Notes: This was the first Widebody game from Stern, although the playfield design was much narrower than the standard Widebody pinballs of the period. The typical playfield of such a game was almost 29" wide. This was only 24".

It was also the first electronic game to use 7-digit score displays. To advertise this, all four score displays simultaneously animate the numbers "1234567" during Game Over mode, followed by flashing "7777777" for three seconds, repeating it again after displaying high scores. There are no added sounds during this animation.
