Gladiators Pinball (Carolina Arcade Museum)

Gladiators Pinball machine

While this wasn’t a favorite of mine at Forest City NC’s Carolina Arcade Museum, this Gottlieb pinball machine from 1993 has a unique history. When the game was first made, it was intended to be based on Nintendo’s Legend of Zelda, as the same company made the Super Mario Bros. pinball. Though for a silly reason, they changed the game to be based on American Gladiators, that old TV show.

Which I guess is okay, but it’s not a super-good pinball game or layout. The art if forgettable too. It’d be a shame if Zelda had a bad pinball game. No pinball is better than bad pinball, maybe.
