Superman Pinball By Atari 1979 at www.pinballrebel.com
A great game by Steve Ritchie. It is one of his first pinball
designs. Steve actually had background sound wired up to play in
Superman but Atari management were not interested. When Steve
when to work at Williams he put that feature into Flash
which was his first pinball game at the company
Although Atari pinball machines has score displays in the back all of
the electronic were in the bottom on the cabinet.
Here you can see a great artwork job which is something that
Atari was known for in their arcade line.
The playfield layout is a good for a first attempt.
The side artwork features a flying Superman. The start button was
also used on many Atari arcade games.
A view of the playfield.
