New Pinball Dictionary: Tilt Bobble


Rock Fantasy at Middletown, NY

Tilt Bobble

A bobble-head figure fastened on the head of the game that serves as the game’s topper. When the player shakes and nudges the game, it causes the bobble-head to shake as well.

A player can use the tilt bobble to make a guess as to how much the actual tilt bob is moving after a nudge or a shake. Also, when a player tilts the game or shakes it violently, the following player can use the tilt bobble as a reason to wait before plunging the ball.

Example: “I’m not shooting the ball until the tilt bobble stops shaking.”
