Pinball Classics

Big Shot, Rescue 911, and Ripley’s Believe It Or Not!

November 11, 2020

For Pinball Classics, each week we highlight great premium commercial virtual pinball tables for play, either natively or via streaming, on your Legends Arcade Family device. In addition to their built-in features, these virtual pinball tables have full universal global leaderboard support thanks to the Legends Arcade Platform.

Playable via BYOG™ (Bring Your Own Game), which allows you to stream your favorite PC-based video games from PC digital distribution platforms on your Legends Arcade Family product in real-time either from one of our optimized distribution centers or for free from your own Windows PC using the ArcadeNetLink app, Big Shot, Rescue 911, and Ripley’s Believe It Or Not! are true arcade classics for anyone who loves virtual pinball.

Available for purchase via Direct2Drive (D2D) for play on Steam, Big Shot is part of the five table Gottlieb EM Pack that runs on the free The Pinball Arcade app. Big Shot features full AtGames universal global leaderboard support when played via BYOG Cloud. As long as you get a score higher than the default high score in The Pinball Arcade, you enter your initials, and the high score displays on the scoreboard, the necessary synchronization file will automatically be exported after leaving BYOG Cloud.

Big Shot was released in 1973 and tasks its players with lighting up all 15 billiard ball lights. The player must hit the ball drop targets on either side of a central bumper to light its corresponding ball light, except the 8 ball. The 8 ball is lit by either going through the middle gate or by stopping in the center pit. This billiards-themed table is particularly popular among skilled players.

Available for purchase via Direct2Drive (D2D) for play on Steam, Rescue 911 is part of the six table Gottlieb Pack 2 that runs on the free The Pinball Arcade app. Rescue 911 features full AtGames universal global leaderboard support when played via BYOG Cloud. As long as you get a score higher than the default high score in The Pinball Arcade, you enter your initials, and the high score displays on the scoreboard, the necessary synchronization file will automatically be exported after leaving BYOG Cloud.

Rescue 911 was released in 1994 to critical acclaim and features several disaster rescue scenarios like saving people from wildfires and flash floods and emergency medical missions such as delivering a parturient mother to a nearby hospital.

Available on Steam, Ripley’s Believe It Or Not! runs on the free Stern Pinball Arcade app and features full AtGames universal global leaderboard support when played via BYOG Cloud. As long as you get a score higher than the default high score in Stern Pinball Arcade, you enter your initials, and the high score displays on the scoreboard, the necessary synchronization file will automatically be exported after leaving BYOG Cloud.

Ripley’s Believe It Or Not! allows players to travel with Robert Ripley across seven continents to discover the strange, the bizarre, and the unusual! The goal was to make a pinball machine that appeals to the casual player as well as the expert, which is accomplished through a special feature aptly entitled ‘Believe it or Not.’ This multi-level rule enables the beginning player to achieve some of the game’s goals early on and earn frequent multi-ball modes, while allowing the more advanced player to extend their opportunities through better play.
