Date Of Manufacture:October, 1940Type:Electro-mechanical (EM) [?]Serial Number Database:View at The Internet Pinball Serial Number Database (IPSND.net)  (External site)Theme:Automobiles - City Skyline - TravelSpecialty:Flipperless [?]Notable Features:Passive bumpers (17). Hitting numbered purple bumpers 1 through 5 in sequence lights each one. When all five are lit, each subsequent hit of a purple bumper awards a free play. The purple bumper in center of playfield is always lit and scores 1000 points. Hitting any lit bumper advances lit car on backglass and advances the backglass Bonus ladder up to 15 steps. The lit car steps twelve times on the backglass to award 1000 points at the twelfth step, and each step alternates the yellow and green rollovers for 1000 points when lit. Scoring either yellow or green rollover when lit lights correspondingly colored bumpers for 1000 points which can then also advance car. The white bumper at bottom of playfield sits between two rollovers and not only advances the car when hit but alternately lights these rollovers to score the backglass Bonus value of 1000 to 15000 points depending on Bonus ladder position, then the Bonus resets. If A-B-C were already made in sequence, scoring a lit bottom rollover awards free plays instead of points.Design by:Harvey HeissArt by:Roy ParkerNotes:'Metro' is an early example of a game that has a bonus ladder to award points, drawing a comparison to games made in the 1970's and later that had this feature. However, these 70's and later games were designed to award the bonus ladder value once the ball landed in the outhole, and this is known as the end-of-ball bonus. On Metro, the bonus ladder is awarded only via a bottom rollover when it's lit, not at the outhole. In addition, balls can reach the outhole without passing through a bottom rollover in which case the bonus ladder value is not earned or awarded. Therefore, while Metro has a bonus ladder, it does not have an end-of-ball bonus. The bonus value can only be awarded during game play.
