If you're not a sports fan, how about taking a three-hour sightseeing tour aboard the S.S. Minnow? The entire cast of the famous TV show is on hand for Bally's new Gilligan's Island pinball game. You can join the castaways on their uncharted desert isle as they scamper to gather the ingredients of the Professor's Secret Formula Lava Seltzer to settle the stomach of Kona, the volcano god.
Smack the ball around the play- field to collect pineapples, sea shells, bananas, rope, poached turtle eggs, and a shrunken head.
Mix well, then send Gilligan on a wild jungle run to deliver the potion to Kona. If you're good, you can score 50 million points along the way.
Gilligan's Island features the digitized voices of Gilligan...the Skipper, too...the millionaire, and his wife...the movie star...the Professor and Mary Ann! The machine also displays their faces and other special effects on a dot-matrix panel just below the backglass. In addition to the voice samples taken from the TV show, Bob Denver (Gilligan) recorded dialogue specifically for the game. And like the TV show, the game is very silly and an awful lot of fun.
