Goodbye, Hyperball

Shop Notes

We sent another long-time favorite on its way this past month, too, as we bid adieu to Hyperball. This rapid-fire pinball gun game is tons of fun to play, and we loved the powdercoated legs on it.
Check it out!

Williams came out with Hyperball in 1981 and produced around 5,000 of the games. (IPDB)

The company originally planned to make some 50,000 of the machines, but it turned out the world wasn’t ready for quite that much coolness. The production run was scaled back significantly.

In this flipperless game, players use a hypercannon to fire up to 250 3/4-inch balls per minute at targets located around the outer edge of the playfield.

We changed out the lights to LEDs, and added some special touches too, including red and yellow alternating post sleeves. (You can see them really well in the previous picture.)

Enjoy the game, Dave. Now you’re one of the cool kids!
