NEW Dialed In Pinball Machine from Jersey Jack Pinball!
There’s been talk of a collaboration between Jersey Jack Pinball and legendary pinball designer, Pat Lawlor, for a while now but the details have been kept top secret. Other than the fact that it would be based on an original concept, everything else has remained a mystery—until now. At the 32nd Annual Pinball Expo 2016 in Chicago, the brand new pinball machine, Dialed In, was finally revealed and it really does look like it was worth the wait.
For anyone unfamiliar with Pat Lawlor, he is responsible for designing some of the best-selling pinball machines of all time: Addams Family, Twilight Zone, FunHouse and EarthShaker to name a few. Dialed In is his first offering in almost ten years and is something of a departure from the pinball industry’s recent trend of licensing popular themes; Jersey Jack himself stuck with a movie theme for his first two Wizard of Oz and The Hobbit pinball machines. The use of an original theme may be relatively risky but it is a refreshing revisit to some of the more memorable pinball machines from the ‘80s and ‘90s, though this time with a unique modern twist…
Dialed In is the first pinball machine ever to feature Bluetooth connectivity, a camera and the ability to unlock additional player capabilities through a smartphone. Is this the next generation of pinball? The fans seems to think so. Lawlor’s modern masterpiece, expertly crafted by Jersey Jack Pinball, has already received an influx of orders and managed to crash the JJP website within 24 hours of being announced! Intrigued?
According to some of the lucky first players, the game is a sort of SimCity Disaster idea, jam-packed with toys and unique characters created by Mr. Lawlor himself. Further adding to the experience, the gameplay is ‘broadcast’ by an action news channel on the backbox and features a spacial multiball mode which players can activate simply by placing their smartphone down on the glass. For spectators, it’s almost like watching someone play a video game, with the added opportunity of jumping in a selfie when the camera goes off! The first reviews are in and they are raving: Dialed In really is a game changer.
The machine comes in three versions: Standard, Limited and Collector’s Edition, each including the groundbreaking new Bluetooth and smartphone connectivity and camera that everyone’s talking about. Housed in Quantum body armour and decorated with original artwork by illustrator John Youssi, the game also features 5 magnets, 3 flying drones, a 3D interactive projected image, an animated robot and a hidden trap door, all of which can be fully taken advantage of thanks to a variety of different gameplay options. Like other Jersey Jack Pinball machines, Dialed In has a 27″ HD monitor, a headphone jack, a 2.1 stereo surround system and RGD LEDs throughout the playfield.
With only 2500 Limited Edition machines available, you can bet they’re going to sell out fast; lighted ramps, a signed game certificate and glare-reducing InvisiGlass are just a few of the additional features on top of the Standard. And for those of you wanting to go all the way, the Collector’s Edition also comes complete with mirrored back panels, a signed comic book and a special collector’s plaque signed by none other than Pat Lawlor, Jack Guarnieri and John Youssi themselves. You can see the full list of differences between the Dialed In Collector’s, Limited and Standard editions here.
