Noteworthy features

  • Cryo Claw. A mechanical arm, equipped with a magnet, controllable (left/right) with the flipper buttons. Steer the ball over one of the five modes and release the ball to start it.
  • Captive cars (Car Crash). Instead of a captive ball, this machine has two captive cars. Hit the first one hard enough and it will crash into the other, accompanied by a very good sound/animation package.
  • Machine has two hand grips, with thumb and index finger operated buttons, to control flippers, ball launch and secret stuff. Playing with the handles (instead of with the 'regular' cabinet flipper buttons) actually scores more points in some of the modes.
  • Captive eyeball for Retina Scan mystery feature.


  • Playing with Demolition Man's gun handles (instead of with the 'regular' cabinet flipper buttons) actually scores more points in some of the modes. When using the trigger buttons as flipper buttons, all Combos made gives an extra million to the bonus.
  • Doug Watson was originally assigned to do the translite art for Demolition Man. After repeated rejections from people reportedly in the camp of Wesley Snipes (heads weren't proportionate & Wesley looked sinister), Doug's time to work on the game ran out. Linda Deal took over the project. According to Doug, she didn't have too much experience in doing realistic portraits. The result is what ended up in the final game.
