Added DiffLines:

* NintendoHard: This game is a notorious drain monster, as even making a shot successfully tends to either send the ball screaming back down towards the flippers or induce lateral motion, making the ball more likely to go into one of the outlanes. Those who aren't good at nudging will not do well.

* MachineMonotone: Unlike ''Eight Ball Deluxe'', the voice clips used by ''Eight Ball Champ'' are notably more robotic, elevating the game to MostAnnoyingSound for many players.
* MadLibsDialogue: Recycled from ''Eight Ball Deluxe'', but not as well done due to the MachineMonotone.

''Eight Ball Deluxe'' took advantage of the technological advancements of the day, offering a more complex set of rules and digitized voice clips. While it was not a record-breaker like the original, it was still a hit. Bally offered a "Limited Edition" a year later, and re-released the original in 1984; they featured different backbox designs and art, but the playfield remained the same.
