Roberts Favourite Machines
Attack from Mars – Robert’s favorite game is a pinball machine created in 1995 by game developer Midway. The game was conceptualized by legendary designer and programmer Brian Eddy. In this game, Martians invade Earth, and it is up to the player to destroy the Martian fleet, save all the major cities, and then head off to Mars to destroy the Martian empire and planet Mars. Robert states that the dancing martian figures are what makes this game his favorite and this is the machine in which he won the 2016 World Championship.
Lord Of The Rings – is a pinball machine game designed by George Gomez in 2003. The game is distributed by Stern Pinball. It is based on the The Lord of the Rings film trilogy, which was first released in 2001. It features the highest possible score multiplier in pinball to date which Robert has used multiple times to score in the billions. He says the thing he loves the most about this game is the music and soundtrack which “is just the most beautiful.”
Metallica – this pinball game was designed in 2013 and distributed by Stern pinball. This homage to the rock band Metallica has already become a favorite in Robert’s game room. The machine features 12 classic tracks from the legendary group that he says is essential in keeping up the energy to play the game. The gameplay is what draws him to the game the most, “Combos, it’s definitely combos, this game is all about combo-ing”.
Iron Maiden – the newest edition to Robert’s collection is another game based on a historic rock band. The Iron Maiden machine was designed and created last year by Stern Pinball. His favorite aspect of the game is not the gameplay but the beautiful artwork that drapes the cabinet.
X-Files – Nearly two decades old and considered a classic, the X-Files machine made by Sega is based on the hit Fox television series. Robert loves the cabinet of this machine because he is a big fan of the show, “You know what’s sweet about this game? The cabinet.”
Dirty Harry – The gun plunger that shoots the ball into play is the most distinguishable element of this pinball machine. It is also Robert’s most beloved characteristic of the game. It is based on the Clint Eastwood character and was released in 1995. Robert loves to shoot pinballs at targets, sinkholes, ramps, magnets in through loops the same Dirty Harry shoots at bad guys.
