Flipper Pinball II is an early pinball videogame, a variation of Flipper Pinball I. The only difference is the scoring and playfield.
Use the flipper buttons on either side of the console to move the paddles at the bottom of the playfield. The paddles only remain in upward position momentarily when you push the flipper buttons.
The object of the game is to direct the ball to the bars and blocks on the playfield. Each bar and block is worth different points.
Scoring The white top bar scores 200 points when the ball passes through the top of it. No points are made when the ball strikes the bottom side of the bar.
Score 200 points when the ball passes through the two small yellow side bars. Score 100 points when the ball bounces off the long sides of the bars.
After the ball enters each side box, you score 100 points every time it bounces off an inside wall. Score 200 points when through the box.
When the ball passes through the central hoop from the bottom, you get 200 points. Score 800 points when the ball goes through from the top of the hoop.
Color Block Rows - Each block in the two rows of color blocks at the bottom of the playfield is worth points depending on its color: green block 100 points, blue block 200 points, red block 400 points.
When the ball hits a red block, the block disappears. When any row of blocks is gone, make the row reappear by passing the ball through the center hoop/ The row will reappear and you score 1500 points. If both rows are gone, go through the hoop again. The second row will reappear and you score another 1500 points.
