    398,690 - thought I'd post an early one on this, just so that I can say that I was leading the tournament at some point other than after the first day of the first game. Now for the big slide down the ladder👇

      I thought, hey this game looks fun, then launched the first ball and tried to catch it on my flipper.... rolls away and drains... oh no, not one of them. It does seem pretty fun though.

      I played 5 or 6 games of this and my best score was around 300,000. I had one more game and decided to test the analogue v digital nudge thing and pulled out the keyboard to use button/digital nudge and this was the result. It makes it quite a bit easier in my mind.

            I get an options menu which pops up after each game. I find it difficult to get rid of. I looked in the script but found nothing

              I found if you enter on the Save and Exit option nothing happens, but if you scroll down one click past Save and Exit and enter, it will work and won't come back.

                      My Mrs really hates the noises on this one. Imagine if I had some chimes etc. She would have a meltdown

                          awesome, i've never played this EM.

                          Wish I had analogue nudge, so i could cheat.

                            I remember when you said desktop players had the advantage, Dedrok didn't agree with you though.

                              Big surprise, another EM i don't like.. I played a few games with super low scores till I bothered to check this and find out it should be on 5 ball.

                              The ball physics on the current 2 tables just feel way off to me. I just can't seem to get more than 1 maybe 2 good balls on this one. EB is a bitch to collect.
