So it's my understanding that E.G.S. Produced a video game pinball combo machine, but internet info seems to be very scarce for this machine. Does anyone know more about E.G.S.? Has anyone actually played this game? I'm posting a picture of my playfield I couldn't find any other pics of one online. So here it is in case anyone else wondered what they look like!

Looks like a retheme of a Flash Gordon.

Some googling brought me here:

New York Defense/Defence (1981, E.G.S./Telemach 3)

This one was shown at the Forainexpo show at Le Bourget in Paris in December, 1981. It was made by the Italian company E.G.S. and Telemach 3 (a company about which I know next to nothing, other than that they had a booth at the show). It made its debut earlier at the Emada show in Rome. I have seen almost nothing on this game anywhere. The Internet Pinball Database lists it as New York and gives only the name, company, and year of release. The other databases (pinside, arcade museum, arcade history) seem to take their info from IPD. I'm not even sure it IS a video/pin combo.
All of the information comes from the January, 1982 issue of Replay, from which the following photo was taken (please excuse the very poor quality - I scanned it in black and white several years ago because, at the time, I was only interested in the text. I threw the actual issue away since I didn't have the space for it).

It looks like the info floating around about this game is pretty thin.

You should upload that photo to IPDB.

Yeah there's almost nothing online, that google link was pretty much all I found. I'll take some more pics for ipdb. Id love to see some game play or what should be on the video screen.
