western classic... BRONCO!
Get ready to head out to the Wild West with... BRONCO!
This game was produced in 1977 by Gottlieb, creator of the most popular
mechanical pinball machines on the planet! Bronco was one
of the very last mechanical games to be produced by Gottlieb. Shortly
after 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 is incredibly popular due to the classic Gottlieb
drop-target style gameplay along with the ever-popular Western 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!
Anyone that played pinball machines in
the 70's has seen and played Bronco and it's simply a timeless classic!
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 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 set of 3 horse head drop-targets at center field. Each target you knock down will increase the value of the top two captive holes. Knock them all down and the left and right ball catchers at center field will randomly light up for an EXTRA BALL! Try to complete the A-B-C rollover sequence to increase your end bonus to 2X value. Manage to do it on your last ball and your end bonus will go to 4X value for a possible 60,000 bonus points! Complete both the target bank AND the rollovers to light the playfield SPECIAL! All of elements on the playfield such as the pop-bumpers, drop-targets, kickout holes and rollovers give this playfield a classic playing 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!
