THE GAME PLAY

When the entire bank of drop targets are knocked down, either a special or an extra ball is acheived.

RATING

This is a drop target machine.

Playfield is a Symmetrical layout with a bank of 10 drop targets as the main feature.  Has Four flippers, two

upper and two lower. The unusual part of the playfield is the two pop bumpers placed just above and outside

the lower flippers. This provides some fast, and sometimes frustrating action.


Here is a short video by Rod of the bottom bumpers in action

This game has a huge "fun factor" - much the same as King Pin. Gottlieb loved their drop targets ! Great restoration - Beautiful machine  ^^^

Agreed, the layout (aside from the pop bumper position) is very much the same as King Pin.

What a great looking machine. Fantastic bg. Looks like fun to just flip around and not worry about completing too many rules although I bet the heart races a little trying to get that last target for special
Still loving my Metallica Premium
