Fireball Classic is a cool hommage to the legendary 1972 EM game. Its simplicity is where this game shines. It just plays very well and is always challenging.

The machine respects the rules of the '72 original while adding to them in the form of new scoring opportunities. The added bonus system is simple and well thought out.

I thought I would miss the zipper flippers more than I actually do. The longer flippers make this game much more approachable for casual players.

Bally's Cheap Squeak sound effects are basic but do a nice job for this game. Speech is not missed and would have probably been overkill here.

The artwork is well done. It pays respect to the iconic artwork of the '72 edition. Only the cabinet would be better if closer to the original.

The only negative for this game is the particle board cabinets that Bally used during this generation. They tend to destroy themselves and make the games feel cheap. When I get the chance, I'll put my FBC in a robust early SS Bally cabinet.

This game has gimmicks for its age - mag locks, closing flippers, multiball options, and that spinning disc...but it plays wayyyyyy too erratic for me to enjoy. The stubby flippers and that disc make ball control a joke. You could probably play this blindfolded and score the same. Really hard to get into that groove with this game.
