So I'm fixing up this King Rock for a customer. I'm working my way down the playfield, cleaning it up. He just wanted it working, but I can't let it go back in the shape it's in now.
Anyway, I'm to the double-spinner area, and the game has blank white spinners. How milquetoast is that? So I check the IPDB and it looks like factory was just blue lines on either side. Not much better than blank, IMO. I have always wondered about "animated" spinners. These are the ones like in Kiss that have Gene's face on the front and his tongue on the back, so that when it spins, Gene is "animated" into sticking his tongue out.
Are there any other games with spinners like that? With a card theme? I have basically resigned to creating something myself. So does anyone have any advice about what you can do with a 2-frame sequence that provides the player with some action for hitting the spinner?
My first thought was having the suicide king push the blade further into/behind his head, so it looks like he's stabbing himself in the temple over and over.
What do you think?
