[This unedited press release is made available courtesy of Gamasutra and its partnership with notable game PR-related resource GamesPress.]

Singapore, SG - February 10, 2013 - Just in time for the Chinese New Year and the Year of the Snake, GamesWarp is pleased to announce the release of Pachinko Parlor on Facebook, currently accessible via https://apps.facebook.com/gwpachinko/.

Pachinko Parlor is an action-casino game that simulates the many varied and colorful Pachinko mechanical machines found widespread in Japan. A favorite recreational gaming pastime of the Japanese, this pinball-like game reliant on gravity and a dash of luck has been successfully translated to the Facebook platform in Pachinko Parlor. There is also the anticipated addition of modern day Jackpot game elements, triggered by balls falling into the bonus traps found in each hand-crafted machine. This is a feature that will be sure to please players who love pinball and jackpot action.

The player starts off by selecting a machine to play from the Lobby and will be issued a starting bonus of GamesWarp (GW) Coins and Pachinko Balls. Once at a machine, he can start shooting balls by adjusting the power knob to control the power of each shot. Balls will keep coming out at a constant rate, and it will be up to the player to adjust the power knob to hopefully guide the Pachinko balls into the 5 bonus traps found in each machine. The Jackpot starts spinning whenever a ball enters a bonus trap, and it is this way that the player can win even more GW Coins.

Pachinko Parlor may have launched with eight fun machines, but GamesWarp will be adding many more machines over the life of the game. Already slated for release is Machine #9: Nine Candles on February 11, 2013, and Machine #10: Avian Wonder some time later this week. Subsequent updates concerning new machines and features will be put up at https://www.facebook.com/PachinkoParlorCommunity. The "press release kit" is also available as a series of screenshots for download or sharing at the Community Page on Facebook.

Pachinko Parlor is currently available on Facebook, with new features planned to be released later sometime in the 1st QTR of 2013. The game is also planned for other platforms at a later date in 2013.
