Mary Shelley's Frankenstein - To be Restored


Item description

Reconditioned - Waiting for a home to support restoration and revive this unique machine.

Produced by Sega
Released in 1995

One of only 3,000 units produced, this solid state electronic (SS) machine features 3 flippers, 1 ramp, multiball and an automatic plunger. Toys include a Frankenstein creature model that throws balls toward flippers or bumpers. Fred Young did voice characterizations on this game. The watch the video sequences repeat to see Sonic the Hedgehog as a Frankenstein creature with scars. The games uses the larger 192x64 pixel DMD. This game features Edgar Winter's classic song "Frankenstein" as on of the theme songs. Designed by John Borg with art by Paul Faris, dots/animation by Jack Liddon, Kurt Andersen, Scott Melchionda & Mark Raneses, music & sound by Brian Schmidt and software by Neil Falconer, Orin Day & John Carpenter. The purpose of Mary Shelley's Frankenstein pinball is to finish eight scenes indicated in a circular pattern on the playfield in order to engage a 6-ball multiball wizard mode after finishing all other modes:
Frankenstein Millions: Shoot all 12 FRANKENSTEIN letters within 30 seconds.
Stoning: Shoot a total of around 50-60 switches to collect a CREATION letter.
Creature Feature: The player has 30 seconds to spell CREATURE by shooting the ramp eight times.
Lynch Justine: Shoot the Left Lane for 3 consecutive hurry-ups.
North Pole: Shoot the North Pole VUK for a hurry-up starting at 90M.
Light Extra Ball: Extra ball is lit at the North Pole.
Voltage Mode: Shoot the ramp for 20M, then the North Pole for 30M, then the Ice Cave for 40M, then the Left Lane for 50M.
Graveyard: Make a monster by collecting two arms, two legs, a torso, and a head from the various holes. As well as these modes there are also two separate multiball modes. 'Geneva multi-ball' is a three-ball multi-ball mode and is started by shooting the ball into the 'Geneva' scoop while the Geneva light is activated. 'Creature multiball' is begun by looping the 'Creature ramp' a number of times and then shooting 'North Pole'. This triggers two ball multi-play which can, then, be upgraded to as much as a six ball multi-ball by shooting for the 'North Pole' once again followed by any jackpot shot.
Fun fact: Although this is a 4-player game, it played a role in the development of the 6-player feature used on subsequent Sega games. Programmer Orin Day tells us about the use of 6-players in Sega games: The 6-player display code was prototyped as a "proof-in-concept" on the Frankenstein display, but was first released in Baywatch. The Frankenstein multiball start display effect was repurposed in attract mode to promote this 6-player feature. Baywatch and Batman Forever also had this feature. When we switched back to the 128x32 display for Apollo 13 and subsequent games we also switched to the Whitestar hardware system. It's my recollection that at that time we coded both the game and display to take six players. It was removed from the system at the time of Sharkey's Shootout, no games after that had it (with the exception of NFL, which was a derivative of Striker, and any games from earlier in the catalog like South Park which were remanufactured).
