Made by CapCom in 1996, is a billiards theme pinball machine that was designed after the electromechanical style, that simulates chimes in the sound and although it has a dot matrix display complete with animations, the scoring emulates the EM scoring reels.

There are 4 games of billiards- 8 ball, 9 ball, Rotation, and perhaps the most exciting game is Cutthroat Countdown , which is started after the other 3 games have been completed. There are no ramps or subways, so all the balls are in plain sight for the entire duration of the game. There are 2 Multiballs in the game -Breakshot Frenzy ( a 3 ball multiball ) and Ball-O-Rama ( a 2 ball multiball).

This game plays 100%, with no errors. I stripped the playfield - cleaned and waxed it . All new starposts. I removed all the original yellow posts and replaced with red, green and purple. All the insert lamps and GI lamps are LED from CoinTaker. I added as many under starposts LEDs as possible. All new red, yellow, green and purple polyurethane rings from Cointaker are installed.The pop bumpers have Evo Brightcap LEDs,which are currently on maintained setting, but are programmable to flash with sound or vibration.

Every plastic has a custom protector made of 1/16" PETG clear plastic. All new coil sleeves installed on every solenoid. All new drop targets with new decals. All new colored post sleeves from Cliffy installed.

The lockbar mechanism and rails for raising and lowering the playfield have been thoroughly cleaned and polished.

The lockbar, side rails, backbox hinges, coin door and frame, and shooter plunger base have been sandblasted and powdercoated a custom red . The original color was black. New black legs and leg levelers. New glass. Original Translite in excellent condition. Latest version 1.3 upgraded on EPROMs.

Playfield wood rails have new yellow paint, and Interior of cabinet has new paint . Although not much of these are visible this needed to be done to cover the stains left behind by a very sloppy polish job on the playfield. The residue was impregnated in the paint as well as the old starposts. A very poor quality done by prior owner.

The playfield is in excellent condition. The cabinet has a few minor scratches that are only on the surface of the paint, no plywood damage.

The one component of this game that has taken some abuse in its life is the backbox. Roughly 5 deep gouges at the top and bottom sides ,that have been filled with a wood putty and a poor attempt at coloring.

If this game does not sell, I plan to have the backbox removed and taken to a professional restoration , as this is beyond my skill set to attempt.
This game is really a lot of fun for its simplicity. The action is fast, and the standout feature of the game is the load able captive ball design, that captures 3 balls in the center of the playfield by means of a large metal post on the end of a solenoid plunger. The captive balls are then caromed into the scoops and the post retracts into the playfield allowing the balls to be released for multiball and jackpot scoring.

This game has to be one of the finest versions of the game on the market, as only 1000 games were released. Additional pictures of before and after are available upon request.
