Saturn 2 - Bell Games
Information
Bell Games (formerly known as Bell-Coin-Matics, and later as Nuova Bell Games) from Italy specialized in building kits for transforming old pinball games into 'new' ones. "Saturn 2" copied the gameplay of the "Spy Hunter", a 1984 Bally pinball.

Usually Bell Games built 350 to 400 copies of a game, but "Saturn 2" proved to be a best-seller with more than 1.200 kits sold. Before this game, Bell used recycled parts from Bally solid state games, but to meet the demand from operators for "Saturn 2" they were forced to build their own printed circuits.

Because of the popularity of the game, Bell even suffered a cabinet shortage, and they made 12 brand new ones for "Saturn 2". Of course, these 12 are real collector's items.
