Played approximately 18 games on the Pro at Pinball Gallery in Malvern, PA. my thoughts:
The art: cabinet , backglass and playfield are awesome, and incredibly colorful in person, and I even love the lcd animations. Lots to watch and see.
The flow: one of the fastest games I ever played. Hitting the right ramp or right orbit whips around to the upper left flipper. Upper flipper also has a repeatable orbit, Or a center ramps that feeds down to the right inlane. I was missing a lot, flipping too late, forgetting to flip or throwing it down an outline. And I love every minute of it.
Even tho it’s a Borg game, it doesn’t feel like any Borg games I’ve spent much time playing. The shots feel tight but makeable (not houdini, actually makeable). Lower left flipper sometime feels like Jail, but then you dial in the right ramp or the right orbit and you are back in business.
Scoring: This is not a high scoring machine. I think you need 10 mil to get a high score by default ... and I did not do that. I was so excited to play it, i didn't even take a picture of a score.
Overall: Great to get to pick your own turtle, which adds a variety of skill shots available. Man this game is going to take awhile to learn the shots, but it feels great and every shot I hit felt great.
Finally, the combos, weapon hurry ups, and LAIR stuff could be a game in an of itself. So much to do!
