Barney (resized).jpeg

#1 5 months ago

Hi guys,
When I was looking Bowen Kerins' rulesheet for TZ, I have readed this:
Barney
shoot this hole to the right of the Left Ramp, and a large, purple dinosaur comes out from under the playfield, stealing the ball. This feature has been eliminated in production machines, due to a lawsuit from Data East; it has been replaced by an identical purple groundhog. Watch the display, as each shot increases the size of Barney's stomach. Five shots make the stomach explode for a 50M "Indigestion Bonus" and a round of Intestinal Mania.

Has anybody saw this feature while it was available on TZ? I'd like to see screenshots of Barney
Thanks in advance,
Peter

I think I seriously missed something all these years.
And it's whatever this guy's smoking.

Is that nice word or swear word?

I'm asking because swearing is STRONGLY FORBIDDEN in my topics

I've never seen it heard of this.
OK I found it on the rule sheet and I have no idea what the hell hes talking about. It makes no sense at all.

Yes, I was also wondering, since there's not a hole right of the left ramp.
He probably mixed it up with another pinball game

Seems like how drac washes your car in bsd. At least that's what the rule sheet says.

It was included as a joke. No, no prototype TZ has or had a Barney.

This is very real... in the Twilight Zone

Maybe because they were going to implement something like dinosaur, and Bally stole idea?
Since Barney doesn't really exist in TZ, I'm not even gonna think how could that happen

Thanks for letting me know!
