Noteworthy features

  • "Dunk the dummy" - Troll puppet on playfield
  • Three coloured roller coaster ramps, one of them sends the ball screaming under the flippers; a bit like in The Flintstones.
  • Info-kiosk - Mini-dot matrix marquee
  • A special drop target and opto-switch mechanism that holds the ball in place while starting modes.

Trivia

  • A very fun machine, not too difficult and certainly not a deep ruleset. But entertaining nonetheless..!
  • “Other games thought they had a monopoly on this sign” appears on the playfield LED sign. Lawlor’s previous game for Stern was Monopoly, using the same LED display.

Backbox ornament(s)

The Backbox features the typical translite and single fluorescent bulb seen on most modern Stern machines. No backbox animation is present.
