Halloween/Ultraman

Post by NoahK »

Neat idea of Spooky releasing two machines that look to be built on the same hardware, just different art packages and code. Crazy to see that they sold out with more than twice the number of games in less time than Rick & Morty even with website issues. Congratulations to Spooky and everyone involved in this success.

Anyone on here getting one or both of these machines?
The Hobbit, Alien Poker, DE Star Wars, Heavy Metal Meltdown, Total Nuclear Annihilation, Rick and Morty

I'm in on a UMBSE! Initially, I was going to pass on the releases, but my wife kept pestering me about it...so I had to oblige :)

I only knew of UM but never really watched it. Watched the first few episodes last night and I can see the charm especially at the time it was released. Oddly enough, I found myself smiling most of the time. I won't work my way through the entire series, but I'll definitely watch some of it, and probably hit the most recent Netflix series.

Layout-wise, it looks like there's a lot going on, on each of the playfields. I love the use of drops (I love drop targets) and the lifters to the inlanes intrigues me. The art on both games are AMAZING. I'll be curious to see how well it shoots and the use of assets on UM specifically, but also on Halloween as well.

I'll be honest, if it was just a Halloween release, we probably would have passed since we have younger kids that play, so Charlie definitely did a +1 for us by co-releasing a family friendly theme.

Don't expect the code to be different. It's just an asset swap. They'll play the same.

That's what I was assuming as far as code goes. It wouldn't make practical sense to have different rules for the same layout. Definitely looking forward to how the assets are used, and for sure how the game plays!

Dont worry, there will be a couple of each coming to the Madison area.

I have a few of each left in reserve and would prefer to deal locally instead of posting on pinside about them.
