Gorgar was the first 'talking' pinball machine. With a vocabulary of seven words (Gorgar, Speaks, Beat, You, Me, Hurt, Got) The words could be combined together for different phrases, such as "Gorgar speaks" and "Me got you." The pinball machine also has a heart beat sound effect that increases in speed during longer game play.
