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?

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?

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!

I know it has been a very long time since I last updated this forum. Sorry about. I have watched some documentaries and discovered that Taito was paid by other companies to make foreign versions of their machines in a black market esc way. It is also apparent they had a side company: Columbia LTD. Not much is known about LTD, just that they exist and they made a version of Bally Mr and Mrs Pac Man, a version of Flight 2000, a version of Mata Hari, and a bunch of other games with no photos making it impossible to know if they even exist, such as a 1978 King Kong machine. That is all I have to add. Otherwise this forum is unofficially dead in a way. I may update, I may not.
