I have an idea for a feature which I think could be very fun for home play, sharing here to see what others think and if it could be a good addition to Rick and Morty:
What: A handicap override, for certain players in a multiplayer game (for home owners). For example in a 4 player game, players 1, 2, and 4 would have default settings, player 3, would have this activated to make the game and scoring easier.
Why: This would make friendly competition more balanced for friends, partners, husbands, wives, etc not as skilled at pinball.
How it could work:
Once the option is activated and profiles set up in overall settings (you choose default setting profile, and handicap setting profile), essentially hold the right flipper button in for 3 seconds after adding a player. This would toggle the handicap on or off for the most recent player. The pin would toggle between two sets of settings: 1) Default settings, 2) Handicap override settings which makes the game easier. For Rick and Morty, this could mean:
-Longer ball saves
-Easier multiball locks
-More accessible (fewer shots) mode starts and completions
-Easier magnasave charge and slower drain
-More initial pre-completed punches on adventure card
-Larger jackpot values
-Higher value mega seeds, more mega seeds per dimension
-Fewer spins to charge portal gun
Owners could have fun finding the right balance for their family/home environment to find the parity. You could even take this idea further and have another non-default setting to make everything difficult.
What do others think?
