Søren Worre of Dots and Loops provides a very well made analysis of the pinball component players love to hate — the TILT mechanism.

Includes analysis of the configuration of the TILT bob to properly govern play, a perspective on what can cause the dreaded Phantom TILT and opinions on the ultimate pinball killjoy, the Slam TILT.

Be sure to stay tuned for the simple modification that aims to prevent competitors from having to wait for the TILT bob to settle down for extended period of time, after an aggressive move by themselves, or another player.
