Black Rose is a pinball machine produced by Midway (released under the Bally name). Black Rose was released around the same time as The Addams Family pinball machine, whose production ran long, making Black Rose a rare game with few units. Black Rose received mixed views on the rec.games.pinball group.[1]

Gameplay[edit]

The basic idea of the game is to sink ships. The game features a rotating cannon situated underneath the playfield used to aim the ball at targets to award letters in the word "SINK SHIP". During multiball you also get letters for shooting flashing ramps. Once SINK SHIP is spelled, you load the cannon to light the center shot (the "Broadside") to get big points.

Digital versions[edit]

Black Rose is a playable table in Williams Pinball Classics (2001) by Encore, Inc. for PC.[2] and is available as licensed table of The Pinball Arcade on several platforms.
