ROM TALES FROM THE CRYPT -CUSTOM-CPU/DISPLAY

SET OF 2 CUSTOM



Tales From The Crypt Unofficial v.4.00

(last updated October 2, 2015)

This beloved and classic horror themed pinball machine from 1993 just got better! Newly balanced scoring means all modes are now worth playing. Exciting new rules engage the player for added fun. Your host, The Crypt Keeper, now engages you even more with previously unused or rarely used voice calls. New varying Skill Shot speeds challenges the player. Newly adjustable Crypt Multiball advancement allows the player to customize how difficult it is to achieve multiball. Changes to Left and Right Ramp advancement for Fast Goring modes adds extra Risk vs. Reward challenge. Many bug fixes allow for smoother and more enjoyable game play.
