Notes: In The Pinball Compendium 1982 to Present, designer John Trudeau states that when he worked at Game Plan, his mentor and boss Ed Cebula wanted him to do a playfield layout and artwork on the theme of Attila the Hun. We contacted John who told us that it was about 1981 when he did the layout and artwork, and also it was when Game Plan decided to cease pinball production, thus his game was not made and he left with his artwork. A resurgence of pinball brought Game Plan back into making pinballs and in 1984 this game was finally produced. However, John was with Gottlieb by this time and still possessed his artwork, so new art was done for the game, although John's playfield layout was still used. He has provided for this listing some film photographs of his 1981 art. Artist Larry Blazek told us that he did the (new) art for the playfield and plastics, and Tom Schmelzer did the art for the backglass.
