"Here's our bold statement of the day: Scurvy Scallywags is what every puzzle game secretly wants to be like." - Jay is Games

A musical match-3 RPG brimming with pirates, ships, loot, and more gold than you can shake your rusty hook at!

Move your pirate around the board by matching 3 or more tiles. With each match, the board shifts in the direction you swiped. Collect treasure as you visit mysterious jungle, desert, ice, and fire islands to reassemble a legendary Ultimate Sea Shanty. Fight to the death with evil pirates and monsters. Or, blast them with your arsenal of handy skills!

* Universal App & iCloud for pirates on the go! Pick up exactly where you left off on any device.
* Choose from 100 hats, shirts, swords, heads, and more to customize your pirate.
* Use special skills to dodge enemies, collect extra loot, or win epic boss battles.
* Build countless (okay, nine) different ships that improve your pirates buffs and stats.
* Complete side quests and 50 GameCenter achievements -- youll be plundering for days.
* Great replay value! Randomly generated islands keep the game going after completing the Ultimate Sea Shanty.
* Share your exploits and pictures of your pirate with built-in Facebook and Twitter.

Just a quick *bump*, this game deserves GOTY contender status. I don't know how they did it but the game is balanced to a knife edge. Nice job, guys.

All unlocked ship perks are enabled simultaneously regardless of what ship you're sailing.

That's the case on any level, if you stay away from the enemies. I was on a 'collect 300 (or was it 500?) items' quest, and I wasn't sure when I'd be seeing those items again, so I kept that level going until I had collected them all. I had a power level of 325 by the time I was done.

Did they remove swords from the store permanently? Someone said something about buying a better one further back in this thread but my store only ever shows like two hats and some pants, even after the refresh timer goes down.

Does anyone know if this game will ever get an update? There were some bugs if I remember correctly.

Playing Super Glyph Quest so much lately had me craving a more casual puzzle rpg experience, so I decided to reinstall this.

It's still one of the best match 3 hybrid games I've ever played.
I have the doubler, I've dumped countless hours into it, yet I still haven't beat it.

I know the threads old, but any pro tips to beat the game?
