    When I was at INDISC, the Project Pinball organization had an AC/DC contest where you competed for top score, but any hits on the stand ups caused an instant tilt. It was brutally difficult but fun. This seems like a fun and easy to program mode. The "punishment" wouldn't have to be a tilt necessarily, but perhaps could just end an otherwise lucrative mode.

    What do you think?

    I'm down for abuse.

    I think that you are too late. In Roadshow there is a mode for frozen people and the mode ends when you hit one of the stand up targets. I am not sure if I have the mode name correct.

    Didn't know that about Roadshow...well maybe they could have a mode with huge Jackpots available on the ramps, but actually Tilt and lose a ball on the stand ups. Maybe make it a very high risk/reward mode. Could be fun strategically in tournament play. Sort of a swing-for-the-fences option.

    Get rid of the tilt part and have a mode where some shots end the mode or even end the mode + cut mode score in half and the ones that don't score big.

    Yeah, it's Minnesota, "Frozen People".

    The mode is to hit the standup targets to 'defrost' the frozen people. However, if you hit the Blast Zone, you fry all the remaining frozen people, ending the mode. The mode is timed, too.
