PAPA 14 Classics Coverage on Time Fantasy

Joe and Julie Schober offer commentary on Time Fantasy, one of the strangest machines to come off the line at Williams in the 1980’s. Competing in this matchup are Keith Elwin, Steve Bowden, Trent Augenstein, and Phil Birnbaum.

    “Snail Time” = Super Mario’s invincible star.

    At 6:30, Trent hits the TIME letters during Snail Time because the shot is also lit for “50k”. This happens on a seemingly random or repeated basis. Since playfield is multiplied at 4x when it happens, Trent earns 200,000 for this shot.

    Additionally, completions of 1-2-3-4-5 are awarded at the NEW multiplier, not the old: Trent earns 240,000 for a completion (4 x 60,000) when I thought it would be 180,000. That last-second drain at the end of Trent’s Snail Time cost him 450,000 (5 x 90,000).

    Thanks Joe and Julie! Snail time rules!

    Actually I am an idiot: Trent earned 180,000 for the 3x completion. I thought his score went from 215,000 to 455,000 when it was actually 275,000 (and the camera angle covered the top line of the display).

    Someone needs to rig up a Time Fantasy with the Super Mario star music during Snail Time…

    Generally I will try alley-passing the lit inlanes to build snail time up to 99. For whatever reason the right inlane was not allowing it. But it did allow a very safe pass so I went with it still even though that was not my original intent.
