Johnny Mnemonic Pinball Machine

pinball machine

In 1995, Williams released Johnny Mnemonic, a pinball machine based on the 1995 science fiction action film of the same name. Designer George Gomez had been inspired by author William Gibson’s original cyberpunk short story Johnny Mnemonic, but based the game and its features, such as a player-controlled glove that used a magnet to lift the ball off the playfield, on the film’s assets. Unfortunately, the film was a box office failure, and its poor showing affected sales of the game. Williams produced 2,756 units.
