Hercules was a pinball machine of herculean proportions. The ball was somewhere between a baseball and a softball in size. It took two coins to operate and gave you sounds and effects befitting its name. If pinball was to be replaced by computer games, Hercules was a thunderous roar to make an exit with.

Hercules was produced by Atari in 1979.
