    Attack From Mars

    • Manufacturer: Midway Games
    • Designer: Brian Eddy
    • Machine Type: Solid state
    Attack from Mars is a 1995 pinball game designed by Brian Eddy, and released by Midway (under the Bally label). In this game, Martians began to invade the Earth, and it's up to the player to destroy the Martian fleet, save all the major cities, and then head off to Mars to destroy the Martian empire and conquer Mars. Among the game's noted features include four dancing Martian figures and a strobe light (for Strobe Multiball). When all six of these objectives are met, shoot the "Stroke of Luck" scoop to start Rule the Universe, a four-ball wizard mode. In this mode, everything is lit, and the objective is to score 5 billion points with at least two balls in play, and if you succeed, you will score an extra 5 billion points. Attack From Mars was followed up with Revenge From Mars, released in 1999. It was designed by George Gomez, and it featured most of the original AFM design team . It was the first game to run on Williams/Midway's Pinball 2000 platform. WMS Industries introduced slot machines in 2011 called Attack from Mars and Revenge from Mars.

    Star Trek: The Next Generation

    Star Trek: The Next Generation

    • Manufacturer: Williams
    • Designer: Steve Ritchie
    Star Trek: The Next Generation is a widebody pinball game, designed by Steve Ritchie and released in November 1993 by Williams Electronics. It was part of WMS' SuperPin series (see also The Twilight Zone and Indiana Jones: The Pinball Adventure), and was based on the TV series. It is the only pinball machine that features three separate highscore-lists. Apart from the regular highscore-list and the buy-in-list, it also features a reminiscence to The Machine: Bride of Pin*Bot billionaires club. According to an interview, Steve Ritchie, a longtime Star Trek fan, stated that getting the license was a challenge, due to Paramount insisting that they don't want to put any violence in the game; however, he told them that he would never violate the Prime Directive. Originally, the game was supposed to be based on the 1992 film, Under Siege. The game includes voice clips recorded by cast members Patrick Stewart (Captain Jean-Luc Picard), Jonathan Frakes (Commander William Riker), Brent Spiner (Lieutenant Commander Data), LeVar Burton (Lieutenant Commander Geordi La Forge), Marina Sirtis (Counselor Deanna Troi), Gates McFadden (Dr. Beverly Crusher), Michael Dorn (Lieutenant Worf) and John de

    The Simpsons

    • Manufacturer: Data East
    • Designer: Ed Cebula
    • Machine Type: Solid state
    The Simpsons is a 1990 pinball game released by Data East Pinball. It is based on the animated sitcom The Simpsons and features many elements from the series, such as character voices and music. The game was popular in the United States, becoming a hit for Data East Pinball. It has been cited as helping increase the popularity of pinball machines at the beginning of the 1990s. The Simpsons pinball game was followed by The Simpsons Pinball Party in 2003. The pinball machine is modeled after the animated sitcom The Simpsons. The bumpers are dressed as nuclear reactors and several characters from the show functions as targets. Other targets depict the Simpson family's favorite foods, such as chocolate and pork rinds, and the family bowling. The machine is equipped with a Yamaha synthesizer that plays the theme song from the television series. It also features a computerized voice system on an OKI sound chip, and the characters are constantly talking. The original voices of the characters from the series are used. Mr. Burns says "Don't blame me; I didn't do it," Homer taunts you with "Don't you know how to use the flippers?", while Bart says lines like "Don't have a cow, man," "Way to

    The Simpsons Pinball Party

    • Manufacturer: Stern
    The Simpsons Pinball Party is a 2003 pinball game released by Stern Pinball. The Simpsons Pinball Party is based on the animated sitcom The Simpsons that airs on the Fox network. The game is said to feature one of the most complex rule sheets that were ever designed for a pinball machine featuring the ability to stack various modes and multi-balls on top of each other. Reaching the "Super Duper Mega Extreme Wizard Mode" requires an unusually large number of shots that have to be achieved and only a few people have ever reached it. The game is the successor to the first Simpsons pinball game, entitled The Simpsons, which was released by Data East Pinball (the predecessor to Stern Pinball) in 1990. In 2007, Stern Pinball president Gary Stern said in an interview with License! that "We first licensed The Simpsons for pinball in the early '90s, when we were Data East Pinball. While we export about one-third of our games, that first model did especially well in the U.S." He went on to say that more than a decade later, "we started to manufacture a totally new game, The Simpsons Pinball Party. We coordinated with Fox and The Simpsons folks who did the art for the game, as well as the

Completing all Computer Screen modes lights the Control Room for System Failure, a six-ball "wizard mode" where all shots on the playfield are worth 1 million points. It lasts for 45 seconds.

    "300"

    • Manufacturer: Gottlieb
    • Designer: Ed Krynski
    • Machine Type: Electro-Mechanical
    "300" (the exact machine name includes the quotation marks) is a pinball machine produced by Gottlieb with a bowling theme. The title is a reference to a perfect game in the sport, in which a bowler scores 300 points. Gottlieb 300 pinball, Gottlieb Top Score pinball—same game, just different number of players (4 players versus 2 players). Gottlieb sold this game design in the two varieties, though they are essentially exactly the same game (with slight artwork differences). The 2 player version (Top Score) had a lower price than the 4 player (300), and was marketed to game operators with less money to spend. This game used animated backbox red (bowling) balls for the bonus unit. Two kickout holes, 2 pop bumpers, 1 spinner, 2 slingshots, two 3" flippers. Has the same right side lane scoring as Gottlieb Sheriff pinball (1971), and similar left side score as Gottlieb Super Soccer. Only a couple Gottlieb pinball games made during the 1970s used backbox animation. Same backbox animation unit as Super Soccer pinball. They made 7925 Gottlieb 300 pinball machines, and 3200 Gottlieb Top Score pinball machines. Machines in good condition can sell today for around $400.

    Spirit of '76 was the first microprocessor-based pinball table. The table was based on the technology Dave Nutting Associates had created for Bally in 1974. The firm licensed the technology to Mirco Games in 1975 to create the table, since Bally was not initially interested in the system. The table had a fairly small production run and was regarded as having an unattractive design by critics.

    • Manufacturer: Gottlieb
    • Designer: Harry Mabs
    • Machine Type: Electro-Mechanical
    Humpty Dumpty is a historically important pinball machine released by Gottlieb on October 25, 1947. Named after Humpty Dumpty, the nursery rhyme character, it is considered to be the first pinball machine to include flippers — invented by Harry Mabs  — distinguishing it from earlier bagatelle game machines. Humpty Dumpty had six of these flippers, referred to as "flipper bumpers" by the company. However, unlike modern pinball tables, they faced outward instead of inward and were not placed at the bottom of the table near the main outhole. Like all early pinball tables, Humpty Dumpty was constructed with wood and had backlit scoring in preset units of scoring rather than mechanical reel or electronic LED scoring.

    Black Hole

    • Manufacturer: Gottlieb

    • Machine Type: Solid state
    Black Hole is a pinball game released in 1981 by Gottlieb. It is notable for having two playfields: one on top with a conventional slope, and one mounted underneath, sloping away from the player. It has no connection with the 1979 film of the same name. Black Hole was the first machine to feature a lower playfield viewed through a window in the upper playfield. It was touted as the highest-grossing pinball game of all time shortly after its release, partly due to (or despite) the fact that it was the first pinball game which cost 50 cents to play (Although, many argue that Williams Black Knight, and Firepower were already at 50¢ before the release of Black Hole). Black Hole's robotic speech is generated by a Votrax SC-01. Black Hole can be seen in the background of the 1983 movie Les Compères Black Hole can be seen in the background of the 1983 movie Strange Brew Black Hole can be seen in the background of the 1989 movie ''Next Of Kin The Phrase "Do You Dare To Enter The Black Hole?" which the machine says during attract mode was etched in the vinyl runout grooves on LP versions of the band Hovercraft's 1997 album, Akathisia.

    Fireball

    • Manufacturer: Bally
    • Designer: Ted Zale
    • Machine Type: Electro-Mechanical
    Fireball is a historically notable pinball machine model released by Bally in 1972. The table was one of the first to have a modern sci-fi/fantasy type of outer space theme as well as elaborate, painted artwork on the sides of the table. The game itself is notable as it featured several pinball innovations, including a spinning disc, moveable "zipper" flippers, and trapped ball bonuses. Fireball was an also an early table to have the multi-ball (three balls, in this case) feature. Fireball's main surface and raised surface also featured elaborate artwork of a flaming "fire man", flames, and stars in space. The table is highly valued as a collector's item. Partly due to the success of the original "Fireball" pinball machine, Bally released a "Professional Home Model" available to the regular consumer beginning in 1978. The layout was different from the arcade Fireball, it was a slight modification of the Bally's Hocus Pocus playfield with the subtraction of a ball diverter gate. Richard Linklater plays a rotoscoped Fireball in his film Waking Life, in the penultimate scene where he expounds Dickian gnosticism to the protagonist.

    The Addams Family is the best selling pinball machine since the 1930s, having sold 20,270 units. Manufactured by Midway (under the Bally name), it is a solid state electronic game. It was based on the 1991 movie of the same name, and features custom speech (mostly drawn from the movie) by the movie's stars, Raul Julia and Anjelica Huston. The machine's game card describes the game objective as being to "Explore the strange world of the Addams Family." With that in mind there is no single player goal, though there are two central objectives: Other lesser objectives include: A number of simultaneous factors came together to give The Addams Family its record-setting sales figures. Around the time of the game's release, video arcade games were declining in popularity, due largely to the technological ascent of home systems. Meanwhile, pinball in the recent years prior had witnessed a strong wave of technological innovation. The dot-matrix display, for example, had just been added to the first pinball machine (Data East's Checkpoint) about a year before, and CPU advances allowed machines to perform simultaneous video, audio and gameplay functions more smoothly.

    • Manufacturer: Williams
    • Designer: Larry DeMar
    • Machine Type: Solid state
    Black Knight is a 1980 pinball game designed by Steve Ritchie (who also provides the Knight's voice) and released by Williams Electronics. This game is known for its two-level playfield (a first for a pinball game), and introduced the patented "Magna-Save", in which a player-controlled magnet is used to prevent outlane drains. This was first of a series of four games that were both two-level and featured magna-save. The later games (Jungle Lord, Pharaoh, Solar Fire) feature a variable type magna-save in that the magnet is energized as long as the player likes (up to the time they have earned); on Black Knight the machine controls the magnet time (adjustable by the operator from three to ten seconds). The sequel to Black Knight abandoned the variable magna-save which had become standard at that point and reverted to a fixed time. Balls drained down the outlane in spite of using magna-save caused the machine to laugh at the player, reinforcing the theme of the game as an evil knight vs. the player. Black Knight was not the first game to have electro magnets installed - an earlier example is Williams' Electronics Gorgar (the first "talking" pinball game), which features an area of the

    • Designer: John Popadiuk
    • Machine Type: Solid state
    Cirqus Voltaire is a 1997 pinball game, designed by John Popadiuk and released by Midway Games (under the Bally label). The theme involves the player performing many different marvels in order to join the circus. Some of the captivating features include a neon light running along the right-hand ramp, a pop bumper that rises up from the middle of the playfield at certain times, and a mini-playfield at the top of the center ramp with a magnet to catch the ball for locking. The most notable feature is the Ringmaster, a head that rises at certain times and makes cracks against the player. It was the first Williams/Bally pinball machine missing a real replay-knocker, a device driven by a coil to produce a loud bang when hammering against the wood of the cabinet or backbox. Instead this sound effect was pre-recorded and played via the regular speakers. It was also the second machine (after Capcom's Flipper Football, released in 1996) to move the dot-matrix display (DMD) from the backbox right into the cabinet, so the player isn't distracted from gameplay when watching the DMD (an idea that was taken to the maximum with the Pinball 2000 architecture two years later).

It is also the only pinball machine in existence that featured the possibility to directly link two machines together and having two players play against each other in realtime (unlike the tournament system introduced by Pinball 2000 and later Stern machines that just feature extended highscore lists). The scoring is like the real NBA, meaning that 300 points is a terrific score. The scoring is balanced, and completely linear. That in itself is a major difference from other pinball machines. Additionally it is the only WPC machine that does not feature an after ball bonus count. The objective of NBA Fastbreak is to get to Trophy Multiball by completing six tasks, win a championship ring, and score as many points as possible along the way. The six tasks are: When all the tasks are completed, Trophy Multiball automatically starts (if you lose the ball before it starts, it will start on the next ball). The player then has unlimited balls for about 20 seconds. The center ramp is lit for 2 points and the goal is to outscore the "other team" (it seems like 6 or 7 shots are necessary to do this). If

    Who Dunnit

    • Manufacturer: Midway Games
    Who Dunnit is a Midway Games pinball machine with a 1940s style and murder mystery theme. The playfield features up to five different murder mysteries by revealing clues by sending the ball to an elevator, phone, or slot machine. The machine accepts up to four players, and features 4-ball play. The aim of the game is to solve 5 murder mysteries by interrogating suspects and finding evidence before heading to the Roof in the game to catch the killer. There can be a maximum of 4 balls in play at any time, and can support up to 4 players. There are five "balls", but once they are all exhausted, the player can have an extra 3 "balls" by inserting a credit. If the player gets their initials on the high scores list, they may be awarded 1 free go (or 2 free goes if they manage to get enough points to become Grand Champion). There are 4 suspects and 1 victim during a case, the suspects names are mainly Tony, Victoria, Butler (previously known as Walther), Bruno (previously known as Tex) and Trixie. If the player chooses the wrong suspect, they will say "Sorry, I have an alibi," following by a 20, 30 or 40 million "Suspect Eliminated" bonus. A hint on finding the killer is that all suspects

    Revenge From Mars

    • Manufacturer: Midway Games
    • Designer: George Gomez
    • Machine Type: Solid state
    Revenge from Mars is a 2000 pinball machine manufactured by Midway (under the Bally label). It is the sequel to Attack from Mars, that also has the same theme. This game was the last machine manufactured by Midway and the first to use the Williams Pinball 2000 system that overlays interactive video onto the mechanical playfield (see also Star Wars Episode I). An additional first was the default non-existence of a replay/special. Instead of awarding the player a free game when reaching a certain amount of points, it was decided to rather award extra balls (default at 50 million and 200 million). Additionally the match sequence at the end of a pinball game (a random free play award) was discarded. This default behaviour can be changed by the operator though. There are 9 different main modes which can each be completed to obtain a Saucer light. These 9 modes are divided into 3 different groups and are listed below. The initial mode begins upon its selection at the start of the game (either manually with the action buttons or automatically after the choice times out). The modes move from left to right in sequence automatically after the previous mode has been completed (i.e. there is

    Baffle Ball

    • Manufacturer: Gottlieb
    • Designer: David Gottlieb
    • Machine Type: Mechanical
    Baffle Ball is a pinball machine created in 1931 by Gottlieb. It was the first pinball machine, and was designed by company founder David Gottlieb. It cost a penny to play and gave players seven balls to shoot into scoring holes. It spawned a home version in 1932 called Baffle Ball Senior. Baffle Ball was responsible for the launch of the company Gottlieb that went on to make pinballs such as Ace High and Black Hole. It used no electricity and for 1 cent, players got 5 balls. They would be fired up onto the playfield and fell into pockets and holes (there were no flippers). Some were worth more than others, and players tried to fire the ball at just the right speed. The best thing to get was the Baffle Ball, which was getting the ball into a tiny hole at the top. It would double all points! All scoring had to be done by hand. It would sit atop bar counters and the bar tender may award payouts for high scores. It seems rather basic now among all of these electronic flipper pinballs nowadays, but it was well ahead of its time. It is very popular with collectors and is very sought-after.

    Black Rose is a pinball machine produced by Midway (released under the Bally name). Black Rose was released around the same time as The Addams Family pinball machine, whose production ran long, making Black Rose a rare game with few units. Black Rose seems to have some controversy on the rec.games.pinball group, with mixed views. The basic idea of the game is to sink ships. The game features a rotating cannon situated underneath the playfield used to aim the ball at targets to award letters in the word "SINK SHIP". During multiball you also get letters for shooting flashing ramps. Once SINK SHIP is spelled, you load the cannon to light the center shot (the "Broadside") to get big points.

    • Manufacturer: Williams

    • Machine Type: Solid state
    Medieval Madness (full title: "Ye Olde Medieval Madness") is a Williams pinball machine released in June 1997. Designed by Brian Eddy and programmed by Lyman Sheats, Medieval Madness (often abbreviated MM in the pinball collecting community) had a production run of 4,016 units. It was an immediate critical and popular success, earning well on location and achieving widespread popularity among collectors. Demand for the machine soon outstripped supply significantly, and as of 2005 Medieval Madness machines often sell for prices well in excess of $8,000 , sometimes much higher if in pristine condition (when purchased new in 1997, the machine cost approximately $3,000). Much of the game's dialog was written by Scott Adsit and Kevin Dorff, at the time, members of the Second City Mainstage in Chicago. The centerpiece of the playfield is an animated castle with a solenoid-controlled portcullis and motorized drawbridge. One of the game's primary objectives is to "destroy" six castles by hitting the castle's entryway with the pinball. A specific number of hits will lower the drawbridge, exposing the portcullis; additional hits will cause the portcullis to rise, and shooting the ball into

Steve designed about 90% the game on a cocktail napkin during a flight, while flying from Atari to Williams. The game also broke the factory production record at Williams and is still Steve's biggest seller.

    Checkpoint is a 1991 pinball machine released by Data East. The game had the first dot matrix display (DMD) ever used on a pinball game. It used a "half-height" DMD as compared to the standard DMD used by Williams. The machine's gameplay centered around a ramp that "clocked" the ball's speed, by measuring the timing between the ball's hitting of two switches, and translating it into a speed analogous to the speed of a racing car; so the lowest possible speed was 80MPH, and the player could achieve speeds of upwards of 250MPH. In addition to the normal high score list, Checkpoint also let the player record their initials if they set the machine's speed record. Various objectives were lit or scored by achieving certain shot speeds. There are four single-ball modes in the game: The game also features two multiball modes: At the beginning of the first ball, the player can also select which style of music should be played during the game (the first game to offer such a feature).

    Guns N' Roses

    • Manufacturer: Data East
    Guns N' Roses was a pinball machine based on the rock group Guns N' Roses. The artwork featured photos by Robert John from his book Guns N' Roses: The Photographic History. This game was a widebody pinball game with several unique twists. Among them, was an old fashioned revolver, which players used to start the game as opposed to the typical plunger. When a quarter was inserted, the band's famous "Welcome to the Jungle" song (recorded from a concert) would play. Also included on the soundtrack is the Use Your Illusion outtake "Ain't Going Down," which is the only official release of the song. The backdrop was illuminated with lights in the shape of the famous Guns N' Roses seal, and Axl Rose's tattoos, featured in the Appetite for Destruction album artwork. The multi-ball can be activated when the yellow light is lit on the G ramp, this will open a trap door and send the ball into the snake pit (if the ball is shot up the ramp which is a hard shot), pulling the rose plunger will then activate the multi-ball. An "R" ramp was also featured completing the "GN'R" logo. The game play is a mode-based game not unlike that of The Addams Family, Jurassic Park, or Tommy. No longer in

    Creature from the Black Lagoon is a pinball machine designed by John Trudeau ("Dr. Flash") and released by Midway (under the Bally brand name). It is loosely based on the movie of the same name. The game's theme is 1950's drive-in theater. Its major feature is a holographic creature, set in the middle of the playfield, that lights up and waves its "hand" back and forth during multiball play. The holograph is set behind a green plastic insert, so that the monster appears green. The game was licensed from Universal Studios by Bally so that the backglass artwork, the cabinet artwork, and the creature looked like the original movie actors and monsters. There were five 1950's songs put in the game. These are: All of the songs are instrumental versions, except for Red River Rock, which was originally an instrumental. The songs are played by the game's sound hardware. Creature from the Black Lagoon is available for purchase as licensed table of The Pinball Arcade for Xbox 360, iOS, Android, PlayStation 3, PlayStation Vita, Mac OS X and in the future for Nintendo 3DS, Windows and Wii U.

    Riverboat Gambler is a gambling themed pinball machine produced by Williams. Pinball machine designer Mark Ritchie reportedly sings the song that plays during the game, whose gravel-voiced, New Orleans-style male voice sounds similar to Louis Armstrong. In the center of the head of the machine, a vertical roulette wheel operates more like the Wheel of Fortune than an actual roulette wheel and does not have a ball. 7 of 16 sections are black, 7 are red, which alternate, with two green spaces that have stars on opposite sides. Located directly above the roulette wheel, a four digit display keeps track of virtual chips. The player uses chips earned on the playfield to bet on the roulette wheel. There is an easter egg in the game. With game on, and ball at plunger, press and hold the Red and Black buttons, then press PASS 3 times, Black 3 times, Red 3 times, and Green 3 times. The display will shimmer, then press Black and Red together. The display will display "HELLO WORLD".

    • Manufacturer: Gottlieb
    • Designer: John Osborne
    • Machine Type: Solid state
    Haunted House is a pinball game released in 1982 by Gottlieb. Haunted House, with its industry first of 3 playfields, is considered to be an iconic pinball game. Although Bally’s Elektra has 3 playfields and predates Haunted House, Elektra’s lower playfield was self-contained and uses its own captive ball for scoring. The lower playfield of Haunted House is accessible any time during the game, and the one ball travels between all three playfields. Each playfield is themed to be a part of a haunted house, the main level being the main floor, the lower level being the basement, and the upper level being the attic. It has been called the perfect pinball package by some admirers. However, it is often criticized for the lack of both speech and multi-ball, which were left out due to cost-saving measures. Other criticism stems from waning interest in its game play after a while, although, this is true with any other amusement device after time. The ball can only be lost from the main playfield, as the ball draining on the attic or cellar playfields will always be returned to another playfield for play to continue. Haunted House was designed by John Osborne, with artwork by Terry Doerzaph.

    High Speed

    • Manufacturer: Williams

    • Machine Type: Solid state
    High Speed is a 1986 pinball game designed by Steve Ritchie and released by Williams Electronics. This game was based on Ritchie's real-life police chase inside a 1979 Porsche 928. He was finally caught in Lodi, CA on Interstate 5 and accused of speeding at 146 mph.. During its design, High Speed was jokingly called "High Cost" by some rival Williams designers due to its then-high production cost. The advances in the mechanical design that went into High Speed, coupled with the machine's popularity, led to many machines being kept in service much longer than was previously the norm. The play surfaces of the machine were not initially given as much attention, leading to many High Speed machines seeing service to this day in extremely worn condition. Williams rapidly addressed this issue by making mylar playfield covers available and later adding hard clear paint coats to their playfields. Canadian specialist Classic Playfield Reproductions is currently working on an officially licensed High Speed 14-color Reproduction Playfield, which is due for release in 2013. The game was noted for the following firsts: High Speed sold 17,080 units. High Speed was one of the games (along with

    • Manufacturer: Sega
    • Designer: Joe Balcer
    • Machine Type: Solid state

You can start a game in "League" mode by holding the left flipper button in while starting a game, and "Wizard" mode by holding the right flipper button in. There are 9 Missions; after doing all of them, Master Alarm is lit at the right saucer. The Missions are: Once the 9 missions have finished, the wizard mode Master Alarm will start. It's a 40-second frenzy where every target scores 1 million and adds 1 million to a Jackpot that is lit at the Blastoff ramp. The Jackpot does not reset after collecting it, and does not have a limit. This round can be worth many points if the player has mastered the ramp shot.

    • Machine Type: Solid state
    Demolition Man is a Williams pinball machine released in February 1994. It is based on the motion picture of the same name. It is part of WMS' SuperPin line of widebody games. Sylvester Stallone (John Spartan) and Wesley Snipes (Simon Phoenix) provided custom speech for this game during ADR sessions at Warner Brothers Studios in Los Angeles under the direction of Jon Hey. Hey scored the music of the pinball game in part based upon the movie score by Academy Award winner Elliot Goldenthal, but including new music. This game is centered on multiball modes. The player has to shoot the left ramp when the "freeze" light is lit (lit by the right inlane) to "lock" a ball. When the required amount of locks are made, the player has to shoot the left loop to start multiball. Completing all four multiball modes lights the right ramp for the wizard award, Demolition Jackpot, which is the total amount of all the jackpots collected during the game. The Demolition Jackpot is lost if the ball drains. For pinball music aficionados, the Museum Multiball music is based upon Brahms' Second Symphony, 2nd Movement. The game's other main feature is the Cryo-Claw, which is located on the upper-left side

Although fully playable, the software has never been finished (rumours exist that the home machine of Matt Coriale features a complete version).

    • Machine Type: Solid state
    Baby Pac-Man is a hybrid arcade/pinball game produced by Bally Midway in 1982. The development of Baby Pac-Man was not authorized by Namco, rather, it was designed and released entirely by Bally-Midway, and along with Pac-Man Plus, Jr. Pac-Man, and Professor Pac-Man would eventually lead to Namco canceling their relationship with Bally-Midway. The hybrid cabinet consists of a 13-inch video screen seated above an elevated horizontal pinball game. 10,000 units were produced, making this one of the most rare Pac-Man sequels. As a hybrid game, Baby Pac-Man was divided into two distinct modes of play: Video and Pinball. Play begins on the video screen, where the player controls Baby Pac-Man through a maze. Play mechanics are similar to Pac-Man in that the object is to navigate the maze while gobbling dots and avoiding ghosts. In contrast to earlier games in the series, Baby Pac-Man's maze contains no energizers. Instead, there are two vertical chutes which, when navigated down, ends play on the video screen and transfers the player to pinball mode. The pinball section operates as a traditional pinball game in which the player hits targets with a metal ball using two button-operated

    • Manufacturer: Williams
    • Designer: Pat Lawlor
    No Good Gofers is a Williams pinball machine released in December 1997. It was Pat Lawlor's final design for Williams before their eventual closing in 1999. The game revolves around Buzz and Bud, two gofers who are reaking havoc on any and all golfers playing on their "turf". The gofers "pop-up" during gameplay to taunt the player, as well as provide entry ways to locks. No Good Gofers also has a "slam-ramp" feature which if used correctly, will award the player a "hole-in-one" shot. Performing this is tricky, as the ball must travel off the ramp, into the air, and into a very small hole located on the game's upper playfield. The "hole-in-one" shot is often called one of the greatest shots in pinball history.

    Doctor Who is a pinball machine designed by Bill Pfutzenreuter (Pfutz) and Barry Oursler, and released by Midway (under the Bally brand name) in September 1992. It is based on the television series of the same name. As stated in the Gameplay section, the rulesheet is rather different from other pinball machines released at the time, which didn't help popularity (and even now it is still seen as an exotic machine amongst collectors) as casual players did not understand the complex rule changes that occur during the game. The first 100 games included a moving Dalek topper that would turn side-to-side while the robot was speaking. The effect was achieved by fitting the robot's body with a complex motor, cam, and optoelectronics system. Its complexity and expense lead to it being cut from the production run. Production Dalek toppers can be made to move with "wobble head kits". Prototypes featured the old Bally-style backbox (and a totally different backglass), but this was changed to the Williams-styled one in order to cheapen the production process for both product lines. The basic gameplay is all about the various incarnations of Doctor Who (at the time, these were seven) and each

    Fish Tales is a 1992 pinball game released by Williams. It is one of the top 20 most produced pinball machines of all time, selling more than 13,000 units. The game's theme is fishing, with a general goal of catching as many fish and telling the biggest lies about their size possible. The machine's backglass is topped with a plastic fish that thrashes its tail when the player achieves certain goals, and the players launches balls with an autoplunger shaped like a fishing rod. Fish Tales introduced flippers with lightning bolts on them that were believed to be 1/8 inch shorter than other Williams flippers of the time. While seemingly minor, an extra 1/4 inch gap creates a far greater ball control challenge for the player. As such, this enhancement was only added to a few pinball titles before being abandoned. The machine's rules present the player with three main objectives: Other lesser objectives include: Scoring levels on Fish Tales are more geometric than on most games, meaning that the difference in scores between beginner and expert players is greater than it is on other machines. Replay levels on most machines tend to be in the mid 8-digit range, and most early awards in the

At the time of the goal, the player can then try to work the flippers to get the ball to go through the MIKE BOSSY lights or gates. When hit while lighted, these give the players extra bonus points. When a player makes eight goals, a special light goes on which means extra bonus points. Up to 180,000 bonus points can be made.

The goal of the game is to pick up five passengers: Pinbot, Gorbie, Lola (or Marilyn in the original version), Dracula, and Santa. The passengers are represented by lighted illustrations in the center of the lower end of the playfield. Collecting all five passengers lights the Jackpot, which is available for about ten seconds. Originally the machine featured a passenger named Marilyn, a blonde character in a red dress bearing a resemblance to Marilyn Monroe. WMS Industries replaced the Marilyn passenger with a new passenger named Lola due to legal problems with Marilyn Monroe likeness. Lola appears identical to Marilyn, with the exception of her hair; the Lola passenger is pictured with red hair where the Marilyn character was blonde. Today, versions of the table that feature Marilyn are said to be rare...however, the actual numbers of Marilyn vs Lola are not really concrete (many report seeing just as many Marilyn versions as Lola versions on location, in collector's homes and at conventions).

    Pin*Bot is a pinball machine released by Williams in October 1986. It was designed by Python Anghelo and Barry Oursler. In this pinball game, the player attempts to navigate throughout a representation of the solar system toward the Sun. The first planet is always Pluto. In order to move from planet to planet, the player must knock down three drop targets in quick succession, or hit a specially marked target when it is lit. Each planet reached gives you a 20,000 point bonus at the end of the ball. A bonus is achieved if the target planet is reached during game play, this planet is chosen at random at the start of each game. Another bonus is achieved at the end of the game when the player reaches the Sun. At the center of the playfield is a 5 by 5 grid. Lighting up the grid causes a visor to lift, revealing the robot's eye sockets. Lighting the grid can be done in one of two ways, either hitting the target corresponding to a linear array on the grid that cycles vertically left to right then horizontally from the bottom up. This can only be done on the first shot at the grid targets, if the shot is missed then the lights have to be lit individually with the grid targets. Locking the

    The Machine: Bride of Pin*Bot is a 1991 pinball game designed by Python Anghelo and John Trudeau (Dr. Flash), and released by Williams. It is the second game in the Pin*Bot series, and is the last game produced by Williams to use a segmented score display rather than a dot-matrix screen. (It is also one of the few pinball games produced that uses a variable-brightness segmented display).) The primary plot of The Machine revolves around the eponymous female robot that makes up the majority of the playfield. The robot begins the game in a semi-completed state, requiring the player to activate her voice circuits and her eyes, then cause her to metamorphose into a human female. Each of these events occurs as the player makes shots up the left ramp to lock balls, and once metamorphosis occurs, a two-ball multiball mode begins. The Machine reverts to an incomplete robot when multiball ends. The left ramp feeds into two areas: A pachinko-style raised playfield similar to the one in Pin*Bot, which can drop the ball either back onto the main playfield or into the shooter lane; and an enclosed area containing a rotating box with The Machine's various facial states on each side.

    Barracora

    • Manufacturer: Williams
    Barracora is a 1981 pinball machine released by Williams Electronics. It was based on the Williams System 7 design which originally debuted with the Black Knight game. This pinball’s backglass Barracora is more or less a copy of the famous artist H. R. Giger’s painting ‘Li I’ from 1974. Giger is very famous for his design in the science fiction horror movie ‘Alien 1979’ directed by Ridley Scott. Among the games elements are two banks of drop targets, including a three-target set (B, A, and RR) and a five-target set (A, C, O, R, A). The most common story of Barracora's strange name is that original plans to name the game Barracuda (in keeping with its semi-aquatic artwork) were blocked at the last minute by trademark concerns. Williams elected to avoid potential legal issues by renaming the game. With such short notice, only a relatively minor change could be made to the design and artwork without severely impacting the schedule. However, according to pinball designer Larry Demar: "The original name of the game was 'Las Vegas,' eventually becoming 'Jet Orbit,' then eventually becoming 'Barracora'. Going from eight letters in the original names to nine letters in "Barracora" forced

    Twilight Zone is a widebody pinball machine, designed by Pat Lawlor and based on the TV series of the same name. It was first released in 1993 by Midway (under the Bally label). This game is part of WMS' SuperPin line of widebody games alongside Star Trek: The Next Generation and Indiana Jones: The Pinball Adventure. Following the huge success of The Addams Family pinball game, Midway gave Lawlor full creative control over the design of his next game, and the result is what many pinball enthusiasts consider to be "the most complex pinball game ever designed". Among its noted features include a working gumball machine (which deposits balls), a working analog clock (used as a timer for various modes), the Powerfield (a small separate play field where the ball is propelled by magnets rather than flippers), and the "Powerball", a white ceramic ball which is lighter than a regular steel ball and is non-magnetic. In addition to adapting the theme music from the original TV show, the game's main background music is an interpretation of the 1982 hit "Twilight Zone", by Golden Earring.

    FunHouse

    • Manufacturer: Williams
    • Designer: Pat Lawlor
    • Machine Type: Solid state
    FunHouse is a pinball game designed by Pat Lawlor. It was released in 1990 by Williams Electronics. As its title suggests, the game is themed after the concept of a funhouse, a walk-through amusement park featuring many attractions. FunHouse features a talking doll head located near the upper-right corner of the playfield. The head, named Rudy, responds in real time to events in the game, including informing the player of special bonuses, taunting and heckling the player, and appearing to follow the ball with its eyes when certain targets are hit. Rudy is voiced by Ed Boon, and the technology behind Rudy's facial movements was dubbed "Pin-Mation" by Williams. The game's overall theme is that of a funhouse, with the player taking on the role of a visitor to see its attractions. The overall goal of the game is to advance the "game time" to midnight and cause the FunHouse to close, allowing the player to start multiball mode. A secondary goal of the game is to complete the "Mystery Mirror" by lighting all of its modes, starting "Super Frenzy" mode. The game is over when the player has lost all balls, including any extra balls earned. Every target and ramp has a name and function

    South Park

    • Manufacturer: Sega
    • Machine Type: Solid state
    South Park is a 1998 pinball game released by Sega. It is based on the Adult animated TV series of the same name. This game was Sega's last pinball game; production would be continued by Stern Pinball, the successor to Sega Pinball. The amount of coarse language depends on the machine's language rating. If the language switch is on PG-13, the game will use mild language (and like the show, all strong expletives are bleeped out). When the machine has the language rating is on G, the language will be watered down, so it can be acceptable for family-friendly places (i.e. When the "Kill Kenny" Hurry Up mode is successfully completed, Kyle will say "rats" instead of shouting "you bastards!"). The family mode will also alter the match sequence which features Terrance & Phillip belching instead of farting. The prototype ROM set for the game had all expletives unbleeped.

    Stargate

    • Manufacturer: Gottlieb
    • Designer: Jon Norris
    • Machine Type: Solid state
    Stargate is a 1995 pinball game, designed by Ray Tanzer and Jon Norris and released by Gottlieb. The game is based on the film Stargate, not the television show Stargate SG-1. It has many modes, including several multi-ball modes. A "pyramid" is the main feature of this game. It has a top that opens by raising and lowering. A moving "Glidercraft" ship will be extended from the pyramid when the pyramid is open. The "Glidercraft" will zigzag left-right, in front of the pyramid, with about 90 degrees of horizontal movement. This game also features two "Horus" targets. These are basically the reverse of drop targets: they are targets that, rather than dropping down into the playfield when hit, rise up into the air. Each target is attached to a large "Horus" structure, which is itself attached to a pivot that can raise and lower. These Horus structures drop down to block the player from reaching two key shots. The game occasionally raises them, allowing the player to temporarily make the shots. Part of the development involved having actor James Spader record the voice parts of Daniel Jackson.

There are 4 modes in this game, with a Mystery Mode for completing them. Start a mode by completing 1-2-3 on the ramps. All three shots may not be on the same ramp so look for the lights, and watch to see which flipper the ball goes to. The modes are displayed in a line on the playfield. Lit ones have been played, the flashing one will be started next, and dark ones are yet to be played. Modes can run concurrently, and during multiball. The bumpers change the currently flashing mode. The modes are: Once all the modes are completed, the Start Mode light will indicate Mystery Mode, a wizard mode where you

    The Lord of the Rings

    • Manufacturer: Stern
    The Lord of the Rings is a 2003 pinball game designed by George Gomez and distributed by Stern Pinball. It is based on the The Lord of the Rings film trilogy, which was first released in 2001. It features the highest possible score multiplier in pinball to date: During a combined "Two Towers" and "Gollum" Multiball it is possible to achieve a 84x Jackpot (when scoring seven subsequent combo Jackpot shots, having the 2x scoring Elf gift and the Sméagol phase of Gollum Multiball running at once)! The main objective of the game is to light and start three multiballs, each of them coupled to one of the movies of the trilogy, and to finally "Destroy the Ring": Note: Multiball features are more difficult to start based on settings and subsequent triggers. For example, Fellowship multiball on Hard may only be triggered via Barad-Dûr while on easy all three shots are open to initiate the feature. Another example is during Two Towers, a player may score and stack cumulative sword locks during the initial trigger. During the second trigger, K-E-E-P remain lit until the sword lock has been awarded. During the third trigger, K-E-E-P letters turn on AND off when toggled while trying to lock the
