Jungle Lord is a 1981 pinball machine designed by Barry Oursler and produced by Williams Pinball. It features a Tarzan influenced theme, a multi-level playfield and a magnetic ball saver ("Magna Save"). Williams had introduced Magna Save in the Black Knight pinball game in 1980; Jungle Lord was one of four further Magna Save games produced in 1981, along with Pharaoh, Solar Fire and Grand Lizard. One difference from the Black Knight design was that Jungle Lord incorporated a "self-contained mini bagatelle style 'chamber' playfield, found on the top left-hand corner."
|Release date||February 1981|
|System||Williams System 7|
|Programming||Larry DeMar, Paul Dussault|
Jungle Lord also included an innovative scoring feature called Double Trouble, a drop target feature that engages when the player hits five special targets.
Jungle Lord was the second of the four two-level System 7 games that Williams produced, the others being Black Knight, Pharaoh and Solar Fire.
The early production of the game had a red cabinet, and around 100 units were made. The later ones had a blue cabinet and the tiger artwork was slightly changed.
