This is a nice update guys! Here's some of what's included:
-2 New Songs
-New Mouse Control
-Rain is off by default, you can turn it on if you would like.
-New logo
-Cleaned up code a bit, so it may run faster!
-Resetting game data now resets game settings
-Rain will actually disable when disabled (bug for some users)
-iPhone/iPad users can add the game to their homescreen for enhanced fullscreen gameplay

Note android users: Do not play on mobile chrome. It sucks at html5. Use the stock android browser, or anything else you find that works best for you!

Hello NG! Pixel Pirat3 is the result of a simple little idea in my head, and the desire to make a simple little game in HTML5 canvas. However, I challenged myself to make the game playable on almost any device. I personally have an iPad (3rd gen) and a Samsung Galaxy S III. It plays great on those. My friends have iPhones, and it plays great on those as well.

Now, onto gameplay! All you need to do is to control the red boat to avoid the cannonballs being fired from the orange boat. Every once in a while, the orange boat will fire special bonus balls (yeah, I'm so sick of "ball" jokes after making this) that either give your health back, or give you bonus points. All the scores are saved, so you can refresh/leave the page, and your scores will still be here. Play with a friend and see who can score higher!

The really cool thing about this game is that the orange boat fires the cannonballs in beat with the music. Now, you may be thinking "meh, I've seen it before", but you probably haven't seen it in a JavaScript HTML5 game that you can play on your phone via Newgrounds! It was pretty tricky to get it to work on all mobile devices. YOU HAVE NO IDEA HOW MUCH I HATE APPLE'S HTML5 RULES AFTER MAKING THIS GAME. For example, you cannot have any music start/activate/load/think /breathe WITHOUT the user activating a touch event by touching the screen. That means no random sound effects, or menu music. Period.

Anywho, I will be adding many more features to this game as the weeks go by, so leave me comments telling me what you want to see changed/added!

Have fun! (And remember, try it on your devices! Tell me how it runs!)

Meh. This game would be better with mouse controls.

Sirtopeia responds:

Added Them. Try playing again?

This is absolutely amazing.
The game is simplistic, yet challenging. I found it nice that one could heal from cannonballs using cannonballs, and the visual style of this masterpiece is nothing short of legendary.

After two rounds or so, I just started to space out and look at the pretty colors of the cannonballs being flung haphazardly about the area.

If possible, please make a game where you can just watch the cannonballs fly around to equally trance-inducing music as this.

Forever a fan, Monkeymo18.

Sirtopeia responds:

Thanks for the review! I may just add a "music visualizer" mode.

I loved it! I would love a successor to this game. I didn't like the theme of the game and I would love something different. Most likely a futuristic design. I would love to see more choices of songs and maybe an easter egg song. I would also love customizable world size, speed of cannon balls, amount of cannon balls, and speed of the boats. My only problem with this whole game is the the design of the boats and please keep it simpistic!

Sirtopeia responds:

I have a couple ideas for the future. It will still be simple, but much better gameplay.

EDIT: Wait... you didn't like the boats? why?


Rated 3.5 / 5 stars

Fun and addictive :D

But the menu is ugly :S

the rest is great ! Good game :)

Sirtopeia responds:

The menu isn't the greatest, but I liked the movement :)


Rated 2.5 / 5 stars

There's too much blur, I can't see the bullets properly, let alone precisely control the boat. seems like a fun game other than that though.

Sirtopeia responds:

Sorry about the blur. The next update will have an option to remove it.
