After the closure of Creator/SternElectronics, Gary Stern started a company called Pinstar. One of Pinstar's early products was ''Gamatron,'' a conversion kit for Creator/{{Bally}} and Stern pinball tables. ''Gamatron'' was essentially a copy of ''Flight 2000,'' down to using the same software and minor changes to accomodate a narrower playfield.

Unfortunately, ''Gamatron'' lacked many of the features that were popular in pinball games of the [[TheEighties mid-eighties,]] and only a few kits were sold.

Although it sounds very simple in theory, players found it a challenge in practice, and achieving multiball soon became a matter of pride for the best players. ''Flight 2000'' was lauded for its fast, uncomplicated, yet formidable gameplay, and it is considered one of the best games from Stern Electronics.

As Stern's first talking pinball game, ''Flight 2000'' requires the player to prepare and launch three rockets into spaceflight. This is done by hitting targets around the playfield to spell BLASTOFF, then locking a pinball into the playfield's three-stage launcher. Do this twice, then knock down the Countdown targets in reverse order. Once this is done, load the last pinball into the launcher to cycle the launch sequence and initiate three-ball multiball.
