Backglass is really nice. Its average game in my opinion, center drop target can drain you. It can get boring after a while, but it does have the power to get you interest from time to time. Maybe this pin should be pitched on a more aggressive slope to speed up the game play? I never had the opportunity to change the slope because the sample I play on is not my and the owner is set in his ways. But Im curious if the game play will be better with one 1°- 1.5° in slope change to the aggressive side

I really would like to rate this higher, because it is a beautiful game with an interesting playfield design. Unfortunately the game play is rather stale och slow here.

Plus:
Beautiful backglass art and a fun mix of space age (robot) and pool/gambling. This is even cooler than the Pinbot-series from Williams.

Interesting layout; the position of that captive ball, the kickout holes, the star roll-overs - it all looks like a ton of fun.

Easy-to-follow rule set and a successful entry in the pool table theme for pinball.

Bad:
Very slow game play.

Somehow what looks like a real cool and original playfield design turns out to be a rather boring and uninspired pinball table.

Once again, sound here is awful. A set of EM-era chimes would be better than this "pong"-sound. Compared to what Bally/ Williams put in their machines around the same time, this is embarrasing.

Good & Bad : a lot of weird ball-returns here that go straight down the middle. At least this makes the game play a little bit
more interesting and frustrating.

Go for the center shot and be amazed at how quickly you drain. When it hits, the ball goes dead then SDTM.

Surprising how much this game gets played. The rules are super simple, but it is appealing to experts as well as beginners. The play is slow and controlled, and you can hear the ball rolling a lot. A really fun table to keep in the mix if you have newer tables.

Pinball Pool is a very basic game, but it's a whole lot of fun, especially with more than one player. One of my favorite older pinball titles so far.

Just an all around fun game to play. Good artwork w/ good mix & use of colors. Sound is ok for its era, but not impressive. It has 14 drop targets, a captive ball for the 8-ball (& extra ball), two kick-out holes, and 3 rollover lanes in upper playfield. I like drop target games and the pool theme. You have to make multiple good shots to get your bonus up and bonus multiplier up.

Another drop target based pin by Gotlieb. Not their best, but rather popular in its day due to the addictive and relatively easy gameplay. Good for unwinding...
