Loony Labyrinth
Click for the entire image

Loony Labyrinth has two play modes: Modern Times, and 2000 BC. To travel to 2000 BC, you must activate the time machine by completing its feature.

You begin the game in Modern Times. As you progess through the time-stream to 2000 BC, you become the brave Prince Theseus. The key to your time travel is the Loony Machine which archealogist Sir Evangel discovered near the Knossos Palace of Crete.

In Modern Times, you'll enjoy three kinds of multiball play: Loony Multi, Labyrinth Multi, and Minotaur Multi. These multiball modes will help you explore the Labyrinth. Then, as you travel back in time, the game's music changes to indicate the approach of your final challenge: Battling the Minotaur, and rescuing its nine young victims.

-Loony Labyrinth is rich in sound effects. They will remind you of classic TV game shows and science fiction movies of the 1950s. There's even an "antique" bumper sound from a real vintage pinball machine. Loony Labyrinth's voices tell you about your game's status so you don't have to look up at the score indicators.

Another of Loony Labyrinth's audio features is its two background music tracks. The game starts with "Bump Bumper Bandit," a modern theme. As you travel back to ancient times, the theme changes to "Speak Greek"---the way pinball music might have sounded in 2000 BC!

Loony Labyrinth's brightly-colored rams contrast with its overall antique-style design. We call this the "Neo-Classic" look.

Beginners will enjoy Loony Labyrinth's logical layout, basic rules, and easy-to-launch multiball. Does that mean it's too simple for experts, though? Not at all! The _real_ game starts when multiball starts. You'll find how difficult it is to control three balls---and how fun it is when you can do it.
Loony Labyrinth's multiball modes and Rescue-the-Ball feature have the biggest effects on your score. To get the most out of them, you'll have to learn advanced pinball-handling techniques. There's no better way to learn than playing!

-In 1893, while visiting a London antique shup, the archeologist Sir Evangel, found a strange carved stone called "Galopetra" (in Greek, galo=milk; petra=stone). On its face was a strange hieroglyph and the symbol of a maze. On the reverse was a picture of the Minotaur---a creature with a human body and a bull's head.

He was so fascinated with the mysterious stone, he traveled to the Cretian island where the stone was found. There he found and excavated a huge stone maze, the legendary Labyrinth of Knossos. Deep inside the Labyrinth, he discovered a secret that no one could imagine: A hidden mechanism which enabled a journey to the distant past.

In 2000 BC, the Minos civilization was at its peak, with technology far beyond ours. The Minos people traveled through time and space with their time machines. Then, seeking to make powerful weapons, they began experimenting with bio-technology, and created a fearful monster called the Minotaur.

The bio-weapon Minotaur was furious and uncontrollable, King Minos of Crete ordered Daedalus to build a huge labyrinth on Knossos Hill. There the Minotaur would be contained. To keep it appeased, each year nine young people were sacrificed to it.

When Sir Evangel found the hidden time-travel mechanism, he named it the Loony Machine. He studied it and tried to operate it, but never succeeded. The machine had waited for thousands of years for Theseus, the warrior destined to defeat the Minotaur. When Theseus appeared, the Loony Machine would recognize him and take him back to 2000 BC to save the Minos people.

You now see before you the Galopetra Stone, and a note from Sir Evangel about the Loony Machine.

"Explore the Labyrinth and find the other five Galopetra Stones. Install them in the Loony Machine's pedestal. Then, if you are indeed the destined warrior Theseus, the Machine will take you to Minos, an incredible world of thousands of years ago. Your mission there will be to defeat the Minotaur and save the nine young people from sacrifice. If you are successful, Ariadne will show you how to return to the present."
