Retro Atomic Zombie Adventureland – deeproot Pinball

Retro Atomic Zombie Adventureland (RAZA) by deeproot Pinball set to launch in 2020.

Since its foundation in 2015, deeproot Pinball,  part of R&D Tech Company deeproot Tech and based in in San Antonio, Texas, has been quietly making progress on its plan to become a major pinball manufacturing company. With a fresh approach to the pinball market, in May this year deeproot Pinball stated they were not looking to “compete with existing pinball manufacturers and churn out the outdated and uninspired pinball package as it exists in the market today” but had chosen a chosen a different path, working on “The simultaneous development on hundreds of unique pinball innovations and tens of titles…”

And deeproot’s progress so far appears to be all positive. They have been in licensing talks for several major pinball titles and have hired among others, pinball machine designer John Popadiuk, who started work in the business for Bally in 1980. They have also hired one of the top ten pinball players in the world, Steve Bowden as their rules designer. So, it was no surprise when deeproot announced that two early prototypes of their first pinball machine, Retro Atomic Zombie Adventureland (RAZA) would be at the Houston Arcade Expo in November, the announcement was met with much eager anticipation.

Retro Atomic Zombie Adventureland - RAZA

Retro Atomic Zombie Adventureland (RAZA) Prototype

It is important to note that the pictures in this Pinball Heaven blog post of Retro Atomic Zombie Adventureland (RAZA) are shown in prototype form. Some elements such as the cabinet shape and cabinet, backbox and translite artwork are not the finished product, while other features such as the display and playfield layout are not expected to change significantly. It is expected that the final iterations of Retro Atomic Zombie Adventureland (RAZA) could be revealed as early as June next year. Watch this space!

Cabinet, Backbox, Shooter, Coin Door & Flipper

The RAZA prototype cabinet and backbox look very conventional designs, but might change prior to production. The cabinet shown has a very conventional shooter rod, start button and coin door, as well as just a single flipper button on each side.

Retro Atomic Zombie Adventureland (RAZA) Playfield

The playfield too harks back to the glory days of pinball design when game designers were always striving to devise ever more imaginative playfield toys. Retro Atomic Zombie Adventureland was, of course, originally a Zidware design created by John in his studio in Streamwood, Illinois. The design has changed significantly since then with much more emphasis on the theme park elements, although there are a few obvious similarities including the Z-O-M-B-I-E inserts, the centre-left ramp, the orbit lanes and the target at the very back of the playfield.

The new design packs plenty of shots and features into the playfield, including a Ferris wheel, a dare devil cycle ramp with a target at the end, three roll-over buttons in front of a swinging target along with some more conventional drop and stand-up targets and a spinning disc. There are also some throwback references to earlier theme park games by Barry Oursler, who is also designing at Deeproot, such as “ride the Ferris wheel”, “dunk the dummy” and “ride the rollercoaster”.

Retro Atomic Zombie Adventureland - RAZA

Ned & Ultra-Wide-Aspect Display Panel

At the back of the playfield is a swinging target with a model of the chief alien bad guy, Ned, along with a ramp feeding to him. Above this, the colour display is an ultra-wide-aspect panel which gives plenty of space left and right for in-game information but not much height for portrait-shaped objects such as faces, or indeed the game’s logo. Scoring for this ‘retro’ design is kept deliberately low with no trailing zero, but with room for the score to reach just shy of ten million. Speaker grilles are below the panel, not allowing for very large drivers but giving a more integrated look and providing space above for a full-size translite.

Promising Start for deeproot’s RAZA

These prototype views reveal a promising start for deeproot Pinball’s forthcoming Retro Atomic Zombie Adventureland (RAZA) pinball machine and we eagerly await the reveal of the final visuals sometime around June next year. Model variations and pricing have not been annouced yet, but as soon as we find out, you can be sure we will let you know on this Pinball Heaven blog, so make sure to stay tuned!

Medieval Madness Pinball Machine – The Remake!

Medieval Madness Pinball Machine Royal Edition announced by Chicago Gaming.

One of the all time top 5 pinball machines has been lovingly remanufactured by Chicago Gaming in USA and now you have the chance to own one of the best new pinball machines ever made, for sale exclusively in the UK at Pinball Heaven.

Chicago Gaming is pleased to offer the rebirth, under license from Williams Electronics Games Inc. of the original smash hit pinball machine, Medieval Madness. Recreated to the exacting standards of the original game, this remake contains a number of enhanced features not available on the original game including: modern electronics, fully adjustable color display, all LED lighting, and class D digital audio amplifier.

Medieval Madness is widely held to be one of the best pinball machines of all time. This status coupled with the fact only 4,000 of these games were built has driven the resale value of the original game beyond the reach of most pinball collectors.

Whether you are a pinball novice or expert, you’ll come to appreciate the game’s universally appealing gameplay, which includes the exploding castle, motorized drawbridge and two pop-up trolls. Your mission in this multi-ball game is to battle for the kingdom! Step back in time to the middle ages of the 15th century where kingdoms were fought and lost for.

Watch the Roger Sharpe Medieval Madness Video

Medieval Madness Pinball Machine – All LED Lighting

Never replace a bulb again! The new Medieval Madness pinball machine features all LED lighting. Great effort was invested in recreating the warmth and feel of the original incandescent bulbs with the modern reliability of LEDs.

MMRs system hardware and software slowly ramp LED brightness up and down to emulate the look of the original incandescent bulbs.

The LED manufacturer rates the life of each individual LED at 50,000 hours if driven to full brightness. Each playfield insert is backlit by a cluster of three LEDs which are driven only to one-third the manufacturer’s specified maximum brightness. Should any of the three LEDs in a single insert cluster ever fail, the system hardware will automatically increase the brightness of the remaining LEDs to compensate for the failed LED. This redundancy, coupled with the long life of the LEDs, means most owners of the Medieval Madness remake will never replace a single lamp over the game’s lifetime.

Medieval Madness Features Menu

The new features menu allows the operators to:

  • Set the display colour
  • Adjust the speed at which LED bulbs ramp up and down
  • Adjust the strength of coils
  • Adjust the shaker motor strength
  • Adjust dip switch settings
Medieval Madness Pinball Machine

Medieval Madness Classic, Special & Royal Editions

The new Medieval Madness Pinball Machine is available in Classic Edition, Special Edition and a very special Royal Edition. All three models boast the all-new LED lighting. In addition, the Classic Edition features a 13-1/8″ display and stainless trim. The Special Edition features the same stainless trim but with an XL 19-1/4” display, along with an HD colour upgrade, premium enhanced sound system, RGB LED general Illumination and RGB LED back board lighting.

Stranger Things Pinball Machine – Pinball Rumour Mill

Is Stern Pinball: Stranger Things pinball machine likely to happen, or is it just yet more pinball rumour mill wishful thinking?

On 15th July 2016, Netflix released Stranger Things, an American science fiction horror television series created by the Duffer Brothers. Five weeks later, on 19th August 2016, Stern Pinball’s Facebook cover photo was changed to resemble Netflix’ Stranger Things tree backdrop and opening titles. Since then rumours have been floating around about a possible Stern Pinball: Stranger Things pinball machine.

Stranger Things – only three years old

Stranger Things has only recently celebrated its third birthday and is unlikely to be instantly recognisable to the majority. So, it is perhaps unlikely that anyone would gamble on creating a pinball machine based on such a relatively new title. This is particularly pertinent when you consider a couple of Stern’s most recent themes: Jurassic Park, whose franchise first launched onto the big screen in 1993 and The Munsters, whose first outing was aired as far back as September 1964. So, would an imminent Stern Stranger Things pinball machine simply be way too soon?

Stranger Things Pinball Machine - Rumour Mill

Unprecedented explosion in popularity

Stranger Things has enjoyed an unprecedented explosion in popularity since its launch in 2016 and is now Netflix’ most popular original show, boasting 64 million views; almost 20 million more views than the streaming platform’s second highest series, The Umbrella Academy. Furthermore, for its third season Netflix revealed that Stranger Things had broken all viewing records, with 40.7 million households watching the show in its first four days. So, Stranger Things continues to grow exponentially. Unsurprisingly, Netflix announced on 30th September 2019 that they had renewed the series for its eagerly awaited fourth season.

Stranger Things – the perfect pinball friendly theme?

To pitch Stranger Things, the Duffer Brothers showcased images, footage and music from classic 1970s and 1980s films such as E.T. the Extra-Terrestrial, Close Encounters of the Third Kind, Poltergeist, Hellraiser, Stand by Me, Firestarter, A Nightmare on Elm Street and Jaws, in order to establish the tone of the series. So, given the increasing demand for 70’s and 80’s retro games, could it be that Stranger Things proves to be the perfect foundation for a brand new, retro-feel pinball machine?

Indeed, Season One alone lends itself to a highly immersive playfield: set in the fictional town of Hawkins, Indiana, in November 1983, the first season of Stranger Things focuses on the investigation into the disappearance of a young boy, Will Byers, amid supernatural events occurring around the town, including the appearance of a faceless monster called “The Demogorgon” and a girl with psychokinetic abilities, known simply as “Eleven” who helps the missing boy’s friends in their search. And with episodes entitled: “The Vanishing of Will Byers”, “The Weirdo on Maple Street”, “Holly, Jolly”, “The Body”, “The Flea and the Acrobat”, “The Monster”, “The Bathtub” and “The Upside Down”, the possibilities sound endless.

Stranger Things Pinball Machine - Rumour Mill

Stern Pinball: Stranger Things – sounding good!

The soundtrack wouldn’t be half-bad either, featuring original, retro-sounding atmospheric synthesizer sounds which pay homage to legends such as Jean-Michel Jarre, Tangerine Dream, Vangelis and John Carpenter. And with additional music from artists including The Clash, Joy Division, Toto, New Order, The Bangles, Foreigner, Echo and the Bunnymen, Peter Gabriel, and Corey Hart, a Stern Pinball: Stranger Things pinball machine just started to sound a whole lot better.

A whole new pinball audience

It also has to be said that given the broad demographic of the Stranger Things audience, coupled with the fact that Sony Interactive Entertainment has announced it is currently working on a PlayStation 4-exclusive game, Stranger Things would bring pinball and Stern to a whole new and rapidly expanding audience. This could prove to be the most inspired piece of pinball marketing we have witnessed for many years.

Will Stern Pinball: Stranger Things ever see the light of day?

So, there we have it: a retro-feel, 1980’s based, record-breaking, supernatural hit series with a world of possibilities at its fingertips, utilising a superb soundtrack and appealing to a wide and rapidly expanding audience. Will Stern Pinball: Stranger Things ever see the light of day, or will it remain forever stuck in the pinball machine rumour mill?

Whatever the outcome be sure to read it here first…

Stern Pinball’s Star Wars Pinball machine, originally launched in 2017 is getting a makeover, with the addition of original, hand-drawn “Comic Art” from long time Lucasfilm artist Randy Martinez.

Despite the interesting gameplay, movie clips, and fantastic sound of Stern’s 2017 Star Wars pinball machine, the original art package held Star Wars back from being truly great. Happily, the newly launched Comic Art Star Wars Pinball Machine appears to remedy this.

“Fans of both pinball and Star Wars will be impressed by this hand-drawn comic artwork.  It is stunning and captures everything a true Star Wars fan could ever want in their pinball machine,” said Gary Stern, Chairman and CEO of Stern Pinball, Inc.

Elvira Pinball Machine Trailer Released

Elvira Pinball Machine: Stern Pinball finally puts out the first trailer for its eagerly awaited new new game; Elvira’s House of Horrors.

Stern Pinball Elvira Pinball Machine First Trailer

Elvira Pinball – Due Out This October!

It was in March 2017 at a Texas Pinball Festival seminar when it was accidentally announced that a third Elvira pinball machine was in the pipeline. So, it came as no surprise when three months ago Cassandra Peterson, the American actress best known for her portrayal of the horror hostess character Elvira, Mistress of the Dark, confirmed the follow-up to the two existing Elvira pinball machines. Cassandra, or rather Elvira stated, “AND… I couldn’t be more excited to announce that, after a looooong wait, my latest pinball machine from Stern is FINALLY due out this October! If you thought Party Monsters and Scared Stiff were good, wait till you get a load’a this baby! Nothin’ but pure blood-curdling FUN! Thanx for being a part of my Fang Club! Until next time, Unpleasant Dreemz… Your Cruelly, Elvira”

Nordman, Freres & Sheats

Rumours abound that Dennis Nordman who worked on both Elvira and the Party Monsters and Scared Stiff, has been involved in the layout and design. It has also been suggested that Nordman’s long-time collaborator Greg Freres, who also worked on both previous Elvira pinball machines, has been helping to develop the artwork, while Stern Pinball software engineer and professionally ranked pinball player Lyman Sheats Jr, who served his time at both Data East and Williams, has been taking care of the code. If these rumours prove to be true, then Stern Pinball’s eagerly awaited Elvira’s House of Horrors pinball machine could well be the greatest and most immersive Elvira pinball offering to date.

Elvira Pinball Machine by Stern

Watch This Space!

But while Elvira did quote October, no release date for her new pinball machine has yet been confirmed by Stern. So, watch this space for all the latest Stern Pinball Elvira updates. Don’t dare to miss it!
