The sounds deluxe sound board which has the 68000 16-bit processor required double the ROMs, but capable of playing both the music in the background and sound effects including speech at the same time through a single DAC.
Party Animal was released in May 1987.
The playfield has the jukebox toy with flashing lights to create a nostalgic memory of the classic Rowe jukebox with its colors and bubbling tubes.
The game is capable of playing multiple songs. By hitting all 3 jukebox targets at any time of the game (except multiball), the game will switch to different licensed songs starting with the first on every new game:
During multiball, it will play Wipe Out.
Its animal party theme is from the idea of the famous movie National Lampoon's Animal House.
Some machines will have an alternate backbox insert as Bally/Midway received complaints about having a beer mug in the art. It was replaced with a root-beer drink.
The toad-on-a-stool jumps when the ball hits the standup underneath.
The letters P-A-R-T-Y A-N-I-M-A-L will carry over to every new game until the player achieves all letters lit to start multiball.
