6,379,380.......Good nomination. Another one of those games where a few beers can come in handy, but I guess like darts or 8-ball, there's a fine line between "in the zone" and "down the shitter"!

Sweet Mary mother of Jesus just had the longest game on my machine since I owned it and to me what a score ...32,535,580

the timers get so short once you get a couple of extra balls the game starts to get really hard..

that’s it for me on this game.....let’s see the misses beat that 😀😂🤣

Fun, fun game, great nomination. Enjoyable multiball and clear goals. It's fast too

 

One N short of Delorean for the millions, got 2xEB but still a fair way to go to reach Mozz..

 

I'm really enjoying desktop pinball a lot more than i thought i would :)

Your correct the more you get Delorean the timer gets so fast you rarely get the millions.. also after 2extra balls it never lit again for me..

Enjoy playing the game but I’m done with it for a little while need to get some scores on other games..

Installed this table a while ago but never got the occasion to actually play it. Great theme, great mechanics, it makes me think I never watched the movies (shaaaaaaame)... Might give it a try, as I guess a lot references are in that Pin.

 

Nevertheless, 1st try and got 9.986.810.

 

Rules are still not fully known, so I assume I can still make some more progress later on.

 

Thanks for this submission

After a bit of a hiatus I am back. I missed out on having any sort of crack at Jungle Princess but I have a couple of days to have a go at Back to the Future and Alien Poker before I get shipped off back to work for a week.

Hopefully I can improve on this score, the standard is pretty high already

I'm still well down the pecking order with this score but I struggled to get this!! I keep missing the ramp at the critical times when I really need to hit it.

10792300 when a ball went missing during a multi ball. It didn’t come out of the lock.

Getting used to the steep angle flippers and using Solid state lettering as a guide. I like the randomness of the clicker tower awards that is moved by the spinner. When the game kicks with millions and multiballs it gets the blood pumping. I like it.
