Flash Dragon is a solid state pinball machine developed by Playmatic of Barcelona, Spain.

In 1986, being squeezed in the arcades by more technologically sophisticated games such as Space Shuttle and Pin*Bot, Playmatic needed a way to make their games stand out among players. Their solution was Flash Dragon, which at first blush looked like a nondescript table with a generic High Fantasy theme. However, when a player established the new high score on the game, a Polaroid instant camera embedded into the backbox would snap a picture, providing a memento of the occasion.

Although the gimmick wasn't enough to overcome Flash Dragon's simplistic gameplay, the photos did provide Spanish pinball players with some fond memories.
