Recent Stern effort, I suppose probably meant to coincide with the recent Indy sequel. Didn't much care for this one despite the solid construction because the left side is dominated by two rather annoying traps; one in particular waits an unusually long time before spitting the ball back, and this just destroys my nerves.

2008--incorporates elements of the four Indy movies to that point, including Lebeouf on the backglass. The thin steel playfield elements make it feel rather spacious. Kept hitting the odd magnetic slingshot in the middle right, which can really whiz the ball back at you at an unpredictable angle.
Was hitting the left outlane an awful lot and would have been pretty cool on the whole affair--and those trap spitbacks really *are* nervewracking--if I hadn't somehow managed to trigger a five-ball multiball: a whole elevated shelf of balls opens and they just spill out at you all at once, which is kind of neat.
Lots of extremely low-res--almost indecipherable--digitized clips from the movies play at certain points in the DMD.

There's a center post in the center drain, which is something I always like to see. Not as safe as some, but will save you sometimes if you remember to let it.
