Celebrate 50 Years of the Batman TV Show with the Batman ’66 Pinball Machine

Stern Pinball, in collaboration with Ka-Pow Pinball, celebrates 30 years in business with the release of the Batman ’66 Pinball Machine!

Batman '66 Pinball

 

The world’s oldest and largest producer of arcade-quality pinball machines, Stern Pinball, Inc., proudly presents the Batman ’66 Pinball machine. This amazing piece of gaming art, and likely gaming/nerd history, is the celebration of Stern Pinball’s 30th year in business and 50th anniversary of the iconic American TV series. The Batman ’66 Pinball game immerses players in the campy fun and animated action of the Dynamic Duo. Players play through deducing clues and discovering dastardly plots schemed by Batman’s rogue gallery. Players are guided through the game by the voices of the original actors of the show, Adam West and Burt Ward.

Inspired by Joe Kaminkow of Ka-Pow Pinball and spearheaded by Stern Pinball product development chief, George Gomez, along with Lyman Sheats, brought this amazing piece of gaming art to life. The machine is engulfed in artwork based on the show. But the intricacies in the physical design are what really stand out. Look at the top of the headpiece, where you have Batman and Robin in the Batmobile, and in the game itself, with scale recreations of some of the iconic schemes from the series. There’s no way to look at the KG Bird Crane with the Penguin at its helm and not giggle. Lastly, embedded into the headpiece is a full-color high definition display instead of the traditional dot matrix display. This, in conjunction to Stern’s new SPIKE-2 pinball platform, enables the game to feature actual footage from the show.

“We are very proud to celebrate our 30th year in business by making a 50th anniversary Batman ’66 game in collaboration with our good friend, Joe Kaminkow.  Joe, who was instrumental in starting Stern Pinball 30 years ago and served as our company’s very first game designer, is now one of the gaming industry’s leaders,” said Gary Stern, Chairman and CEO of Stern Pinball, Inc.
