Gottlieb's Central Park

A few months ago I was reading some comments and somebody said that we never review older pinball machines. So to whoever said that, today we're going back to April of 1966 to check out Gottlieb's classic pinball, Central Park! This game was a big hit when it was released and it made itself onto Farsight's Pinball Arcade App. Unlike the app you have the option to use the manual ball elevator to put in multiple balls into the table. For some reason on the older games they don't give you that option. Sure you waste your five turns faster, but it's fun to get some OLD multiball action.

Since this game was made in 1966 there really isn't much to talk about in terms of modes and gameplay. Pretty much try to keep the ball in play, get the rollovers to get a huge bonus out of the two stand up targets in the middle and that's about it. Every 100 points the little monkey on the backbox will move and ring the big bell for a really loud chime. Other then that it's classic old school pinball from the 1960's. Big thanks to everybody at the Pinball Hall of Fame in Las Vegas for keeping this and all of the other classics alive for future generations of players!
