In the game you play Jake Sully. Your mission is to get into your Na’vi avatar by capturing the pinball in the transporter link (which reveals a Jake Sully figurine). You must then escape the Thanator, fight the Viper Wolves, ride the great Leonoptyrix, travel through the Hallelujah mountains, and do battle with the RDA in the bumpers, before facing Colonel Miles Quaritch in his mechanical AMP Suit. If you destroy the Colonel before he destroys you, you get to access 4-ball multi-ball. Then you can score jackpots and save the Na’vi people from total destruction. Pure awesome pinball action!
The Avatar pinball was originally designed by Stern’s designers John Borg, Lonnie Ropp and Lyman Sheats, Jr. Pinball Hall of Fame member Kevin O’Connor designed the artwork. David Thiel put together the sound.
