Gottlieb’s four-player electromechanical Sinbad was loosely based on Columbia Pictures’ 1977 feature film “Sinbad and the Eye of the Tiger”. Gottlieb had recently been purchased by Columbia Pictures, and Sinbad represents one of the first attempts at synergy between a Columbia property and their newly acquired pinball division. Two-player electromechanical and four-player solid state versions of the game were also made, titled Eye of the Tiger and Sinbad respectively. Rules remain the same across both EM games, but differ slightly from the solid state version.
