Quoted from mof:
What you want to hear: "great theme" -- which is true, it has *great* theme integration. The game puts a smile on my face every time.
What you may forget to consider, but it's true:
-- Name another pin that is 'safer' to play (in terms of layout). You can't. The only consistent danger on this pin is making a great center shot... (doh)
You don't need to know the rules to have fun playing AFM -- all shots are beneficial -- you can flail away without ever looking up at the upper playfield -- most shots return the ball safely to the flippers...
AFM is the *safest* fan layout of all time. There's nothing at all wrong with liking safe or easy. Just be honest about it, next time you are bashing a game for being "too easy"... remember your love of AFM... It is partially due to how relaxing it is to play an easy game.
Lol, come on over to my place and see how safe and easy it feels and how long your ball lasts when you flail away. All games can be setup easy, all games can also be setup hard. Mine probably has the shortest average ball time of any of my DMD games.
