Suspense is an electro-mechanical pinball machine released by Williams Electronics in 1969. The machine was designed by Norm Clark with artwork by Christian Marche.

The machine features 4 flippers, 5 pop bumpers, 2 slingshots, 6 standup targets, 2 kick-out holes, a captive ball spinner. The flipper buttons each perform in two stages. Pressing a flipper button only halfway activates only the 2-inch flipper closest to it while fully pressing the button also simultaneously activates the two center 3-inch flippers, making three flippers be activated at the same time. Using staged flipping, the player can separately operate the left and right halves of each pair of flippers 3 or 5 ball play.

The center playfield bonus ladder incremented only by the ball in play hitting either of two Advance Bonus standup targets. It can only be collected by the captive ball spinner landing on BONUS. Once collected, it starts over at 100 points. This is an automatic carry-over feature from ball to ball and from player to player, allowing either player to collect this bonus regardless of which player increased its value. This bonus ladder also is operator-adjustable to allow carry over from game to game. If set for Liberal, the bonus ladder does not reset to 100 points at start of a new game and stays at its higher value until collected. If set to Conservative, the bonus ladder does reset to 100 points at start of a new game.
