Based on the classic 1990 film, the Jurassic Park Pinball models the same principles that first made the franchise so successful; ‘dinosaurs are awesome’. In the film, CEO John Hammond has created Jurassic Park – a theme park with living, breathing attractions. During a demonstration to experts, the park’s security system fails, and mayhem ensues.
The pinball game features eleven gameplay modes, each beginning by shooting the right scoop – the Control Room – when lit. In the top right corner, a menacing dinosaur head twitches and snaps, temporarily consuming any ball unlucky enough to be in its vicinity. The ‘Raptor Coil’ similarly packs a vicious kick, firing the ball back towards the player. The autoplunger is shaped like a gun, packing a ‘smart missile button’ that lights the playfield. Also furnishing the machine are three pop bumpers and a captive ball feature.
Capturing the essence of all that is great about the film, the Jurassic Park is a game that (like the dinosaurs themselves) transcends entire generational gaps with its widespread appeal.
