Super Orbit is one of the Gottleib SS "Remakes" from 1983.

The Pros:
A sublime and incredibly well balanced playfield layout belies the challenging nature. Bonus collect means that the game never is won and you are always striving for better scores. They took a page from Bally's book at the time and made it their own! While each copy of this deck will play differently, when you find the "sweet spots" of this game's shots, it sings like few others. While the game looks sparse, the interplay of the PF layout is incredible. Think Big Brave. The spinner is fun. The skill shot is very valuable. The vari-target is all about risk/reward being the most on this game in both aspects. Skill and accuracy is required in many forms all over the PF.

The Cons:
This game doesn't look that great to the eye. Not exactly the most exciting art package out there. This table MUST be properly maintained and kept with fresh rubbers. IF this game isn't cared for, it can get boring, fast.

The Takeaway:
This design is not for the timid. When it was released, this game had a hard time competing against Bally and Williams designs of the day and requires a certain "appreciation" for it's qualities. There is a fantastic combination of older and newer technologies on this deck. Learn this game and reap the rewards. Light that double bonus and collect from the top gate. Rinse and repeat! Easily said, rarely easily done.
