    hi guys,

    just purchased the getaway pinball and i really like it. The supercharger ramp is lot of fun.

    id like to get a 2nd machine that has cool features like the Getaway machine.

    Would like to stick to 3-5k budget.

    any names in mind? i don't care about movies or theme, etc. I just want a *fun game* in that budget.

    thx

    Buy a no Fear. Cheap ($3k or under) and very similar to HS2 (flow/three flippers/fun with magnets)

    The supercharger is a unique toy that only appears in one other game that also happens to be a Steve Ritchie title. That would be the Stern Star Wars Premium. A little out of your price range but very cool. It is like the supercharger but on crack.

    Well you could get High Speed the original. It’s a little slower so might not be your taste. What was originally supposed to be Getaway is what became Rollergames that plays a little faster.

    No Fear also a good suggestion.

    You should check out NASCAR which basically has an oversized supercharger. I’d rather play Getaway though. I’m not sure what the price point is on NASCAR at the moment.

    IMHO you dont want two games that are similar
    if you like Getaway, find other games from the same era
    White Water, Creature from the black lagoon, fishtales, funhouse are all games you should also enjoy

    The thread is literally called "Another Pinball Like Getaway!"

    I think he wants another pinball like Getaway.

    Forgot about NASCAR but that one doesn’t do anything for me. The Getaway is much better.

    And he can buy whatever he wants

    'Forum; a place of discussion'
    I see no harm in offering other titles that he may also enjoy

    Nascar or Mustang

    to look at only games 'like Getaway' is limiting
    the OP is new to this hobby, that he is not looking at only NIB means I like him already
    but IMHO a collection should have some variety, early to mid 90's had a lot of different games to choose from
    Paseb i would also not get two games from the same designer, Steve Ritchie (the designer of The Getaway) has made many great games, but they can have a sameness about them

    #12 32 days ago

    I always got a similar feeling as Getaway playing T2.

    Agreed!!!

    Nascar disagrees with you.

    It's easy to forget that one. That huge race track loop takes up so much space that it drastically shrinks the playable part of the playfield. Getaway and Stern Star Wars Premium did it much better by putting it above the playfield. It was a great idea on paper that just didn't pan out in my opinion.

    Will also agree on No Fear, excellent pin for the money. I had Getaway and No Fear right next to each other as they paired very well.

    #18 32 days ago

    I would get NASCAR

    LW3 is a 2-bit knock off of Getaway and T2. Honestly, I like it better than Getaway (which is why it is at my friends house). It is fun and fast, just like HS2. Other Steve Richie games are good too, including Rollergames, Black Knight 2000, and No Fear. The turbo charger gizmo is pretty unique though. Star wars (high price) or NASCAR has it.
