Description

Pachinko! is based on the Japanese gaming device of the same name. The players are shown right below a giant Pachinko game. Five cups are placed across the screen, with two rotors, one at each side, and the Magic Mountain in the middle. The object of the game is to bounce the balls inside the cups to earn points. Each player has an energizer, used to beat the ball. If the action button is pressed, the energizer will be risen and if the ball touches it, it will continue its horizontal direction. If the ball touches an energizer not completely raised, the ball direction will be reversed. If the ball hits a player, it will loose energy.

The balls change colors each time they hit a rotor or an energizer. Players earn points when balls with their colors bounce inside the cups. If a ball hits the Magic Mountain, the numbers inside the cups will change. There's also Troubleshooter who runs back and forth above the players, trying to catch their balls and throw back to their opponents.

The first player to reach 100 points (or any multiple of 100) wins. Players can also play against the clock.
