Never heard of this game before.

That's the current point standings.
The person with the most points after round 12 is the 2012 Lynx HSC Champion. :)

How do you count points?



The first place score gets 11 points, 10 points for 2nd, 9 points for 3rd, 8 points for 4th, 7 points for 5th, 6 points for 6th, 5 points for 7th...
The point system is in the Lynx HSC rules thread.
This is the same point system the 5200 HSC uses and the 2600 and 7800 HSC's also used this system.

This is a pretty game, but the detailed graphics make it a bit hard to see what's going on.

What inspired Bally to make a pinball game, and what inspired them to choose these two particular tables?

There's alot of good info about Bally now Bally Technologies on it's Wikipedia page.

I don't have this cart, and I don't generally care for emulation. :) I might try this in Handy if I have time later, though.

Why are we playing Pinball Jam again? We just played it three months ago. I realize it's not the same table, but there are so many other score-able Lynx games out there. Why repeat so soon? I was thinking about working on a master list of Lynx games that would be eligible for the HSC. The all time score list might work for that, but I haven't gone through it to see if it's all-inclusive.

The music can really get annoying in this one after a little while.

The music can be turned off on the title screen.
I forget what button option 1 or option 2

Yeah, i think the game awards the same points with 3 or 5 balls.
It goes without saying, it should be easier to get higher scores with 5 balls.

That's a good question. Someone suggested Pinball Jam a few months ago and the last time it was played i was the only one who
posted a score.
If anyone wants to suggest some games PM me your list of 5 games.
I already have a list of games i was thinking about but maybe there's one that i overlooked or is more popluar than i thought.

That's on my game list spreadsheet.
Since your the first one to suggest it, we'll play Klax next month. :)
