Another groovy little gem from @ruckage. This one used to be hosted at our defunct daughter site Pinball-Originals, so I'm restoring it here.

I find the game an interesting little challenge in multi-tasking, as it's easy to lose the ball while trying to simultaneously rack up points in the video sub-game. There's also no center pin where you'd normally expect one, given the game's "SDTM!" aspect. Aside from those, the biggest challenge is surely in getting the snake-shaped collector opened at the top of the screen, then hitting the shot before the ball drains. Can you pull it off? :-D --Ike

Note: I've taken the liberty of adding @GeorgeH's Dynamic Flippers (BAM required) as a variant included with the download. I feel it's a clear step up, but see what you think.

INSTRUCTIONS:​
- Hit targets and triggers to make the bubbles drop.
- Move "Bob" using the flipper keys to catch the bubbles.
- Bubbles at the edge of the screen are worth more points, but move faster.
- Open the gate by hitting all triggers between the guide lanes at the top of the playfield.
- Even when a ball is lost you can still collect the bubbles that are falling for extra points.

    @Free Bally!, Pirates are often depicted with eye patches in popular culture, but the reasons for this vary. Here are a few possible explanations:

    1. **Injury**: The most straightforward reason a pirate might wear an eye patch is that they lost an eye due to injury. Pirate battles, sword fights, and the general hazards of seafaring life could easily lead to eye injuries, necessitating an eye patch.

    2. **Myth and Stereotype**: The image of a pirate with an eye patch has become a stereotype perpetuated by movies, books, and other forms of media. It's part of the romanticized pirate image that includes peg legs, hooks for hands, and parrots on shoulders.

    3. **Preserving Night Vision**: A more interesting and practical theory suggests that pirates wore eye patches to keep one eye adapted to the dark. When moving between the bright deck and the dark below decks, a pirate could switch the patch from one eye to the other. The eye that was covered
