The Blackout Pinball Machine is a sci-fi themed pinball game made in 1980 by Williams.

This game was designed by Claude Fernandez

The software was created by Paul Dussault

The artwork was done by Constantino MitchellJeanine Mitchell

This game must have had a popular layout as it was remade 3 times.  Rowamet’s ‘Heavy Metal’ and Taito do Brasil’s 1983 ‘Vortex’. A nearly identical layout was used on Williams’ 1982 ‘Warlok’.  Warlok had different scoring and is very rare.

The pictures shown are of the actual game being sold.
