All the games I am familiar with from the 60s, single and multiplayer, had drop targets that could reset before the ball was over so you could knock them down again. But it seems as the 70s arrived and more and more games used drop targets, the curse of many multiplayers was they would not reset until the ball was over making them very one dimensional and once you had knocked them all down there was not much else to do.
Bally was late to the game with drop targets, however the first one they made which I have-Air Aces in 1975 has a bank of nine drop targets that will reset when you knock them all down and makes for great gameplay. I also have Williams Grand Prix and although they are banks of one, they will also reset after you knock them down in pairs. I have also had a couple of games where they did not reset and they went down the road.
I think Bally kept going with the re-setable bank, but I was wondering if there are other multiplayer games that have this feature. A friend of mine tells me he has a Surf Champ he could bring me, but I haven't played one or researched it enough to know if they do indeed reset.
