Quoted from RonSS:
I might be pissed if other people had that opportunity even though the first time they've reached it was during contest, and now they can score better in this mode.
But what's stopping owners reach the wizard mode with the glass off to practice playing the wizard mode, or just experiment with different strategies to optimise their scores?
There really is no downside to having the OPTION to jump straight to a wizard mode in any game.
I also really like the new options of setting max no. of players per game, and being able to send the game straight to attract mode mid-game (hold left flipper and start buttons). No more having to plunge 12 balls at a show when some numpty has pressed start 4 times and walked off.
Long may it continue.
I just hope that the other games, not only those from sk8ball, start adding these kind of options and additional detail.
