physics kind of poor! The edges of targets etc. are very rough.The flippers are positioned in an awkward angle. At some places the ball gets stuck. Peculiar ballmovement happens regulary. 11 11 11 11
graphics rough object borders. The ball shrinks the farther up the playfield it goes. The objects seem to be hovering. The tables look more like done by hand. 0 0 0 0
difficulty The flipper lack power so you rarely get in the upper playfield. 5 5 5 5
fun what fun, the playing is cruel! 2 2 2 2
layout / gameplay rather poor 2 2 2 2
specials every table has 3 different playfields, not new ones but changed positions of the known objects. Jets partly animated. Some have a boundary to the upper playfield that has to be hit several times to vanish. 5 5 5 5
tilt/nudging Only from left and right and very sensible (might tilt with first try) 0 0 0 0
