OK, Since it seems that a lot of folks - myself included - recently acquired this great game, AND considering imminent new code, I thought it would be fun to have a thread devoted to questions, gameplay, mods, high scores etc.
I just had my best game ever - $288M as an AB, factory/hard setting, 3 ball - and the roadblock killed me. Battled Optimus 3 times after hitting roadblock....think I was down to last shot or two twice. RATS! I know Autobot is harder, but I like the more upbeat feel of the game as an AB, so I play it more. My previous high was 155 and just short of the previous owners GC score (on EZ settings), so I was pretty psyched.
RULES: I think Lonnie is getting a very bad rop here (see what I did there?). The rules are very good. They need a little fixing, as the roadblock really does limit the player. But Im really digging the entire TFLE experience, and a major part of it s staying in the flow of the games objectives, which are intuitive with some nice twists that can really impact scoring. Plus, 2 different games in one pin? How cool is that? The EB sound and dots are my favorite of all time too. Really having a love affair with this pin right now. I don't think there's one modern Stern that TFLE doesn't compare favorably to.
