collector classic... ATLANTIS!
GORGEOUS LOW-PLAY EXAMPLE with ORIGINAL PAINT!
A favorite 70's Gottlieb drop-target classic...
This game was produced in 1975 by Gottlieb, creator of the most popular
mechanical pinball machines on the planet! Atlantis is considered to be one of
the most desirable and collectable single-player "wedgehead" style machines ever created.
Atlantis is also one of the last few mechanical pinball machines built by
Gottlieb. Around 1976, Gottlieb and all other pinball manufacturers started switching
over to digital technology, forever changing the sights, sounds and gameplay
of pinball machines as we knew them. This game was incredibly popular when new due to the classic Gottlieb
drop-target style gameplay along with the ever-popular nautical theme. This game was created when Gottlieb was the king of the
arcades, bowling alleys and corner stores. No one could hold a candle to
a Gottlieb mechanical pinball machine... they were simply the king of the hill!
Atlantis was one of Gottlieb's greatest single player machines of
all time and is generally close to the top of any mechanical pinball machine
collectors favorite game lists. Anyone that played pinball machines in
the 70's has usually seen and played Atlantis. It's a timeless classic and one
of our most requested games.
You'll love the old-fashioned chime box sounds that take you back to a simpler time in all of our lives. A time when pinball was the king of the arcade and boardwalk. A time before those confounded electronic video games came about! This game has many of the classic features that made Gottlieb great. Everyone's favorite feature on this game is the huge bank of drop targets at the left side of the field. The targets are not only used to score 500 points, but when two adjacent targets are dropped with a single hit, you get a big score of 5,000 points! Drop all of the targets to go for bigger points and SPECIALS! There is also a set of two roll-down lanes at the right side of the field. Complete the rollover sequence for more points and a top score! All of the classic elements such as pop-bumpers, slingshots, rollovers, stationary targets and drop-targets give this playfield a classic playing and vintage feel that will keep you entertained and challenged for hours at a time. Most pinball enthusiasts agree that Gottlieb made the best playing single-level playfield designs and this game is one of the very best. The classic and family-friendly theme goes great in any home gameroom!
It becomes more and more difficult to find nice examples of 70's arcade games as time marches onward, particularly the more popular titles. This game was used in public only briefly and went into a private home very early in it's life. It is one beautiful example of vintage arcade coolness! The playfield on this game is in absolutely fabulous condition and is not a reproduction field. The plastics are original Gottlieb and not reproductions. Brand new drop-targets, posts, lane guides, pop-bumper and flipper parts have been installed. The screen-painted backglass is a pristine condition original and is not a reproduction piece.
