I have seen todays games as something to razzle and dazzle and thats fine, if you enjoy the sights and sounds by all means go.

But it would it be nice to have a company release a old em reissue,

Led scoring, chimes, EM play, swinging targets vari targets.

Simple shots.

They did. It didn't sell well. https://www.ipdb.org/machine.cgi?id=5239

Not to mention Beatles or all the Whoah Nellie knockoffs

I wasn't aware of the King of Diamonds remake. this thread may be a good placard for other machines using similar technology.

I found Whoa Nellie! Big Juicy Melons to be an enjoyable game, I like the way it handles 4 players using 1 set of score reels (resetting for each player), the LCD display on apron was used to be able to view other competitors score.

I'm pretty sure The Pabst Can Crusher & Primus are the exact same playfield layout with different art package, my guess would be scoring is the same also.

Homebrew, but this is a great updated throwback project.

If they had made the remake EM a decent player game with "normal" length flippers it would have been a different story I imagine

You’re looking for Breakshot. A modern take on a classic EM. It’s a fantastic game and extremely popular among players.

And they are affordable too.

Gottlieb system one games play like an EM but are solid state. I enjoy most of them. Still affordable too.

I saw a countdown on market place.

Thats one of the best sys 1! I'm working on restoring a countdown. Joker poker is fantastic as well.

Are these Solid State games with chime boxes still in them ?

2" flippers were the norm until 3" flippers were developed

It would be interesting to know the first 3" flipper game

System one games either have chimes or a primitive sound board. The good news is the sound board can be replaced with a chime box.

Now go home and get your chime box.

You working on a "homebrew" machine ? you can document your progress here: https://pinside.com/pinball/forum/forum/homebrew-pinball

A couple of my friends have projects there and are coming along quite nicely

Might be in the minority with this one. Wizard of Oz needs some nudging, to play it. WoZ can score points past the flippers.
