Sorry, Apollo 13. Your reign is over. Your record is broken.

Heist now has a 15-ball multiball!

Seems overkill but to each their own.

Does it suck just as much? Or even more?

Neat.

I'm ready to start "well actually"-ing other pinball nerds when they bring up Apollo 13

GLORIOUS!! I'm actually a big fan of the Apollo 13 multiball insanity, this has gotta be such a rush.

Does that mean you have to load the machine with 15 balls??!!

Yep!

Hah - the balls are delivered sequentially, giving you a real chance to keep all 15 balls alive for a good bit of time. It's exactly that... a heart-pounding adrenaline rush.

I think I woud just close my eyes, and keep hitting the flipper buttons. Take that, and that.

Man this is going to be a nuts multiball! I'm excited to see it. Hopefully Kevin can get to it on stream!

Always enjoyed A13

But always cringed when it counts down with the images of parts breaking from all that madness

But always liked it as a player / gimmick as well

I'm pretty excited for people to try this and looking forward to a stream! If anyone can make it through the Wizard lead-up!

As gstellenberg said - the way the mode and ball release is set up makes it way easier to keep the balls in play than the Apollo 13 "dump them all now".

#15 6 months ago

Cool!

With that many balls in play, it is highly likely that you can hit balls on the flippers at incoming balls to try and keep them all in play.
Catching 14 balls seems unlikely, but I guess if they will fit in the in lanes, it could happen.

Here's a look at the Big Final Heist, including the 15 ball multiball!

Seems like your standing there waiting to play more then anything, it's just my take on it. 15 ball multiball starts at the 8:10 mark, and then it's another minute and a half before the balls actually start coming out? And that voice "jackpot" is hard on the ears....
Sorry but it's just not for me, I'll stick with my measly Apollo 13 multiball.

I’m a fan of the narrative storytelling (particularly as a reward for making it to the end of the game) but you can double flip to skip the animations if you want to get right down to business.

#20 5 months ago

Very cool, thanks.

#21 5 months ago

Damn, 15. Now someone needs to one up with 16.

Man...at least A13 doesn't make you wait 10 minutes to stsrt...ouch.

#23 5 months ago

Too much of a good thing...4 ball multi ball is best, 5 at the most. But this is silly...

#24 5 months ago

I think the 15 ball release looks great. Not sure what the scoring rules are but I think having a playfield or jackpot multiplier equal to the number of balls in play would add extra excitement, along with a high score table for the Big Heist. Callouts would also be great, ie. "15X Jackpot!". Perhaps it's already in the works.

Probably would make all scoring in the game pointless other than 15MB

It is... in the best possible way!

The intros/outros are skippable, and the whole point is to take away your control, but if you want to pick out ways to criticize it as a concept, that's ok. If you ever get a chance to play it, I bet you'll be smiling just like Kevin was, you'll feel a huge sense of accomplishment for getting to it, and you'll feel even more accomplished if you're able to beat it.
