Pinball machines mostly only contain and carry one game. This review is dedicated to just reviewing a handful of games which you will find in the collection of the gurus, and the people who value different machines at their homes. Most collectors say that it´s really not just about the game, but also about the reason why you collect them, and this is to basically have a reminder on versions that have been on the market for around 20 years ago.
The Getaway is still a very popular game that hit the pinball industry, and one of it is called “High Speed”. Collectors mean that Getaway should never miss in any collection, because it LITERALLY is the sense of the pinball game. The sound itself is one of the most adventurous, challenging and also typical for this specific niche. “High speed” also hit the arcade world, and after you found many machines by an arcade provider. This was one of the first games that had a beginning, middle, and also end story align to complete. This was a turning point for many pinball gurus who started playing the game consequently, because nothing like this was on the market before.
The Williams games that came after it were “Pin Bot”, “Cyclone”, “F-14 Tomcat”, and have been played a lot too. If you are familiar with High Speed, know about the play field, music, sound, it is very similar in design to most other pinball machines. Even it might be similar to Pin Bot and co, it is on the other hand totally different when it comes to the lights and of course the sounds. The machine is programmed that it will scream a call to action such as: “Dude, the only thing you have to do is to change your lights”. Unlike to PC and Playstation games, it appears much more natural and real, and this is mainly why the gamers have fallen in love with Pinball in general.
Now, when the copes start to chase you in “Getaway” your goal is to lock 3 balls, after that you will get a multi ball, than you will have to play for the jackpot, and then you have the whole deal. You have a couple of things in the design than are different from the standard and also previous model, but it works pretty similar. If you are a gamer who seeks the action, and want to collect pinball machines, Getaway has to be found in your own collection.
