a machine that I find myself constantly playing. Many combo shots. Different ball launch, mode selection, and choice of regular or super game. The super game has a different rule set than the regular game. Game must have a color DMD to enjoy all the animations.

This is a classic system 11 game. Rolling fast fun!! The rules are not complicated. Very approachable. Unique features such as the left drain has a kicker that kicks the ball all the way to the top of the play field and the magna hold before shooting the ball up the wall. Great physical 3 lock multi-ball and display show before the 3 balls enter the play field. When you hear this in your sleep “Rock, Rock, Rollergames..” or “Don’t flip ... Flip” then its time to add this one to your collection.

Yabadabadoo!! Challenging shots and good rule set. Even though based on the movie its the same music and theme as the cartoon. Bowling night, lodge night, Dino, and of course “Hay Mr. Slate how about a bonus?” Very family oriented machine and play.

If you like smoking hot girls, a Ferrari, guns, action, and smooth shots-- then this is your game!! Save the world through pinball. The light show and call outs are engaging. There is even a secret hideout multi-ball. For the price range, No pin does it better!!

Let’s Party Dude!! Total System 11 feel with DMD animation. Enjoyable and a good game to have in a larger collection. Shots are straight forward. Very approachable machine for someone who just wants to play some pinball.

Interesting layout and great for beginners. Its a system 11 type game in a WPC 89. The rule set is way simple and straight forward. Not much animation on the DMD screen. The game is enjoyable for a few plays. Everyone loves Gilligan!! Decent shots to make, but overall its on its own island and over time will drive you coconuts!!

This game rocks the boat! The theme integration is on the hook. Fun, fast, funny, and the fish topper knocking around during game play rounds out the excitement!! Where else are you going to see a fish playing the drums? Cast again and again because this game will keep you wanting to play another game.

Good for a few games at the local arcade. The rules are extremely cut and dry. Nothing stands out on this game. Collect the trip, cruse, car, and tv. Showcase Bonanza! Rinse & Repeat, a lot!

This is a unique game. Less random ball action due to no pop bumpers. The game challenges you to think what to get in order to build items like a toaster gun to shoot toast at the dog. Due to the uniqueness it does take a few extra games above the normal to grasp the rule set. Once rules are understood it’s a blast. The time machine mode is out of place and detracts from the video mode of the actual game the video mode was copied from. Music tempo shifts to drastically. The interactive back glass adds to the game. Hop on the magic bus for the fun.

This is one lethal pinball!! The speed, targets, and video modes are extremely fun. One video mode plays like a Track and Field button action game where you have to beat up the bad guy. Another is like Hogans Alley where you shoot the bad guys. The “toys” are the video modes you play. Music is enjoyable and takes game play to another level. The fact that back in 1992 you select the music shows how innovative this machine was. Great humor and has all the characters from the movie.

Shocking, Startling, and Amazing!! This game is very addictive. Takes a few games to figure out the rules. Game play is pretty deep. You’re in a drive in movie and some guy starts creeping in on you and your hot date, so go out and beat him up. The “Move your Car” bit is classic. Of course you have to kiss your date to progress to multi-ball. Challenging to keep your ball in play. Unique skill shot, very challenging. Call outs and humor are top of the line.

Bugs and crew!! Draws you in to play, but after a few games you realize it’s a rabbit hole.

This game is on location down the street from Fairleigh Dickinson University in Morristown, New Jersey at The Game Vault. The rule set is simple compared to modern games. The classic sounds are great. Game play does get repetitive. Overall an enjoyable classic.

If action is what you want then LAH is your pin. The move bombed but the pinball is "The Bomb". The game play incorporates the movie very well. Fun to play with a good rule set. Very tough to complete all the modes. Has many features of the more expensive machines at a fraction of the cost. The crane swinging your ball around is spectacular. While playing you get an overload of sensation as the machine shakes, throws your balls around, and has fast play. Woman love shoes & handbags while guys love pinball and woman. LAH belongs in your lineup.

Extremely fast pinball machine with straight forward rules. Great skill shots, incredible call outs, a cannon that shoots the pinball across the play field, together with whipping fast looping and ramps make this game incredible. The game ties in the movie perfectly. Call outs are performed by Arnold Schwarzenegger. When dropping kids off at school I’ll say “get out” and they know it’s a quote from this game. “I’ll be back” for another game.

Felt like an amusement ticket redemption game while playing more than a pinball machine. Enjoyed the artwork, light show and call outs. Simply stated: it’s a show game rather than a players game. This caper is busted.

Played this game at Sunshine Laundromat in Brooklyn, New York. Really excited to see it in the wild. Took me a while to figure out that the 13 ball multi-ball is a roll-over thing. Overall the play filed is way to tight, no ball room. The music is very annoying unless you are in 13 multi-ball. Neat rocket and moon “toy”. The video mode reminded me of Atari’s lunar lander video game. Ball plunger is unique and the call outs are enjoyable. Mission accomplished.

This game lets the genie out of the bottle with a lot of exciting game play. The story line is fantastic. The giant lamp and genie really stand out. The artwork on the back glass, play field, and cabinet is stunning. The DMD animation is top notch keeping the story line going. The sounds and music set the mood and ambiance while playing the game. Making the lamp spin, striking the genie, disappearing pinball into the play field, and the out lane ball save is remarkable. The call outs are on point. This is a total package pinball that Williams put together. Hard game to walk away from. As stated at the Harem “boys will be boys!”

This is one of those EM games that for some reason keeps me coming back for another game. The baseball theme is a lot of fun. Traditional scoring with separate score of runs. Easy rule set. Its just a fun EM game.

Most notable is that its digital with traditional EM sounds. Made during the transition phase of pinball. Game play has many shots to shoot for. Played a few games and then moved on as it appeared it was rushed into production before full thought was put into the game.

Many features for an EM. Has a cool back glass. Theme ties in well with having to hit all the targets for squadron "A", "B", "C", and "D". Fun EM game to play with some decent speed on the ball to keep you attentive. Has many targets to shoot for. Neat features such as gates to open for an extra launch of the ball, bonus multiplier, and shooter skill shot for the 5,000 points.

Music artwork without any music rule set for game play. Guess back then Williams figured everyone was zoned out anyway to figure this out. The game has great add-a-ball features. Can get up to 10 balls and when you flip the score reel a 100,000 is lit in the upper right hand corner of the back box.

The artwork is one of a kind. Rules are very straight forward. Great playable and approachable machine. Don’t let the birdman scare you away from playing this 70's classic. Great bang for the buck.

The artwork is what draws you in. The call-outs are cool. Bart tells you to “shot it” at the wrong time causing you to miss the ramp shot for the mystery shot. The way you have to lock the ball for multi-ball is a challenge. Back in 1990 it was a huge hit. Rule set is easy and becomes repetitive. The back glass is great as an art piece.

If you like smoking hot girls, fast cars, money, and a lot of action then Golden Eye Pinball is for you. Quick reaction is required to make the skill shots to complete the Bond mission. The entertainment factor is one only a James Bond fan will appreciate. The humor is all 007 from the initial ball launch using your Walter PPK to the sex challenges that have to be completed before she squeezes you to death in bed. The modes takes you through a fast pace car, helicopter, tank, and train mission, always keeping an eye on the hotties. Of course Q and M help you out. You get your missions from the stereo while driving your Aston Martin DB9. Make sure you “shoot to kill or be killed.” “ A license to kill is also a license to die.” “Thank you very much Mr. Bond.” Many famous one liners during game play. Two fantastic toys are the satellite dish that captures the ball if you shoot the pop-up ramp for multi ball and magna ball save. The magna ball save pulls your ball back into play keeping the action going instead of waiting for a ball re-launch. Best Sega title. A small production coupled with the ones viewed were fully enjoyed has me on the hunt.
