Terminator 2: Judgment Day (pinball)
- For other games of the same name, see Terminator 2: Judgment Day (video game).
|Release date||July 1991|
|System||Williams WPC (Dot Matrix)|
|Voices||Arnold Schwarzenegger (The Terminator)|
The table is the first Williams WPC machine designed to feature a dot-matrix display. But due to the long design phase, Gilligan's Island was the first manufactured with a DMD. Terminator 2: Judgment Day was the first game to feature an autoplunger (replacing the traditional plunger), as well as a ball-firing cannon (dubbed, "Gun Grip Ball Launcher"). Finally, T2 was the first game to feature a video mode, a mini video game featured on the DMD. Arnold Schwarzenegger provided voices for the game. Some playfield design elements were based on Ritchie's 1980 classic, Firepower. T-1000 was not included in the artwork of the table, with the exception of a small image of actor Robert Patrick because of pre-release secrecy of the movie. The character was only included in the display animation because when the DMD programming was finalizing the liquid metal character was already public knowledge.
As with many pinball machines, a score award is given for each extra ball awarded thereafter, once 5 extra balls are awarded a game.
A follow up to this game is Terminator 3: Rise of the Machines featuring a very similar playfield design and rulesheet.
Terminator 2: Judgment Day was formerly available as a licensed table of The Pinball Arcade for any platform until June 30, 2018 due to WMS license expiration and made this table disappear from every digital store.
