The artwork featured photos by Robert John from his book Guns N' Roses: The Photographic History. This game was a widebody pinball game with several unique twists. Among them, was an old fashioned revolver, which players used to start the game as opposed to the typical plunger. When a quarter was inserted, the band's famous "Welcome to the Jungle" song (recorded from a concert) would play. Also included on the soundtrack is the Use Your Illusion outtake "Ain't Going Down," which is the only official release of the song. The backdrop was illuminated with lights in the shape of the famous Guns N' Roses seal, and Axl Rose's tattoos, featured in the Appetite for Destruction album artwork. The multi-ball can be activated when the yellow light is lit on the G ramp, this will open a trap door and send the ball into the snake pit (if the ball is shot up the ramp which is a hard shot), pulling the rose plunger will then activate the multi-ball. An "R" ramp was also featured completing the "GN'R" logo. The game play is a mode-based game not unlike that of The Addams Family, Jurassic Park, or Tommy. The machine also used magnets as ball stoppers, a feature that was used previously on "The Addams Family", and a video mode for extra points.
