** The 50 Million mode challenges the player to perform 3-Way Combos on the Heartbeat Ramp, the left loop, and the right loop in quick succession.
* DifficultySpike: The rules no longer contain the left ramp-fest the original is known for (limited only to multiball, thankfully). Dutch Pinball gave the rest of the shots the needed attention, and it's not easy to reach the late-game features anymore.



* ShoutOut: The "[[Pinball/CreatureFromTheBlackLagoon Move Your]] Shuttle" mode.

**
The "[[Pinball/CreatureFromTheBlackLagoon Move Your]] Shuttle" mode.Your Shuttle]]" mode.
** To the late Creator/PythonAnghelo. So much so that Dutch named a mode, Planet Pythonia, after him.
** The Special mode is a callback to Pinball/JackBot, with Pin*Bot controlling the slot machine reels.


Added DiffLines:

* StuffBlowingUp: Notably in the animations during normal gameplay and certain modes.
* VideoMode: Spell Pin*Bot when locks aren't ready to light it at the scoop. Once activated, control the vehicle on a grid and make it go across the finish line, collecting coins along the way.
* WizardMode: Two of them.
** Metamorphosis Multiball: Complete both "phases" of multiball (getting the shuttle to Planet Pin*Bot, followed by completely activating the Bride), then advance her heartbeat to maximum to achieve this. This is a timed multiball frenzy with all major shots lit for Jackpots, depending on how many balls are in play.
** Big Wheel Billion: All other wheel modes must be played first, including the other 5 Big Wheel modes and any 6 Small Wheel modes. There is a 60 second timer where one must make each shot twice (appearing in sets, one shot for each slot on the wheel). The heartbeat ramp is always last when the second set lights. The heart beating in the background intensifies this experience.

* [[BecomeARealBoy Become a Real Woman]]: The goal of multiball is to help the Bride transform into a human.

* GoldenSnitch[=/=]PinballScoring: Shooting both balls onto the Bride's face during her human form spins the Big Wheel, and one of the prizes is the chance for a billion-point shot... in a game that typically scores in the millions. The game even maintains a separate "Billionaires' Club" high score table to segregate players who made the shot from those who didn't.[[note]]The other values for the Big Wheel are 1M, 5M, 10M, 50M,
and a special reward based on operator settings (an [[OneUp extra ball]] in the ''[[VideoGame/ThePinballArcade Pinball Arcade]]'' version.[[/note]]

** Also applies in order to activate extra balls; it takes at least thirteen shots outside of multiball just to turn an Extra Ball light on.


Added DiffLines:

* OneUp: Although extra balls can be awarded randomly by the Small Wheel shot, earning extra balls with regularity [[LevelGrinding requires at least thirteen non-multiball shots to the left ramp]] just to turn on an Extra Ball light in the inlanes and outlanes. Rolling over the lit switch rewards it.


Added DiffLines:

* WhatTheHellPlayer: Get a bit too aggressive with jostling the table, the Bride sternly says, "Watch it!"

** One of the loop shots feeds directly to the right inlane. This shot can be made repeatedly from the right flipper for 1,000,000 points each time, and persistent enough players can find themselves completing a 10-loop combo and scoring the Backdoor Billion.
* {{Cap}}: The score rolls over at the 10 billion point threshold.

* ScoreMultiplier: The SkillShot multiplier increases each time a ball is fed back to the plunger; the multiplier only resets to 1x if a player doesn't see "Same Builder Shoot Again" on the score display after a drain.



* SignatureLine: "My God, she's alive!"
* SkillShot: Launched balls go into one of five slots. The highest value (200,000 points) is right behind the lowest value (25,000), so a slight miscalculation yields the lowest bonus.

* PinballScoring: Largely averted. Rumor has it that a NintendoHard WizardMode must be completed to get the billion points on the big wheel.

* SkillShot: Lights will strobe over the skill shot holes, and it will stop once the ball is plunged. If the ball lands in the hole the light is over, it will be a Super Skill Shot and five times its base value will be awarded.
