Quickie Version:

Side saucers all day.

Go-to Flipper:

Balanced

Risk Index:

Very High; get the ball as far up on the playfield as possible at all times!

Skillshot(s):

Et a top lane you don’t already have; best to get the center one first.

Full Rules:

Each top lane lights the bumper most directly aligned under it; you may be able to get an up and down the lane kick off of the center bumper. Nudging is very important on this game, and it’s almost a total luck box with a tight tilt. Balls easily fall into the drain channels outside of the flippers. When t h e ball is in the lower slingshot area, nudge the game frequently but only as hard as necessary to get the ball to arc to where you can flip at it. Most flips should be aimed just outside the bumpers towards the side saucers. These are worth 100, 200 if lit. That’s where the points are on this game. Flipping into the center of the bumpers is sometimes possible or necessary, since there’s no way to cradle the ball on this game. If so, try to nudge the bumper rebounds either up top or towards those side saucers. Key feeds: the two pairs of mid-machine side lanes. The outer lanes’ exits should safely head towards a flipper for an immediate shot. The inner lanes often feed the outlanes behind the flippers, so there’s a good chance you’ll need to nudge the game when the ball goes through either of these to avoid draining.
