Wonderful theme and all the movies and modes are integrated very well. I'm glad it's a widebody machine because there is a lot of things crammed into the cabinet. The video modes are fun and clever, and there are a ton of tasks to accomplish in the game to keep you playing for a long time.

Its a classic game... but I just could never really get into it.

A grail pin, just an all around great package. The use of the theme is so well done, so many elements of adventure and the films are incorporated so well here. It's a packed playfield yet it doesn't feel like you are fighting constant brick shots, theres always targets to hit and the sound package in this title is just phenomenal.

Had this game for 2 years in the late 90's. Sound effects are great, and there is a lot of fluidity. Video modes are really well done and logical (especially "Choose wisely"). Theme integration has nothing to envy to modern classics like Halloween, GnR or Godzilla.

Even by today's standard, the easy to understand ruleset is pretty hard to beat. Playfield artwork is kinda bland though, it gets the job done but there is no wow factor.

The well integrated John Williams orchestral score never failed to give me goosbumps. When you shoots the ramps, it's like the planes are shooting back at you when you hear "tac tac tac tac" ... I really like the sound work on this one. It was one of the first (if not the first) DCS sound system I think.

When the ball hit both slingshots you hear the sound effects from the scene when there is a big gunfight in Nepal in the first movie of the serie. It really draws you in this adventure. If you can find one in great condition, this is a big plus in any collection. Highly recommended.

A solid game out of a solid theme. I really enjoy the sounds of this game. It gives me a lot of positive and nostalgic feelings, together with the challenging and fun gameplay.

Für mich einer der besten Flipper Allee Zeiten. Er macht immer wieder Spaß und wird nie langweilig.

One of my all time favourite machines, theme is spot on. Artwork on the playfield is a little dated but the game was built in 93 so I can't give it too much stick. Shots are a little narrow but overall its a very fun game with plenty of mechs and shots. For me its a classic.

One of the best themes ever as well as one of the best widebodies ever. From the music to the sound bites (thanks John Rhys Davis!), the game draws you into a world of adventure. People say Indy's face on the backglass looks off, and I can see what they mean, but it's still one of my all time favorites. The playfield and cabinet art is all very solid, but perhaps just pales in comparison to the insane modern cabinets we are getting these days. Would love to own one someday, but definitely tough when they go for more than most LE prices!

Without a doubt in the running for greatest call out ever - "You cheat Dr. Jones!"

It is a fun game to play. I would not think of paying what they are apparently worth to some, but it is a good game.

A great Pin with a bunch of fun modes and great art! It looks even better with a Color-DMD! (Which i have played one with)

Overall a good game and I likely in the minority but I actually prefer the Stern Indiana Jones machine.

Timeless Classic compares to all the top games of today. Theme is perfect for pinball and it never gets old.

One of my go to games! Awesome fun and amazing theme integration. one of the shots is not great, and I don't like the side upper playfield, but other than that, this is one of the games I always want to come back to!

Peccato sia wide body

Finally tracked this one down in Lyon's CO (Great pinball arcade) and gave it many plays. The play-field is really interesting and heavily themed with toy representation from the movie. Playing it is like a step back in time in how it feels.

Overall, lots of fun, but the layout was lacking for fast action and had several areas that was obfuscated from being able to track the ball well. IS it great? I'm close to that, but would err on the side of very good. If you are an Indy fan, its a no brainer.

One of the best games of the 90's. My second favorite wide body pin after TZ. Toys are fantastic. Fun upper playfield. Excellent game!

For many the best pinball machine. I haven't really warmed to the table yet. I've had about 20-30 games in different places so far. It will probably take a while before you learn to love the table. In the first few games, the playing field looks very crowded and there is no smooth flow of the game. Either the table is overrated because of the fantastic Indiana Jones theme, or I haven't really recognized the quality of the table yet.

Played this on the Williams Pinball app and then, briefly, at Pinfest 2022 in Daventry, UK.

It’s a great B/W-era pin packed with great sound effects, great features and toys (drop targets, planes, the temple), and some varied modes, e.g. the huge multi-ball multiball.

I suspect my rating would go up with more plays!
