Just signed up for pinbox 3000 kickstarter (as a result of pintastic), why not Pintastic kickstarter too.
The Sanctum crew loaded 27 games just to run a tournament. Tremendous effort and well appreciated. A future kickstarter for their move to a larger location is in the works.
Full Throttle - This is the real deal . The game is a winner. Most exciting new game at show. Without even knowing any rules, anyone can walk up to this game and enjoy the layout and music.
I can't say that the machines ran flawlessly, but the issues were few and minor IMO. Slingshots not adjusted properly. Center ramp shot being possibly affected by spinning disc (ball jumping) in front of the entrance.
I'd be interested to hear if they had any issues that require manufacturing to be delayed or adjustments to be made.
P3 - first time i got to play this and am generally impressed, especially in-game mechanics like ball feeds from under playfield kickers and the multiball ball-lock mechanism. The ball is back on the flipper in a hurry (for the Lexy setup). Gerry said in his seminar that add-on modules / games should be around 1.5k. Could be a real game changer for the budget if quality games are available for that price.
Feedback : The playfield graphics looked a little washed out when trying to get down to a low angle. The more upright you stood , the better it looked. Needs a little more "pop" (possibly shaker effect) when u hit an onscreen target. Martian "splats" from RFM come to mind. Maybe a burp for the beer mode. Beer drinking mode is the greatest. No flipper hold multiball rocks. Lights out multiball is awesome too. The ability to change the lighting and artwork of the playfield on the fly to compliment the mode, even if there isn't an onscreen target to go for, is a monumental design tool.
Great show that needs to continue. As a community, i hope we have a chance to support this, should it be needed. Many thanks
