Quoted from robertmee:
The house per the video has a motorized diverter, so the ball can come out to the left or right I believe. The entry to the house feeds either the diverter or if the stairs are up, the subway. So, three possible directions I believe. The top turning is akin to MM towers moving...awarded on completuon of some mode I suspect. The house also appears to have numerous lighting modes with individual LEDs in the windows...something MMs castle didnt have.
So I'd say the house is at least on par with the castle, and a pretty good main toy.
Engineeringwise yes. And the Mansion looks cool with the lighting...
But the Castle seems do much more intuitive and satisfieing -> from what I see "now".
"Oh theres a Castle, let's shoot it! I get the drawbridge down, hit the gate and then the castle "explodes"! - Yeah, did it!"
"Oh theres a mansion, let's go in. I shoot it... and the ball Returns left,... right,... center... Oh and there's a small thingy that spins indicating something."
Don'r get me wrong, I definately want to play this and it looks awesome, the mansion toy just doesn't open up to me yet.
