We have spent many hours on the new Pinball Brothers pinball machine: Alien, from the movies of the same name. And there is a lot to say about this pinball from the science fiction saga :
A generous tray, with toys such as an alien head with a magnetized tongue, egg-shaped bumpers lit in RGB from the inside, or face-huggers (alien larvae that cling to the face) that wriggle above the slingshots, on either side of the beaters
11 or even 12 loops or ramps, a number of alley shots much higher than the average of recent pinball machines
A screen on the playfield
A Widebody board, i.e. wider than the classic format
Mechanics partly inspired by video games, with for example the choice of weapons to destroy the aliens
A sound and an atmosphere ultra faithful to the license !
But also a lack of Quality Control, especially with this still unstable code, which sometimes makes the machine crash
Here is the video in a longer than usual Extra Ball, for a pinball that deserves it !
A big thank you to LG Jeux in Saint-Nazaire and France Flipper, who lent us the machine. We were able to test it in optimal conditions !
