    It's Happy Hour! Big Bangs for everyone! Bally The Party Zone Tips & Strategy Guide

    In this game on Bally The Party Zone in Pinball FX3 on Classic Arcade (with some comparison with Classic Single Player), I explain how to play safer while aiming to maximise your scoring potential.*



    I ended up the enjoying the table a lot more than I initially thought I would and that is mostly to do with the table providing you with relatively basic but hard to master scoring opportunities. *It keeps on inviting you back for just one more go as you try to put the perfect game together to maximise your scoring opportunities.*

    I haven't put together the perfect game yet, but I'm happy for now, and will try again. *We know that Zen Studios will probably update the flipper physics and reduce the nudging strength in Classic Arcade which will give me good incentive to play it again.

    It is, as you have to kind a master the table up to a point that you can reach the wizard mode to get the achievement. It is the same for i.e. Attack from Mars and also Theatre of Magic. One thing you can be happy about though, is that on Pinball FX 2, the harder achievements required not only of you to start the wizard mode but to actually defeat it! The two most infamous ones for me are beating Ultimo on Iron Man, and Loki on Thor.

    Pinball FX is not the kind of game where you can get many of the achievements without actually understanding the table and knowing what you are doing.

    These guys, LUP's club, always have comprehensive table guides. Look in the description for time stamps to the different sections...

    I do tips and strategies for you to get to the wizard mode safely and efficiently but there are a few different ones that you can take a look at. Here I get the trophy...



    but I also get to the Battle for the Kingdom in my tips & strategy video which is what you need to do to get the trophy.

    Trolling the King of Payne! Williams Medieval Madness

    In this tips and strategy guide video for Williams Medieval Madness on Classic Arcade in Pinball FX3, I show and explain how you can go about to reach and hopefully complete the Battle for Kingdom wizard mode. I also show a few differences that you need to consider between playing Classic Single Player and Arcade.



    The differences between Classic Single Player and Classic Arcade is big on this table and require quite a big change in approach, the biggest of the Williams / Bally tables I have played so far. There is a key shot, the Castle lock, that is much easier to hit on Classic Single Player and because of that you have an easy multiball to access, that you can use to gain extra balls and to break down the castle doors in a safer manner.

    I really enjoy this table, but I also find it relentless on any missed shots in Classic Arcade. You can go from hero to zero in literally a few minutes. I’ll definitely play it again in future and have my eye on a much bigger score, but for now I’ll give it a rest and see what else is out there!

    Thank you, I try ;-). I've been playing Medieval Madness and the ball feels even faster on that... you blink and it's gone. I'm getting there and will hopefully have my top 10, my self imposed requirement, soon so that I can do a strategy video on that.

    I know The Getaway is even faster (I've played it on Mac) so will see how I'll go on that.

    Williams physics has become my favorite, other tables seem like they are playing in slow motion, hard to go back.
    Thank you, glad you find it of use. I also find it hard to go back. So far I've only played Fantastic Four from the "old" tables on my XBox One and even though it was still fun, I basically only played through Wizard mode once and then stopped as I can't see myself playing for another couple of hours to put up a high score. White Water on Classic Single Player is still tough (the only one of the Williams tables where I gave it a good shot), but as you get better, the games will definitely also last a long time. My big hope is that all Zen's new originals will also come out with the Classic Arcade physics along with the Zen physics.

    Medieval Madness: The King of all Kingdoms... sort of

    I must admit, this table has been kicking my butt for the last couple of days. Anyway, there is hope especially as I could get the achievement.


    Yet again, Zen Studios was way too kind with the achievement in that you don’t have to beat the wizard mode but only start it… you aren’t actually the King of all Kingdoms because you haven’t beaten the King of Payne yet . I was only a shot or two away from doing so but alas, that has to wait for another game. Hopefully, I can put a top 10 game together rather sooner than later... wish me luck!

    This game was the first game where I kinda feel like I was more in control and if I can say so myself, my multiball play was topnotch. I’m still loosing too many balls that I should be able to save easily and my aim for the castle is horrible but I'll keep plugging away.

    Fact of the matter is that this table is just brilliant. It keeps me engaged the whole time even though there is not a heck of a lot happening compared to many other tables. You also need to have reactions like a cat because the ball literally zips around and the ricochets are not kind.

    Video games

    An important article, there is much to learn from it. I enjoy playing at Nettikasinot and Kasinobonukset and I also have a YouTube channel of my own and I upload fun video games there, you can visit the channel.

    Strategy video with commentary for Theatre of Magic on Classic Arcade(+Single Player)

    In this game where I got the 500 million bonus for the Grand Finale and made 6.3 Billion for a Top 5 score on Classic Arcade, I give commentary on the clear and successful strategy I followed.



    I based my strategy on the PAPA tutorial for the table, but had to adapt it as the FX3 table on Classic Arcade plays differently in certain ways. This table rewards patience and sticking to your strategy and each time I do well, I feel like I'm just one step away from getting a much bigger score. A hugely fun table and I can't wait to play it again when Zen implements their Volume 4 flipper physics on it.

    Junk Yard (Classic Arcade)-Start right to defeat Bob and score big! (with commentary)

    I just sneaked into the Classic Arcade top 10 with this game on Junk Yard. The strategy I used works great to set you up for defeating Crazy Bob and reaching a high score once you put a good game together.


    Thank you to the Pinball FX3 Discord channel members for the great discussion that helped me plan the strategy. It really works well, the only things missing for a much bigger score is my lack of precision and my unwillingness to spam the Save the Girl video mode.
