The pictures shown are of the actual game you can own. It is not yet refurbished. And so, Please allow 1 to 2 months for refurbishing.
The shots are really fulfilling for some reason, despite the simple guidelines. The captive ball, the spinner, and the vari target are examples of critical shots that pay off if you make them, but the ultimate payout—an Olympic gold medal—comes from making them properly.
Before you drain, you need to gather all five gold medals. A fantastic, arcade-retro-sounding reward music plays each time you receive a medal. By striking into a saucer on the right, you can re-light medal shots on the left. Four pop bumpers are strategically placed. The playfield arrangement was beautifully designed by the designer.
Bonus timer. You accumulate a bonus for making specific shots, similar to a few other video games from the time. When you lose your ball, a column of playfield inserts and sound effects let you see and hear the bonus tally count down. It’s really neat.
