Notes: This is the second pinball machine from any manufacturer to be produced with alpha-numeric displays. It was used to spell out words and messages in addition to scores. High Score initials are entered using two buttons on the cabinet front. Designer John Trudeau told us that ten test games made were of a previous game, Mylstar's 1984 'Jacks to Open', to test this new display. The first pinball machine produced with alpha-numeric displays was Wico's 1984 'Af-Tor'. An earlier game, Williams' 1981 'Hyperball', had an alpha-numeric display but is Not A Pinball.
