Pinball Fever: When Spanish Eyes are Smilin'



Aside from being a big fan of classic video games, I'm also a big fan of pinball machines. They kinda go hand in hand. I'll start to show some of my favorite pinball machines on here, so I might as well start with what might be my all-time favorite. 1972's "Spanish Eyes" was originally released in a smaller quantity as "Granada" but with very similar, practically identical, artwork. It's a great mix of art deco, '70s funk, and subtle Spanish flair. If anyone knows about a copy for sale in the Twin Cities area, please HOLLER.

Are there not 10000 of them already?!?!? My girlfriend and I are trying to design the million dollar iphone application... could that be it?

There are, I think, but I haven't found one that looks really good. But I'm talking about a pinball app that looks like THAT. You know, Miked out. I would love to see what you'd come up with in laying out a pinball table!

My friends at Sell!Sell! have a great fully working 70's KISS pinball machine in their studio that's pretty cool
