Earthshaker is a classic pinball game which Williams fitted with a rumble motor, much like those in modern force-feedback controllers. Upon capture of two pinballs in the playfield, the game would exclaim "EARTHSHAKER!!!" and the entire pinball game would rumble. A bonus play mode then follows, releasing three balls onto the playfield, and ending when all three go out of play.

Earthshaker was produced by Williams Electronic Games, Inc. (WMS, 1985-2000) in 1989.
