As long as it's not a Dialed In re-skin, I'm ready to consider this.

Quoted from romulusx:

Why in the hell would they do a reskin? Or a Depp version for that matter.

Because sh*t happens.

Quoted from fnosm:

Golden ticket as a reward would be good but in keeping with the story you really should have to get the golden ticket before going on the factory tour.
Ultimate award for completing the game should be the deed to the factory.

You should have to FIND the golden ticket going along with theme. Whether that’s collecting “money” buy Wonka bars or something. Maybe it’s Jackpots and the Golden Ticket is the Super. Something like that.

Just PLEASE no “waving at the camera” to unwrap a bar. PLEASE.

Quoted from delt31:

I don't even want to think about this have being Johnny Depp. No way Jack could make that terrible decision........ Right?

It’s not. It’s real Wonka. Not Charlie and the Chocolate Factory.

God I hope it's not this guy, he's shite...

That's not an impression to me. It definitely IS some weird dude dressing up, though.

Quoted from musketd:

Hoping pat steps up this time and offers some better toys then the ones that were in dialed in

I agree on DI. There's magnets. Yay? Just design the right flipper shot properly and it's a step in the right direction.

Talked to Jack today and played this at Pinfest today. WHAT A LINE for this game.

I have to say, I was impressed. Less on the playfield than DI and I mean that in a good way. I was going to buy another pin but now, I'm really considering this instead.

Quoted from jimwe5t:

Great, now JJP is charging us $500 more for less on the game. How can that be “in a good way”? That was part of the attraction of their first standard body table, lots of things to do on the play field.

I think the playfield’s as crowded as hell. There’s less on the playfield but it’s still full of shots. How about buy a standard or just don’t buy it?

Iron Maiden has nearly NOTHING in it toy-wise and is fun as hell. Game of the year.

Quoted from smalltownguy2:

I'm going to request that JJP make a code change for this, allowing the owners' to select whether or not the virtual ball lock carries over from game to game or not. It's selectable in the software for the LE and CE, there's no reason why they can't make it selectable in the SE software too.

Yes there is, though. They want you to buy the LE or CE to get it.

#1559 3 months ago
Quoted from smalltownguy2:

The route operators would/will disagree with you. Not having a virtual ball lock carry-over on the SE will pretty much mean you will NEVER see Wonkavator multi-ball on a SE from a casual player. That's going to turn some potential operator buyers off.

Counterpoint is a casual player doesn't know what the heck they're "missing" anyway. Not carrying over locks is the norm on what, 99% of modern machines?

#1562 3 months ago
Quoted from smalltownguy2:

I will be getting an SE. And I want the carry-over. So there

Well, there you go. Might as well ask.

#1570 3 months ago
Quoted from bigd1979:

In home use i don't believe the wonkavator mb will be that difficult to achieve.... i activated the lock 2 times but the shot is tough to make with the weaker flippers at shows.

It can’t be much different than TSPP couch locks. I have those set to carry over.

Quoted from smalltownguy2:

But you DO understand that the Wonkavator multiball is already coded for the SE, right? It's virtual. And the carryover is already user-selectable in the menus for the LE and CE. Why wouldn't they offer that same feature in the SE? Without it, you're pretty much never going to be able to hit it in casual play. Why bother coding it in if the majority of the public playing an SE on route never get to hit it?

No one is going skip to play the SE in public because the Wonkavator isn't there.
More people will upgrade to the LE to get the Wonkavator (and extras though).

Include it on the SE and they hurt their own LE sales.

Quoted from Aurich:

I'll be honest: I don't care for the sound package. It's too whizzy chirp chirp bleep bloop bright and dingy for me. I know this kind of thing is totally subjective, and it fits the theme, and it's just my personal taste, but I could never own this game after listening to it today, it would drive me nuts.

Spot on here. The sounds just bothered me so much in the stream. I want one, because I played it and it shot great, but not with these sounds. While the sounds may “fit” the theme, together they’re just not a good package. Can JJP ever add an enthusiastic “Jackpot!” callout in a game?

#1805 3 months ago
Quoted from jfh:

At least they are more enthusiastic than the ones from Dialed In!

It’s hard not to be!

Gobstopper still misspelled from when I pointed it out 2 months ago and was shouted down and told that it was already fixed and that spelling errors are not something to be discussed.[quoted image]

Wait until you play Kidd Multibal

Quoted from Skyemont:

I’m not sure how to take this?

I’m not sure either.

I don’t order but am excited to try Wonka again.

I STILL would be so much happier if JJP just added 3 zeros at the end of all scores.
