Namco arcade games ELK GROVE VILLAGE, IL -- Namco America has begun shipping its new Triple Turn and Ball Spectacular ticket redemption games. The company reports that the new pieces received a warm reception when they were introduced earlier this year.

Triple Turn involves launching a ball into one of several tubes that direct it onto one of three rotating platforms; the lowest awards the greatest ticket value. Ball Spectacular, which measures almost nine feet tall, presents a pachinko-derived challenge as the player strives to time the release of balls onto a peg-filled playfield; good timing allows a ball to be directed through several gates that increase the ticket payoff.

Slated to debut at the 2013 International Association of Amusement Parks and Attractions Expo in Orlando, FL, in November are a redemption game and an aviation simulator.

New Pac-Man Chomp Mania is a gift-card-dispensing variant of Pac-Man Ticket Mania, the popular video-ticket redemption implementation of Namco's classic Pac-Man concept developed in cooperation with Raw Thrills. Mach Storm is a kinetic jet fighter simulator.

Also slated for display at the IAAPA Attractions Expo is a variety of new prize merchandise from Namco, including Pac-Man and the Ghostly Adventure plush, 5" Pac-Man Ghost bluetooth wireless speakers, Pac-Man PVC balls and licensed Gloomy Bear plush.

Other new items may be unveiled at the November show, as circumstances may permit.
