Volkan Steel & Metal is a unique game with toggled scoring where some strategically placed targets change scoring to Player 2 (Robert Baron), and others change it back to Player 1 (Capt. Tweed). In a one player game, your goal is retain as much of the "money" as possible. Once a score is awarded, it is retained by the player.

The backstory will help understand the rules and concept:

Volkan Steel & Metal is an original game design based on a late 1800s Steampunk metal factory founded by Capt. Augustus Tweed in the town of Irongate. The Company found massive success with Tweed's discovery that Strontium, when used in alloys, makes metals stronger and lighter. This proved valuable in the development of Steampunk airships, devices and prosthetics. Competitors were unsuccessful in re-creating Tweed's formulas, so their tactics turned ruthless. Tweed's sister, Abigail, naively met and married Mr. Robert Baron while in college, and convinced her brother to hire Baron at Volkan to improve their standing in the community. But Tweed suspects Baron is trying to take control of the Company, or is a spy trying to steal the formulas. Robert and Abigail think Tweed is paranoid. 


Your goal is to complete orders for metals and alloys while retaining as much of the Volkan’s profits. To complete an order, you will need Coal (saucer) to stoke the Blast Furnace (upper left VUK) and raise the temperature. You will also need a certain amount of Steam and Electricity for each order to run the factory. And, of course, the necessary ores needed for each order: Iron, Copper, Tin, and Zinc bumpers & Carbon standup. Plus, Volkan’s secret element: Strontium drop targerts. Once everything is collected for each order, the Blast Furnace door opens in the upper center. A successful shot completes the order.



Build your fortune by running Volkan Steel  & Metal. Your money is collected in Tweed’s bank account. But your scheming brother-in-law, Robert Baron, will STEAL your money and MEDDLE in your affairs if you’re not careful. Two Baron Blue standups switch scoring from Tweed's Player 1 score to Baron's Player 2 score.  Two Tweed Green targets switch scoring from Baron’s score back to Tweed’s  score. Play as Baron! Use flippers to choose if you want to play as Tweed or Baron before launching Ball 1.

Must be selected before first ball is launched. In a two player game where Tweed is Player 1 and Baron is Player 2, both players can add to their own score and switch scoring to their opponent with the Blue and Green targets. So keep an eye on the center console (apron) light, playfield lights or backbox to see who has control. Player with the most money at the end of the game takes control of Volkan.

Awesome! I have said it before and I will say it again. The only new pinball table that anyone will ever play, that is not in development at a manufacturer, will come from amazing and talented VPX artists! and here is more proof that the original VPX table space is booming! What a cool original concept, with great theming, lighting and sound effects and an excellent layout/gameplay. Even small details, like the slightly different colored metal pinballs, add to the aura!  A Total Package well done!!

Phenomenal table.   The sounds and DOF effects are amazing.    So unique.   I can only see myself enjoying this more and more the more I play it as I'll get to understand the ruleset better.   



This table oozes with talent.    Well done Onevox and everyone that contributed!

We're entering the age of truly outstanding VPX original tables, and this is the clear best in show to date. Easily bests any of Zen's original tables. This is what you show anyone who wants to know where virtual pinball is at in 2023. Masterwork!

This is in my top 3 original tables ever bar none! Everything about it shocked me. I never expected this today, but I've played for an hour straight and wish I had time to continue tonight. The gorgeous design, unique rules, sound, and atmosphere are top-notch! I had to leave a quick review before bed. Just bravo going to enjoy this for many years to come!!!

Downloaded - runs out of the box! Cool feature having instructions by magna buttons! Had just one 5-ball game yet - but immediately got hooked and addicted! Theme, sound, shots, atmosphere - all top of the tops! This will definitely be in my ever lasting top ten of vpx-tables! Onevox-this is an award winning work, so cool! (If I remember right, you had a WIP on vpinball long ago with a similar/same theme?)

Thank you (of course to all involved) for sharing!!!

(LUT options would have been nice...maybe theres a way to add?)
