Yeah I found it right after asking. Different question, what's magna save?

Also I can't figure out those FFFFFFFing magnets on the multiball panels.

I did a bit of research just now and found that when Magna Save is charged, you can hold the launch button to pull the ball toward the center of the table. I wish I had known this sooner (i.e. when we were playing this for competition).

The magnets on the puzzle cube work the same way; you need to play around with the ball's momentum to get it to launch into the hole. It's rather tricky and I mostly just didn't bother with it.

Levitation is weird because you have to hit that floating ball. I'm sticking with the four sinkholes.

Levitation is the easiest one to consistently earn and doesn't require hitting four sinkholes (far easier said than done).

Nah, hitting the four sinkholes isn't hard at all. Just make sure for the bottom two that the slanted pieces are pointing the right way. Plus then once you get them all, it's like gay sex with Lance Armstrong

I fully expect to see your top score being four times as high as mine after I get back from my 360-free weekend, then.

(Still need more suggestions, guys!)

You guys didn't know about Magna Save? Well, you didn't miss much. Just as often as it saves the ball it gets stuck on the flipper and you lose the ball anyway.

And I do not enjoy the Marvel set.

How about the old Tetris? GB Camera Juggle? Doom?

The Marvel tables seem like they're going to require an ungodly amount of practice to be enjoyable.

BP, the idea is to suggest games we're not already good at, and Tetris Attack doesn't fit the bill.

And ignoring the massive existing skill gap we'd have to deal with if we tried to play it, any version of Tetris that doesn't have "The Grand Master" in the title was ruined for me some time ago.

Bro, you are Doing It Wrong. You gotta flip the flippers up while you magna save so the ball rides them up into the play field.

Holy butts magna save is a godsend.

113M isn't four times your score, but it's certainly higher. Then again, it's only been 24 hours since I started playing.

I got 108M on the first two balls.

I rescind my previous statement about Marvel Pinball, or at least about one of its tables. This was my second credit of Spider-Man ever:

That was in response to CoconutMikeNIke's suggestion of GB Tetris, not your suggestion of Tetris Attack. Panel de Pon and any other version of that game would have the same problem already mentioned in my response to your suggestion.
