Nice find, Daver! I once tried to do that objective you're on and the Slimer achievement in one go . . . practically impossible ;-)

Haha yeah I was thinking about trying to do that too but may have to hold off on that one!
I think I am going to have to load this on to the iPads at work I'm really enjoying it I feel like my coworkers will be hooked instantly!

Game Impressions

I hate arcade game arhat require dexterity, and a steady hand. I play in moving vehicle and such are impossible. This game is so freakin cool, I love it anyway. Simple mechanics, spot on controls, crisp colorful graphics... This is a steal at the price. Buy it now before the devs discover how to raise the prices.

Is epic win. Arrrrrrr!

Hi guys,

Version 1.0.1 is now available. You can now switch the controls from left to right via the pause menu. The tutorial has been updated thanks to user feedback and a bug with the Game Center leaderboard view was fixed.

If you haven't already, come on over and join the Cutlass Cove 'Rogues of the Sea' contest.

@Werechihuahua I'm glad you're enjoying it!

Really enjoying this game and appreciate the new option to flip the controls and perspective.

Cutlass Cove is definitely worthwhile and hope it gets the attention/success it deserves.

True. Cutlass Cove is a solid Ship Shooting game. Now the game is even better with the new controls and a more detailed tutorial for beginners.

Movement controls?

I don't know if it's just me or my iPad 3, but I have the 1.01 version, iOS 5.1, and I just cannot steer the ship. I'm tapping on the wheel (and not dragging or rotating) but it doesn't seem to turn the ship at all.

Will have to get a refund if I can't get this fixed - just impossible to play if steering is not working.

@Sanjuro333 I have the exact same setup as you with no problems. I will PM you for further details so I can narrow down the problem and get you a fix.


Sanjuro is back on the high seas. Best of luck in the contest!
