    Fathom was released by Gottlieb in 1981 and is a 1-4 player Solid State display pinball machine.

    Design by: Ward Pemberton
    Art by: Greg Freres
    Notes: Unlike other Bally electronic pinball games, their documentation for this game shows the model number only as 1233, not 1233-E.
    We asked artist Kevin O'Connor to clarify for us if he contributed to any artwork for this game. He replies:
    The only work I recall doing on Fathom was the design and art for the brochure which we created to look like a page out of a comic book. Greg Freres was the lead artist and I believe handled all the graphics for the game.

                I just tried the VPX version in the link on this thread and got this score. I don't like it as much as my old version. Its completely different to the one I have been playing. This new version doesn't feel as authentic to me. The flippers aren't very old style Bally like, they are much more like modern feeling. Also the out lanes seem to play up and drain when the ball goes down the outside lane when it should feed onto the flipper. Also you can save the ball from going down the inside out lane easier on this version.
                I see there is a vintage mod on VPForums, I might try it. Click image for larger version

                  I really need to revisit the rules/points on this one, can't remember where I should be shooting.

                      Most of the points where on the first ball, only just beat my PB, set the last time this came up in the league. Don't think I've played it since.

                      This is one of the few tables I've enjoyed this comp.
