Total Nuclear Annihilation: Reactor 9 (Pinball)

Post by Flack » Sun Jan 13, 2019 7:32 pm

Recently I got to play a relatively new (2017) pinball game called Total Nuclear Annihilation: Reactor 9.

Here's a video of the machine in action, but just to explain things a bit... it's more of a strategy/skill-shot game than a full on action pinball machine. Just above the halfway mark there are a series of nine pink and blue lights that represent the reactor cores. After all of these have been lit, the reactor at the top becomes active. Once that happens, you have to get the ball up into the reactor up at the top and destroy it, which starts the whole process over again. Apparently you have to do this 9 times to beat the game. I did it once and the machine started shaking like a crack whore in church.

Other than the world's most annoying eight-year-old, this video does a decent job of showing off the game.

Some games, especially those multi- ball barrage tables, make you just jam on the flippers and try to keep as many balls in play for as long as possible whereas the other kind gives you time to focus on a particular target
