You'll love the vintage electronic sounds of this game as you try to line up your X's and O's on the center grid. The premise of the game is quite simple, but accomplishing the goal is immensely challenging to say the least. You'll want to fill a line in the grid by hitting the nine different targets at center field which correspond to the spaces in the grid. BUT... the value of the targets can change from X's to O's at different times of play. Think you're about to complete a row of X's? Hit a rollover or switch at an inopportune moment and the targets change to the opposite character and you start ruining the pattern you've started! It can be maddening, but also extremely rewarding if you can get it right. Your ultimate goal is to fill the entire grid with the same character and you'll get HUGE POINTS! There are other great features on this field such as a row of DROP-TARGETS at the top with their own MINI-FLIPPER. Check out the crazy curved ball passages at the upper left of the field. There's also a captive KICK-OUT SAUCER at the right side outlane where you get big bonus points if you can nudge the ball in there before it drains. The whole playfield is loaded with all of the of the classic playfield elements such as a stationary targets, drop-targets, roll-overs, slingshots, pop-bumpers and more! Adults and children alike go crazy for this game! Pinball enthusiasts will agree that this game is a fantastic player and the popular theme and fabulous artwork goes great in any home gameroom!
