Description official descriptions

The follow-up to The Web features a single but a very complex table. You have a 3D view of the table, with 4 different viewpoints. Your ultimate point-scoring goal is to travel through time by collecting crystals. The game takes in Roman, Prehistoric and Futuristic settings, as well as the present-day world.

There is a lot of secret stuff to discover. Many videos are shown in the dot matrix display above the table. The developers also included a preview mode, that lets you zoom into special areas of the table.

One of the all time best

The Good
There is a mission, in time, to complete by collecting crystals and moving across four time lines. What makes this game excellent is that four players (in challenge mode) can all be playing the same game while competing against each other, thereby giving a single player a game with a four-time better chance to complete all of the missions (and you'll need it). Different table views, great response, a beginner's mode and even a cool video mode makes this a hard to top classic.

The Bad
There's nothing I dislike about this game.

The Bottom Line
Pro Pinball has set the standard to which others should aspire. A natural evolutionary next step up from "The Web", I can only look forward to trying their other pinball games. I'd LOVE to walk into a bar someday and see this table in real life. It's that good.
