Really nice table, plays great in VPX. Ignore the reel, it doesn't move on desktop, the score is on the masking tape down the bottom.

Had a top score of 489k on the VP9 version, VP10 is heaps more realistic and harder !

Definitely not my first go... this game is so brutal on you. but amazingly addictive, easily the best EM in vp10 they nailed this. the flippers are just the right amout of f*cked.

and my vote for best use of pop bumpers in any pinball, they can slay you or help you but you'll never know which.

get 1-2-3-4 to advance your bonus up to 5k.

then every lit drop you get scores that lit bonus.

get all targets down then hit center post to reset them.

Helps to get to 5k pretty quick then clear targets and reset them rest of the game.

Maybe we should set special to points ?

Also i had a bug in my table where you can't plunge the ball, it just never goes anywhere. If you let the ball sit too long in the chute without plunging it, it very slowly sinks downwards and gets stuck. You can push it with the plunger but never plunge it! I was trying to tilt it and tilted off my ball 4 for 0 points. heaps of tilts later it finally got loose and i could get it back and start ball 5.

I'm not finding the love you all appear to have, it just seems to be a hit the ball around and hope for points, even with the hints above I can't seem to better my first go. Maybe EMs are just not for me.

Most of the points are in getting the lit targets when you have the bonus maxed out.

Clear all targets then reset via center post and do it all again.

Simple goals for a simpler time, the 70's :)

Nope. Lit targets are worth the bonus value. Not the Centre target

When the targets reset, the centre target pays the lit bonus.
When specials lit it gives credit and turns off. Then pays 5000 when targets reset.
Getting the 1234 also pays the bonus.

You guys really need to pay attention.

Haha, I was trying to watch my score to see when points are added, but I think there is a lag on it clocking up, and I kept draining. I eventually worked out that it beeps per thousand. But I just don't see to be able to get the points.

Something about this game I just don't like, despite picking a goal the ball movement doesn't seem consistent enough for me, I just end up flicking the ball around and hoping the points come.

This version doesnít seem to pay the bonus when lit at the target when targets reset.
Hence the lower scores.
Maybe defender1980 can confirm on his machine.

Anyway

I didn't notice that, i have noticed the difference in the chimes as you can always hear the 1k chime sound for when you hit the lit target.

Yeag that would explain why the scores are under 200k and not up in the 300-400k region cause games can be quite long still even on this harder VP10 version.

I'm glad it's not just me going crazy...

I think I'm done with this table (famous last words)

I also noticed once the 100,000 is lit on the BG it doesn't reset when you play new games, so here a pic of BG and score ticket.

I have really enjoyed these two 70s tables that have come up I had none in the collection because I honestly thought they just looked two simple so will start grabbing a few more of the popular ones to add but had a great game earlier 256,570 vp9129840

311,260 - VP9 version

with the comp about to finish who's up for a vp9 challenge :)

this is a better game than the vp10 version. and not just cause it scores correctly but it plays better. once you readjust to vp9!

I love the simplicity of the things to do but still all the shots aren't dead simple.
Bishop83 EM's are great in vp and the early ss. for starters download Jack's Open, Joker Poker, Genie, Close Encounters. All great games.

That era is my fave in Pinball real and virtual.. cause i'm getting old :)
