Normally I can only manage to increase the multiplier to x2 on the final ball, but this game I increased it to x3 on the first ball and then x2 on the second. This required more games than I though I could take. The sound is grating between games and the ball physics is really bad. Still, it's pinball.

The SG-1000 game out in Japan on the same day that the Famicom did. The Famicom became the NES. The SG-1000 became the SMS. And then the system was relaunched as the SMS in Japan, but it's somewhat rare.

Wait, the SMS and the SG-1000 are pretty much one and the same, AND they came out on the same day in Japan? Wow!

And the SG-1000 and the SMS are pretty much one and the same? Then why are they classified as two different consoles? Is it like the NES and the Famicom Disk System?

The Japanese SMS is basically a redisgned SG-1000 II, but with the card catcher, 3D hardware, and Rapid Fire built in to the console.

I believe that it was the original SG-1000 and Famicom that came out on the same day in Japan. The SG-1000 II was redesigned into the SMS, which was released in Japan sometime later. The Japanese SMS is somewhat rare, even in Japan. I've seen them go for $2,000 on eBay although I bought mine from a seller in Japan for around $300 plus another $80 or so for shipping.

The Japanese SMS is fully compatible with games for the SG-1000, SG-1000 II, Mark III, and the ultra rare Othello Multivision licensed clone.
