Protect the Earth!
Stern’s 1979 Meteor pinball game was produced in conjunction with the movie Meteor by American International Pictures. The game came out as a promo for the movie which starred Sean Connery and Natalie Wood.
This game features three flippers, one pop bumper, two passive bumpers, two slingshots, three star rollovers, three 3-banks of drop targets, one spinning target and one standup target. Meteor also features one 6-bank of memory drop targets. These special drop targets are held in memory and restored prior to each player’s next ball. The bank then increases the bonus multiplier and activates other features.
The spinner is a variable value spinner: scoring increments increase and decline with Meteor target bank positions. Rocket bonus alignment is the key to wows and specials. The outhole scores rockets times the bonus multiple and the maximum bonus rewards player with total board visual display.
Like the movie which was Oscar-nominated in 1980 for best sound, Stern’s Meteor features a new-for-the-time audio system: the SB-300 sound board. Matching the growing tension of a gigantic meteor approaching Earth, the game’s background buildup sound leads players into the excitement.
This game was designed by Steve Kirk. Artists Leslie Kaip and Jorge Obregon drew their inspiration for the backglass and flyer from one of the movie’s advertising posters.

Gottlieb’s 1995 Shaq Attaq features four flippers, three multiballs, one ramp, two cannons, two captive balls, five drop-targets and a vari-target.

The player plays as Shaquille in qualifying Events and the Finals. Events include: the Tip-Off, HORSE, the Alley-Oop, the Shot Clock, and Shatter the Backboard. The Shaq Attaq Multiball allows players to rack up baskets, and spelling S-H-A-Q-U-I-L-L-E enables Slammin’ Jammin’ which builds up bonuses.
Shaq Attack is a fun game of pinball, complete with multiball and shooting baskets. Players can enjoy the challenges of the game’s harder goals and Hidden Features.

Come Ride Aboard the Lauren Belle
Maverick, the block-buster movie based upon the popular tv series, comes to life in this great pinball game by Data East/Sega. Players enter the First Annual All Rivers Poker Championship dealt by Bret Maverick, himself.
This pinball is beautifully themed, right down to the plunger handle shaped like poker chips. Adding to the decoration and feel of the game is a large 192×64 pixel dot matrix display (DMD) in backbox. Maverick was the last pinball machine produced by Data East, and the first pinball machine produced with the extra-large DMD.
Maverick is a very fun game in which players play both pinball and poker (or blackjack in the blackjack mini game). The game is loaded with features: three flippers, three pop bumpers, two slingshots, one VUK, one captive ball, two standup targets, and one Paddlewheel ball lock. For fast action, the game features two 5-bank drop targets, one 4-bank drop targets, and one 3-bank drop targets. That’s 17 total drop targets!
Player shoot the plentiful drop targets to complete poker hands. Hit the correct drop targets and win! Hit too many wrong targets and you’ll lose the hand. This makes Maverick a fun game for shooters.
Great animation and sound effects highlight this game. Maverick has both very fast play, when players are shooting drop targets and completing poker hands, and a brief medium play when the Lauren Belle is activated. Players will appreciate the breather before returning to the game’s fast pace, activating the 3-ball multiball, attempting the skill shot for the 4-ball multiball or aiming for a very challenging captive ball shot (under the Lauren Belle).
