This morning American Pinball's David Fix sent out an e-mail addressing a "minor issue" that some people experienced while playing the Company's new game Galactic Tank Force at the recent Texas Pinball Festival.
The center tank standup targets on the games at the show were getting bent up slightly during repeated game play, causing some players to get air balls that travelled straight down the middle when hitting them. American Pinball has implemented a temporary solution to strengthen the targets on the games that it is bringing to this weekend's Midwest Gaming Classic and a more permanent solution will be implemented on production Galactic Tank Force games "shortly."
American Pinball also announced that the Company's Ryan McQuaid and Steve Bowden will be conducting an official stream of the game with Jack Danger on his Deadflip Twitch channel on the evening of Tuesday April 4th.
Below is a copy of full communication from AP:
