Addams family
South Park
Haunted mansion

Anybody got a favorite?


I've had a South Park machine for nearly 13 years now. One of my favorite purchases ever!

Adams Family is definitely available to purchase and it plays really well, it's crazy how close these tables are to the real thing.

edit: also available for purchase are Twilight Zone, Fun House and Taxi just to name a few


I downloaded Pinball Arcade on my iPad and it seems like it hesitates a bit - not a lot, but enough to make it difficult. I am on the latest iOS release and just downloaded the game (v7.1.5)

Anyone else have an issue like this?

Simpsons Pinball Party. Played the hell out of that when I was a teenager.

Played the Dr. Who machine a lot in college. Just checked on prices and wow muy caro!
edit:
Never mind, the Addams Family is very very expensive. Holy cow!

Thanks to Mr. Rugby's advice to clear memory on my iPad, the response seems normal now!

Addams Family is a highly sought after machine and is one of the best pbm of all time. Whirlwind is probably just as good and a little easier on your wallet. "Return to your home"

I put so much time on the Addams Family machine at the arcade in high school. I had that game mastered!

I also have the app on my iPad and had gotten pretty good at Theater of Magic.

But if I could own one machine, it would be Cyclone.

I downloaded Star Wars Pinball for Wii U a couple years ago and I still play the Empire Strikes Back table. Never got into any of the other tables, but ESB is a lot of fun and there's so much about it to figure out. Anybody know if it's based on a real machine?
