Pinball @ work

Filed under: Games, Other, Random — zhooibaal @ 12:13000000

My boss just recently added some pinball machines to his collection. When I started back in September last year he only had the Bally Viking and Bally Baby Pac-Man. Now he has a total of 10 machines and we are allowed to play on them during breaktimes.
Here is a list of which machines he has and links to them on IPDB (the Internet Pinball DataBase) and ofcourse a few pictures.

  1. Baby Pac-Man
  2. Viking
  3. Lethal Weapon 3
  4. Barb-Wire
  5. Terminator 2: Judgement Day
  6. 007: Goldeneye
  7. Roadshow
  8. No Fear
  9. Corvette
  10. Last Action Hero

Unfortunatly it’s not possible to have them running all at the same time and that is also the main reason why they’re not turned on in the pictures and the Baby Pac-Man machine is malfunctioning, the right flipper doesn’t work. Anyway, here are the pictures I took about 5 minutes ago.
Baby Pac-manViking + Lethal Weapon 3Barb-Wire + Terminator 2 + GoldeneyeRoadshow + No FearCorvette + Last Action Hero
From the left to the right these are the tables as mentioned above.

The Baby Pac-Man cabinet is actually the only one that isn’t a “pure” pinball machine, it features a slightly modified Pac-Man game with slightly different mazes than the original and bonusses like the special pills and cherries, bananas, extra lives and stuff like that can be activated using the pinball part below the screen. It features no plunger and no outlanes, instead it fires the ball from a kicker inbetween the flippers onto the playfield. It’s really a shame that it doesn’t work at the moment.
The Viking machine was the first my boss had and after that he bought his first real modern pinball machine, one featuring a dot-matrix screen instead of numeric displays for each player. Terminator 2 was that table and after that came the Lethal Weapon. The last 7 machines he got in one buy.
I don’t even want to know what the price of those things where, but one thing is certain: they are a lot of fun to play on every once in a while!

…End of line.
