For me an avoid game. I don't own it and I wouldn't be willing to pay anything for playing it. Watch your ball drain! Like on a bagatelle game. The upper targets can hardly be shot with skill. May the bumpers be with you. Regarding the art package or backglass activities (which was custom in that era) there isn't anything that will stop me to look.

Ice Revue is yet another reason why Master K is the MAN!

The Pros:
5 lanes at the top to test your nudging and 6 standups to test your aim. With the 5 ball ruleset you have to hit EVERY top lane. Another Evel Knievel (light your spinners!) variant of the 3-5 ball rule in the game where the 5 ball game is much harder than the 3 ball ruleset. Pin-skills must be activated! Roy Parker did a fantastic job with the BG and the PF artwork! Hitting all 6 standups with the Eeeety Beeeety Fleeepers is no easy task considering trapping the ball is a deadly proposition. Table english is the best way to rack up points in the pops, sooooo work it! The game with 5 balls should last about a minute and you are going to have to earn every second of it. And I thought Oursler (tm) outlanes were tough! If that ball goes to the sides at the bottom you'd better be skillful AND lucky. Play on!

The Cons:
The game is rather simple. Then again, this is 1965. Personally, I'm not captivated by the theme, but so what. My real beef with this deck is that the big points at the saucer are more luck than skill. Agh!

The Takeaway:
A great shooters game that keeps you nudging and making the most of every opportunity that you have for shots with the flippers.

The dead bumper makes this less fun than Ice Show, but the different arrangement of outlines as opposed to its AAB sister makes this an overall easier game. Not my favourite theme nor artwork.

A simple game to play, but also challenging. The playfield is very busy , loaded with pop and passive bumpers, 6 stand up targets, a couple kick out holes and a pair of high powered 2" flippers.
This is a great game to own and a must have for any wedge head collector, I own this title and really enjoy it.

Get yourself one !

Another great mid 1960's Gottlieb wedgehead, with art work by Roy Parker. Looks lovely in a dark room. Plays great as you have to control the ball to take out numbers 1 through 6 in order to light the kick out holes which have special and 100 and 200 points.

Plays surprisingly fast for an EM and is an all round classic wedgehead. So many great games around 1965 - 1967, that is gets hard to separate them.

Update. This game may not have the best art but I am finding that for playability, this game is one of the best em's I have ever played. A replay is an accomplishment and once the 6 numbers have been taken out ( no easy feat ) , it is a race against time to score big points in those KO holes.

Another wonderful mid sixties wedge head from the greatest maker of pinball games. Light all the bumpers via the top rollovers and they light sequentially for a Special. Put the lights out on the bottom four targets to light the four side drains. Put the lights out on the other two targets to light a pair of kickout holes for random higher scores or Specials. Sounds easy, it isn't. It's a surprisingly good game to play and it keeps you coming back. The Roy Parker artwork and Ed Krynski design combine to make this a classic.
