Hmmmm. I wonder why Galaxia has flipper buttons? Maybe Atari sold off some surplus Video Pinball cabinets?

I also suspect:
Alibaba = Ali Baba and 40 Thieves
Little Jack = Jack The Giant Killer
Moon Lander = Lunar Lander

Nice!

Here's something fun: We've found a Twin: Crash / Invader cabinet owner.

But the cabinet instruction card seems to call it "Crash" and "Intruder"!

In fact, when you squint really hard at the photo of the cocktail cabinet on your new flyer, it looks like it might say "Intruder" instead of "Invader", even though in the text it's called "Invader"!

What is it really? Who knows!

After looking at those photos I see the owner has Twin Table 2 as opposed to the first Twin Table. Unfortunately the flyer isn't much help. They show Space Invader glyphs but don't indicate whether it's "Invader" or "Intruder".

Must have been, good catch there.

And good idea for them to be used as players 1 or 2 start buttons, then plate up the plunger hole & you're good to go!



Pessimist: Oh, this can't get any worse!
Optimist: Yes, it can!
