Pirateers Flash Review

Arrr! Everyone's thought about a life of piracy. This new flash game from Armor Games gives us all that chance.

Pirateers is a top-down shooter where you take control of a pirate ship, seeking out the ancient treasure known as Neptune's Eye. The game involves some great naval combat, humorous dialogue, and an impressive amount of metagame in the form of upgrades.

The controls are simple and easy to get the hang of, requiring just arrow keys for navigation and spacebar to launch glorious broadside cannon attacks.

Everything is well-drawn, with heaps of explosions and great sound effects. Gameplay is smooth, and I couldn't find any bugs or glitches.

The music is piratey. Very piratey. Arr, piratey.

This is a great game, which will suck away hours at a time. It gets my recommendation, for sure.
