25th Anniversary Commemorative Edition.
This is the default graphics option.
After rambling on
length last week about the movie and soundtrack album of the
1979 Sex Pistols "documentary" The Great Rock'nRoll Swindle, it
occurred to your reporter that this year marks a quarter of a
century since the film's release. So what could possibly be a better
way to celebrate such an important cultural landmark than to knock
out a quick update to your correspondent's original Visual Pinball
table of the same name? Probably several things, but that's what
you've got anyway. It's free, so shut up.
Rock'n'Roll Swindle Pinball is a fast-moving table modelled after
the classic pins of the 1980s, such as Williams' "The Getaway" and

here. Then all you need to do is unzip both files into a folder,
start up VP and open the table. Full instructions for playing the
game are included separately in a Word document in the zip file.
previously downloaded the 2003 edition of Swindle, the only
significant changes are a new backdrop option (the one in the
picture at the top of this page) and some small adjustments to the
table itself, so if you don't fancy the 11MB download, that's what
you're missing. If you only had one of the earlier releases, the
table's had a complete graphical overhaul since then and is well
worth re-downloading, in the author's humblish opinion. And
obviously, if you've never seen it before at all, you're hopefully
in for some fun.
There are 25 main combinations of table
graphics and backdrops.
