I will report... flipped it, LOVED the way it shot. The butter smooth ramps, shots are all makable, outlanes are brutal, right especially, but you can learn what NOT to shoot at, and when to NOT shoot it, and ball times will climb. For the money, the Wife is coming around on a PRO, now just to convince her an LE is going to hit the market eventually, BUT the Premuim, OK, fan of the show? Yes? Premuim is the bomb in person. You actually forget you are playing a black and white machine, the light show is so vivid and you are so busy shooting to even care if the art is in color, your mind fills it in while you play, and you get immersed in “the show”.
The mini lower playfield is diminutive, and the ball is smaller, and it doesnt feel like real “pinball” when playing it, so I didnt like it... wait for it... ...that so many people have not pulled their cranium from thier rectal cavity and realized this IS the best mini playfield they have flipped in years. If you HATE Stewie/Donkey mini plafield from FGy/Shrek I will not be able to convince you that you will like Grandpa’s Laboratory, but flip it before you judge it, folks, the “total” package of Munsters with the mini playfield blows the Pro out of the water, and not just a little bit, but leaves a gaping, steaming, boat shaped hole of nothing in the pond. Anyone making a decision on buying a Munsters based on a thumbs up or down by a FGy owner rating this machine, consider this my glowing review. I didn’t just like it, I LOVED it.
What I didn’t like about Munsters...
Double flipper buttons, but not the fact they are double, but the placement of them on the cabinet side. If you think they should be more liKe magna save button locations, raise your hand HOWEVER, Dwight said, to my face, he wanted to throw us off our game by placing them lower and so get out of your comfort zones people, Dwight don’t want you to feel comfortable while flipping both tables at once, and now you know WHO to thank for that idea. It is also almost impossible to manhandle the machine while flipping the lower buttons unless your are a Madagascar Aye-aye Lemur, so this is something done on purpose.
Dragula count down and launch is just too long, imo, and could be sped up some... it puts a pause in the flow that detracts a little. The mono targets are not as big an issue, they remove some “down in sequence” rule structure possibilities, but all in all, drops for Lily or Dragula would have been wasted $$$ on BOM unless they used the “down in order” risk/reward paradigm, which could add some rule depth, but that would just cloudy the waters on casual players and may be totally on purpose to keep the game moving without crushing new players with too many things to learn.
All in all, I like it. It was fun, and can only get more fun going forward. Is this a players “got to have it” title? It is probably not for everyone or forever, but for fans of the TV show and clean family fun, I think it is.
