Comet pinball machine review!
When was the Comet pinball machine invented?
Its beginnings date back to June 1985, whose manufacturer was Williams Electronic Games. Game design was led by Barry Ousler, software Bill Pfutzenreuter, and artwork, Python Angelo. The theme of this pinball is based on happiness, the circus, the carnival, the fair and the roller coaster. Until today, how many units have been sold?
A total of just over 8,000 models, with an average value of between 1,300 and 1,500 dollars. Originally, this pinball range was not going to be called Comet, but “Riverview”. This is because in front of Williams’ main house, there was an amusement park that was called precisely that way (+info below). There was so much buzz about this, to the point that they were going to stop selling it, that Williams decided to call it the Comet
Another curious note was what Python Angelo revealed: Williams tried to insert the numbers 1986 in the rollover, alluding to the comet that passed very close to the earth that same year, and whose name is “Halley”. This name sounds familiar to you, right?
By the way, the name of this pinball was taken from the amusement park present in Chicago, and it was the first pinball machine in history to use a plot based on amusement parks, followed by the Cyclone and Hurricane pinball machine, in 1988 and 1991 respectively. The motto used in this pinball machine was: “1 is a million!”
