When you call your pinball game "Pinball", it had better live up to the name.

The Pros:
A great layout with a solid balance between skill and luck. The lane to the right may be wide, but the sling switches will determine what award you get from the saucer when it is hit. Great shots with a SOLID layout that requires skill and almost STARS like luck to deal with the randomness of the angles, bounces and trajectories of the deck. Ripping the spinner is incredibly satisfying. While the drops may seem to be wide (ala. Williams Grand Prix), the game requires accurate aim and the ability to survive the fall back to the outhole once the shot is made. The scoring is balanced with an emphasis on the spinner when lit. As it should be.

The Cons:
The outlanes are incredibly hungry and if your (aim and) game is not on point, you are in for a short visit in front of this table. The frustration factor with this game is high. Any shot you make will put your ball in danger. Do you have the skills AND luck to survive?

The Takeaway: Bally games from this era are fantastic, and this one (when properly tuned) is right up there with them. Do you like pinball from the late 70's? do you like being humbled by a great game even when you know your own pinball game is on? Think Paragon, Think Phoenix. Think Stern "Pinball".

This game has made my want list.
