It is a clone of Funhouse. They made a few changes after the prototype which made the game a hell of a lot harder. Right orbit is too tight and requires a perfect shot to get around the loop. It does have good modes, an excellent skilshot, very nice dots on the dmd, the blinders are ingenuious. The only thing that sucks is the video mode. All in all it is a very hard game with a good theme and that is why people like it.
I completely agree with all of this. That right orbit shot is really tight. I can definitely hit it, but it sure as hell isn't an orbit shot that you are going to keep looping the ball around! The left orbit, on the other hand, I can get going pretty good.
I'm happy to say that I was able to get to Pinball Wizard mode once!
Love the EM type sounds, tons of modes, and the music is very well integrated into the game play. Despite the fact that it is a very challenging pin, my wife loves it and is none to happy that I am giving it up in favor of "that gofer one"! lol
