Much like Tengen's Dragon's Fury, this is a true pinball title designed by and for pinball heads. Whether you are a novice or a fanatic, this vid-pinball cart feels like the real thing...with effects mundane pinball machines only can dream about. Crüe Ball gives you a wild kind of tunnel- vision. All the background noise disappears. It's just you and the ball...and the sound of Crüe-zic!
- TIP: The Bonus Game pits you against a wall full of skeletons.
The game table has been broken down into three sections: top, middle and bottom. It recreates the sounds, speed and actual physics of a steel ball in motion. You can even put body English on the table by hitting the B-Button.
- TIP: Skulls with sandals and green dreadlocks (Dreadheads) trundle across the gates. Bash 'em with the ball for extra points.
Crank up the Volume
As soon as you power up the ball and let it fly, the weirdness begins. Criie Ball can be played as nine "volume levels" (read difficulty levels). Each has a progressively tougher set of requirements to meet before you can play the next level. Things you have to do include knocking down drop targets that read HEAD BANGER and ROCKROLL, destroying the Dread Heads, quashing crabula before they can start hatching maggots (gross!) and demolishing the 18 cerebral Cyclops.
Each volume level has a "way cool" bonus round with a totally new game layout. To get there you have to, among other things, knock down all the ROCKROLL and JUMPRAMP targets. You wind up in a game of what can only be described as headbanger vid-pin football.
- TIP: Launch off the Jump Ramp to get into the Bonus Game Tunes licensed from the Crüe include Dr. Feelgood and Home Sweet Home. If you like pinball, metal and Alister Fiend, you'll have a speaker-blastin' good time with Crüe Ball.
"...Fellow Rockers, don't despair Don't touch that dial, don't cut your hair Above the crowd you'll hear the cry "Metal is Too Young to Die!"" quote from Metal Mission.
