I love that place but it's so far from Wesley Chapel.
Would love to hear some observations on Houdini from those that are close by and have played it.

I dig it. I'm typically not a fan of stop-and-go but shots are TIGHT and game is very pretty.

Don’t have a lot of time on it yet but it seems to have a deep rule set, lots of things to do and the toys are fun.  When I first got it I thought it was way to chatty so I made some adjustments which I think helped.

Pin is very nice, fun to play, a few very tight shots which makes for a nice challenge. Only thumbs down for me is the sound\call outs. Not a pin I want the volume up to loud. Wish price point wasn't so high. Thanks to E.K. for letting me play his new machine.

Played it at the swap meet. Not bad for American's first machine.


I'm hoping that TPL picks up a Total Nuclear Annihilation - first spooky title that I really dig!

I played this at 1UP and really liked it. Some of the criticism on mode/exposition length is valid, but playfield layout is really nice and it's beautiful. I think those of us that like ToM will really like Houdini. It feels a lot like ToM 2.0 (meant in the nicest way possible).
