Notes: Release date is 1-1978. The manufacturer's flyer and playfield text explain the unique 100,000 points award for a ball remaining on the spinning disc for ten seconds. However, the game programming doesn't know the ball is actually on the spinning disc because the disc has no sensors on it. A player has reported that all that is required is that the ball not score any points for ten seconds and that the player not activate the flippers during that time, and the 100,000 points will be awarded. Reportedly, this is the first game to use a second generation of Sega solid state pinball board(s), featuring new sound and a new pop bumper style. However, we have not been provided supporting information for this report.
