Terminator 2 : Judgement Day Pinball Machine

Posted by Jess 24 AUGUST 2015

The Terminator 2 pinball machine by Williams is based on one of the most memorable movies of the 1990’s, Terminator 2 : Judgement Day. The machine features Arnold Schwarzenegger’s likeness and voice from the movie, the first ever autoplunger in pinball and a Terminator endoskeleton skull, making it a big hit with pinball fanatics and fans of the movie as well. 

Williams was founded in 1943 by Harry Williams, the manufacturer started out making fortune telling machines and pinball machines but then expanded to also make coin-operated arcade games in 1973. The subsequent Williams pinball machines are now looked back on as some of the best pinball games ever made.

Terminator 2 is well liked because the play field is simple in style, allowing the player to have a fast and flowing game whilst making it easy to keep the ball alive. The gun style autoplunger replaces the original style plunger with the chance to earn a trigger skill shot by pulling the trigger at the right time to hit a moving target on the 5 bank drop targets. The Terminator 2 pinball machine also has one of the first Dot Matrix Displays, which enables a short video game mode. The game consists of Terminators which must be killed by moving a cross hair target left and right by using the left and right flipper buttons. The video game is over when all of the Terminators are killed which gives you a bonus or when the player is shot 3 times by the Terminator. 

The graphics on the Terminator 2 pinball machine are really vibrant, bold and focus on the main themes from the film, making it an eye catching piece for any games room. The pinball machine was released shortly after the hit film and unsurprisingly, the game was just as popular making it the best selling pinball in 1991 with over 15,000 machines being sold. 

Much like the film, the game is still popular among pinball players and film fans 24 years later and is still a highly sought after machine. Whether you remember this machine when it was first in circulation or if you love the Terminator films, we’re sure you’ll enjoy this classic pinball machine, especially in the light of the new Terminator Genisys film.
