Initial skill shot is achieved by dropping ball just behind theater. You’ll get whatever the lit insert is when your ball goes over the shooter lane switch. 1st successful skill shots scores 5000 points, subsequent skill shots increase points by 500.
After collecting a skill shot the ball will shoot around to upper flipper. If you hit the Scoop/SIM Card you’ll be awarded a Super Skill Shot. (Seemed like the ramp up there also gave a super skill shot but for lower value award? 1:00:24) First super skill shot awards ??? points, subsequent super skill shots increase points by ???.

Each completion of the B-O-B targets lights the kickback. Stacking of kickbacks is not available by default.
Every 3 completions of the B-O-B targets will light Crazy Bob’s. You can stack up the 3 of these and they are remembered from ball to ball.

Combos are available by linking together ramp shots and ???. The scoring builds as you keep a combo going and then resets if there is a break. 1st combo value is 500, 2nd is 600, …
Cumulative values from combos are applied during the bonus and that value can be held from one ball to the next by a skill shot.
The white inserts blink to indicate possible shots for continuing the combo.
Extra Ball will light at the trap door after 25 and 100 combos.
Theater Hurry Up
- Tickets will qualify and increase the hurry up value

10k+ Hurry Up (Left Ramp… adds 1k each subsequent shot (per ball?))
- Left Ramp… adds 1k each subsequent shot (per ball?)

- Successful collections increment the value (per ball?)

Quantum Theatre Collections
Kilowatts, Spiders, Drones, and Transit points can be collected at the theatre whenever their associated image is displayed. Lighting the associated image and increasing values of the award occurs by hitting specific shots.
- Kilowatts are increased by hitting QED. The associated image is a tank with a lightning bolt on it.
- Spiders are increased by hitting the Spider target. The associated image is a Spider.
- Drones are increased by hitting the Drone target. The associated image is a Drone.
- Transits are increased by hitting any ramp. The associated image is an animation as if you driving a train down the train tracks.
For all of the above repeated hits prior to collection will increase their respective value and hold it until collected or increased yet again. After collection does the value reset or is maintained? At end of ball the built up value will be lost (unless Hold XXX was obtained).
Collecting the award you desire can sometimes be difficult as it is so easy to hit one of the other award targets before you hit the theatre. (I don’t know if you can use the flippers to cycle through what is lit for collect?)
Note: Cumulative values of collected kilowatts, spiders, drones, and transits are applied during the bonus. Additionally if you get Hold Kilowatts, Hold Spiders, Hold Drones, or Hold Transits then this bonus value will be held over to the next ball (does the build up value of each also hold?).
After collecting 3 Kilowatts you will start the Kilowatt Drops feature.
After collecting 3 Spiders you will start the Spider Spinner feature.
After collecting 3 Drones you will start Drone Captive Ball feature.
After collecting 3 Transits you will start the Train Bash feature.
This is a 30 second mode where a Drop Target is shown in the Theatre and hitting it will collect the Kilowatt Bonus.
This is a 30 second mode where a Spinner is shown in the theatre and hitting it will ?collect the Spider Bonus? The spider standup also increases spinner value during this mode.
Drone Captive Ball
This is a 30 second mode where a Captive Ball is shown in the theatre and hitting it will collect the Drone Bonus.
This is a 30 second mode where a Door is shown in the theatre and hitting it will collect the Transit Bonus. (Every 3 hits opens the door to collect the bonus?)
Throughout the game you will collect 2 drone deliveries for every Drone Standup hit and 1 drone delivery for every Drone Rubber Switch hit. After collecting all 7 (or is it 8, i.e. one more past 7 fully lit lights) drone delivery lights you will receive a Drone Mystery award which can be collected at the Theatre and carries over from one ball to the next. Note: Settings can be changed to require Drone Standup target hit to collect but that is not the default.
Drone Mystery Awards
- 1,000 points
- Bumpers at Max
- Drone Combo Lit
- Extra Ball is Lit
- Kilowatt Value +1170
- Killowatt Value Held
- More tbd
When going through a lit inner left inlane for “Light Drone” you can collect a Drone Combo if you immediately hit the Drone Target.
What is a drone combo? What does it award?
How light the “Light Drone” inlane light?
Big Bang is lit by hitting the Light Big Bang targets enough times. The first time you light the Big Bang target it will require 3 Light Big Bang target hits. After that it will increment by 1 until you always require 6 Light Big Bang targets hits.
The award you get from Big Bang depends upon your game status:
- When not in a disaster mode you’ll receive Big points (50k first time and increments by 10k thereafter)
- When in a disaster mode it will complete the mode.
o Note: SIM Card Multipliers do not apply to the Big Bang shot but rather only the mode shots made prior to hitting Big Bang. In other words if you hit Big Bang at the start of the mode you’ll only get 1x mode value during bonus for that mode.
- When in Under Attack Multiball it will score all lit jackpots
Pro Tip: The above can be combined. For example when you are in both a mode and multiball you complete the mode and get all lit jackpots. When you are not in a mode and in multiball you get 50,000 points and all lit jackpots.
There are 11 Disaster Modes in this game. The modes and their status (unplayed (green), played but not completed (beige), and completed (maroon)) are shown on the screen as city blocks at many points during the game and in the status report. Additionally, there is a 12th “block” which, I assume, represents the Armageddon Wizard Mode.
Each mode is started at the phone scoop once it has been qualified. Qualification requires charging the phone. Hitting QED will charge quickly. Hitting the Phone Scoop will charge slowly. Note: Qualification requirements progressively increase as you play modes.
During a mode shots to the Phone Scoop will add time to the mode timer.
Collecting a Big Bang during a mode will automatically complete the mode; however, the points scored will be less and your mode multipliers won’t be applied to unmade shots.
If you complete a mode you will light a SIM card for collection at the SIM Card Scoop. Collecting SIM Cards is very beneficial as they multiply the points collected during subsequent completed modes. The multiplier is equal to the number of collected SIM Cards + 1. SIM Cards also define the size of the jackpots in Armageddon (by the same multiplier amount.)
Extra ball is lit after 3 disaster modes are played.
1. Alien Invasion
Shoot roving arrow, shot value 10k
Shoot lit shots, shot value 20k (all arrow shots)
Shoot theatre, shot value = 6,000 (hurry up that counts down)

Under Attack Multiball
After playing at least one disaster mode you must shoot both ramps to light lock and then lock a ball via the side ramp (or Crazy Bob’s for the first lock of the first multiball only).
Under Attack Multiball is started by shooting the phone scoop.
The first multiball can be started with just one ball locked. Subsequent may require additional balls to start. If you only have a few balls locked and want more you can defer the multiball by ???
Multiball – Jackpots lit in red – Left Orbit, Left Ramp, Theatre, Right Ramp. Side Ramp =2x Jackpot. After some number of jackpot are collected Super Jackpot available at QED (when he is moving).
Multiball – Phone scoop 3x = add-a-ball.
During multiball Dialed In Electronics will start attacking you from the Theatre and the Pop Bumper Target. The attacks are indicated by the lines of light that approach your flippers from those areas. If the attack makes it to your flipper it will be restricted for a brief period of time.
Note: If you use your real cell phone to connect to the game you can change the weather which makes the multiball easier somehow?
8 SIM Cards are required to spell D-I-A-L-E-D-I-N and qualify the XXX Wizard mode.
SIM Cards are lit for collection after
- Completing disaster modes
- Completing requirements of quick multiballs
I’m not sure if anything happens should you collect >8 SIM cards.
If a lit SIM Card is not collected before end of ball the ability to collect the card is also lost (on default settings).
During a ball SIM Cards can be stacked for collection. It’s a bit confusing because only one blinking D-I-A-L-E-D-I-N light will blink; however, after collection the next light will begin blinking immediately.
Qualified by playing all 11 disaster modes.
Started by shooting the phone scoop.
• Lit Arrows Award Jackpot
• Super Jackpot via Phone or SIM Card
• 8 Modes completed = 9x Jackpot Value
- Qualified by collecting 8 SIM Cards (i.e. spelling D-I-A-L-E-D-I-N)
- Started by shooting the Theatre.
- The display changes to show two health meters. One is “You” the other is “D.I.E.”
- Then a multiball with unlimited ball saves until one of you is defeated.
- During this showdown the Left Orbit, Left Ramp. Theatre, Right Ramp, and Side Ramp are all lit with red colored arrows for jackpot. Hitting these will cause DIE to lose health.
- YOU lose heath whenever you lose a ball.
- Additionally the theater and pop bumper attacks are fast and frequent to help DIE force you to lose balls.
- Should you defeat DIE the multiball will stop having a ball save (it will still linger for about 20 seconds) and any jackpot shots scored will count as victory laps until you are down to 1 ball.
