Arcade Classic... SINBAD!
This is the RARE electro-mechanical version!
The last of the great mechanical games...
This game was produced in 1978 by Gottlieb, creator of the most popular pinball machines on the planet! This game was incredibly popular when new due to the classic Gottlieb
drop-target style gameplay and also due to the incredibly popular theme from
the 70's. This game was actually
created when Gottlieb was switching over from mechanical to digital based
games and was one of the very last Gottlieb mechanical pinball games.
It's very easy to find the digital version of this game as it was manufactured
in the tens of thousands, but the mechanical version is extremely hard to find
as they made LESS THAN ONE THOUSAND of these. This game was also one of Gottlieb's
very best selling titles of the late 70's and
everyone LOVES it! I don't know anyone who doesn't like the simplicity
of a classic Gottlieb drop-target game with it's ruleset that's easy to
understand, yet very difficult to master. The fabulous artwork on this game makes it a delight to look at, even when you're not playing
You'll love the old-school chimebox in this game which was a standard in the mechanical games, and was soon lost to digital sound-effects shortly after this game was made. This game has all of the classic features that made Gottlieb great. Everyone's favorite feature on pinball macines is the drop target and this game has TEN to shoot for! Drop your target banks to light the top rollovers for bonus points, extra balls and SPECIALS! One extra great feature that the mechanical version of Sinbad has is the DOUBLE-BONUS feature which was eliminated on the digital version and replaced with multiplier style scoring. This game also features TWO sets of DOUBLE-FLIPPERS! From the banks of drop targets, to the stationary targets, to the pop bumpers, rollovers and center spinner, this playfield has a fast playing and well-thought design 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 timeless. This classic and family-friendly theme goes great in any home gameroom!
