    Quoted from RipleYYY:

    well, before getting it, i had only played it few (in meetings), that means i was absolutly not in the code, just playing as it...
    to be honest it was not in my wishlist (to swap vs my Houdini), than someone propose it, i checked infos & videos on internet, and finally think it could be a positive experience because game seems like to be nice, fast, with actually a complete code (already noticed about the PF multiplicator)
    once home, firsts games were a complete braindead because of all inserts flashing in all colors (lol), its impossible to follow what is going on
    but OK, it quickly becomes "easy", to understand, and to play (blue+green+purple+orange for modes, yellow for hyperspace, red for t-fighter/jackpot, cean for combo & white for boba fett)
    at first, you think the code is deep, but finally its not, its just perfect for what it is : the theme, in a fast playing pin/SR design, with lot of hurry-up
    you have to play quickly, but also think quickly, and than when you add that multiplicator factor in the game, it becomes even more fun & addictive
    i can understand the bad reports at the begning, even more about the missing toys... but SW is easy to mod if you like that
    i also feel the artwork being poor (the comic edition is way better to me), but than its a very nice pin, may be not top of the list, but its good for sure
    may be that multiplicator factor is too much a game changer (as the snikt target on DP, or GOT which is also coded by Dwight)
    if you didnt know about it, you can even have a long ball of 5 or 10 minutes (but than score nothing special), and than be beaten by a guy mastering that (keeping that X20 or even better X40 alive), making only few shoots (as hyperspace hurry up or video mode) and blowing a hiscore way too easily
    all in all, i will not keep the SW for long (quickly become "easy" for me), but its a positive experience without a doubt

    I generally do not like Dwight Sullivan games, and I definitely don't like multipliers that can change scoring in a game so drastically, with little effort.

    Lord of the Rings I have made it to and destroyed the ring a bunch of times... but tonight I was pumped to finally see TABA for the first time! I know, I know, it's not the promised land, but you have to enjoy the new milestones along the way.

    Not a bad game otherwise (for me). 4 gifts, TTT done, and 7 across. Man, though, as soon as ROTK starts I forget how to hit shots..

    Congrats!

    I remember getting to TABA for the first time. It was actually at my friends place, as he had one, and he hadn't seen it yet, so we both were pretty hyped up.

    Valinor is next!

    Awesome, congrats man! I'm not a fan of Aerosmith's music but I've had a good time every time I've played that game.

    Not sure I would count it, but I get to Morty's Choice (Rick Potion #9) pretty regularly in Rick & Morty.

    Love the mode, but there's no satisfaction at all in finishing it. I wish that they could send some big moments in the game. If it wasn't a theme I look bed this much, the game would have been sold in the first month.

    It’s a fine way to start a Saturday (factory, 3 ball, replay)!

    Definitely was a thrill getting to this one.

    Did it 2 or 3 times, but then drained quickly on wizard mode. Wish they had a MB or something to make the mode more enjoyable.

    Congrats! Not an easy task

    That's the one mode I never saw. Getting to LMS was probably my best pinball moment.

    Such a good game!

    LMS is not an easy achievement either....115 walkers kills is very tough to get!

    Quoted from diamondfate9:

    Yeah, I honestly didn't think I'd reach it. I posted the game for sale because it wasn't really appropriate for my kids, and also wanted to bring in something new, and that week I reached LMS.

    I think I mentally scared myself into thinking I would never reach it. The crazy thing is, I did it on ball 1!!!

    I used my EB, but was still on ball 1.

    Definitely my best pinball moment, aside from maybe reaching Battle for the Kingdom on MM when it was my first and only pin.

    Right now, I'm playing R&M, but finding it more frustrating than fun. I looked at my audits, and average ball time is 15 seconds!

    How can that be fun??? I mean, I have game ls that are 10-15 minutes long occasionally, but usually in those he's there is 1 or 2 balls that almost instantly drain.

    I'm going to try lowering the flippers, but if that doesn't significantly improve the game, I'm probably going to just move it on.

    This post is about NOT reaching a wizard!

    I lit Final Battle in TMNT on my last ball, and only had the ramp to hot to start it.

    Missed twice and drained! Completely gutted!

    I'll get there again I'm sure, but dn that one hurt!

    After a few close (but no close enough) attempts, I got it done tonight.

    Reached Final Battle in TMNT, and I'm a bit disappointed. The game itself just lacked creativity (left ramp, right ramp, shots, shots, shots, repeat). The wizard mode was pretty uninspired too. Had no idea what the point of it was aside from hitting numerous shots.

    Oh well, onto the next challenge... TNA

    after covid reopening, i've visited again that bowlling alley including pins as GOTG, STh & BK SOR

    about the last one, gone to black castle again, and of course was fuck*d again !!! lol
    that's now more than few times reaching it, but than only 1 time beating it... its very hard, because of all these dangerous shoots/returns

    btw SW should leave next week, than we'll go for something else
    very good game indeed, but we've seen enough of it now, that's a problem when you have only 1 pin home

    After countless games and hours, I have finally gotten to Monsters of Rock. Not terribly hard in the grand scheme of things, but this one is special for me because it's the game that got me back into pinball a few years ago and introduced me to Pinside - Shout out to that crew @ Pinpoint Bar in downtown Fayetteville, AR.

    Sadly, shortly after this game another guy came up and absolutely dunked on my score. He had 995M+ and was still going when the game shut off accidentally, so it didn't register his high score. I had nothing to do with it, I swear!

    Now go work on that Valinor wizard

    Oddly enough, I just had one of my best games. Collected 4 gifts, had played 5 modes, and beat TT before the DMD said ball 2 (2 EBs - tower / gift). Got another gift and lit the 6th mode, yet I never even saw TABA...

    Pinball can be a cruel mistress...

    That's awesome, you'll get it soon!

    My cruelest pinball moment was completing everything needed to enter Valinor, finished all the shots in DTR, hit the ring once, and then the flippers just wouldn't give me the juice to get in the ring one last time.

    After I drained, I didn't play pinball for about a month haha.

    Got to Pure Imagination last night on Wonka SE, it took 509 days. But it was so worth it!

    #175 34 days ago

    I got away from the police last night on High Speed.

    Awesome stuff there!

    I sold my TNA last weekend without ever completing it.

    I hate letting go of a game before I beat it, but I had to make room.

    Made it to Celebration Multiball on Striker Xtreme tonight. You get this by beating all 15 other countries, fairly challenging but not super difficult, a lot of goals to score and a lot of drop targets targets to hit. It’s probably about as hard as getting to Super Lethal Weapon twice in one game on LW3, maybe a touch more difficult because of the dangerous drops. Missed whatever the starting animations and announcements there are for it as I was in Stadium Multiball when I scored the final goal. Next time my goal is to reach this while in single ball play to see what the difference is.
    2 weeks ago I was as close to Escape Nublar as I have ever been, played both Secure Control Room and Museum Mayhem and just had to spell MAP to get to Visitors Center when I drained going after my 6th DNA combo trying to get an extra ball.

    some auto-derision (because its also nice to laugh about ourself) while this is as hard as reaching a wizard mode

    tournament this week in Albert gameroom in Francort/Germany, and than here's my 1st ball on CHAMPION PUB, player 2, scoring... 80 pts !!!
    let's admit, i even dont remember what i have touched to score so low (in 2 balls than, 1 + save ball), the extra 30.000 pts came from bonus

    (for those who will ask, i'm not going for the Million from the skillshot)
