Quoted from o-din:

My favorite drop target game only has one and it was one of the first. It is a death shot.

Countdown, El Dorado, Seawitch, Pinball Pool, Eight Ball Deluxe, Meteor... pretty much any early Stern Electronics or Gottlieb Sys 1, imo, will give you a good drop target game.

If you like drop targets you're likely looking at a good portion of late EMs and early SS where drop target banks are a primary feature.... 2001, Nine Ball, El Dorado, Sinbad/Eye of the Tiger all jump out at me.

If drop target banks are boring, look at games which use them in other interesting ways. Inline drops for bonuses Flash Gordon and Centaur, or for ball locks in Fathom. Ramp blockers in Space Shuttle, TX Sector, and GoT. Last but not least, mid playfield drops like Cactus Canyon and Defender.

Most of the late 70's and early 80's Bally's get my nod for drops.

Also some of the early SS Stern's. Big Game and Seawitch come to mind for me.

Big Game is especially fast for a wide body and challenging to complete the bingo cards for big bonus... One of the most underrated pins of this era.

I think the JUDGE drops in JD are pretty addictive as you have to hit them in order to get to multiball.

I always liked this idea, which is why I'd love to see a break-out type Wizard Blocks game made that is based around it.

Cue Ball Wizard. The drops aren't really the main feature (right ramp) but I can't help but want to knock all of them down. And it's fun to hit the bank shot off of them.

I like the drops on my Mata Hari

IJ does that as well. Cool way to knock them down and award you with a chance at multiball.

WPT!!!!!!! The King of Drop Targets by the king!

Honorable mention: Centaur!

I find myself not even shooting for the drops in WPT unless in multiball. EBD I think is the better game if judged solely on the use of drop targets.

Quoted from Redketchup:

Catacomb! 12 target and you should hit them to fill the bonus card. On top of that you need to synchronise your shot to light the right one.

+1 for the Toast. Other good one's. Stargazer (9), Seawitch (11), Mystic (9), Skateball (11), Dragon Fist (9 Perfectly placed). Just so many from the 80's. Even Barracora.

I like the drops on Laser Cue.

BK, BK2K, EBD, Genie, Circus, Paragon

"Excalibur" has a total of 16 drops! I have one, it definitely gives that 'one more game' feeling.

Here's a good video of one in action:

Was addicted to Joker Poker for a while back then, and Royal Flush too

Target Alpha & EBD

#74 3 years ago

Sharpshooter is a heck of a lot of fun and has a lot of drops.

#75 3 years ago

RAVEN! It has 4 "Sniper" drop targets that are a blast to hit when they pop up.

#76 3 years ago

I should have added Devil Riders (Zaccaria, 1984) to list.
Competitive to start the "Big Wheel".
Best pinball machine Italians ever made.

#77 3 years ago

Eldorado is the best version of Target Alpha, Solar City, Lucky Strike, Canada Dry, Gold Strike

#78 3 years ago

I agree with the hot shots.

#80 3 years ago

I believe, not yet mentioned as a great drop target machine, Stern Nine Ball - all drop target game.

#81 3 years ago

Mustang LE/Boss Premium. The Shift "GEARS" drop targets are very important, & exciting with great sound effects! Also, after you complete modes, the "Caution Sign" drop targets are a blast! They pop up & down, they are timed with a growing value with each hit, really clever.
