My vote is The Shadow.

What''so your choice?

#3 6 years ago

Shadow is my choice too.

#4 6 years ago

Must second LTG . Owned one for years. Plus it was the only one I could think of with out Jet bumpers.

#6 6 years ago

What about Champion Pub. Does it have Jet Bumpers ?

#7 6 years ago

Not my fave but NF is another good one.

no, champion pub does not have any pop/jet bumpers

this is the highest ranked game on pinside w/o pop bumpers.

#10 6 years ago

I totally forgot about Junk Yard. Great choice.

#11 6 years ago

Shadow and NF....love them both!

I just played No Fear for the first time tonight. If you love ramps, that's gotta be your game.

Swords of Fury hands down for pre-90s machines

Beat me to it!

#16 6 years ago

Easy.

Shaaaaadow.

#17 6 years ago

If this was a poll, I think The Shadow would run away with it, one of the best with or without a pop!!

And without slingshots, InterFlip "Dragon"

Not likely to win the title, but Jungle Lord.
(Yeah, I know. But I think it's an underrated game.)

#22 6 years ago

Grand Lizard. I just sold mine recently, but for the years it was here, I loved that game.

#23 6 years ago

Lightning

#24 6 years ago

JunkYard

That would be Jungle Lord.

#29 6 years ago

Sorry, never mind

#30 6 years ago

What? Jungle Lord... I don't think so.

#31 6 years ago

FIRE! for an earlier game and No Fear for the later.

#32 6 years ago

Has to be Shadow...

#33 6 years ago

I agree...Lightning!

I've never played Fire. But it looks really fun in videos. It doesn't have a very high rank. What's the deal? Is it a dud in gameplay?

It's fun for awhile but the symmetric layout doesn't leave much for interesting shots imo.

Added the poll with some of the most popular answers. Still would love to hear more.

Stern Iron Maiden

I prefer Solar Fire somewhat more but I can't say I'm a big fan of either. Both games are quite punishing and don't offer much satisfaction for me. SoF has much more flow which is more to my liking.

#40 6 years ago

It's a close call between Shadow and Swords of Fury imo... Since I gotta pick one I'll choose Shadow.

Part of what makes this hobby great. We all like something a little different.

Grand Lizard. Fire as well.~SpOoKy

But I think we're obligated to take those differences personally as insults and fight about it... no?

#44 6 years ago

Hate games with no pop bumpers with that said I actually own a champion pub Awsome game !!!! But could be so much better if it had pops just don't seem like pinball without them : (

#45 6 years ago

Judge dredd ...

#46 6 years ago

Fire and champ pub are fun as hell no pops or not

#48 6 years ago

#49 6 years ago
