Lost World

Lost World was released in August of 1978. It was designed by Gary Gayton. The art work was done by Paul Faris (who later did Paragon).

This is a simple one ball game with a goal of hitting the A-B-C-D-E-F targets over and over again. There are a few other features on the playfield to add interest, including 3 pop bumpers, 2 kickouts, a captive ball and a spinner.

Lost World holds several "first time ever in pinball" features. It was the first to use the second generation curcuit board, it was the forst pinball machine to use electronic sounds and the first to use a "photographic" backglass. A very historic pin.

The Flip Flags in the upper right of the playfield are pretty cool.
