Knackers Rating - Addams Family Pinball

After a previous post about games I got to wondering about my favourite arcade games ever.

Released in 1992 this pinball was the best seller ever and with good reason.

This pinball had it all, great variety in shots, an awesome multi-ball, clear instructions on what to do next to maximise scores, automated flippers and most importantly humour.

I spent hours playing this game and if one still survives in a pub I go to I have to play it. Last time I played one was in the Rob Roy (when it was called that) years ago. While at Uni I put a large amount of Austudy into the machines in the Carlton area.

So my Knackers rating:

no knackers - shockingly bad
one knacker - as bad as hitler because he only had on ball
two knackers - normal and average
three knackers - above and beyond the normal
four knackers - incredible
five knackers - as rare as five testicles

4.96 out of 5.00. It would get 5 out of 5 if I had a machine of my own. But at around $7,000 they do not come cheap.

My pinball top 5 would be:

1. Addams Family
2. Terminator 2
3. Getaway
4. Hook
5. Rocky and Bullwinkle

notable mention to Lethal Weapon 3.

You forgot the Kiss and Playboy machines.. they were pretty fine too.
Sorry for the lack of blog. I am still trying to find my feet but should be on terra firma very soon.
Hope my DB is doing well...

I can honestly say I've never played a pinball game in my life. But if I were going to start now, I now know which ones to look for.

dam buster said...

MM - Kiss and Playboy are good games. Also Fishtales has to get a mention along with Twilight Zone but My top 5 is based on the games I liked to play a lot.

FL - Well I can teach you one day if you like?

Margarita Milonguita said...

I heart pinball machines. Can't get my head around video games.

dam buster said...

pinballs are easier to get started with. Videogames require a 14yr old and a large bottle of cola to get through.

Jayne said...

Lordy, I haven't played a pinnie machine since.....can't remember when!
They were the best, usually in the fish and greasies shop, waiting for the order to be cooked and the change (and whatever other 10/20 cent pieces Mum had spare) would go on the pinnies.
At least the pinnies were more entertaining than the pokies!

dam buster said...

Jayne - At least with pinballs there is an element of skill and not pure luck.

Digital memory,to me, is something that I seem to be unable to ever have enough of. It's as if megabytes and gigabytes have become an inseparable part of my day to day existence. Ever since I bought a Micro SD Card for my Nintendo DS flash card, I've been on the constant lookout for large memory at cheap prices. I feel like I'm going insane.

But maybe you could a little more in the way of content so
people could connect with it better. Youve got an awful lot of text for only having 1 or two pictures.
Maybe you could space it out better?

Keyword discovery is a fantastic tool to comprehend
a rough quote of online search engine percentage of traffic connected to a specific
keyword. For example, if I enter hanryu, it gives ms a chart showing me that there are more
yahoo individuals searching for for that specific niche term.
It is a great method if doing PPC projects to learn where
to concentrate on rather of just choosing google.
