Flash, Rothbauer, and Bord, oh my, we are not on Mongo anymore!

The attention to detail in this effort is amazing, and I honestly had to break myself away from playing it to do this write up, it is REALLY fun to play and I had no idea. The detail on the inserts, the blood sweat and tears put into the flippers, it simply feels amazing to play, and makes the table an absolute pleasure to learn. The was Bally's first split-level pinball machine, but also the first game to use the "Squawk and Talk" sound board, and boy is this recreation faithful to the original hardware.

Ming would be proud guys.... You mercilessly took the challenge, and rose to the occasion. Quite frankly, saving every one of us!

Holy realism. Flash Gordon is hard when the game is working properly, and this game is working properly (VPX duh).

Play this game about 30 times and watch ProAm Pinball Association's video tutorial and you'll see:

Awesome stuff in VR and VPX!! The depth of those lights/bulbs/flashers or whatever they are called in VR really makes the playfield look realistic (who is responsible for those?) Both versions look, play and feel fantastic. Thanks to all who worked on this and thanks for sharing it.

It's a players' table, no question about that.

If you want to practice your pinball skills, play this one. The physics are top notch and the gameplay is compelling!


And when not playing, you'll be staring at the playfield and all its detail, intricacies and crazy real light and reflections.


Thank you so much Rothbauer, Bord and all contributors! 👍
