Quoted from yancy:
Hercules flipper mechs with normal bats.
You think so? Hercules is very sluggish to play.
There isn't any competition as far as I'm concerned; Data East Robocop has the most stupidly overpowered flippers of any machine ever, even to this day.
Full Throttle's were no slouch either, the game was designed for speeed but we kept it just the right side of the line.
