Marketing Slogans:
Notes: Although only 193 complete games were produced, a considerable number of kits (comprising a backglass, playfield and game ROMs) were produced. These kits were usually used to convert “James Bond 007” cabinets. Steve Young told us the Bill of Materials indicates the kits are Model 671 and the full games are Model 671A. We don’t know from him what components make up the “kit”. Eclipse uses the same sound PROM as the export version of Black Hole.
