    IM, Tron....they hate me (but keep pushing the button). Both can be brutally fast and very short.

    Technically not a pin, but fits the description of fast/shooting fun game.

    Maiden is great for quick games. Once you hear that dog shit music you’ll “RUN FOR THE HILLS!!”

    Quoted from Adaminski:

    We have LOTR, Wonka, Stern SWLE, and Beatles. So, 2 longer playing games, and 2 shorter playing games. SWLE is a fast shooting game, and can be over quickly, but once you get good, a 3-ball game with some extra balls can get quite long (10-15 minutes?) if you advance a lot of the modes and quests.
    I'd vote for Beatles as a "a good fast shooting, fun short game." With its single level, it looks like the old SS that it's based upon (I've played Seawitch), but the geometry is tweaked just a little bit. Between trying to string together multiple clockwise loops, the strong pop bumpers, and the magnetic spinning record disk, the ball can really zoom around.
    I put some data together for a post in the Beatles club...
    The average complete game time on our Beatles pinball for 3 ball games is 4 minutes, 17 seconds
    We use default settings: 3 ball games, a max of 3 extra balls per game, and new modes start by knocking down FAB-FOUR and hitting a loop. We do have outlanes set easy (closed down as much as posts allow), and the data below only includes complete games, not restarts, so reduce our average a bit for true "default" settings.
    Most games have been played by me, probably ~70%. I'm good, but not great. I can get to Hard Day's night multiball once every ~5-8 games (hard to quantify). I've been able to get to Taxman multiball ~5 times.[quoted image][quoted image]

    Target Alpha. Or any of its subsidiaries.

    Quoted from TheLaw:

    I think people are forgetting the "short" aspect of it.
    There's nothing aboot Shadow, I500, Maiden, DH etc etc that are short.

    True. I am looking for games primarily that are not a tremendous time investment yet are still fun. I have the “journey” games (TH, POTC, TZ) but also like the short satisfying games to balance it out

    Tron!!!!!!! Selfless plug buy mine sword of rage is quick until you learn how to play it, if you backhand most shots there is much less risk and the games can last long.
