Another Zacc game from 1986 that is laid out like a Gottlieb game from 1976.

The Pros:
A solid layout that has a serious dose of rish/reward with the roto-target in the middle of the PF. Fantastic geometry and an orbit to the lanes at the top as well as a horseshoe loop on the right means that the ball is always moving dangerously. Mileage on this table will give you the subtleties of the game's ruleset.

The Cons:
Sounds are straight out of a grainy Shaw Brothers movie. The PF and BG artwork are horrid.


The Takeaway:
A good game that will make you think more than you thought it would while you enjoy the action. Play one and enjoy the pin-fu!

The central roto target is a nice toy, until you realize how dangerous it is - many of your shots will end in the outlines. So after a few games, I adopted a different strategy, aiming for Black Belt drop targets (to increase red special) and Kata (green special). Depending on settings, you will then be awarded an Xtra ball, or millions of points. Art is OK, and both PF and BG seem to age well.
The weakest part of that pin is its sound, kind of a caricature of "asian style" music.

Bit dissapointing to play, but I've only had a few games... the sounds/music also let it down.

After a few more games on this, I have a better feel for how it plays... It's a bit like an add-a-ball, you can rack up extra balls on a counter on the backglass, and that's how to play the game: Max out your extra ball count and then go for things that score points. More enjoyable than I originally thought.
