Game Introduction

STERN PINBALL INC. PRESS RELEASE July 13 2006–The 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 Man’s Chest.

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.
