A one of a kind pinball game.

The pros:
A great theme with media from the movie and modes based on the characters and events of this film. An excellent source to pull an inspired game from. An original layout with some unique features including a kickback that slings the ball under the upper flipper. Considering this is a wide body game, this design feels good and the shots are solid. Similar to JJP’s PotC, this game does not play as wide as its cabinet may suggest.

The cons:
There is only one copy. I played this at the Chicago expo. Some parts of the game are still in development and it feels like it. But for all purposes, this game is a home brew/prototype and as such is not a production game. Some of the mode’s rules are not easy to follow. I am assuming this will only get better with more time and refinement.

The takeaway:
If you are lucky enough to get a chance to play this game, play this game. Then play it again. and then play it some more. Your timely opportunity is short. Make the most of it. Fresh ideas are few and far between in pinball. This game is one of them.

My sincere hope is that a manufacturer will come to an agreement with this game’s creator and we all can play TNBC!
