Quoted from DaveH:
I always go "Bah" when people call it a one trick pony. Stacking all 3 and cashing them in is one of the best feelings in pinball! Killing Drac at the coffin while collecting castle jackpots is amazing. So hard to do it all. Best game ever.
And it's *not* just a one-trick pony, although the side show is kind of linked to the main stage, if you will.
Bats and Rats really do have a major role to play in high scoring games if you play it right, but, of course, playing them right means that you're playing them *during* multiball that's stacked three high. Scoring gets...a bit buggy with them, let's just say.
But I love the rush of getting all three going. It's a terrific *battle* machine, and that left ramp shot is just so satisfying to nail, loop, and yes (for the courageous): even backhand. Few things feel better than backhanding that monster.
