Jersey Jack Pinball partners Scorbit global achievement platform
Jersey Jack Pinball is set to continue its long history of pinball innovation by partnering Scorbit for the Achievements platform, compatible with hundreds of games across thousands of connected pinball machines around the world.
Achievements are new goals for games that can be set up by the developers of a game, a venue owner, or an operator. There are a variety of goals that can be used, including real-time achievements that appear on the game displays, meta achievements that can transcend between games, locations, or titles, and trophy achievements that are only held by one person in the world at a time. Achievements can be based on game play, time, location, people and other users, or a number of other ingredients at the discretion of the game designers. Using Scorbit, games from the past have an entirely new twist when achievements are added to the platform.
As you play, supporting games will tell you if you have unlocked achievements on their own display, including vintage games and DMDs from the 1990s and 2000s. In addition to this real-time display, players are notified of their achievements by the Scorbit mobile app and visible on player’s feeds and profiles.This is all side-by-side with Scorbit’s already existing automated leaderboards, challenges, and real-time scoring.
Scorbit achievements will launch first on Willy Wonka and the Chocolate Factory, followed by the rest of the Jersey Jack Pinball game library.
With deeply integrated achievements designed and implemented by the creators of each game, Jersey Jack Pinball games will be even more competitive for players. Achievements appear in real-time on the game displays as well as within the Scorbit app, and are visible on Scorbit user profiles.
“We chose to work with Scorbit to launch achievements because we believe in open, accessible platforms,” said Jack Guarnieri, Founder of Jersey Jack Pinball. “Players like being able to put both their old games and their JJP games on the same system, and since our launch of online support, Scorbit has proven they are the platform to do this.”
