Name: Attack from Mars
Seller: Tiger
Date: 1998
Display: LCD
Comments: Based upon the full size pinball machine, which is one of my favorite pinball games.  This is not an official Mars Attacks license, but of course its stealing the same idea and style.  Also, not too surprisingly it was released at the same time as the amazing Mars Attacks movie by Tim Burton.  Usually lcd pinball games are just plain boring, but this one is quite addictive and has great sounds (duphonic 2-channel sound chip?!?!) that are designed after the full size version.

It even has the little rubbery wiggling green aliens in the game (if you've played the full size pinball game you know what I mean)!

The package and game has the same cool artwork as seen on the pinball backglass.
