1999-01 Revenge From Mars 

Bally games speak for themselves. They are very popular and are highly collected.
Addams Family holds the world record for the most machines ever produced for a single title. A 2nd Gold collectors edition was produced 2 years later in 1994.

Alot of the later Bally games are known for having very pretty artwork and playfields. An upmarket design philosophy was used during this later period.
Mistakenly, alot of people believe Cactus Canyon was the last pinball title produced by Bally, but infact it was Revenge from Mars. This generally mistaken belief, has led people to pay crazy prices for Cactus Canyon which had dropped in price dramatically over the past 3 or 4 years.
Cactus Canyons production was stopped earlier than first predicted due to the Pin2000 production, leaving the code for the game to feel "unfinished" to alot of Cactus Canyon owners.
Generaly, half of the titles produced between 1995 and 1998 have held very high resale prices due to game production numbers being quite low pro-rata on alot of these games and the fact that Bally designed some great non licenced themes during this time.

I hope this list helps people remember the great games produced by Bally !  thumb
