TRIVIA

Released in November 1980. 11,000 units were produced.

The development of the game took 1 year (started in November 1979).

This game was Bally's first talking game, using the AS-2518-56 'Sounds Plus' sound board and the AS-2518-58 'Vocalizer' board instead of the 'Squawk and Talk' system.

Most remembered for its sexy sounding voice, with electronic music composer Suzanne Ciani doing all the voices for this game.

KMIEC appears on the playfield near the right flipper (near the head of a robot). Greg KMIEC is the designer of the game.
