I don't understand pinball. I put my quarter in, try to survive the game without losing any balls, and hopefully wrack up points along the way. I found this video from the Vox channel today and now the game makes a bit more sense to me. They breakdown how the game isn't as random as it seems to the outsider. The board and lights work like a map. Like any other arcade game, there's a science to getting good at it. Check out the video below to see more:
Are you any good at pinball? Maybe I'll take these notes to the next arcade I check out. Realistically, I probably end up button mashing again.
