Noteworthy features

  • The game uses 4 fat, kicking targets--it kicks the ball away when it hits the target. Gottlieb is the only manufacturer of this unique feature.
  • The game uses 2 vertical up-kickers (VUK), one to kick up the ball from the main playfield to the upper level and one in the basement to kick up to the main floor.
  • On the main level features a mechanical trap door the game controls, under the ramp. When the light is lit or the ball passes through the lane on the left side of the lower bumper, the trap door opens and remains open until the computer senses the ball dropping through the floor. It is reset at the end of ball.
  • Game uses 5th scoring display as a bonus counter. It can be multiplied by the bonus multiplier. Bonus points can be doubled when the player activates any floor's double-bonus feature.
  • "Swallowing" stand-up center target -- when hit, ball gets swallowed and enters the basement
  • Has double-scoring feature for each of the playfields
  • uses fluorescent displays with smaller status display
