Which would be the better home game and which one would you choose between the two?

#2 6 years ago

Dr Who, cant stand the music in Jackbot.

#3 6 years ago

this isn't even close. Dr. Who by a light year (see what I just did there?)

Jack*Bot.

Hmmm... very similar-looking games that play very differently. I don't think you can go wrong with either, honestly - they're both great in different ways. Doctor Who is a bit more complex, as the time expander has an extra stage to it beyond the JackBot visor, and has an extra flipper. It's the more modern, complex game for sure. JackBot has such a classic layout, though, and brutally fun gameplay. I actually really dig the music on it.

Gun to my head, at this point, I would say Jack*Bot... but if I get tired of it down the road, Doctor Who would be on the list of games I would consider trading it for.

I personally like Jack*Bot. I love the gambling double or nothing

My Doctor Who is in the Market Place if you're interested in making an offer. Great game.

Love Jackbot but think Dr? gets this one.

I am a Pinbot fan so I'd have to say Jackbot...

#11 6 years ago

I've played both quite a few times. I vote Dr Who.

What? You don't like my opinion?

Damn tough call
They're dead even fun wise to me.

Jackpot is a better multiplayer Imo
Casino Run and Mega visor are great modes

Doctor Who - time expander is awesome
I love shooting W-H-O loops

Either way I'd be happy with either or

No, I like pinbot much better than Jackbot. And Dr Who better than both.

Why is this even a question?

If you pick wrong, you will be exterminated.

OP, consider adding a poll. Doctor Who will win it by a mile I think.

#23 6 years ago

I've owned Doctor Who....so I'm going with Jackbot. Jackbot's already on my hitlist and if someone in D/FW area has a hookup on a reasonably priced one, let me know.

Almost mentioned this, yeah, add a poll.

As mentioned DW is a great game but the lack of wizard mode(s) kinda brings it down for me.
Think acdc without encore and half as many songs.

#26 6 years ago

I think in a pole, Doctor Who would smoke Jackbot, and BSD would smoke both of those. I would disagree with the results, though... I think I like BSD least of those three.

#27 6 years ago

Dr. Who for me. Both fun machines, though.

#28 6 years ago

I would take Jackbot over DW.
