Quoted from Rondogg:
Back at TPF 2018, Bowen said that he was working on 60-90 second video tutorials. Something you could watch quickly before/during a match. That would have been sooooo perfect. It was the same day Spooky hired him. I guess he got sidetracked
I think it depends on the game how long a tutorial should be.
And you could have different kinds... Basically like one just tells you the main things to focus on and to avoid and the other more in depth.
But, take a game like Party Zone(which I have never played in person, but been playing a lot digitally). There really only a few shots to focus on that game.
The left ramp and the lock shot for mb. Well, its not a lock per say, but you have to shoot it 3 times to start mb.
Once you start mb there are 3 shots you need to focus on. Two of the shots build up and light the big bang.
The left ramp collects it.
Then you just rinse and repeat. You will have to shoot the captain middle saucer shot to light multiball again. There are standups around that shot that you need to hit to light it. But, you'll probably just hit them during bricks to the left ramp.
But, the smarter way to go I think is to just left ramp to right scoop(the robot comic shot). Collect the mystery award which can be a surprise mb. And just go that route. Because even aiming for the Ha ha targets is far safer than aiming for the captain targets. So you'll cycle through more surprise MB that way.
And there you go... That's mostly everything you need to know about party zone. The 1 million and 5 million lower right shot. Isn't worth really going for on purpose. Its dangerous. Go for it on purpose if 5 million is lit and you have 2x playfield scoring activated. That gets activated when you exit mb and lasts the duration of you ball or until you enter mb again.
The eat drink and be merry isn't really worth going for. But, if you do unlock eat. You might you will collect it next time you hit the left ramp. And then you might as well collect drink for 2m. Which is the comic shot. And then if you want to risk the 3 million b merry shot which is the captains you can. Hopefully you'll need that to restart mb, so you'll have more than one reason to go for it.
But, really... Even a simple game like party zone... I think to describe what I just wrote. It be more than 90 seconds.
And I just want to say. Bowen's tutorials are the best. But, sometimes I wish he would play more than just a single game. Cos sometimes he just gets bad luck and bad bounces. And he really does make it seem not just easy to play. But, also easy to talk and play at the same time. And when I explain the rules to games when I am playing with my friends. Generally I have really bad games. And so I have to shut up and focus and then I put in good games.
