Themed on the Tommy movie from the musical or whatever about the pinball player (neither of which I have seen, though maybe it would help...), featuring a backglass with a trio of melon-breasted women, and a very yellow playfield. Really, there's no excuse for that much yellow in one place.
I'm no pinball wizard and I just can't figure out what to do with the left flipper. There's a ramp on the right side but it's one-way-only, down. There's a 5000 point button sort of pulled back in a hole, but it's hard to hit and leads to easy dead-drops. And that's all there is to hit with that flipper as far as I can see. Maybe I finally need to learn how to transfer the ball to the other flipper.
Lots of the right side is taken up by these weird flip flag things, and I guess they determine how the scoring works throughout the table. You don't hit them directly, they're fenced off, but somehow hitting certain things flips them and that in turn changes scoring? All I know for sure is that they're ugly and they take up a large and important part of the table that could be used for more entertaining things.
