Hey… I did it multiple times in our round. Do I get multiple hundos? :slight_smile: The left one was far more make-able then the right side. Getting the skill shot (timing the green light) is helpful in a tight game too. I actually got to complete a few objectives in the game and had to work the green flippers to select a challenge! I felt accomplished :smiley:


#65

well most of the games I saw being played in our set were on the order of 100-250 million being winning scores. I think I even saw @keefer with a sub 150 score?? Forget exactly. And in our match… ball 3, player was playing from behind at about 70 million I think and got the double your score award… leapfrogging at least 1, if not 2 other players. I think it’s crap that such an award is in a tournament game. We should no longer be scraping for games to fill the banks…

Interesting. When did you play it? I played it round 10. Maybe it was tired. Couldn’t make either on the fly from an inlane feed.


#67

Session 5. Didn’t say it was easy :smiley: The right side was like pure vertical… but the left side we got up there a few times. I think Rossi got up there once too in our game.


#68

Maybe you can show me over beers next year. Man that was frustrating.


#69

Sure! Look for the guys with solo cups and playing Dollar games… :smiley: :smiley:

I was just happy to see it working reasonably well. Those two games are unique and fun to play for a off the wall experience. At allentown this year they had Blackwater and Lost World right next to each other… that was sweet.

Hate: Motor Show (why, when given a CRT TV to work with, did they use the smallest and worst font possible? Also, I came to play pinball, not video games)


#71

Hey now. You have to be decent at pinball to get those sweet, sweet video games.

Hate: Slick Chick, especially a 4 points ball 1 T_T
Like: Surf and Safari, it is rare to play one you can nail ramps on both side!

Like: City Slicker (so fast, and the flipper by the saucer to slam the ball back at you)

Hate: Rocky & Bullwinkle (sure, just double that dude’s score, that’s cool)

Until I played this game, my favorite guitar riff in a game was the repeatable ramp in Police Force. I had no idea what I was missing. Only out of competition, I was able to roll this game on ball one, which I have never done on any other game of this era. Especially not on the first day I ever played it.

Dislike: City Slicker
The first game I played in round 1, I had never heard of it and couldn’t figure it out in time. It was just the beginning of many reminders that it’s really difficult to know every single game in a tournament like this one. That pop bumper at the top of the ramp is diabolical.

This was my first Pinburgh and I had a great time playing all the Good games, all the Bad games, but especially the Good Bad games. Thanks to everyone involved for the great event.
