Lights...Camera...Action!™ Released

June 6th, 2014

Lights...Camera...Action!™ has just been released for Steam on Mac and Windows!

Lights...Camera...Action!™ (1989): is another great game from Gottlieb® that was designed by Jon Norris. It puts players in the roll of a Director challenged with finishing an exciting action movie. This is accomplished by completing classic action movie scenes such as a gunfight scene, stunt scene and a foot chase scene on the stairs. This innovative table features many industry firsts including flood lights on the back box, a rotating mini-playfield, a player interactive lightbox animation and ball jets, which launch balls back at players. This was also the first table to include a Catch-Up feature, giving players of all skill levels a chance in multiplayer games. 1,708 units of this table were produced.

Version 1.27.2

- Fixed "oints"/"Points" on challenge screen in lower resolutions
- Added Lights Camera Action

Check out the table in action!

Decided to give this game a shot, due to the current summer sale deal (3 tables for $0.01)

From what I've been seeing, this game is more of a sim, than other pinball games, Off the bat, the ball physics felt a tad off to me. The ball felt a little light. Maybe I just got use to the physics of the FX2 ball, but regardless, I still enjoyed the game. I've played other pinball games where the ball just doesn't feel right at all, and it ruins the entire game.

I grew up during the arcade era. I immediately recognized a ton of tables I would see and wanted to play, but didn't due to me being so bad at pinabll, that i'd just end up wasting the $1 my dad would give me and just play for like 5 mins. He was good at pinball, he would constantly earn free games that he would let me have after he was done with his original credit.

There's not much to say really. If you like pinbal, this game is worth a shot. It's really nice how they recreated real tables. It's hard for people not to compare this game with FX2. They're both good pinball games that offer something different. FX offering stuff that could never be produced in a real table, like beaming down your ball in a light saber. I personally like that, but could also go for a bit more realistic experience. This definitely makes you feel like you have one of those giant pinball machines in your home.

The graphics may not be perfect, but what you do get are two things no other pinball game has:

1. The ball physics is phenomenal, going back to other pinball games after playing PA demonstrate just how close Farsight have got to the real thing and how waaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaayyyyyyyyyyyyyyyyy off the mark certain other pinball games are.

2. These are great recreations of real tables running the original software, if you like pinball and don't have a few grand to drop on a real machine then a few quid for some of the best tables of all time is peanuts for what you get in terms of actual play time and satisfaction.

Download it, play it in portrait mode with a monitor flat on a table,

I recommend these tables - Monster Bash, Star Trek, Terminator 2, Attack from Mars.

Just a great great game and a great service to pinball fans by a devoted small studio.

Very very highly recommended

The slavish dedication to replicating every dumb and chintzy pinball gimmick should be commended. All one has to do is play "The Creature from the Black Lagoon 3D" table and see how disturbingly accurate the blurry hologram in the center of the board is replicated.


These people are doing the lord's work, and the pinball physics are so much better here than they are in Pinball FX2/Zen Pinball. This is a wonderful pinball simulator, and a slice of history not to be missed.
