I dunno! But 74 is in New Zealand!
I set it up at 7 degrees for a wild ride. The game was totally out of control for the first few games, but after say 20-30 it has calmed down a little so we can get some good gameplay going.
I explained it to a couple of my buddies as "like Stars on steroids!" Imagine Crazy Levi holding a 1 ball tournament on a RZ!
So far I had worked out most of the modes just as the video above describes. Ive worked out the best way for me to make my balls last longer (cough cough..)
So far I've got to two games in the 40m mark and I think both were 5-6 modes completed. The modes are cool and innovative if you can use your skills to keep the ball in play long enough. Compare the modes to the ones in Ghostbusters for example, there's just no comparison.
Quality is A1. I've heard some guy who has a podcast say the quality isn't there. Well, again he is just showing his ignorance. Lots of quality Pinball Life parts like BW Lock bars and rails, the build quality is as good as anything I have seen. I particularly like how the cabinet decals are applied to the cabinet, I presume they must be applied to the timber before assembly? They wrap around the corners of the cabinet sweetly. Plywood cabinet bottom too!
I can totally understand that this style of gameplay isn't for everyone. This game is more like Black Hole on steroids rather than Game of Thrones. If you've never experienced the ass kicking that a 70s/80s SS machine can give you, you might get a little frustrated/humiliated when you can't get anywhere. But hone your skills and you will get to experience all the modes, and I guarantee you'll have a fun time.
