CRAZY SHAMAN

I enjoy this machine, it has an offset color LCD next to the reels.

It has a jungle tribal theme, the jungle drums are fun during bonus round, and some reach's.

I would rate it 8 overall.

good memory! from ipdb: Black Knight' introduced 'Magna-Save' and the Bonus Ball concept where the player with the highest score won additional seconds of free play. Magna-Save was a feature where a user could press a button on either side and magnets would prevent the ball from draining via that ou...

I like the unique reels but I must admit this is not a great machine to eye shoot. The artwork on the machine is great, the reels have much etail in the background as if it was printed on an ancient map. the speaker covers are in the shape of the main characters, lamp man, moon man. the level of det...

Neo PlanetT was one of my first pachislo. It has the El Vision , amber LCD over the reels. It is a graphics display, for reach's and acts like another set of reels during a reach. It will foretell of replay's ,that kind of spoiled the illusion of chance for me back then. As with many Yamasa machines...

I have owned this machine for a few years now, it is nice with the large lcd over the reels, during reach's it acts like another set of reels so this might be considered a 6 reel machine? Mine has long slow periods and it gets boring during this time, there is not much going on but when a reach or b...

Chris wrote a very complete review almost a play guide. This is probably my favorite machine/s. I have had up to three of them at once, It sounds like you are in an American game show, the announcers voice , music and crowd sounds all fit the game show theme. During the spin luck bonus game the anno...

This is a basic machine, very often it is chosen for 'customization" by changing out the belly graphics. It has a special reach feature, the digislo, it is an LED on the right side that if 3 Automatic symbols are hit 3 consecutive times it will give a bonus round, a replay will keep the reach round ...

Wow it happened again! I had a rain day last week and just heard Twilight zone on the radio so I went in to play the machine, I needed to wipe the dust from the glass and wiggle the connectors to get it to play, these do not like to be left alone! I turned them on yesterday and the BOP had a broken ...

I was looking through IPDB.org database and found a couple of Video pinball machines one is made by Bifuca, of Murcia, Spain.

Yes the heat from incandescent lights is a significant factor. The Stellar Wars I just sold had warped plastic's from I assume was years of baking over a pair of hot little bulbs. Side note: LEDs are becoming popular for everyday home lighting. While the LED's produce little heat the circuits locate...

BOP Bride of Pinbot

Trouble always comes in three's I have heard. I fired up the BOP and the left flipper was not working. My W?D who ? Dunnit blows the main fuse at power up. Twilight Zone startup failure. I replaced the left flipper fuse in the BOP, (it is cool it has a fuse for each flipper) and it held and is back ...

dusted off and wiggled the connections

I am recovering from shoulder surgery and got bored on a rainy/sleet day. I had not played my Twilight Zone all summer and now most of the winter. It would not start, no lights no sound except a loud buzzing. It was hard to reach and I just played the Bride of Pinbot or head down to my gameroom if I...

I had to stop 'collecting' any more games, until I get a bigger room to put them all in.
The arcade machine is a working Stargate. I am going to keep it intact. If (when) I make a mame cabinet I will use it as a pattern.

Big Guns is a nice WMS pinball I owned one for awhile, the Mrs. did not care for it as much so we sold it. I like the Mame jukebox app! If I eve get a nice Mame built I would like to have a juke box built in also.
