Blackout

Blackout

Launch Mission!

Blackout was the first Williams machine to have a computer controlled general illumination effect. This is seen during the "BLACKOUT" sequence. The backbox mounted GI relay would interrupt power to the playfield GI lamps. Stern's Galaxy was the first pinball title to introduce a computer controlled GI relay.

It also uses the same lane change concept first introduced by Williams "Firepower."

The sounds are pure 80s and the voice sounds like a computer. All in all, this is a solid state classic that will keep you coming back for more! Orbit Completed!
