Wild Ride has the most modern theme of any sideshooter I have made. This release is dedicated to Stan C. Wade, or Bluto, as he was known as. Bluto disliked sideshooters so much that he PMd me saying they weren’t real pinball, and to stop making them.

While sideshooters are thought of as simple children’s toys, they can be challenging fun. I have added sounds that will remind you of warm days having fun at the amusement park. To add to the challenge, I have added 3 diverters near the center of the game, to encourage nudging. If you look closely, you can spot them. Because of the dirverters the ball is just as likely to be a miss, or hit the lower scoring cups at the top of the game as it is to land in the big point cups below.

S begins a game, the shift keys modify the launch speed, and the plunger launches the ball. Press R for rules and information. Thanks to Grizz for designing a backdrop for me. I liked it so much I have made a dozen of them in various colors, one which I've used for Wild Ride.
