Three kitana ball lock skill shots in a row straight off the plunge is my new jam. Awesome shot, love it

DP is my fav game of all time and that shot is super satisfying and I go for it as my super skill shot every ball.
I guess you still on NPS (new pin syndrome) but DP has never faded for me and still remains the best pin Stern have made last decade IMHO.
I don’t blame them remaking them it’s a sought after pin and a thing of beauty which is amplified 10 fold if you like the theme.
Easily the best NIB I have ever bought and so glad I went LE flavour. That said it’s great in any flavour and one of the best pros out there too.

Yeah I'm deep in the honeymoon phase Col and I don't understand the rules properly yet but so far it's pretty great. I love the music and call outs, lovely looking game as well. It definitely shoots like a Gomez, totally its own thing. I want an Avengers next but this should more than tide me over in the meantime!

Someone give me a run down of the rules. Fight the 3 dudes. Add team mates by hitting certain shots. Disco mode on the left spinner. Chimichongas on the right orbit to light quests? What else do they do aside from light the two quests? Wtf are diamonds and how do you get them/what do they do? What are the 3 items it shows you a running count of when you drain? Ninja stars etc. How do you light playfield multipliers? What is that snikt target for exactly and how do you hit it consistently? Combo's? Ninja modes? Help a brother out.

I try to assemble my "team" first which makes defeating the foes easier. I start with Juggernaut and use the mini-Deadpool multi-ball to help me out. I then go for Mystique and finally Sabertooth.

When I activated the quest mode I prefer to take on T-Rex rather than Megalodon, purely because I think it's easier.

Disco multi-ball is a nice little mode with a fair amount of points on offer. Continually shoot the left hand spinner to activate the mode.

The X multipliers is activated (I think) by hitting the Snikt target but only counts if it pushes the ball up the katana ramp.

Guys do us a favour, can you post pictures of your snikt targets (ooo errr). Just double-checking that mine is aligned optimally.

Thanks dude. Mine is identical. Man that snikt bank shot up the Kitana ramp is tough!

I straightened mine up (when I had DP) - definitely made a difference, easy to do in minutes. Just bare in mind it’s a tricky shot anyway.

Early thoughts are this game is awesome! Seems way easier and massively different next to Jurassic Park, not necessarily a bad thing depending on mood. Pretty in love with the kitana shot, got it dialed in perfectly. The animation when you defeat the t-rex slays me. Fun game. Oh and the Tilt champion high score should be on all pins, genius move. Chimichangas for all

Holy **** I just discovered the Ninjapocalypse combo. Right orbit and boom straight into the kitana. Proper satisfying! Love it

You had Mech Suit Multiball yet?

I have, so awesome. It's not a knock on the game at all but it seems quite player friendly with regards to drains, it's like the exact opposite of Ghostbusters.

Most of my Kitana shots fail to go up the Kitana ramp (from the RHS loop not the angled target). Am I doing something wrong or do I need to make an adjustment?

Yes mate there are two things you can do. Firstly play with the pitch of the game. Start at 6.5 and work your way to 7.0. That can make a big difference.

Second. Adjust the guide at the exit of the RHS loop (next to the pops). Like this;

More on Pinside but those two things should make a huge difference.

LMFAO at the Super Jackpot callout in Ninja Multiball (50 odd seconds into this;)


Too funny man. I managed to get through all of the baddies except the kraken/shark thing and started on the second run with Sauron helping each out. Is there more levels after those for each of the baddies or is that the lot?

Have people put washers under the katana metal guide as suggested on pinside? If you did has it stopped chipping? If you didn't is your playfield holding up ok under there? Just planning for my DP that may turn up some time next year 😆 I may or may not have already ordered some mods too...
