1989 Williams

Earthshaker was released in February of 1989. It was designed by Pat Lawlor and the art work was done by Tim Elliot.

This was the first machine to have a shaker motor. The theme is based on earthquakes in the California/Nevada area. During the game the two states at the top of the playfield split apart becoming a rail that the ball follows.

The music and voice are typical for the era. The game is known for the female voice saying "Bitchin". I understand that "family ROM's" are available if this is too graphic.

It's a 3 ball game. You lock two balls and start multi-ball by placing the 3rd ball into play. The shaker motor runs when the balls are locked and during multi-ball. The shaker motor runs very slowly producing a "quake like" shake.
