This Indiana Jones pinball game
might be as legendary as the Indy films as it
is known as one of the best pinball machines ever
created based on a film. And this might be one
of the most complex pinball games ever created
When it was released in 1993, this
Indiana Jones pinball had the most modes of any
pinball game ever created. It actually has 16
modes to complete before reaching the final Wizard
mode! This pinball is packed with so much stuff
that it uses every circuit available on the WPC
pinball system. (WPC was the standard platform
for every Williams
pinball machine created during most of the 90's.)
The game also has two World War II planes on the
playfield. But one of the best features of game
has to be the user controllable, tilting upper
playfield that allows you to move the playfield
left and right, guiding the ball through the maze
to obtain a great multiball.
This is also the only pinball game
ever created that incorporates 3 video modes.
Each video mode is completely different:
1: A gunfight at the raven bar -
move a crosshair left and right over the
screen trying to shoot the bad guys.
2: Escape in the mine cart - Move the
mine cart left and right through the tunnels,
steering for the open tunnels and avoiding
the closed ones.
3: Choose wisely - Several glasses
are shown on the display, one of which the
player must follow while the glasses get shuffled
for a couple of seconds. Choose the right
And when it comes to sound effects,
this Indiana Jones pinball incorporates some of
the coolest voices and sounds featuring Harrison
Ford, Sean Connery, Short Round and many more!
Thanks to Williams
DCS sound system, Indiana Jones was also the first
pinball to use a digital stereo sound system.
With it's wide body design, this
pinball has wonderful ball flow, and is incredibly
tough to master if you're looking for a game that's
tough to conquer. This machine has always been
a "must have" for Indiana Jones as well
as general pinball collectors.
