Homebrew, 2018

Queen is a homebrew re-theme of a 1979 Williams Flash playfield with all-new game code and artwork. The cabinet is from a 1978 Bally Playboy. The game uses P-ROC electronic components along with a segment display controller from MyPinballs.com and an ASUS Tinker Board mini-computer for a CPU. The software system is by Mission Pinball Framework (MPF).

The gameplay is mode-based, inspired by classic wedgeheads: Fun Land, Jacks Open, Grand Prix, Golden Arrow, Travel Time, Centigrade 57, Beat Time and OXO. “Somebody to Love” mode uses a custom light display embedded in the lower apron. The overall game structure is similar to Revenge From Mars – completing three game modes leads to a special bonus mode and, finally, to a wizard mode. The game features 12 different Queen songs, plus some alternate versions.

Queen was developed by Pinsider Doug Spata.
