Just curious which games throw the ball into the air? I love seeing them fly in the air.
Here is what I can think of:
Comet - cycle jump ramp (the first game to do ever so?)
Big Guns catapult (second game to do so?)
STTNG - Borg ship and canons
Dirty Harry cannon
CV - ringmaster flings ball onto playfield
JM - throws ball into the glove
