Noteworthy features

  • multi-integration microchip computer design: no separate ROM and RAM dedicated chips needed but used custom chips to hold ROM, access RAM and PIA features within itself, similar to Bally's Brain board idea (see Bally home-use-only pinballs).
  • Uses a 28-pin MPU R6504
  • single, resettable drop target design
  • rollover star switches
  • 3 chimes
  • knocker
  • horseshoe left loop
  • rolldown side lane with 2 entries
  • pin-jumper settings for up to 3 replays and options of awarding extra balls and specials
  • LED displays for scores and credits
  • separate LEDs for ball-in-play and number of players playing, similar to EM machines
  • right-outlane gate to feed ball back into shooter lane
  • plastic gear flipper design to minimize alignment issues
  • fully functional test mode capable of testing one GI string, feature lights and output chips, solenoids, and LED displays.


  • Cocktail Table Style
  • custom microchips capable of holding ROM and internally access RAM with PIA functions
  • identical design exported as Fascination's "Eros One".
  • Among the 3 different versions, System 3 is the most reliable and replaces system 2 due to its protection design for the 6530 chips. The PCB is colored beige instead of green.
