I love Bally’s of this era. Probably my favorite ems. This game isn’t the best, but it’s not bad either. Those captive ball shots are dangerous but rewarding and the center spinner is easy to rip. I like the art on this as well.

Had the game for awhile, could never get into it. Layout was ok, but those long tunnels with ball newton seemed to be a waste of real estate.

Nice comic art package. Backglass is the most interesting part of the game.

Perhaps fun as a first game, but as you get more experience, it would be easily replaced.

I really enjoy this game. It's simple (as most EMs are) but has a couple of satisfying shots, the best of which is the center spinner. The art work on the back glass is very vibrant and fun to look at.

This is not the game that you will sit, study, and learn. This game is the one where you crack open a beer, turn your mind off, and slap the ball around looking for that very satisfying knock of an extra game!

Ok this machine looks good. Love the art work on the machine and well if it was sitting in a arcade i would play it because of the classic look. But the play of the machine is Meh at best. Just lacks something to keep you playing. Even with fresh rubbers and hard angle on machine to give the ball some life, it's still is a sleeper. To many other games that are fun. But Hey It looks great !

Sky Kings is a game that is very straightforward. Too straightforward really...

The Pros:
Dick White did a really nice job on this art package. I usually don't sing his praises, but this game looks very nice. Captive balls and a spinner are great shots to go for. Sink the saucer at the top of the PF through the spinner if you can.

The Cons:
Jim Patla's worst design in my opinion. Understand that I am a huge Patla fan (I own a centaur ii and a Time Zone), but this game is a bore to play.

The Takeaway:
Open the outlanes, freshen the rubbers, sensitize the slings and steepen it up. Otherwise it's a snoozer.
