Chicago Gaming is going to do a remake of Cactus Canyon. It will be an upgrade from the original as it will have software that will include extra features that were not available in the original. I know a lot of purists out there were a bit frustrated with the recent remakes as they feel it devalues their machines. Well I still do not see any of the originals going down in price. I think Chicago Games is doing a service for the pinball community. I love these games. I love when the rumors explode of what game they will release next (Addams Family). These games are a lot of fun and do pay homage to the originals.
Cactus Canyon was originally manufactured by Bally in 1998. It is known as the very last traditional pinball machine made by Bally/Williams. The features on this game were never fully completed. Basically there are no video modes or match animations. This should very likely be corrected in the remake.
