The FAMILY GUY pinball machine introduces a unique element to pinball—Stewie’s mini-playfield. Stewie’s mini-playfield is a small pinball playfield that sits in the upper right hand corner of the main playfield. It has mini-flippers that the player controls with the regular flipper buttons when the game is in ‘Stewie mini-playfield’ mode. The mini-playfield even has ramps and targets to shoot at while a toy of Stewie turns on its axis in front of the mini-playfield and taunts the player into believing they have no chance of beating Stewie.
Additional features on the game include: character figures of each of the six Griffin family members by Mezco Toys; a Patriot Ale can with a Brian Griffin toy standing on top that can be struck by the ball (the game owner will be provided with an extra set of decals if they want to change Patriot Ale to Patriot Root Beer); two captive pinballs, which spell out P-I-N-B-A-L-L when struck; and plenty of multi-ball features.
