Very clean game played on location. This has a very old school feel for 1991, and is well programmed, with easy to follow gameplay. The shots are pretty easy, and the machine feels more like an EM, or late 70's pinball machine, except with a smaller, scrolling LED. There is a satisfying 1 million shot that hits a lit target and plays a dull bell, which is very old school. Not a lot of random drains. One complaint is that once the drop targets on the upper left and right are almost complete, hitting the rubber makes the ball just bounce back and forth without much randomness. Overall, pretty good.

Fun game. 2 modes of play. Modern and vintage. Vintage gives you chime sounds and different scoring.

If you can find one give it a chance.

Surprisingly good, given the artwork, theme and lack of ramps. The choice between "present" and "past" is a nice touch. The skill shot is very, very hard.

Gottleib's Street Series games play better than I thought they would. I can also see how they would get crushed by the Bally/Williams lineup of 1991.

The Pros:
A solid and simple design from Jon Norris that plays quite well. The orbits to the inlanes remind me of European designs that we saw in the 80's. No ramps mean a different approach to designing games. The strange thing is... this game feels like it has ramps with the orbits at the top of the deck feeding back to the respective inlanes. The bullseye drop target is a nice touch at the top of the PF that requires accurate aim. Lots to shoot for with the drops and the upper flipper. The double lane skill shot is also nicely done as it works both ways from the plunger and from the PF. The drop target banks remind you that this is a Gottleib design. Nostalgia mode is a nice addition as well. Whhen properly maintained, this game is deceptively fast.

The Cons:
I usually don't like the feel the flipper mechs on system 3 Gottleib games and the little blue displays are hard to read. 3rd flipper is kind of useless.

The Takeaway:
This game plays better than one might think. One of the best playing Gottleib street games (Vegas... ugh). Before you walk on by, give this one a try.
