Darling, the 1973 release by Williams, has little to set it apart. With a classic electro-mechanical setup, Darling has mechanical score keepers, one set of flippers, two bumpers and not much else. Five balls in a closed loop dominate the playfield. The backglass shows two lovely dancing ladies in ancient Babylonian garb before a seated king. Two dazed male onlookers share the scene. As usual with pinball art, little heed is gven to historical accuracy as the art also mixes in elements of the unrelated cultures of Egypt and Mesopotamia.
