RULES AND CODE

Overview

(PLEASE NOTE!!  This is what I could pick up from the stream, so some parts are missing and/or incomplete!)

The Pro versions are shipping with code version 0.81.

According to the Stern Pinball website:

“Deadpool” is known as the “Merc with a Mouth” because of his talkative nature & is notorious for his outrageously funny offbeat humor which is featured throughout the game.  Players will be immersed in the Deadpool universe, teaming up with iconic X-Men characters Wolverine, Dazzler, Domino, and Colossus as they battle against infamous villains Juggernaut, Sabretooth, Mystique, Sauron, and Mr. Sinister. Players will also tag along with Deadpool on his time machine quests as he battles against the T-Rex and the Megalodon.

You begin this game in Deadpool’s bunker, with Dazzler, Colossus, Wolverine, and Domino.  They’re hanging out having a good time playing some retro Stern games.  Deadpool is front and center, playing his new Deadpool LE pinball machine.

It is worth noting, this is the first Stern Pinball machine in a while (since Batman ’66?) where the player does not make a “choice” before starting a game, such as picking your song or path.


MAIN MODES

In the main storyline, there are two types of modes – BATTLES and QUESTS.  You light and play these modes in the following ways:

BATTLES

  • Light Battle by spelling D-E-A-D on the Deadpool targets

  • Shoot scoop, then Choose your Battle

  • Shoot lit shots to defeat enemies
    • Juggernaut: shoot DEADPOOL targets, then shoot lit orange shots
    • Sabretooth: shoot left spinner, middle spinner, right orbit
    • Mystique: shoot center, then center and ramps

  • They get stunned after their life bar has gotten low, and you have 15 seconds to shoot the scoop for the Final Shot to complete the mode


QUESTS

  • Shoot Right Orbit for the chimichanga truck, shoot orange shots to collect Chimichangas and punch your chimichanga punch card

  • Once the chimichanga punch card is cashed out, QUEST lights at scoop

  • Shoot Scoop and Deadpool takes the chimichanga truck and travels through time to battle the T-Rex or Megalodon
