My broken record is I want whatever theme it fits best, a "Khet" based objective.
Say 4 Stepper motors, 4 to 6 positions, that have a mirror on them.
One needs to get 4 mirrors aligned, and the laser lit, for it to successfully bounce its way across the playfield.

Of course, the wrong hit, and the mirror moves out of position.
Features like Lock Mirror, or Align one mirror as a reward.

IMO, it would add strategy, and a neat "toy" not done before. Very affordable.

Would look cool lighting through Green Laser in a Matrix Game.

Another idea, and maybe Ive missed this in a game, is random hole shoot outs.

3 VUKs, Right left and center.

Shots that enter the subway system from Holes, and play elsewhere on the playfield, including the
scoop itself, randomly eject from the same or another scoop!

It would keep you on your toes, and allow settings for either control or randomness!

There are so many great themes out there, Id love to here of some of the deep dark toy or game play
features we would like.
Someone must have said at a meeting, Lets have our game be bluetooth integrated, right?

I truly wish Stern or another, would create a contest, and seriously let ideas and posts fly, in exchange
for license of use, perhaps a Free Game or more...

I gotta believe as a community, we could come up with a game play that just kicks all ass!

I Popped back in and saw Jadys post about the 5th Element!

Multi-Pass, Multi Ball!

Seriously, would anyone want to see a game with a huge amount of personalization
available? Pinball browser extreme? Code or menu driven?

I was thinking about a new twist to a VUK.
The metal exit flap is not visible, and the mech can rotate the exit flap into any direction.
So a Ball to Vuk can exit to right of left flipper, horizontal in either direction, or any angle behind, based on design. Basically a planned, by variable VUK.....
Add 2 to a game, and especially during multiball, good luck.

Randomness, to me, is exciting....
