Black Hole


Black Hole

Gottlieb's BLACK HOLE was released in October 1981 in 2 different versions - to reduce costs, the exported versions had no 3D-Backglasses in a different Top and no speech as well.

Both versions combined reached a production-run 8,774 units making BLACK HOLE the 11th most successful Gottlieb Flipper-Game ever.
