BurgerTime Video Game at Sound Leisure

BurgerTime Video Game

The BurgerTime Video Game installed alongside the James Bond Pinball Pro Edition, originally released as Hamburger in Japan, is a 1982 arcade video game from Data East released initially for its DECO Cassette System. The player is chef Peter Pepper, who must walk over hamburger ingredients in a maze of platforms and ladders while avoiding anthropomorphic hot dogs, fried eggs, and pickles which are in pursuit.

The object of the game is to build a number of hamburgers while avoiding enemy foods. The player controls the protagonist, chef Peter Pepper, with a four-position joystick and a “pepper” button.

Each level is a maze of platforms and ladders in which giant burger ingredients (bun, meat patty, tomato, lettuce) are arranged. When Peter walks the full length of an ingredient, it falls to the level below, knocking down any ingredient that happens to be there. A burger is completed when all of its vertically aligned ingredients have been dropped out of the maze and onto a waiting plate. The player must complete all burgers to finish the board.

A Retro Feast at Sound Leisure

So next time you call into Sound Leisure to admire their amazing iconic retro styled jukeboxes, you can take your pick between a Data East video classic or a Stern modern pinball classic.

Pokemon Pinball Machine: The Pinball Rumour Mill

Pokemon Pinball Machine – Stern has the wherewithal!

Created in 1995 by Satoshi Tajiri, Pokemon began life as a pair of video games for the original Nintendo Game Boy. Fast approaching its 30th year, the Pokémon video game series is now the second best-selling video game franchise of all time.

Pocket Monsters

The original name of the franchise in Japanese was Pocket Monsters, which was abbreviated to Pokemon during development of the original games. The franchise takes place in a shared universe in which humans co-exist with creatures known as Pokémon, a large variety of species endowed with special powers. With its colourful cast of characters, exciting battles, and collecting themed game mechanics, a Pokémon pinball machine would make for an exciting and immersive pinball universe. And the popularity of the franchise would help introduce pinball to a whole new audience.

Rumours of a Pokemon pinball machine

Rumours of a Pokemon pinball machine have abound for many years, and a number of good-looking homebrew machines have appeared along the way. More recently Stern’s name has been mentioned in connection with a possible launch, and following the monster success of Godzilla, a Pokemon follow up would make perfect sense. But will a new Pokmon Pinball machine be a Stern production? A recent feature on Knapp Arcade and the resulting chatter on Pinside certainly seems to point that way, however Kineticist suggests that Pokemon is on Stern Pinball’s radar but is not yet in production. Or is it?

Game Boy Pokémon Pinball 20th Anniversary

2023 marks the 20th anniversary of the launch of the Game Boy Advance Pokemon Pinball: Ruby & Sapphire, which was a sequel to the original Pokémon Pinball Game Boy. The recent anniversary social media posts have seen fans begging The Pokemon Company for a revival. So, could Stern be looking to bridge that gap?

One of the biggest selling pinball titles of all time

Given the popularity of the franchise, Pokemon has the capacity to be one of the biggest selling pinball titles of all time – and Stern has the wherewithal to make it happen. So, what better time than the 20th anniversary of the launch of the Game Boy Pokemon Pinball?

Here it here first

Jaws Pinball Machine by Stern – The Pinball Rumour Mill

Jaws Pinball Machine by Stern – swimming our way before Christmas?

In our March 2019 Pinball Rumour Mill we reported that five new pinball machines were rumoured to be heading into production: Stern Pinball James Bond, Stern Pinball Jurassic World, Jersey Jack Pinball Willy Wonka, Jersey Jack Pinball Guns N Roses and Stern Pinball Jaws. Of that list the first four all made it in timely fashion, however the Stern Jaws pinball machine has so far been conspicuous by its absence. But all that might be about to change.

Rumours are once more circulating that Stern’s next offering could be based on the Steven Spielberg classic. And what’s even more exciting is that the word on the street is that Stern will be making an announcement this side of Christmas. But what would a new Stern Jaws pinball machine look like?

Jaws Official Trailer

The original 1975 hit movie – and Keith Elwin

It is taken as read that any self-respecting Jaws pinball machine should be based on the original 1975 hit movie, which grossed twice as much as the three sequels together. And with top-ranking competitive player Keith Elwin, who helped design Stern’s Godzilla, Jurassic Park, Iron Maiden and Avengers Infinity Quest, rumoured to be on Stern’s Jaws design team, we have the combination of iconic theme with highly engaging and intricate game play. It sounds like a hit already.

“You’re gonna need a bigger boat”

Featuring the three main characters of the 1975 film: Chief Martin Brody, Quint and Matt Hooper, played by Roy Scheider, Robert Shaw and Richard Dreyfuss respectively is a must, as is the inclusion of their most iconic lines such as “Smile, you son of a b-tch” and “You’re gonna need a bigger boat.” As with Venom, Stern could also allow you to choose your host; Brody, Quint or Hooper, and different gameplay modes could represent different scenes from the film, working seamlessly with Stern’s Insider Connected, to allow you to track and save your progress.

“Orca” bash toy and play field video

The award winning John Williams soundtrack featuring the unforgettable “Shark” theme, supported by a Stern stereo sound system with 3-channel amplifier and 10-band Graphic Equalizer, will certainly create the required atmosphere. But the sea on a pinball playfield, how’s that going to work? An “Orca” lobster boat bash toy surely has to figure, so perhaps some play field video could help here. It could certainly help portray the Orca in various states of disrepair as the story progresses, which would further bring the game to life and enhance the play.

Custom sculpture shark’s mouth

And how will the shark itself be represented? A skill-shot hitting the gas bottle in a custom sculpture shark’s mouth would work well, supported by more play field video footage, perhaps even in 3D? And a shaker motor on the LE Edition would certainly enhance this playfield experience.

So, a Stern Jaws pinball machine based on the 1975 film featuring Brody, Quint and Hooper and their most iconic lines, gameplay by Keith Elwin, different gameplay modes, an Orca Bash Toy, Jaws skill shot, play field video and atmospheric soundtrack, seamlessly integrated with Insider Connected appears to be the order of the day. Throw in different cabinet and translite combinations to further enhance the experience and it looks like a pretty good Christmas wish list to us.

Watch This Space!

We will have to wait for Stern’s official announcement for the full details to be revealed, but we one thing we can predict for certain is, you’re going to need a bigger pinball room!

Watch this space for updates on Stern Pinball’s new Jaws pinball machine.

Elton John Pinball Machine – The Pinball Rumour Mill

Elton John Pinball Machine to be revealed by Jersey Jack at the Chicago Pinball Expo?

Rumours of Jersey Jack creating a new Elton John pinball machine have been circulating for a number of years, but now the rumours are starting to gain some traction.

Pinball Wizard

Following the success of the film Tommy in 1975 in which Elton John was cast as the Pinball Wizard, Bally launched the Captain Fantastic Pinball Machine in 1976.

Justly renowned for the terrific quality of its illustrations, Bally’s Captain Fantastic went on to be a great success in the late ‘70s, and restored versions of the table are now much sought after.

So, with Elton having recently completed his five-year Farewell Yellow Brick Road tour, could the timing be right for an Elton John farewell pinball machine?

If there is a new Elton John pinball on the way from Jersey Jack it is certain to be the brainchild of renowned pinball machine designer Steve Ritchie, who joined Jersey Jack in 2021. But what will it look like, and when might we see it?

Elton John Pinball Machine - Captain Fantastic
Steve Ritchie - Jersey Jack Pinball

Steve Ritchie developed a passion for pinball at a young age and began his career in the early 1970s, working for Atari as a game tester before transitioning to designing pinball machines.

Ritchie’s breakthrough came in 1979 when he created “Flash,” a highly successful pinball machine that showcased his innovative design and gameplay mechanics. This achievement led to his collaboration with Williams Electronics, where he designed some of the most iconic pinball machines of all time. One of Ritchie’s most notable creations was “Black Knight,” released in 1980. It revolutionized the industry with its innovative features, including a multi-level playfield and a magnificently designed back glass. The game’s success led to a sequel, “Black Knight 2000,” which further solidified Ritchie’s reputation as a visionary designer.

Throughout his career, Ritchie has continued to produce groundbreaking pinball machines, including “Terminator 2: Judgment Day,” “Star Trek: The Next Generation,” and “AC/DC.” His designs are known for their fast-paced gameplay, engaging themes, and intricate rule sets, captivating players worldwide.
