  • All these Williams tables and still no Holy Grail where is Pinball Circus?!

    Instead of doing tables already created for pinball arcade why not Forge A New Path and do some ultra-rare tables that most people will never see in the wild. The first one I would recommend is the multi-level Pinball Circus! Infolinks and Youtube Video below!

    IPD IPDB Internet Pinball Machine Database Game Midway The Pinball Circus Flippers (7), Pop bumpers (4), Drop targets (3), Kick-out hole (1). No left outlane. Buy-In feature. The lower playfield has three flippers: two are offset and a third one rests vertically nearby, for flipping balls that drain from the Ring 3 playfield via the corkscrew habitrail. Flipping a ball on the lower playfield up the left center ramp delivers it to the Ring 2 playfield where its one flipper is used to flip the ball up a ramp to the elephant's trunk. The elephant then raises its head to roll the ball along its trunk to the habitrail behind it, routing the ball to the Ring 3 playfield. This playfield has one small flipper and a mini-slingshot kicker in place of a left flipper. A skillful shot up the rear ramp of this playfield delivers the ball to a magnetic ball lifter which elevates it to fall into the clown's playfield. Two small flippers on this final playfield are used to score the three drop targets and to score a jackpot behind them. After jackpot, the ball is returned via habitrail to the right flipper on the lower playfield. Pat McMahon Python Anghelo Scott Slomiany Eugene Geer Dan Forden Dan Lee Dan Forden

    Considering that part of Zen's process to recreate a William table is to disassemble a real machine, it would be difficult to reverse-engineer Pinball Circus...

    Regarding table selection, Zen has made comments that they do indeed plan to offer non-TPA tables also.

    Except for a very brief stint on my XB360 (I don't remember anything from it) via PBFX2, I don't have any experience playing TPA. Therefore, I welcome any & all tables that Zen brings to PBFX3.

      Yeah I'm hoping for a few non-TPA tables too. Some good ones would include Triple Strike (a classic), Fire!, Big Guns, Space Station, Jokerz, Demolition Man... Heck it's hard to find a table not worth doing - almost all are awesome!

        The table certainly looks fun enough to include. I mean, Zen has been putting out fantasy tables now for years that do all sorts of stuff so a multi-level pinball where the guy playing it even stated it's a one trick pony would likely entertain me for an hour then onto the next. Just dont see it as being the holy grail of pinball tables.
