Flash Gordon pinball machine review:
When was Flash Gordon’s pinball machine patented?
The idea of manufacturing this pinball machine was in 1980, specifically on May 13th. The first model that was sold to the market was produced months later, in February 1981. This pinball was patented by Bally. Did you know that it was the first machine with two playing fields by the manufacturer Bally?
In addition, nearly 10,000 units were sold and the average cost price was between $2,500 and $3,000. Also, it was the first model to incorporate a sound system called “Squawk and Talk”. The designers of this pinball were Claude Fernández and Kevin O’Connor. A feature that this model had, and that no other had, was the following:
A strobe type light on the back of the marker. The theme of this pinball was inspired by fictional characters. It was the second Bally model to incorporate a voice of its own. For those wondering what the first model was, its name was “Xenon”. The strobe light, for many pin, turned out to be uncomfortable
A few days into production, it was decided to remove it. In addition, the small transparent opening that illuminated this light was covered by a plastic laminate. These are the marketing slogans used in this pinball game:
“Try again, earthling” and “pathetic earthlings… who can save them now?”
