Survey time again
This time I want to know ?What is your favorite unconventional game?

It looks kind of like a pinball
It is made by the same people who make pinball
But it is not like any other pinball machine you have ever played

Examples;
Hyperball (http://www.ipdb.org/showpic.pl?id=3169&picno=5997), use a rotating turret to shot at various targets

Hercules (http://www.ipdb.org/showpic.pl?id=1155&picno=1129), Just like a pinball, only bigger

Orbitor 1 (http://www.ipdb.org/showpic.pl?id=1725&picno=3195), who needs a flat playfield anyway

Hi-Score Pool (http://www.ipdb.org/showpic.pl?id=1161&picno=19267), I have played it, but I cannot describe


Over to you :D

For me, Hyperball is awesome and quite different for its era!
I also really enjoyed playing Ice Cold Beer, but being made by Taito, doesn't fit the category.

Thinking outside the box on a Sunday morning :)

Though not truly unconventional, it would be to all the pinball guys on this forum.

Would vote for pinballs without flippers. Just about finished a United Tropicana from 1948 and think of all the people that would of played this game 60+ years ago.

Will be interested to see peoples reactions at my meet in September :)

I have only seen a few flipperless/early flipper machines
the main reaction is that they are so small
