@Mark:

I used to play this loads back in the days and I'm a bit surprised how I still remember the swing of it today! I believe I only got a decent score as this game became kind of engrained in my genes. wink I'm usually rubbish with getting into new pinball games. I bet as a pinball expert and with some practise you can beat this! Try it out! smiley

I'm an uneven Pinball player. I can have an amazing score and an awful one, played on the same table no less. Sometimes on the same day. Go figure.

I have noticed that my scores on The Pinball Arcade (Steam) for EM tables tend to be much better in comparison to other players than is the case with the newer Solid State tables. For example my score on the Steam leaderboard for Attack from Mars is over 18 Billion points (Ranked 63rd), whereas I'm currectly Ranked #13 (if I remember correctly) on the much older Spanish Eyes.

That sounds interesting! I don't know a great variety of pinball games or machines. I loved the Video Pinball on Atari 2600 and later I also played a few pinball machines regularly. Unfortunately most of them disappeared from the pubs and we don't have a lot of pinall places in Germany (well at least not in this neck of the woods). I used to regularly play Theatre of Magic, Data East Star Wars, Addams Family and Medieval Madness. Now here on Highscore I see a huge variety of great pinball machines I'm not familiar with, which I find really interesting!

@RetroRob: For rolled scores on VCS video pinball, my own recommendation is to record your entire gameplay video (more effective evidence at my own discretion). You got CLOSER to roll your score on this VCS game.

@oyamafamily: Thanks Oyama! I was thinking about getting into this! However I don't have recording equipment and I'm not familiar with YouTube yet.
