Maze
Collecting

Game Details

Excellent integration of pinball and video game. Gameplay starts in the maze, only you have no energizers to start. Dual tunnels at the bottom of the maze exit to the pinball playfield, where you hit a series of droptargets to earn energizers, advance fruits, and increase tunnel speed.

Extremely replayable. Flopped in arcades mostly because of the difficulty in keeping the thing running, since it has all the normal video game parts plus the normal pinball parts.

Bally bought Midway, which had the redistribution agreement for Pac properties in the US. Bally went into a very gray area by creating their own Pac variant, as an effort to capitalize on the Pac-Man craze.
