Beat the Clock

Beat the Clock

The fourth of ca 10 games produced by Bally's subsidiary Wulff in Germany to save costs during some hard years for Bally from 1985-87.

This game is not a 3-5 ball game like most of them, but a time based game. You start the big white clock in the middle with 2 minutes.

Once you launch the ball it starts counting down. When you drain a ball and still have time left on the clock you can play on. If you have no time left the game ends.

You can stop the clock by hitting the letters S-T-O-P and you can add time by clearing the drop targets or through the outlanes or the bonus collector.

Once your clock runs out it becomes a very tense game.

The above intro text acts a bit like a 'wiki' and can be edited by all Pinside members, including you!
