Continuing our coverage with the first pictures of Indiana Jones from the Enada Show in Rimini, we can now bring you more and improved pictures of the game, courtesy of Federico.

As we saw before, the four movies are all represented with the Holy Grail sitting atop one of the pop bumpers, the Ark of the Covenant at the top centre, the Crystal Skull over the right ramp and a rotating stone wall allowing the captive ball to launch a second and third ball into a bank of targets.

The front ball is captive while the two behind are free to bounce around the map room. An initial hit sends the ball at the back into the targets while a second hit give two ball multiball.

The loose balls can spot the M-A-P letters on the yellow standups and there are slingshot kickers on the side rubbers to increase the action. Completing the M-A-P letters lights the 8-ball multiball.

And what happens when that stone wall revolves?

The four movies are colour-coded yellow, red, blue and green with appropriately coloured inserts and playfield artwork. The crystal skull appear to be a static object and only interacts through its lighting.

Detail of the Ark and the Crystal Skull

The ark looks nicely detailed and includes a magnet in front. The seven green standups are not individually lit so must act as bank instead much like in Attack From Mars.

But the ark is more than just an elaborate toy. It holds balls within and raises them on a platform to be released through the top as the lid opens.

The palform pivots to send the balls rolling off the front of the ark and onto the playfield for multiball.

There are spinners on both orbits which can be lit for super spinner.

Sadly the stand-up budget and space didn't stretch to a full "Indiana", so we just get "Indy Jones" spelled out on the playfield instead.

The game continues the split-display DMD started on Wheel Of Fortune although it will be interesting to see what happens when the score gets above 1 billion points.

But Indiana Jones wasn't the only new Stern game at Enada. He had a friend to accompany him.
