Disney Online Scores with Arcade Fans with Three New Downloadable Pinball Games; Disney Game Downloads Adds to Its Lineup with Launch of Games Based on ``The Little Mermaid,'' ``Aladdin'' and ``Pirates of the Caribbean''


NORTH HOLLYWOOD, Calif. --(Business Wire)-- July 11, 2005 -- Disney Online is inviting pinball fans to dust off their flippers and get ready to ping some balls in a personal desktop arcade with the launch of "The Little Mermaid Pinball," "Aladdin Pinball," and "Pirates of the Caribbean Pinball." The three new action-packed downloadable PC games are available on July 11 at www.disneygamedownloads.com, where players can get a free trial and purchase the games for $9.99 each.



With character favorites from each popular title, all three games feature dynamic visual environments and exciting game play.

"The Little Mermaid Pinball" features Ariel and her loveable friends, Sebastian, Flounder and Scuttle, as players maneuver through three enchanting, fast-paced boards. The game showcases a variety of sea creatures, including the ominous sea witch, Ursula, who tries to steal the pinball. The game also boasts a whirlpool, coral lanes that light up and players can even try to unlock King Triton's palace.


"Aladdin Pinball" is a high-speed game set in the magical land of Agrabah. Players join their favorite characters from the film, Aladdin and Princess Jasmine, for pinball fun on three exciting boards. Players can experience the excitement of the city marketplace as they knock down scimitars or hit pots and watermelons. They can also enter the Cave of Wonders and aim for the magic lamp to unlock the multi-ball feature for bonus points, or move into the Royal Palace to knock down Jafar and save Princess Jasmine.

"Pirates of the Caribbean Pinball" is an adventure game featuring three action-packed boards set on the high seas. Players can board the cursed ship armed with their cannonballs to destroy skeletons and knock down enemy pirates. They can then load their cannon for a fierce battle of ships against the Pirates of Skull Island in an exciting mini-game, while also aiming their cannonball toward the arrows to discover hidden treasure, secrets and bonus points.
