MELROSE PARK, IL – March 5, 2014 – Stern Pinball, Inc., the world's oldest and largest producer of arcade-quality pinball games, proudly announced today the availability of three Mustang pinball games. The feature-rich Boss Premium and 50-Years-of-Mustang Limited Edition machines will join Stern’s Pro model, which was recently greeted by rave reviews at the Chicago Auto Show. Manufactured by Chicago’s own Stern Pinball, the Mustang-inspired games combine two icons of American pop culture – pinball and Mustang.
Stern Pinball’s Pro model, designed for arcades and other public spaces, features Mustangs from the past five decades. The Boss Premium model focuses on an array of Boss Mustang models while the 50-Years-of-Mustang Limited Edition machine contains exclusive commemorative game features and art from the1965 original Mustang through the all-new 2015 Mustang GT. Each game includes real Mustang sounds and a Sony Music soundtrack featuring generational cruising tunes to give players the visceral experience of driving a Mustang. The Boss Premium and 50-Years-of-Mustang Limited Edition models feature genuine Ford Mustang chrome pony emblems on the speaker display panels, unique art packages, additional drop targets, an interactive turntable feature, a stainless steel crossing ramp and eight color-changing LED shot arrows to lead players on a unique racing experience.
The games incorporate a mix of classic pinball features and cutting-edge technology to let players race with some of the greatest Mustangs of all time and build a dream collection as players progress through the game. The playfield invites players to go drag racing, rallying, drifting and road racing as they string a series of shots together in pursuit of a high score.
“Everyone at Stern is buzzing with excitement about the Mustang games,” said Gary Stern, Chairman and CEO of Stern Pinball, Inc. “From the artwork and game features to the generational soundtrack, we’ve created games that will make Mustang lovers, pinball fanatics and collectors worldwide eager to take each model for a test-drive.”
The Ford Mustang game continues the Stern Pinball tradition of producing quality pinball machines for young and old. The company traces its lineage to the 1930’s in Philadelphia when Sam Stern entered the business of operating pinball games. Sam subsequently became part owner and president of Williams Manufacturing, a pioneer in the pinball industry, and passed his lifelong enthusiasm for pinball to his son, Gary, who founded Stern Pinball. Today pinball remains one of the world’s favorite pastimes.
