greatest pirate adventure of all-time is now the latest pinball machine
from Stern Pinball, Inc. Disney's Pirates of the Caribbean
pinball features exciting elements from the first movie, as well as the
box office record-breaking, Disney's Pirates of the Caribbean/Dead
For those fans of the movies, Disney's Pirates of the Caribbean
pinball machine adapts the characters and settings from the two Disney
films perfectly into a pinball playfield. Two former Williams' developers
designed Disney's Pirates of the Caribbean, game designer
Dennis Nordman and rules designer/software engineer Dwight Sullivan.
"Disney's Pirates of the Caribbean is the perfect title
and theme for a pinball," Gary Stern says. "It lends itself to lots of
mechanical action pinball shots and toys for casual players, yet the story
cries for deep rules to challenge the best players."
The goal of Disney's Pirates of the Caribbean pinball
is to go on a pirate adventure to defeat Davy Jones, Jack's nemesis in
Disney's Pirates of the Caribbean/Dead Man's Chest.
Disney's Pirates of the Caribbean offers the following
- A mechanical pirate ship that the player strikes
with the pinball. With each hit, the ship lowers its sails and eventually
sinks into the playfield, thus revealing a shot into the Kraken's mouth.
In this area, the player can sink the ship, destroy the Kraken, and
fight Davy Jones.
- A mechanical treasures chest, the Dead Man's Chest,
through which the player can shoot the ball. When the player has the
KEY, the chest opens. They can then spell H-E-A-R-T to begin HEART multi-ball.
- A contained spinning rubber disk where the player
can capture up to three pinballs. The disk bounces them around in the
contained area and holds them for an extended period of time till the
player starts multi-ball. The disk sometimes represents Tortuga and
other times Port Royal.
- A map compass comprised of playfield inserts that
shows the player each feature they need to finish. Complete all eight
features and play Four Winds Multi-ball.
