Chicago Gaming and Planetary Pinball are pleased to present Attack from Mars, the highly anticipated second game in a series of remakes of the greatest Bally and Williams pinball machines.

Recreated to exceed the high standards of the original game, Attack from Mars will be available in three models: the Classic Edition, the Special Edition and the Limited Edition. These three models all have numerous features never before available and exclusive to the remakes.

Modern electronics have been engineered to improve reliability, simplify serviceability, reduce energy consumption and provide game owners with the ability to customize their own game.

Attack from Mars features all LED lighting which means you may have to never replace a light bulb again. Painstaking efforts were made to replicate warmth and feel of incandescent bulbs. The software controls the speed at which the LEDs reach full brightness to emulate the relatively slow ramps up and down of light produced by incandescent bulbs.

The game's cabinetry has been greatly improved. Both the cabinet and backbox are manufactured with melamine clad plywood. Melamine is 10 times more scratch resistant than traditional lacquer finishes. The original fiberboard cabinet bottom has been replaced with a ½" plywood bottom - significantly improving the strength of the cabinet and providing added protection for the cashbox.

Custom Topper (LE Only)

Doug Watson, the creator of the original Attack from Mars art package, was commissioned to design the new topper. Watson hand sculpted the Martian from which the molds were created to produce the new roto-molded animated Martian. Watson also created the other printed topper elements.

Large Martian Saucer - Tri-Color LEDs (LE & SE Only)

For the first time ever, the large Martian Saucer features Red, Green and Blue tri-color LEDs. The tri-color LEDs display all new light shows which have been integrated into the gameplay.

Martian Mini Saucers - Bi-Color LEDs (LE Only)

All six mini saucers on the LE will feature never before seen green and red dual color LEDs. All six mini saucers are controlled independently and tightly integrated into gameplay.

Enhanced Sound (LE & SE Only)

Sound is a crucial component of the player's experience. The system's class D digital amplifier powers two 120-watt poly-cone coaxial speakers and a single 8" 190-watt poly-cone woofer to provide an unprecedented immersive audio experience. Additionally, owners are now able to control the balance between the speaker panel and the cabinet woofer. Whether you prefer thumping bass or something more traditional, you now control your audio experience.

The speakers are illuminated with red, green and blue tri-color LEDs. These are utilized to create lighting effects which have been integrated into gameplay.

XL Display - Nearly 2x the viewable area! (LE and SE only)

HD Color Upgrade (LE & SE Only)

ATHYRIO GAMES has created all new full-color display artwork, reimagined within the framework of the original Bally display artwork at four times the resolution. Nearly 2,400 frames have been painstakingly animated to create a display that features full color and four times the number of dots as the original Bally game.
