What a kick butt fun & classic game!

The short-flippered, split layout at the bottom is a bit of a throwback and may be off-putting to some, but Hurdy Gurdy is among the better-designed iterations of this style despite the frustration you'll have with the house balls. It rewards carom shots to send back balls to the upper playfield, and the center skill shot to light the green or yellow bumpers is essential to racking up a high score ball. You have to take the calculated risk sometimes of hitting the lit center box post in the lower playfield, so it's not merely an UTAD (return to the very top is quite difficult anyway). As an add a ball -- with up to 10 balls -- it allows for a "comeback" with a good ball. And what the hell -- there is a MONKEY RINGING A BELL WITH A HAMMER in the backbox. ARE YOU NOT ENTERTAINED?

I had the pleasure of playing a completely restored one recently and it reminded me that those non-Italian-layout games can be a hoot and a holler and a real test of skill.
