Came across this pic of a ROCK OLA 464 and am wondering what the pinball is in it....Anyone know?

For the record I don't.

Got lucky searching for "fire" on IPDB.   ;D

It is "Wild Fyre" by Stern.

I think you are way off the mark here. While I agree wild fyre sucks balls, Seawitch, Galaxy and Flight 2000  totally kick ass and put many modern games to shame.

And I think your nose is too sensitive.... :lol

It 's all a matter of opinion and in the end NO ONE REALLY CARES either way.

We all live in a fantasy world where we think our opinions matter to someone else other than ourselves.

They don't....

Seawitch is an excellent game.

I kinda like Hot Hand.

Meteor is fun.

Dracula has a neat layout.

Game looks decent to me.  Not sure what anyone would expect out of a 1978 game.  EM layout with some basic electronics in it.   :dunno

We all did get a bit spoiled when the first multi level games came out, it was all glitz and bang for awhile.. Some impressive stuff. But playing some old tables and trying to get  a free ball, free play etc.. took some complicated shooting quite often and was quite rewarding once you could do it. I know I had a FAROUT (2player- 74) and a Black Knight (sad story I sold um both, the end... very sad, tearing up right now thinking about it).. strange as it was.. once we made high score the thing to beat (we had a clipboard) Farout was far harder to score big in then Black Night.. somebody was constantly beating the Black knight.. but the Farout record stood for months.. hence it was the most played, maybe the competition made it great, but it got played far more.

now im   :cry: i sold my PINS!!!!!!!! dang it.. where is a time machine when you need it? fix those Important bad choices..  keep my pins, keep my first 4 arcade games.. bough that Tutenkaman,  good gosh, bought that Tempest Mini for $500 which i thought was outrageous. Change my mind about the Mini's i had.. lived in a apartment so they seemed to make sense.. but in the end, oh no,  I needed the BIG MACHINES.. oh to change that decision and kept the mini's...

I remember playing this game when it was new at the local Pizza Shop... The shop also had a vinyl jukebox and the song WILDFIRE by Michael Murphy was still on it...

I swear everytyime we were playing the game someone would play the song...

I still hate that song to this day when I hear it.

I don't understand why you call me sensitive. In fact, I don't understand why you post at all considering your content. I simply pointed out your ignorance so others can judge for themselves rather than discount some great games because they trust some bs spouted by someone who feigns expertise.

Yeah man....I am an expert at faking expertise...without a doubt.   Does it show that bad?

Riddle me this BATMAN.... If GALAXY is such a great pinball machine  then why did you KILL one and turn it into a Video Game?   You should have looked for a WILD FYRE to trash instead.  :dunno

You could have waited a little longer for the parts you needed to "fall out of the sky" or you could have sold it to someone who wants to play REAL pinball.

Besides,  playing pinball styled video games makes you the pinball  expert ...Right?

Again OPINIONS!!!  If it isn't my opinion,  I don't care and if it isn't your opinion,  you don't care.
