With The Hobbit Pinball Machine having just been released, we thought we would celebrate our status as the sole UK distributor for Jersey Jack Pinball Machines with a blog about what makes this game outstanding.
Jack Guarnieri, founder of Jersey Jack Pinball, is already a celebrity within the pinball community and the recent release of The Hobbit Pinball Machine is only going to cement his legendary status. His creativity and passion for pinball is almost single-handedly bringing pinball up to date.
At a time when many people had written pinball off as a dying hobby, The Hobbit is helping to bring pinball to a brand new audience with the introduction of far superior technology. The Hobbit pinball machine boasts 2 lcd screens bringing 21st century video game-like graphics to this classic arcade genre.
The backglass of The Hobbit Pinball Machine is a 27” full hd, lcd monitor which helps to provide a much more in-depth story line. The screen has been described as an information station and basically guides players through the game. Of course, this screen will help to engage and teach people new to pinball how to play which is a boost to the pinball community worldwide.
Uniquely, this screen shows you all the different modes that you are going to have to complete and contains 4 different quadrants to show you what is going on. The top right quadrant is a helpful map which shows you where you are within the game.
The second screen is smaller but no less important. Set within the play field itself, this screen is a book (including turning pages) that tells you what you tasks you need to accomplish.
Whilst these screens are the most innovative aspect of The Hobbit Pinball Machine, the team at Jersey Jack Pinball have managed to include a number of other exciting features making The Hobbit a pinball machine that you simply have to play to believe.
