Stranger Things & Elvira’s House Of Horrors @ Pixel Alley

Two spooky new machines from Stern have arrived at Pixel Alley!

Elvira’s House Of Horrors, the 3rd instalment of this classic pinball IP, has great art, heaps of good shots and is a lot of fun.

Stranger Things is something a little different from Stern and is dripping with atmosphere. Fans of the show will love it!

Another interesting new feature is the addition of credit card payments. This replaces  the note slot.. so its now credit card or coins only on these 2 machines.

Globe Alley

Finally a new spot for us city workers / dwellers. Globe Alley is a new(ish) dive bar in Chinatown just near the corner of Little Bourke St and Swanston St.

It’s a roomy venue with a decent beer selection and good food options. I was there early, but looks like the type of place that’ll fire up in the evenings with live music and DJs. There’s also a free pool table on offer!

Machines:
AC/DC (Stern 2012)
Getaway (Williams 1992)
Last Lap (Playmatic 1978)
Space Mission (Williams 1976)

AC/DC is bright, loud and plays well. Getaway is in good condition and plays well. Last Lap is a nostalgic look back in time and plays as you’d expect a machine from 1978 would. Space Mission was out of action at time of visit and looks like it will be taken away.

Moon Dog World

Moon Dog World has launched and could just be the best spot in Melbourne to play pinball.

Currently on site:
Willy Wonka (Jersey Jack 2019)
Jurassic Park (Stern 2019)
Guardians of the Galaxy (Stern 2017)
Ghostbusters (Stern 2016)
Game of Thrones (Stern 2016)
Star Trek (Stern 2013)
No Fear (Stern 1995)

All machines are in great condition and playing well.

The venue is HUGE, and being a brewery has a great selection of beer to sample.

Sadly the food is a bit underwhelming.. but who needs food when there’s beer and pinball on offer right!?

Jurassic Park @ Pixel Alley

There’s been another new addition to the stellar lineup down at Pixel Alley with the arrival of Jurassic Park (Stern 2019).

It’s more of the same from Stern… but that ain’t a bad thing. A solid machine, fun to play and with some challenging shots. Go check it out!

Theatre of Magic / Nugent @ Thornbury Espresso Coffee Bar

 

Stumbled on Theatre of Magic (Midway 1995) and Nugent (Stern 1978) at Thornbury Espresso Coffee Bar recently.

Didn’t manage to play them as I had to rush off to a movie next door. Anyone played these and can offer a condition report?

The cafe itself was like stepping back in time 😀

Black Knight: Sword of Rage @ Pixel Alley

A great new(ish) addition has arrived down at Pixel Alley.

Black Knight: Sword of Rage (Stern 2019) is the third in a series of classic machines designed by the great Steve Richie.

The split level play field, magna-save and of course the taunts from the Black Knight himself all return in this edition.

It’s a really fun machine with easy multi-balls and even a crazy 6 ball multi-ball possible. Even managed a decent score myself 😉
