Great game. Music is pretty good, get's a bit irritating at times, but it's nice and piratey. The controls are a bit hard to get used to, but once you get into the groove of it, it gets a lot easier. The voodoo spells and extra bullets are awesome addons to the already fun game. I love the poisonous bullets. If you're unsure, the free version offers a lot of the game to try.

At first, I thought your game was boring.
Now, that I've got the hang of it, it's amazing!!!
I've got like 1,501,000 points (lol)
My USA Itunes account ID is popblanks.
(I also reviewed the app but it's not showing right now)
I'm pretty sure that by 12~2 I can get to 2.5million. (and I just started today..)
Questions again:
1. If someone wins a prize, can they win another prize?
2. What does getting hit by bombs do? (nothing ever happened to me)
3. What happens if no one gets to 2,500,000
Also, can you please not do any updates to mess up the scoring system? (some other developers did that once)
OMG I really want that Ipad..

@Zylch Nice one, Zylch. Keep at it. And thanks for the review!

@popblanks 1,501,000 . . . were you trying to push it that close? lol Sounds like you've got the hang of it just fine. :-)

Q. 1. If someone wins a prize, can they win another prize?

A. Yes, you can theoretically win all of the prizes, but you'd have to be pretty lucky (assuming more people can achieve the cut-off scores. Right now you wouldn't have to be very lucky at all!).

Q. 2. What does getting hit by bombs do (nothing ever happened to me)?

A. Getting hit slows you down. It will slow your movement and turning. It used to be that you could sink, but testers really didn't enjoy that so we changed it. However, being slowed while a pirate ship or two is wreaking havoc or when ships get faster is usually a death knell, so there's a very big incentive to dodge enemy cannonballs and to try to stay clear of Merchant Ships. We might add a visual indicator in an update to show that you're slowed.

Q. 3. What happens if no one gets to 2,500,000?

A. I'm pretty sure someone will, but if for some reason they don't by 30th April, we'll draw the other prizes and extend the contest until someone does.

We definitely won't do any updates that trivialize peoples' hard-earned scores!

Will write a review once I can stop playing the game

I have a question in what other ways do we loose lives other than other pirating ships attack the merchant ships.Do we also loose life if we leave n number of merchant ships

Hi Rokrdude. You get a red cross for each Merchant Ship you don't sink. This includes:

1. If a Merchant Ship sails off screen, then you get a red cross. The Merchant Ship will flash just before it sails off screen to try to attract your attention.

2. If a Rival Pirate Ship sinks a Merchant Ship, then you get a red cross.

So one way or another, if you lose a Merchant Ship, you get a red cross.

Which rank are you on, popblanks? Maybe if you can move past your current rank, your increased score multiplier will help you over the line.
