    Elwin and crew has simply mashed it out of the park

    Pure genius on code allowing us to work back on the Escape from Nebular mode

    How do you improve on that Elwin?

    You set the bar so F ing high I’m wondering if it’s possible to top it? Lol

    It’s a good pin but didn’t click with our home so we sold it. I wouldn’t call it a GOAT. The right flipper is so crucial to hit shots for progressing, but you have no way to reliably feed the right flipper other than a tight edge of the flipper shot from left flipper to heli wireform. Also wanted more Jurassic park elements in the theme.

    I realize you bailed early Honda. Your mistake

    And your loss but hey, to each his own

    The masses have spoken

    Not a mistake or loss by any means. You presume to know what is best for my family?

    I don’t really care Honda.

    And yes you lose by selling JP especially based on the lineup. Patience

    I like maiden a lot more though.

    #12 4 months ago

    Really like JP, but folks start sharpening their machetes when you throw out GOAT around here.

    Will say this title solidified Elwin as my favorite new designer- period.

    I concur with the Crazy guy ...

    Maidens Shadow and Dredd loops kill it! Loop those mothers!

    JP is a sweet game though! The O orbit is a bit tight ... and the flipper post takes a beating!

    and than again : from experience, how good/bad is the idea to simply remove the post and let the flipper edge taking all shocks !?

    JP in name only. Pay up and include the movie quotes/callouts/scenes/actors and the iconic movie vehicles.

    #16 4 months ago

    The best game ever! Now I hope Elwin do Jaws.

    #17 4 months ago

    KME's JJP will win 2020 Twipy for Game of the year.

    Well deserved from what I have read.

    I will be enjoying some of this during the Twips at 7am down under.

    Thinking about The Goat, You beaut mate !

    I've heard alot of good things on this one from Pinsiders I respect....gotta find one to play and give it a whirl.....

    #19 4 months ago

    LOL , how can it be the GOAT , when we all know JJP Pirates took that title..
    Just kidding, tho , I could vote Pirates that way. It is actually cool how some of the new pins are raising the bar for pin game play. I am watching how Elvira evolves and I must say I am impressed so far. Each .01 of code release is providing a significant amount of “goodness”. I am glad you like JP, somewhere down the road , I will get one.

    #20 4 months ago

    I think it's a great game , Keith's best , but it's not the Goat . In my opinion I like Elvira a lot more but that's fine , everyone's allowed their own opinion . It's like asking what movie is the best ever , everyone will have a different opinion depending on what they like . Ice Man just be happy someone made a pin you love and stop trying to shove it down everyone's throat to agree with you .

    I played one at the Pinball Hall of fame. Didn't click for me. I prefer my DE JP

    I see Icey has been drinking again.

    Wasn’t Munsters the GOAT a few months ago for him?

    Whatever is newest it seems.

    #24 4 months ago

    I love reading icemans posts. Hes like a WWE wrestler that comes in after the match is over just to hit everyone with the chair, lol. Not even being sarcastic, I enjoy it.

    Im in Louisville currently for the expo and will be taking home a Jurassic Park at the end of the show, its epic! That said pinball is obviously very much personal preference, and my Metallica will always be #1 in my heart, as it is what got me into pinball (I got in very late to the pinball scene), and is the only game I can definitively say is bolted to the floor in my humble little 2 pin collection.

    Elvira is almost better, and will be once Lyman finishes the code. JP is nowhere near GOAT status. A fine game, but not the best by any stretch. Heck, I prefer ACNC over it too (flame suit on).

    I dont think a flame suit is needed. Literally anything can be someones personal GOAT game, except for Thunderbirds, that game is the corona virus.

    It's a great game, but not the GOAT.

    I've Played Rick and Morty extensively. While it’s fun...It’s not the GOAT and can’t hold JP’s jockstrap. Let’s not talk crazy.

    #35 4 months ago

    Goat, or it includes a goat ?

    Had it for few months , l but no more goat for me

    #36 4 months ago

    Nah.

    Call outs are nowhere near GOAT status.

    Sounds like you have been watching too many episodes of Ball Fondlers! I owned JP and had to sell it to raise cash. JP is a great shooting generic dinosaur pin IMHO. Theme & theme integration is very important to me (I have to love it) so R&M was an insta buy for me as I absolutely love the show and the game.

    People like different things and that’s a good thing...

    You have to keep in mind that JP2 is currently at completed 1.0 software and R&M is at beta code stage essentially. I think R&M certainly has the potential to be the best ever but we will have to wait and see. JP2 is the smoother shooter and has better rules currently but R&M has the better theme integration, sound and light show. I think when all is said and done both games will be too 5 of the past decade.

    #39 4 months ago

    VERY cool game, very innovative for sure! Especially the code where you can choose your path, getting chased by the T-rex, etc. IMO it's too early to call it the GOAT but it's definitely a contender

    huh?

    #42 4 months ago

    Jurassic Park is a fantastic game. I have really enjoyed it (particularly the Premium/LE models) and I think it is one of the best shooting, most interesting, and magical pins. I have always wanted a Theatre of Magic as that is my favorite game but if I had to pick one or the other, I would go with JP.

    I think people get too hung up on the movie IP. This is a game that is set in the world of Jurassic Park. People have to get over this.

    To each their own.

    Oh hell no Levi. Maiden came and went

    JP layout much better

    But two great pins to start with for Elwin

    #44 4 months ago

    And Elvira is getting right up there too!

    Gotta agree with The Nayman here. I enjoy both games, but definitely prefer IMDN at this point.

    And "all time Greatest of All Time"?!

    C'mon iceman ...

    #46 4 months ago

    JP is the best game ever IMHO. I have also wondered if it's "possible to top it". I sure hope so!

    #47 4 months ago

    Not even close. I don't even want to play the thing again let alone look at it.

    Well, you asked.

    But, it is a relatively modern theme for this company.

    #48 4 months ago

    I own an original AFM--considered one of the top 3--and IJ is my favorite pin of all time. But I also have a JPLE, and while it may not be widely considered the GOAT today, I think it will certainly be considered a contender for that title for years to come. It's really the complete game (and you don't even notice the hokey callouts after a while...).

    Now...the greatest game with a GOAT in it? Yep...it wins, hands down.

    #49 4 months ago

    What's with all these antagonistic threads from Iceman lately?
