Indiana Jones: The Pinball Adventure Pinball Machine

pinball machine

In 1993 Williams released Indiana Jones: The Pinball Adventure to capitalize on the Indiana Jones film franchise, which included Raiders of the Lost Ark (1981), Indiana Jones and the Temple of Doom (1984), and Indiana Jones and the Last Crusade (1989). Designed by Mark Ritchie and Doug Watson, the game featured CD-quality sound and included custom-recorded speech from actor Jonathan Rhys-Davies (Sallah). The game also included an innovative upper playfield that players could tilt side to side to control the pinball. Williams sold more than 12,700 units, making it among the most popular Williams pinball machines of the 1990s. The history of pinball dates back to 18th-century Europe; many similar games gradually evolved from court games--games played with balls upon a playing surface, including bowls and even golf. Table versions, it seems, were inevitable inventions to make these games portable and to bring them indoors. What we recognize as pinball evolved in America during the 20th century. The year 1947 saw the invention of the "flipper," which added a whole new dimension to the game. In the 1960s, smaller and cheaper home versions were commonly available
