"AS LONG AS PEOPLE LIKE TO PLAY IT, WE'RE GOING TO KEEP IT FIXED." -- TOM HINTENACH, CRABTOWNE USA

But then, along came Atari

Middle_Earth_back

Flipperspiel Wunderland with some comments on the uniqueness of Atari pinball games and their short run in the pinball industry. I’ve never played Middle Earth so I’ve got to look for that next time I am at PAPA. However, I have played Airborne Avenger and Superman.

Superman is a serviceable game, and I had some fun playing it at The Pinball Wizard Arcade in Pelham, New Hampshire.

Hercules? Well, that’s another story. Hercules! Hercules! Hercules!

Airborne Avenger on the other hand, I will simply say screw that entire captive ball area and the backglass sucks. Plus, the ball always seems to find that open lane to the drain even when I’ve opened the gate.
