Bally - 1993
Creature from the Black Lagoon (CFTBL) is a classic Bally game from 1993,
with a drive-in-movie theme based
on the cult 50's movie of the same name. The drive in theme is captured
flawlessly using classic 50's tunes (including 'Rock Around The Clock').
Visit the snack bar for a hot dog or popcorn and try to sneak a kiss from your
date. The main feature at the drive in is the Creature from the Black
Lagoon which the game plays some classic scenes from the film in 'dot-mation'.
Your goal if to find the Creature and Rescue the Girl in one of the most
challenging multi-ball modes ever. Once multi-ball begins, the
creature appears under the playfield in pinball's firsts, a moving hologram.
