Pocket Pirates! is an action platformer about fighting your friends and stealing their gold.
In Pocket Pirates! Up to 4 players fights each other in crazy fast battles across 6 colorful stages. Your goal is to collect more gold coins than your friends, grabbing weapons from treaure chests to help you protect your booty until the end of the match.
The more you play, the more weapons and stages you unlock. Crazy weapons as the Crab Rider or the Hurdy-Gurdy are hard to get but will made the battles even more fun.
In Story Mode, you get to play a single player campaign, jumping on the hat of legendary buccaneer Captain Jota Flint, as he sail the seas looking for his missing crew, finding himself trapped in the middle of an unexpected and bigger conflict.
Pocket Pirates! is the product of over 9 months of work. I have made several web games before, including A Pretty Odd Bunny, which was featured on Gamejolt and Newgrounds. But this will be my first fully fletched PC release. I have worked on it with a single goal in mind: Making a fun little experience for everyone.
After this time, I think I'm getting close to complete it.
Main game have:
+ 6 Stages
+ Over 8 weapons to unlock
+ Full gamepad support for local multiplayer action
and Story Mode have:
+ 11 Chapters
+ A fully fletched story inspired by classic pirate tales and fun sea adventures.
+ 10 quirky Boss fights with individual challenges
+ 2 Mini games
+ And the possibility of more tales starring the rest of the crew.
Gameplay in Pocket Pirates! has been designed to be fun and fast. I have been a fan of old school nintendo two-players games since I was a child and I wanted to create a love letter to those classics without going the fully retro route on it.
Pocket Pirates! is not a revolutionary game by any means, it doesn't have outstanding graphics or an unique and addictive gameplay (Well, maybe a little addictive but not the most). Nevertheless, this is a game made for pure love and passion. It is meant to give you a compelling single player experience and also a place to have fun with your friends.
I hope you find this little adventure interesting and I hope to see you soon with more updates. The goal is to put something playable in your hand in the near future.
