Creating a NEW thread because we now HAVE THIS GAME IN OUR ARCADE!!!!! WOWOWOWOWOWWWW!!!!
Also sorry but I am logging BACK on the forum to discuss TURDLES, there is a LOT going on in this brand new 2020 game like none other pinball I have ever experienced and I really need some TURDLE TIPS to understand what is going on.
Also since this is now the OFFICIAL DUMB ARCADE TURDLE THREAD, I'm gonna keep the top scores posted and pinned to the top of this thread (hopefully)
btw my high score is 26,853,120 (game took me like half an hour, geez) I got today. I was using Michaelangelo I guess so I don't get to be a turdle champ. (but I got #2 score on the machine right now)
also wtf Jeff how do you get a score ending in the number "3" for Leonardo that is hilarious I have never seen that in all of my pinball days, the scores always end in 0!?!?
there must be a way to get random little points in the game somewhere. Did you know that scores typically end in 0 because in the old days of EM rotating score reels, the first digit didn't have its own reel, it was just a placeholder with a 0, which would save on having to add more parts into the game. I noticed this with the 2 EM games I've owned over the years.

okay Jeff bought the game from someone who had the exact same initials as him so that he would have all of the high scores before he even played the game, I SEE.
I would like to give my own breakdown and TURDLE TIPS of which player you choose at the start and how it effects this game:
RAPHAEL (the red one): Your skill shot is the left ramp (not a hard one to hit), and the first "episode" starts as lit. This is a great advantage. The episodes are a big part of the game (can I say completing each one is almost comparable to destroying each castle in Medieval Madness???) (maybe not as many points), but you do have to complete all of the episodes to get to the final boss, and after you complete the second one you get an extra ball. So Raphael's bonus is a good one.
MICHAELANGELO (the orange one that looks yellow to me): The skill shot is both the right and left ramps??? Wow, the easiest skill shot of all of the turdles!!! Also the "Battle Again" light on the outlanes starts as lit, which rescues your ball if it falls down there (which do happen a lot). Wow, that is also a pretty huge and useful bonus. I believe both my and Jeff's highest scores were done using this turdle.
DONATELLO (the purple one): The skill shot is the center ramp. This can be a very hard shot to make, but it's do-able and gets easier with practice. The additional bonus for Donatello is huge though - the TURDLE POWER MULTIBALL starts out as lit, which is the right ramp in the game. So if you hit that right ramp right away BAD-A-BOOM you got a multiball! Huge! Jeff says he has not experienced a game like this where you can get multi-ball so fast like this. Only with Donatello though.
LEONARDO (the light bluish / teal one) Okay this turdle is the worst one. the skill shot is the Lair shot (under the top left flipper) and it is impossible to shoot for. Even if you get the angle of the shot right, it just bounces right in and out from there. The bonus is starting the next level of training, but only if you get it in that skill shot!!! This turdle is a DUD if you ask me.[/font]
