For over a decade, pinball games were only being designed by one company. While they did good work in keeping pinball alive, the lack of competition caused the products to become stagnant. There were no new ideas; no features that stood above and beyond what pinball machines in the 90s were doing. Until competition came along in 2012 and changed the whole dynamic.
So thanks to competition, pinball is becoming great again (to play off of a popular political phrase ;) ) as well as more creative and fun.
The silhouette's feature three major pinball manufacturers - Heighway, Jersey Jack and Stern.
