The new Led Zeppelin Pinball by Stern! The game is designed by the legendary Steve Ritchie and features 10 full Led Zeppelin songs for you to play through.
“In this high energy rock and roll pinball concert experience, pinball and music are fused together. Players are transported back to Led Zeppelin’s early days and tour the world from 1968-1980. As if players were members of the band playing its music, their play updates game features at the start of each verse and chorus of ten iconic Led Zeppelin songs:
- Good Times Bad Times
- Whole Lotta Love
- The Song Remains the Same
- Rock and Roll
- Trampled Under Foot
- Ramble On
- Immigrant Song
- Black Dog
- Communication Breakdown”
Here is a great tutorial from one of the coders of the machine and multiple time world champion Raymond Davidson. The game is a great mix of simplicity and complexity with its rules and the shots just feel great with three metal ramps sending the ball all over the playfield.
We have been told The Mandalorian should be shipping to us next week, and we still have at least one more game coming in this week and we change the lineup a bit before we start summer.
See everyone tonight!
With more and more things returning to normalcy we have decided to bring back PinQuest and it will be coming with more and more cool features! Expect this to officially launch sometime in the next week, but in the meantime download the app and read up on the new features in this article from This Week in Pinball!
That’s right, it’s the best day of the week! FREE PLAY Wednesday in the bar tonight! Tomorrow night we will have pinball league at 8:30 like usual, and we will have a new game coming in for that as well that is a surprise! And we should be adding in another Classic game or two before the weekend! This Sunday we will have your Monthly 4-Strikes tournament starting at 3PM! It should be a hell of a pinball week so come on down to North End Pub and have some flippin fun!
