Quoted from pezpunk:
customers would see a brand new game. seems like it could have been an attractive proposition to an op.
Indeed, that was the selling point... to quote the flyer for Space Panther (which actually has English on it!):
"With MacPinBall MULTIGAME (r) you save nearly 60% renovating your model, because you only need to change the playfield, backglass and game EPROM memory."
Another company tried that about 13 years ago and closed the doors shortly afterwards...
Looking at the Space Panther flyer, the playfield on that game looks very interesting... two ramps take the ball into a strange flipperless upper playfield... I can't see any pics of the actual playfield for that game on the net... just the flyer! I just grabbed my flyer out and took some close-up shots of the playfield on it... never really looked at this game before!
Here's those close ups of the flyer if anyone's interested... it looks like the ball, once on the upper level, can fall through one of three holes, two of which trigger switches not accessible any other way... or roll back down the ramps, or down a wireform to feed the right flipper...
This game just made it to my wishlist!
