                Had a crazy lucky 3rd ball, just kept going and going, hit the 1k spinner a tonne and 3 multiball sessions. Good times.

                  From what I remember, getting the multball, accruing time or extra bonus and the right outlane/lower drop targets double said extras.

                  Edit
                  Yeah looks like I rem it correct

                      599,610 ..... Just when you thought that there was nothing more frustrating than Paragon! I've never seen outlanes so freaking hungry! Thank god I don't have to pay real money to play this one cause I would have broken the bank on this one so far.

                        401940 is it only my table that feels like that this table dishes ups some serious over spin. This game has a serious a zooter and leg break and I can’t pick the flipper or the googly. I feel like Dale Callaghan facing Shane Warne. gotta love that crazy motion. think it’s because of the 0 inclination. Any spin results in some sideways movement,over spin or back spin. I like the game concept but i haven’t worked out how the two head sea monster is related to the game play.

                              413120 I like the game play. Old school and very retro. I Agree with you crackers the left lock is tricky and PPL Bob that the right lane is like a vacuum cleaner. The lower playfield flipper angle seems to hang low which I’m not a fan of. Not sure if anyone has played the wide body machine and if the flippers were like that on the mechanical machine. I like the top playfield spinner it’s fun to spin that lit at 1000 pointsClick image for larger version
