Dragon

Artist: Unknown

Dragon

Though American companies created the vast majority of pinball machines, many smaller manufacturers produced games throughout Europe. Spanish maker Interflip S.A. released Dragon in 1977.

Artistically, Dragon resides in the sword and sorcery genre which was popularized in comics and fantasy novels through the 1970’s by artists like Frank Frazetta. Sharing considerable overlap in audience with comic books, pinball manufacturers adopted the fantasy genre for many titles in the late 1970’s and early 80’s. While the artist is unknown, Dragon shares the vivid colors and dramatic layout you’d expect from American pinball artists like Gordon Morison.
