Quoted from whitey:
Best game ever ??? definitely not best game built ! JJP has that department taken along with CGC
Make no mistake
He said "best game Stern has ever made", not "best game ever."
Most of us are already a bit tired of JJP enthusiasts trying to spoil Steve Ritchie fans' party.
Give the JJP comparison bombing a break. At least for a day or two.
Quoted from cletus:
Has anyone really done a good shot for shot and mode breakdown comparing this to some of the JJP titles? It’d be nice to hear about quality differences as well.
We're not interested!
This is a Steve Ritchie fans' thread.
People wanting to bomb this thread with boring JJP comparisons are not welcome.
We don't want you to spoil our party.
Go and post your JJP propaganda somewhere else.
Leave. Leave now.
Quoted from CUJO:
I don't even like the fact that they put two set of flipper buttons on Munsters Premium. I didn't even realize at first I had to use the other flipper buttons once the lower playfield started. Can't they just figure that out in code, like Family Guy, when it goes to the mini playfield?
That's one of the best features of Munsters. When you get multiball on the upper and lower playfields, simultaneously, you are supposed to play each ball on its own merits as it comes towards one of four flippers. It's hard to get your head around this (playing four not two flippers, on four not two buttons) but it can be done with enough practice.
So there is nothing to "figure out" in the code. The code is brilliant and well integrated. A few things could be improved but it's only at 0.99!
I don't know of any other pinball machine that gives the player that kind of challenge and the opportunity to increase their skill levels by training their brain to be playing four separately controlled flippers. It's a little like playing the drums, and eventually reaching a stage where you have four limbs playing a different beat to each other, yet in sync with the music. Not easy to do. But it can be done!
Quoted from CUJO:
Thanks to take the time to explain this. I had no idea that you could have upper and below playfield multiballs going on at the same time.
You are right. If one can master four buttons without just flailing on them that will be quite the achievement.
(I am finally getting the hang of playing Inverted Straight Jacket mode in Houdini). Great Mode...
I played a Munsters Premium today at Little Shop Of Games (Great Place) and didn't even break a million on one of my games.
So it will be neat to see it happen as the code develops on this pin...
Yes, Munsters can be long playing, but often gives you short, sub million point games. Keep practicing! That's the fun of this hobby.
