Gorgar – pinball machine



Gorgar is a 1979 pinball machine designed by Barry Oursler and released by Williams Electronics.

Gorgar was the first ‘talking’ pinball machine. With a vocabulary of seven words (Gorgar, Speaks, Beat, You, Me, Hurt, Got) The words could be combined together for different phrases, such as “Gorgar speaks” and “Me got you.” The pinball machine also has a heart beat sound effect that increases in frequency during longer game play.


German power metal group Helloween‘s album Walls of Jericho contains a song titled Gorgar. It was also covered by another German power metal group Iron Savior on their album Unification.

Gorgar is available as a licensed table of The Pinball Arcade for several platforms. The table is also included in the Pinball Hall of Fame: The Williams Collection.
