The Spirit of '76 was the first microprocessor-based pinball table. It was released by Mirco Games, Inc. in 1975. The pinball machine should not be confused with the pinball machine Spirit of 76 by Gottlieb.[1][2]

Background[edit]

The table was based on the technology Dave Nutting Associates had created for Bally in 1974. The firm licensed the technology to Mirco Games in 1975 to create the table, since Bally was not initially interested in the system. The table had a fairly small production run and was regarded as having an unattractive design by critics.
