Size does matter

Pinballz recently rolled out is allegedly the largest machine ever made for commercial use. Of call companies to manufacture Hercules, it was Atari who tried their hand at pinball in the late Seventies to early Eighties. They weren’t very good machines in my opinion. The only other model I’ve played was Superman, made as a tie-in with the 1978 Richard Donner movie.

However, I think this one’s novelty makes up for Atari’s common shortcomings. The flippers are wooden and it uses a cue ball. The latter changes the physics somewhat. Personally I notice the ball falling down the side drains less often.

It’s six tokens a game but I find this amusing. Any machine capable of making me feel like I’m a little kid playing with my dad at Zayres, killing time while mom shops, is a good experience.
