Noteworthy features

  • The Temple with A, B and C rollover lanes for mode selection.
  • The Shrunken Head with magnetic ball capture underneath it.
  • The idol has a magnet beneath the playfield which throws the ball around.
  • Vari-target on scoop.
  • Two spinners.

Trivia

  • Much like other Lawlor games, RBION contains references to his prior games. The shrunken head says "It's not plugged in yet, mon", which is a reference to the TAF. When the machine is tilted, the Ripley character states "skate with penguins at your own risk in the Ripley zone" as a reference to TZ.
