''Krull's'' most notable trait is its lower-level playfield; while earlier games like ''Pinball/BlackHole'' and ''Pinball/HauntedHouse'' had simplified mini tables below the main level, ''Krull'' had a second, nearly full-sized playfield inside the cabinet, which the player viewed through a plexiglass lenticular window. Unfortunately, this significantly increased the cost of the game -- and when the movie bombed at the box office, management canceled it just before mass-production was to begin. Only 10 completed prototypes exist, making the game a genuine rarity that's highly sought after by collectors.
