For all the fans of The Matrix saga, we've created a full experience for all of you, with hours and hours of hard work, for you to enjoy!

Special mention to the mission Killing the Sentinel, triggered by the left target (indicated with an arrow). You'll have to discover how and when to activate it!

Mission are activated in 2 phases, the first one, Entering the Matrix through the phone booth, and then, starting it in the right scoop (also indicated).

In the end, you'll have to choose... RED PILL OR BLUE PILL???


Special thanks to JP Salas for all his unbelievable help and the wonderful script, that we used to create this table.

@VP_Cooks came on my radar with his Buffy the Vampire Slayer and Poltergeist tables, and I was really impressed with the artwork, layout work, and sound design he put into modding one of JP Salas's tables. Today I was surprised with another gem from the kitchen of this mad chef, and I took the Red Pill right away. Glad I did, I had a smile on my face with the discovery that this uses the Godzilla layout, and has some awesome modes.

Installation: Grab and go, currently no B2S. I put a looping image into my backglass for now in Popper and force that on, but a PUP Pack would be awesome here. I volunteer to make the videos if anyone wants to team up!

Play: So many darn modes! VP Cooks has really let all the bullets hang out here, and I hope you have time to figure out what that Matrix REALLY is. The modes are a pleasure to play, and well thought out. Challenging to complete, and there are some nice smooth shots thanks to the layout roots. JP physics are familiar and make this a very fun play.

GraphicsVP is getting really good at taking a concept, layout it out on a table in a way that makes sense, and then makes it very appealing to the eye. His attention to detail is sharp, and the toys created using his imagination often fit the theme so well you almost are tricked into thinking it was a real toy for this original table. The phone booth is a nice touch VP!

Conclusion: VP Cooks always has something special cooking, and he promised me no rabbits (white or not) were harmed in the making of this table. Take the Red Pill, and grab this for some fun. I had a smile on my face playing it the first time, and I hope you do as well.

What if I told you... I recently played and critiqued the table on my "Arelyel Plays" series on YouTube. And I gave this table a final score of 69 / 100, which is 4 stars on my scale.

(Actually, fun fact not related to the review for those reading... Morpheus never said "What if I told you" in The Matrix. He said, "I'm trying to tell you...").




My praises for the table in no particular order:

  • I immensely enjoy the visuals, especially the animated table toys, some of the visual effects, and the sound effects. When you say you put hours into this table, I believe it. And it shows.
    • The FlipperBlood was a nice touch, and it wasn't too graphic so as to make me squirm.
  • This table seems to feature quite a few things to do and explore, especially regarding missions. So I don't think it would be too easy to get bored with the table. The rules were also not overly complex.
  • I really enjoy the table layout with all the unique shots one can take. And while they look very narrow and difficult to hit, they are surprisingly easier to shoot than they appear (except for that darn right scoop).
  • The artwork is good, and it flows well with the table, although I would have preferred a little more on the playfield... maybe a few more characters faintly in the background where there is currently black.
  • I think you incorporated The Matrix movie quite well into the pinball game. I wish I could bend a spoon, though ;) . Oh, wait, there is no spoon.
  • Although I couldn't listen to all the music because, you know, YouTube copyrights... from what I did hear, I made a reasonable assumption that your music selection was really good. I like that you chose thematic / somewhat upbeat music to raise the energy a little while playing it.
  • The physics to me seemed reasonable even though I found out after the stream when I looked in the script that you are not using nFozzy. That's the gold standard to many, but the JP physics you're using seemed good.


My critiques for the table in no particular order:

  • At least 8 different lights were misplaced or had the wrong shape on the table when compared to the playfield image. Furthermore, it makes no sense using triangle lights on top of the bullet images especially since the bullets themselves are much smaller and not shaped like triangles. Also there seems to be missing a small blue light on the far left target (or there exists a blue light insert in error on the playfield image).
  • While I admire your efforts to leave most of the game to mystery, I would have at least preferred the "About" (documentation) to cover as much as a typical rules card on a table would have. Instead, all it said was how to start missions, and a mention of that secret mode. I think a brief mention of the multiball, mystery, hurry-up, target jackpot / super jackpot, Deja Vu, those numbers in the shooter lane, and special should have also been included.
  • For a table with lots of missions and game play, the choice of flippers was not ideal IMO. Wide-spaced flippers with a center post are better suited for fast-paced games with quick rules and objectives. I think this table would have been better suited with Stern style flippers (e.g. not as much spacing, and no center post).
  • It was a bit difficult for me to determine how to enter the phone booth matrix to light enter mission. I was thinking it was the narrow path directly under the phone booth when it was actually the left orbit.
  • I'm not a fan of losing your mystery (once lit) at the end of a ball especially considering you can potentially complete / light mystery from the outlanes.
  • I could be mistaking but it seemed to me that lighting extra ball was an item in the mystery. If I'm right, I don't think it should be. Extra balls (and extra credits) are rewards far too great to be awarded randomly. They should be earned.
  • I'm also not a fan of losing "enter mission" at the end of the ball, although it might have worked with easier flippers to keep the game going a bit longer.
  • I'm not sure what the "special" is; to me, it just seemed like a non-special 2-ball multiball. "Special" usually means an extra credit / free game. So that misled me.
  • I think the skill shot is a bit too difficult considering it's almost impossible not to hit that jet bumper.


Overall, I think this was a well-made game (although please double-check your table elements / lights before release). It's fun, has a nice rule set that is just deep enough to make you want to play more than one game but doesn't overwhelm you, and the visuals are impressive. While it's not among the best of the best, it is still a solid and fun original table that pays tribute to The Matrix.
