This is a striking table both art-wise and layout-wise. I want to say the YES tuneage is mostly a good fit. At the same time, it's a tricky, challenging table with plenty of traps, but also a few unusual ways to make heroic shots.

While the layout sort of hearkens back to 80's Bally tables, everything is arranged a bit differently here, requiring the player to spend a number of games getting to know this table... what to do and what not to. For all these reasons, I'd note this one as a game for strong players looking to persevere through a good, puzzle-ish challenge. Others will probably get quickly frustrated with this game.

Btw-- can't say I'm a real big fan of the "foghorn" nudge sound, given that nudging is all but essential in this game. At the same time, there's a certain comedic value to it that only @sphere could have come up. --@Isaac Sauvage
