-> ''"Forget everything you knew about {{pinball}}. This is something entirely different. Entirely better. It's ''Revenge From Mars,'' the first-ever game to utilize the technology of [[{{Trope 2000}} Pinball 2000.]]"''

''Revenge from Mars'' is the sequel to ''Pinball/AttackFromMars'', released in January 1999 by Creator/WilliamsElectronics (being the final pinball game released under the Bally label). It was designed by veteran arcade game creator Creator/GeorgeGomez, whose previous VideoGames include ''VideoGame/SpyHunter'' and ''{{VideoGame/Tron}}'', with artwork by Creator/GregFreres and Creator/JohnYoussi, and programming by Creator/KeithJohnson.

It was notable for being the first of the two ill-fated "[[{{Trope 2000}} Pinball 2000]]" games (the other being ''Pinball/StarWarsEpisodeI''), which utilized digital graphics projected over the playfield to create an interesting psuedo-3D illusion of immersion. The format of the game is also different from its predecessor: you are given a choice of nine missions in three categories to tackle.

The making of the game is profiled in the documentary ''[[Film/TiltTheBattleToSavePinball Tilt: The Battle to Save Pinball]]''
