Info I couldn’t find space on the cards for (lots of stuff, this game is DEEP!):


Extra Balls:


-6 Recues then collect at right ramp
-6 DNA Combos
-Capture T-Rex
-Smart Missile Award (after +5 Rescues award chosen, Extra Ball can be chosen the next time Smart Missile is activated.)
-Complete Fossil Set #2
-5th Super Supply Drop

Supply Drop (Mystery Award):
-First Supply Drop of T-Rex and Raptor Multiball is an Add-a-Ball

CHAOS Multiball:
-Add-a-ball from Pop Bumper hits (increases after each Add-a-ball).

Amber Value:
Carries over entire game.

Extra Clarification of what the Smart Missile is (if you don’t know how to start it):
The “Smart Missile” isn’t that smart. Well, I guess that’s arguable, but it’s not ‘smart’ like the Data East Smart Missile (and others) where hitting the button spots all lit shots. Instead, when the ball is held (in the left inlane), you choose what award you want to attempt with the action button, then you have to hit the Amber Target through the narrow lane between the truck captive ball and the left post of the right ramp. This then triggers the bonus that you selected. The Smart Missiles are lit from Rescues.


Amber Frenzies
Starts a Super Features (Super Targets, Super Ramps, etc.) with the Amber Value used.

2X Timer: When lit (but not started yet), supply drops add time for your next 2X Timer.
