Pretty Much sums is at all up.
Joe Joos name is on the playfield under the apron.
Hard to say what this game would have done if produced, but pinball was in a big downswing so I suspect it wouldn't probably wouldn't have done much better, but hard to know, as noted Orbitor 1 was a "hit" but they ran out of money.
As far as the "clone" quicksilver/lazerlord, it would be curious to know who did the art for the PF/Plastics. Obviously done later and not compatible with this whitewood, but someone *did* do an art package for that version.
We also know Stern tried "Cue" at this point as well but I guess it didn't test well and was never built beyond a few. I know at least one of those exists as well somewhere.
Interesting time for sure!
As noted, this game is basically finished and totally playable, just no PF artwork.
What would really be cool is to get the two LazerLords together at some point.
