My contention is simple, the code isn't awful, way too much has been made of flipper gap, and it's the most innovative thing Stern has done in years. However, It remains flawed to several degrees.
The problem remains there are so many flaws in the code structure and code flow of the game that moderate fixes should have been done., And frankly easily could have been done, they were not. They were transitioning to video and eggs went in all the other baskets. Game sold so we'll it didn't matter the bottom line. When the designer caught a case, Stern let it go. Owners and players payed the price.
I have not done business with Stern since I bought GB, and I told them that. Once they make me whole we can go down that road, I love what they make. I went the other way, bought a NIB Avatar LE.. it's a fricken tank compared to 2019 games... Here's to hoping they fix this great game, I still play and enjoy mine anyhow!!
