Unveiling the Classic Marvel: The Addams Family Pinball Machine
Step into the timeless allure of The Addams Family pinball machine, a true icon in the world of pinball and the best-selling machine since the 1930s, boasting an impressive 20,270 units sold. Crafted by Midway under the Bally name, this solid-state electronic game is a captivating piece of art, taking inspiration from the 1991 movie of the same name. The game features custom speech, primarily drawn from the movie’s stars, Raul Julia and Anjelica Huston, immersing players in the eerie charm of the Addams family.
The overarching goal is to “Explore the strange world of the Addams Family.” While there is no singular player objective, two central missions captivate players:
The Mansion: Dominating the playfield’s center is The Addams Family mansion, adorned with 12 “windows.” Each window opens a portal to a different room, enticing players with unique awards and mysteries.
Vault Multiball: Nestled in the top-right section is a mysterious blue bookcase, reminiscent of the one Gomez shows Uncle Fester in the movie. Strikes to the bookcase contribute letters to spell “Greed.” Upon completion, the bookcase pivots, unveiling a shot to the vault behind. A successful shot locks the ball for future multiball action, or it can initiate an immediate multiball if two balls have been previously secured. The bookcase also grants access to the vault during various mini-games, each time offering distinct scores and effects.
Flippers: Four in total, including three regular-sized and one “Thing Flips” game-controlled mini-flipper.
Pop Bumpers: Five strategically placed for dynamic gameplay.
Ramps: Two enticing ramps beckon players to master their shots.
Kick-out Hole: A singular kick-out hole adds an element of surprise to the game.
Dual Left Inlanes: Enhancing the strategic options for players.
