Great late gen EM title. The first gen sound board like this can sound very dated unfortunately. In a way though, this one works better than most since the pitch of the beeps, can seem like morse code, and in this way, it seems applicable. A cool 'hiss' when bombs are dropped on ships, and you get a great backbox explosion lamp effect to go with it. Also, this has a high score (~400k) biri biri siren which is a great touch, and apparently limited to euro machines only.

Rules are very deep for a EM multiplayer, including a regular bonus, advanced mostly by alternating mines near the top of the PF, a separate hole bonus attached to a spinner stepping mech ala WMS Grand Prix, and a kick out feature which can light the spinner and pops and 10x bonus, and a drop target feature which can advance drop values, and light a special for AAB.

The lit spinner and pops feature is particularly interesting as it is linked to a 555 timer circuit, so the player is limited to 10 seconds, or end of ball, for this feature.

Gameplay is fast and furious. Outlane saves will encourage and provide an opportunity for players to keep the ball alive, and DC powered pops provide really fast and lively action.

Combat is a fantastic game! I would put this game up against any early solid state single-ball game. The speed is incredible; unlike any EM I’ve ever played. As with most Zaccaria’s, the artwork is absolutely stunning: Beautiful hand drawn playfield with vibrant colors, screen printed cabinet with an awesome battleship and nice backglass with explosion lighting effect.
The playfield features really tie in well with the WWII theme: Land mine field rollover buttons at the top and drop targets that are bombs which activate the backglass explosion.
I would call this a player’s game, because it takes quite a bit of skill to keep alive and score big. The saucer holes are key to lighting 10x bonus and lighting the pops for more points. Hit down all bomb drop targets to light extra ball/replay. The left saucer hole advances when you hit the yellow stand-up targets; but it’s a risk to send the ball into the Very active slings, which then send it towards the outlanes.
This is an incredibly rare game, so if you ever come across one at a show; do not pass it by.

If you are a fan of EM's this game is tough to beat. Great theme; shame they didn't have other WWII themes. Fantastic art package and solid game play.
