Revenge from Mars

1999, Williams Electronics

Revenge from Mars was one of only two tables created using the "Pinball 2000" model, which was itself created in a futile attempt to redefine pinball for a video game-obsessed populace. In it and its counterpart, which was based on Star Wars Episode 1: The Phantom Menace (Do we have to say it? No wonder it failed..), players aimed the ball at holographic targets.

Unfortunately, that same populace didn't bite, and pinball largely went the way of the dodo—taking Williams Electronics, which had already absorbed other pinball manufacturers Midway and Bally, with it.
