''High Speed'' is noted for several industry firsts -- it was the first pinball with [[https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=yTpwBI4Ez9M a full theme song,]] the first Williams pinball with alpha-numeric displays, the first pinball to dynamically adjust match percentages and replay score values, the first solid-state pinball with detailed diagnostic reports, and the first game to detect and compensate for broken switches on the playfield. Even without these features, it is fondly remembered by numerous players for its adrenalin-pumping action and fast gameplay, a sterling example of why Steve Ritchie is considered "The Master of Flow". This was the most popular pinball of 1986 with over 17,000 tables sold.

A [[DigitalPinballTable video game version]] for the Nintendo GameBoy was developed by Unexpected Developments and published by Williams. Another video game version of the table is available for ''VideoGame/ThePinballArcade'', which was accidentally revealed much earlier than expected due to a [[GoodBadBugs in-game bug]] within the PC version when ''High Speed'' was originally released. Said bug also revealed that ''Pinball/JunkYard'' would be added as well, and there are files for ''[[Pinball/EightBall Eight Ball Deluxe]]'' that have yet to be used.

* WritingAroundTrademarks: The red car on the cabinet sides and the center of the playfield is clearly a Lamborghini Countach, but since it's never named in the game, nobody noticed. That the car looks different in the backglass ''is'' noticeable, though.



* DrivingStick: A variation; instead of a traditional plunger, the game uses a shifter, used to launch the ball and to change gears. To shift up, you need to build up the RPM gauge.

* HaveANiceDeath: When you drain your last ball down the outlanes, you hear a sound a car skidding and crashing. Also, when you drain your last ball normally, a sound of a car crashing plays.

Draining a ball that isn't your last one in the outlanes will play the skidding sound without the crashing sound.



* WritingAroundTrademarks: The original game used a couple of images of the Lamborghini Countach in the artwork without a license, but ''The Getaway'' is even more blatant in this regard. The red car on the backglass and playfield artwork is clearly a Lamborghini Diablo, but since it's never actually named in the game, Williams managed to get away with it.
