Gottlieb wedge head that is simple but extremely fun to play. Add-a-Ball in these classics is a game feature that resonates well for myself.

-Strategic game play in achieving all rollovers takes patience.

-Cycling of multiplier for drops to maximize scoring gets exciting.

-Achieving all rollovers on last ball or two to enable WOW (flashing star) and recover balls for continued play is a pure rush.

Overall, simplistic art package and gameplay make this a perfect pin to walk up to and decompress from a hard day.

Super fun game. Got to play it at a friends house. Now I want one for myself.

One of my favorite pinball tables, this one features everything you could ask for in an EM; plenty of drop target, moving targets, rollover to complete to enable truly high scores... If you ever see one cheap, scoop it up, you will not regret it!

Free Fall is a game that makes you shoot with intent and nudge with every opportunity.

The Pros:
Skill shots and choices to make from the first plunge. Lanes all over this game as well as standups on the right that make for tempting targets. You got skills? Can you hit the middle pop with so it just moves 1 space to x10 the drop target you need to hit? When was the last time you knew of a game that required a specific amount of hits to a pop, that you could control, to set up a shot to a drop target. Brilliant, really... Oh yeah... the x10 x10 shot to the targets require rollover setup and pop bumper rotation of the lights in front of the target bank. Some have said that the left flipper is under utilized on this game. That is what I use for the 4-7 drops on this table. Not a single inch of wasted space on this game that requires... Skills!

The Cons:
I don't own one. The PF may not be the most beautiful piece of pin-art, but it is absolutely utilitarian, like a good parachute should be.

The Takeaway:
This game feels like a card whiz/royal flush layout combined with lawman/atlantis sensibilities. Oh yeah... it's a Krynski game. The Gordon Morrison BG and PF are HOT! A brilliant package all around.

Ok of a drop target game. It is fun to get the special "Wow" light lit and then earn free balls, and try to get up to 10 balls to play. When building up your score and it rolls over 99,990 then a"100,000" light is lit next to the score reels on backglass. There is an awful lot of roll-over lanes on this pinball machine. The drop target bank is a bit to close to the flippers in my opinion. Pretty good for mid 70's. Classic sounding chimes.
