If you ever see this pinball machine somewhere, run away screaming, because it is out to steal your money and make you vomit. You think I'm joking, but just play it safe, okay? The vertical section of the machine has this big revolving picture in the middle of it, which spins faster or slower at certain intervals. Why, I don't know--inducing nausea is the only purpose I can think of for such a device.
Keeping ones eyes firmly down on the table itself then, you find various other unpleasant things. There was a digital circus barker heckling me the whole time from the yellow video screen. Bastard. The table is big and chock full of plastic doo-dads. The best part is when you shoot the ball straight up and it hits this plastic shelf that's in the middle of the table for some odd reason, and bounces up off the table, catches some air, and comes thunking back down to the flippers. Some would call this horrible table design. I'm one of those people.
The spring-loaded lauching rod was finicky and prone to just nudging the ball about an inch. The ramps seemed to resist entry, and rejoiced in shooting the ball back right down the middle of the table. I can't remember much else because the spinning wheel and the circus barker started to get to me, so I ran off.
