We're back!

After a disaster in our datacenter took down our server, we are now running Pinside on a brand new server. However, things may not work as expected as we are still polishing the playfield and adjusting some switches! We might be switching to maintenance mode a few times. Please see this forum topic for more info.

Quoted from BallyCrazy:

Hi,
I own 3 mutli-ball EM : Fireball, Wiggler (German version) and 4 Million BC.
Considering playing the game : My nb 1 is 4 Million BC / nb 2 : Wiggler / nb 3 : Fireball.
If I'm considering art, Fireball is my number 1, way ahead the 2 others...

I have now 6 mutli-ball EM games. Nip-It, Mad World and Star Jet arrived home since my message a year ago.

Considering playing the game : My nb 1 is Star-Jet / nb 2 : 4 Million BC / nb 3 : Wiggler.
If I'm considering artwork, my number 1 is now Star-Jet.

I had a "Mad World", but sold it last Spring. There's some debate as to whether it's a true multi-ball game or not, since the extra ball is not released onto the playfield. It can be immediately shot into play, but it's really just a free ball.

IT just requires a manual plunge assist onto the PF.

The first multiball game Balls a Poppin,
balls are released from under the playfield or wherever they are stashed;
unlike other early EM multi-ball games that have balls locked or captured then released onto the PF
without need of a plunger.
Some Modern games release multiballs (onto the PF) via an auto plunger.
