Been looking for an excuse to play this as a mate of mine still holds the Grand Champion on my cab. Will have a crack later.

There is a couple different version of this table and I think they both play very differently.

There is Hannibal's version, and there is Tom Tower's version which is more recent, has better 3D toys.

TT's version to me seems to play easier, like some of his other tables it is very forgiving, long ball times.

Skids call but previously it was any available version. For what it's worth, I'm using the Tom Tower version which can be found on the Monster Bash website.

anyone else getting a stuck ball on this version ? Looks like it gets stuck under the playfield, below and to the right of the Mummy toy, near the 'G'

I lost a couple balls like this, could not tilt them out, had to add a ball to the trough just to end the ball/game.

I have had it before, but not in the games I've played for this comp.

acejas
18th October 2017, 11:47 PM
try and get as many monsters ready to go on the next shot then get frakenstein = multiball = stopped timers. also middle spinner adds to your monster bash jackpot. I cant get past 400k...need practice but calling it quits for the night. Edy can give some tips.

BTW I have the phantom wireless logitech keyboard error :(

Monster Bash, Monsters of Rock are where the points are.
2nd time round is where they really build up.
Prepare to play for some time.

Think STTNG and Final Frontier, but with a 0 missing.

had a better run at it tonight but it took me a long time to get to a billion. Couple of extra balls helped, had a huge bonus built up on frank that I failed miserably to collect on...

Bet it's heaps harder, most virtual a lot easier than the real thing.

I played Attack from Mars at Pinfest and had a shocker on it :( But the virtual AFM is a longplay..

23rd October 2017, 11:34 AM
I play it often and one of my fav games. In RL you can REALLY suck as it can be a drainer but then games you can go forever. Missed shots IMO are fatal and the ball drains in outlanes. I dont usually take artwork into consideration but I think the theme and artwork is 100%. The rules are simple but the challenge is to accomplish it. I was peeved at this as I could never get MOR twice! and I should have got 1+ billion. When playing comp - the whole strategy of game play changes.

Youre right though Jed VP plays easier but I found on newer 90's + pinnies. EM's and solid states (most times) play harder I reckon

JustAnotherRat
23rd October 2017, 11:55 AM
I've seen a few people play AFM who make it long play... I was lucky enough to have a few games of it at Pinfest and the first game was a shocker but improved each game as I got the feel for the real thing but I would say that the shots are tighter.

I agree that many tables play easier in Virtual, but I'm OK with that... I hate the games in virtual that play heaps harder than the real thing... that shits me. Funhouse (VPX) was one of those, I'm not sure if the later version(s) are any better but when it was released it looked fantastic but played so hard.

True, a lot also depends on the author as well. With VP you don't have to put up with weak flippers, targets that wont go down, etc, so that makes them a little easier. Abra Ca Dabra I found heaps harder in real life, so too Joker Poker!

Also with VP10, there is some wacky ball spin sometimes, that you don't see on real games!

speaking of tiny flippers, I had never played a real capersville until pinfest, that gets my vote as world's hardest pinball machine !!!!
