Description

Atlantis is an undersea themed 5-ball (2 player alternating, 2 games for a quarter) pinball game. The table is sea green with Neptune with a trident, and fish graphics. It has three bumpers at the top of the table, and one or two more on the left side, along with a "Bonus"/"Specials" target on the left, (and maybe a small channel, or another target on the left, I'm not sure.) There are two channels down the right side of the table, with 5 segments in each and a small bump pin at the end of each segment. Each segment is numbered, 1 through 10, not in order, and as the ball went through each segment in consecutive order, the segment would light. When all the segments were lit, the "Specials" target on the left side of the table would light. Hitting this lit target would win a game. The target remained lit, so it was possible to win a lot of games. The central part of the table may have had a couple of bumpers, but it was pretty uncluttered. Points were scored in the 10,000 (5 digit) range, not 1,000 (4 digit) or 100,000 or (6 digit). I don't remember how many points it took to win a game, as I generally won games on Specials.
