For years, “The King” of pinball design Steve Ritchie has had a dream, a
vision, of a game he wanted to bring you.  He brought you over 20,000 Black
Knight and Black Knight 2000 games.  Steve preached to us that there was
more he could and wants to do with that theme and design.  So we licensed
for Steve from Williams and Planetary Pinball rights to all the greatness
of Black Knight, including its iconic music, speech (voiced by Steve
himself), concepts, art design.  We introduce to you our latest cornerstone
game, designed by Steve, Black Knight – Sword of Rage.

I hope all of you, our distributors and dealers, had an opportunity to view
our latest Webinars which we broadcast from Dubai the beginning of the
week.  Once again, my writing a long description of Black Knight – Sword of
Rage would be redundant.  I would like to reiterate a few facts:

Black Knight – Sword of Rage is classic Steve Ritchie.  It has all the DNA
of the first two Black Knight games – speech, sound & music, upper
playfield with flipper on the LE/Premiums, classic player operated Magna
Save to prevent the ball draining right, and art by Black Knight artist
Kevin O’Connor.  Black Knight – Sword of Rage’s playfield layout is new yet
derived from earlier Black Knights, providing fast, flowing game play, with
all steel and wire ramps.  Steve has added great ball interactive toys with
the Knight’s flail mech and multifunction shield mech.  He has included
drop targets, spinning target, and vuks.  A retro play mode utilizes
classic rules of the original games and has early pinball numeric score
displayed on the LCD.  Steve has modernized this pinball with the LCD
display that has all original animation, with more Steve speech helped by
Barenaked Ladies’ Ed Robertson, and music by Brendon Small and Anthrax’s
Scott Ian.  Lighting and light shows are bought into the 21st century with
LED’s, many RGB, white and appropriate red GI’s, and backpanel mounted LED
simulated fire burning down the Knight’s castle.  And Steve made the
Premium/LE’s upper playfield of see-through lexan

The Premium/LE versions for collectors, enthusiasts and locations with
enthusiast customers, is significantly differentiated from the Pro not only
with each having its own art packages.  These models have the clear lexan
upper playfield, with 3 ways to reach it.  All paths up to the lexan
playfield feed its upper playfield flipper.  There is a unique catapult
multiball locking mech, adding another method to achieve multiball.  To
this, Steve has added a unique shooter ramp taking the ball to the upper or
lower playfield, an additional drop target, different ramps and more.  Thus
the top half of the game not only looks very different that Pro, it plays
very differently.

We continue to include in the LE all the added features customers want:
•            Anti-reflective playfield glass
•            Mirrored backglass
•            Upgraded sound system
•            Shaker motor
•            Gloss black/gold metalflake armor and legs, with gold leg
•            Unique LE only inside cabinet art blades
