    What pin has the most chaotic 5+ ball multiball?

    What pin has the most controlled 5+ multiball?

    Which is the most fun?

    #2 4 years ago

    I think stern Indiana Jones is pretty chaotic.

    Apollo 13 has a 13-ball multiball!

    Strange Science 5-ball is a pretty quick drainer

    #5 4 years ago

    Oh but what about Rapid Fire and Hyper Ball. I know it is not the usual multiball.

    South Park has a god 5 ball MultiBall. Depending on the settings, they keep coming firing out when drained for a set amount of time. But you have to enjoy the theme

    Bally Heavy Metal Meltdown has an awesome 5 ball chaotic multiball...they shoot out from the ramp lock all at once and it is a bit tough to keep them all in play or to cradle them...great and underrated game

    There's a controlled 5-ball multiball?

    #9 4 years ago

    Judge dredd 5 ball seems the most contolled to me probably because alot of the shots feed the flippers.

    TFTC electric chair rocks, it's fun to play. I don't care what others say, I enjoyed a good 5 or 6 ball multi.

    JP might win on both.

    Second-stage of the 5-ball multiball is called 'Chaos' (after you hit all the C-H-A-O-S shots in the first stage) with a pretty cool callout. It is named after the criteria so it has to qualify

    And the multiball is also necessarily very controlled because your jackpot is multiplied by the number of balls still in play.

    IJ4 gets my vote. There's just something unnerving about that ark when it dumps 8 balls out all at once and they head towards you.

    Well of Souls on Indiana Jones Pinball Adventure.

    #14 4 years ago

    Lost in Space...open and insane....

    Quoted from Jackontherocks:

    Lots of great features in that game and that's one of them.

    Tales from the Crypt has 6-ball.

    [edit]: Oops, just caught that it was already mentioned. I missed the abbreviation for it.

    #17 4 years ago

    JP has a fun 6-ball multi.

    #18 4 years ago

    1) Apollo 13 seems like the obvious answer.
    2) I don't think that really exists.

    #19 4 years ago

    Guns n Roses multiball can range anywhere from 2 - 6 balls, based on the number of band members added by the player, and is probably my favorite 5+ ball multiball.

    As for the other question, it seems impractical for anyone to control a 5 ball multiball, and I'd probably just shoot on the fly until I'm down to 3 or 4, and then start getting control at that point.

    Balls-a-poppin' is variable multi-ball, up to 9 balls. Gets pretty wild.

    I'd say The Shadow's Final Battle is pretty controlled (if you do it right). You have ball save for 30 seconds, so hit one ball into the Battlefield and ignore the other four balls. They're only there to distract you. They'll bounce around the playfield hitting stuff while you clear the Battlefield, so when ball save ends you should only have a few more shots to hit, which is much easier to do with two or three balls than with five.
