Game Introduction

Super Stike is your standard bowling game. Flash is standard bowling with the twist of getting extra points for knocking down all the pins (including a spare) within a time (counter counts 50, 100, 200, back to 50...on). Stike or Die is that you must Stike or you do not get points. If I did not mention this in the above, When you roll the ball into the playing sensor it knocks down "pins" on the screen.

Trivia

After talking with the Senior Tech at Grand Products, he said that the game is no longer supported. Not only that but when they moved their company, they didn't keep any of the machines. All were given to employees, that were left over.

Cabinet Information

Wood paneling. The play field looks very similiar to a miniture bowling alley.

Conversion

From what I see on the PCB (which incidentily is labeled SlickShot with a Sticker of Super Strike over it) the hardware is the same except a wire is connected across from the Z80 to the sound processor. Also the playfield must be changed out, for it to be a SlickShot. I would also speculate that you would need the short cue stick.
