Description

Revenge from Mars is a pinball machine designed by George Gomez and manufactured by Williams Electronics Games (under the Bally label) in 1999. It is the sequel to the similarly themed Attack from Mars.

This game was the first to use the Williams Pinball 2000 system that overlays interactive video onto the mechanical playfield (see also Star Wars Episode I).

An additional first was the default absence of a replay/special. Instead of awarding the player a free game when reaching a certain number of points, it was decided to rather award extra balls (default at 50 million and 200 million). This default behaviour can be changed by the operator though. Additionally the match sequence at the end of a pinball game (a random free play award) can be disabled. This was originally disabled in 1994’s Road Show pinball machine by default, too, but was since enabled by default again.
