Played the game a few times yesterday and today. Good fun. Playfield was a lot more open than I'm used to with Borg games - Centre ramp is a long way back as is the bash toy (joker). Lock shot was a bit awkward and clunky, but the lock-crate kick thingo was cool, as was the multiball start with the balls spewing out.
Code seems pretty complete - got 2 separate multiballs going (the toy box one and and one that starts at the elevator). All the songs are different modes.
Game is not super hard or aggressive like allot of Borg games, but I guess having an open PF helps.
A couple of cool things I noticed that I'm not sure have been mentioned:
- if you're playing a multiplayer game, it looks like you can steal locks from other players.
- there is a VIP pass in the right outlane, which when lit will give you your ball back as if you had ball save still running.
- there's a way you can shoot the ball into the "lock"/ ball launch thing, and if it's not lit for lock, an animation starts where the joker sais something about hitting him on the head. The ball then shoots and instead of opening the crate, he gets hit in the head and sais ouch or something. That's pretty cool.
- seemed to be some stacking of songs possible, but could be wrong. There were times when multiple songs were flashing but wasn't sure how to take advantage of it.
As good as the pro is, I'm curious to play the Premium/LE. No way the $ are justified between the 2, but the upper pf might add a bit of variety, and the upper pf outer ramp/loop thing might be cool. But the pro is definitely a good "value" proposition especially with colour LCD.
