One Piece Straw Hat Pinball -Marineford Summit War- is a mobile pinball game released for Android on June 6, 2013 and iOS on July 10, 2013. A trial version for PC was available on the game’s website. Service for the game ended on November 29, 2015.
Gameplay[edit | edit source]
Mechanics[edit | edit source]
The player takes control Monkey D. Luffy (and later Portgas D. Ace) in the form of a pinball. The player starts the game with 5 lives, and their score is accumulated in as their bounty. The game stops once the player loses all lives, halting the story’s progression.
The game functions like a standard pinball game with flippers at the bottom, bumpers interspersed on the playfield, drop targets, and enemies from the series as bash toys. Each enemy has a fixed amount of HP that is reduced when struck by the pinball. Some also have special abilities, like Smoker producing smoke bash toys to protect himself or Sakazuki walking down the playfield after Ace is freed. The playfield also includes canons that shoot cannonballs in a fixed line to intercept the pinball. The canons can be destroyed if hit by the pinball.
This game differs in that a Slot Bonus!! (スロツトボーナス!! Surotsutobōnasu!!?) can be activated by hitting three spots on a slot. This bonus will trigger a corresponding effect linked to Luffy or one of his allies. Different bonuses are triggered by landing the pinball in the drop targets.
