"Welcome to my home."Bram Stoker's Dracula
is a 1993 pinball game based on the 1992 film of the same name
by Williams Electronics
. It is designed by Barry Oursler
The goal is simple; kill Dracula, kill his concubines, kill his werewolves, destroy his rats, scare his bats, and overcome Dracula's Mist. It's pretty standard pinball fare, with video modes
, ball locks (known as Castle and Coffin Locks), and other such pleasantries. Its main gimmick was the multiballs with three variations on it such as "Multi-Multiball" and "Mist Multiball", where a magnet would drag the ball across the field until it was knocked loose by another to start it. Even so, it's held in high regard by many players for its gameplay, which manages to be fast, simple, yet deep all at the same time, requiring true mastery for high scores.
The game was also known for being for "loop friendly", since you could get an infinite loop by shooting it into a certain spot. In keeping with the film, the dot matrix was done in a unique red coloring. You can see a playthrough of it here
