DescriptionThis table pack for Pinball Arcade contains two tables:
- Creature from the Black Lagoon (Bally, 1992): designed by John Trudeau (aka Dr. Flash), this table, while having the license of the Universal Studios movie of the same name, isn't necessarily an adaptation of it, but it plays a part in the concept. The table itself takes place in a 1950s drive-in theater, that's showing said movie, in which you and a date get ready to watch it. The objective is to spell the word F-I-L-M by doing certain tasks (spelling P-A-I-D and K-I-S-S, opening the snackbar, and shooting the "Slide" target), which then starts the film, and Multiball: find and rescue the girl that the Creature kidnapped, awarding several points. This table features several characteristics, such as a "3D" hologram of the Creature on the center of the table and many game modes. This also features a selection of 1950s songs (due to licensing issues, though, some of them were removed from this version). Approximately 7800 units were originally produced.
- Black Knight (Williams, 1980): designed by Steve Ritchie (Firepower, High Speed, Star Trek: The Next Generation, as well as the voice of Shao Kahn from the Mortal Kombat series), this table involves defeating the titular Knight (voiced by Ritchie himself) by hitting each of the drop targets a specific amount of times. This table featured many pinball firsts, such as an additional, top-level playfield with two additional flippers, the "Magna-Save" (additional buttons on the side that, when the ball was near the specific outlane, activated a magnet that brought the ball back onto the playfield) and a "Bonus Ball" mode, giving the player with the highest score on games with 2 or more players additional seconds of play after losing the final ball. It was followed in 1989 by Black Knight 2000, which expanded more on the original table and has what is considered one of the best soundtracks in a pinball game. Approximately 13000 units were originally produced.
