That’s Wack Pinball Machine
When a TV show or Movie, usually a comedy, abandons its usual format and spends most of the episode or movie as a parody of another show, book, television show, movie, or genre. Popular TV shows that we all grew up on are always the most targeted for this format, as they’re recognizable by everybody. It is usually revealed that the whole thing was just a dream or fantasy, or a lengthy series of events will be required to set up the parody. We want to take this concept one step further and bring all the old TV show parodies into the pinball world for all the players to remember.
Unique Pinball Concept
For the most part, television stays with us, and for many of us, the shows we watch become part of the fabric of who we are. Our choices, tastes, and opinions are all reflected in what we watch. But as time moves on and continues propelling us forward, we sometimes forget details that were once so clear…like the names of old TV shows we used to watch all. It happens to us all; we each have those shows we definitely remember watching, but we don’t necessarily remember what they were called. Maybe we can vividly recall a storyline, or a certain character or plot point — some major element tied to the show that has stayed with us through the years — but when we try to remember what the name of the damn thing was, all our memories conjure is a flurry of scenes and images, until now!!.
