01.40 — Williams Pinball “Universal Monsters Pack” announced.

Universal Monsters Pack (not Volume 5) is out of the bag, so let’s fill up on pics and news.

It will be released on 29th October for US$9.99.

No jump points in this episode because there’s too much to slice up. Just listen and enjoy.

Creature features the regular static creature figure under the playfield in regular graphics mode.

In enhanced graphics mode, things get… interactive.
