Quoted from Whysnow:

well, obviously...
yes, it is.
You can hit a unique 10 way flow shot to every major shot in the game. The ball only stops 2x in the left gouch and the scoop to do this combo (follow the rainbow and then various other colors.)
The return to flipper shots, combined with intentional on the fly play style, and need to bounce pass for the next shot is astounding.
By far the best flowing game ever built IMHO.
Granted you need to actually play the game and learn the shots to get a feel for it. It is a wide body but plays like a standard with the flow of the shots.

Alternative flow.

Quoted from DeadFlip:

I'll have a date to announce, and try to drum up a Han Solo costume last minute.

If the Solo costume falls through I have a phat jabba dancer outfit you can borrow...

Got to play the game this weekend and had a really positive first impression. Game shoots and sounds great! Those of you who are complaining about the open playfield do you also hate games like AFM?

Only worry is rules may be a bit too complex when it comes to choosing heroes, bonus rewards and managing multipliers. I just felt like I was spinning too many plates for such a fast and hectic game. Once I get more time with the code maybe I'll appreciate the complexity but choice paralysis had me launching the ball most times without caring about what I picked. I usually gravitated to a bonus that would help me start a mode. Speaking of modes, big fan of the mode stacking in this game.

Quoted from Rasavage:

I think he correctly described it as the rules making it focused on game management.

This is exactly what it felt like. Complexity does not always equal "fun". I guess I just prefer games where I'm making those strategic decisions with the ball not a menu.
