Haven't played this one before, but I think I'm going to enjoy it. It looks like a good one to play with a few beers.

Not sure about the eyes on that Jack on the backglass though.....looks like he's one of the Children of the Damned!

Never played this in VP either, just had a bash - there is some wacky stuff going on with ball spin, some really weird bounces off the flipper, and almost no dead bounce at all.

 

300k is looking pretty high to me :lol

I think you're right. I've had a few games now and can't see myself getting close to a score like that in a hurry.

I don't know if it's me that's doing something wrong, but I found some issues during my plays today :

  • Even though the game says (on the sticker rule) that a draw is in fact a win for the player, it didn't trigger as a win for me
  • The 2x - 3x - 5x - Extra Ball on each win isn't working for me. I'm expecting to have 2x5000, or 5x5000, but I only get 1x5000. And I did get the extra ball bonus lighted on the top, and when winning the hand, I did not get my extra ball (which was a pity, as I was on my 210.000 play 😭

All in all, this is a great game, I'm not a fan of the pre-80's pins, but having a community that points it out and trying to beat some scores is motivating enough ;-)

I also thought I got the extra ball several times but never got it. As far as the draw thing - the F6 options has a section for that. Mine is set not to award a win - so I'm not sure what the "correct" setting should be since I don't bother reading the instructions as usual. The 2x, 3x, etc is for the bonus multiplier for the end of ball bonus.

I'll give it a try next week, I'll let you know.

Yes, but there is also a 2x 3x and 5x it the top right, next to extra ball. Imo it means that it doubles the 5000 wins of each "player win" hand. And it adds up also the multiplier for the end-of-ball bonus

375,710......things are looking up! Problem is, I got most of this on the first ball, then got too excited and screwed the next two up completely.

I don't know how you guys are smashing this table without EB's working properly. 3 balls is too few for this game. finding it a drain monster, not being able to bounce pass sucks the big one. Every time i play it I end up super annoyed :realmad:

I haven't had time to play yet. Hopefully I will soon so I can get frustrated at not being able to play well.
