Full Detail

One of two games, the other being “300,” that use a backglass-held plastic ball rail to track your accumulated bonus. In each case, bonus max is 10,000 [ten balls]. Like 300, it has a mystery saucer that adds 1, 2 or 3 bonus advances, subject to the bonus max of ten.

There’s a ball save gate on the right outlane, activated by getting the right side lane in the mid-upper playfield. You can’t shoot it directly, but you can try to nudge the ball into it.

The two standup add bonus targets above the return lanes are not worth shooting at. You should also avoid hitting the bumpers directly from the flippers, other than a grazing hit on the left edge of the left bumper.

Double bonus is scored on the last ball but cannot be lit on other balls.
