Hello! I am starting this forum because I have noticed how these tagged games from these companies get talked about a lot less than other companies, such as Zaccaria or Spinball. I am not sure why this is, but these games truly seem like interesting games that I would like to know about, but there is no information on them! It's not that they are prototype only games, but it seems like these games are impossible to find! The reason I am posting this forum is because I am wondering if anybody else has information on these games?

There are probably less than 100 spinball machines in north america which is where most users are. Lot of people do not even know what spinball is. Inder is even more obscure despite having been around longer because most people here will never see one.

Heck i have yet to see one of the old sega ems in person.

dung I understand that Spinball games are very hard to come by, but think about it. I have seen quite a few come up for sale. All of them being either Verne's World, or Jolly Park. And most were Jolly Park. And Zaccaria, well, they did pretty well, and I have played a couple. Plus, the Zaccaria Pinball app. I have to admit, that I have never played a Spinball Game. Also, how do the playfeilds stay in such good condition on these foreign games? Is it a special mylar or what?

I like the look of Taito games...really interesting games where most were basically rip-offs of American games, but remixed in interesting ways.

There's not too many of them floating around here in the US, unfortunately.

Two rare games I currently own are Mr.Game Mac Attack and Bell Games Cobra.

Ohhh yeahhhhh... I forgot about those Taito games. It is surprising they didn’t get sued. They once literally made Black Hole but with heir parts! This doesn’t make sense because there is literally a foreign version of Black Hole that Gottlieb made themself!

International lawsuits are incredibly difficult/expensive, and often not worthwhile unless you actually conduct business and have an office in that locale.
