Ahh yes, the topper... a truey excellent piece of art!! This game has fine attention to detail... love the kickback too, essential to get it re-lit with the three targets in front of the whirlpool...
OK, here's something: You have two locked balls and the lock is ready for the third ball, 5x playfield is lit at the boulder garden and the whirlpool is ready (which you shoot on the upper playfield to collect the boulder garden feature... 5x playfield in this case). The ball's on your right flipper, your close to Wet Willies (i.e. jackpot values are high), you're on your 2nd ball and you've already found the key to the Gold Mine. What do you do?
1) Shoot to start multiball. (er, not really, you'll only get 1x, 2x (if you get the 2nd ball up Insanity falls) or 3x (3rd ball up) that big jackpot value... 5x playfield is sitting there remember!
2) Shoot the Spine Chiller (the other way to get the ball to the upper playfield without shooting the 'No Way Out' lock shot) and try and react quickly enough to get the ball with the upper flipper to the whirlpool. A good choice, but it's very tricky since the ball is going fast past that upper flipper and appears from behind the mountains... It can be done, but it's tricky.
3) Shoot the Lost Mine. This will start a 2 ball multiball, thus removing one of the locked balls. When you get down to one ball, you can then simply shoot No Way Out, and you won't start multiball. You'll get a ball in the plunger lane which you can land on the upper playfield and the the 5x playfield running easily and then start multiball with 5 of those lovely jackpots for each insanity falls shot you make within the 25s timer!
4) Release your finger from the flipper button and simply watch the ball drain. Your 3rd ball pops out and is't all on a plate... of course you're a ball down, but the points you get can make up for that...
So, what do you do...?
Oh, and don't forget the fun of Camera Craze, all started after some complete bas**rd sets fire to poor Bigfoots foot (and leg as the flames rush up his fur!), causing him to hop about madly and his head to spin round... you can then start Camera Craze with enough shots past Bigfoot... so that every Hazard shot you get for the rest of that ball takes a photograph of Bigfoot pulling some silly face... an excellent touch...
Oh, and the 'secret passage' is a nice feature too, especially if you a good way up the river and you manage to get it backwards from a flunked No Way Out shot so it rolls over the switch twice, thus advancing 2 difficult rafts with one shot!
Do you want more reasons to need this game??
