This game was a fixture all over town, but I remember it best at the Wizard arcade in Carlingwood Mall in 1980. Every day after school I would change busses right in front of the arcade and would of course always visit. This game would have a line of quarters halfway up the playfield with a line of kids to match, and at 50 cents a game, it was doing very good business.
Black Knight was a groundbreaking game for a number of reasons. First multi-level playfield, first use of Magna -Save, speech, 3 ball multiball with playfield points multiplier, 4 flippers, 4 sets of timed drop targets, and a great theme, sound, and light package. All that and a cowbell!
This Black Knight had been upgraded with all LED illumination featuring colour matched inserts and a full psychedelic general Illumination treatment, LED displays, newer fliptronic style flipper assemblies, Superband flipper and post rubbers, fully rebuilt pop bumper and target banks, and much more!
Definitely, and only pinball I used to play at the Unicenter at Carleton University!
What was the name of that arcade? I can picture it on the outside of Sears near the main door.
It was a Wizard Arcade during the early 80's when the stores along the road the buses stopped on had outside doors and were not accessible from inside the mall.
