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!)

My computer isn't as good as yours. Please provide options to reduce the number of particles onscreen.

You can disable the rain. Javascript is also really sensitive to different browsers. Try using ie9/10 (The only time I will endorse ie) or the latest chrome

yep. that music aint loopin. might wanna get on that.

Sirtopeia responds:

It isn't supposed to loop?


Rated 4 / 5 stars

I'm not sure if it was a glitch or not but the song reached the end and then it was silent no music. If it wasn't a glitch you should add some sort of loop on the music or have it switch to the next song. other than that good game.

Sirtopeia responds:

If your computer/device cannot run the game at 60fps, the song loses alignment with the game. Not really sure how to solve that issue....

A fun little game! I love the way it looks. But I did have the same issue as everyone else.
Bit of an [actual] eyesore. o-o'

Sirtopeia responds:

Sorry. Was it the rain? or just the pixels in general?


Rated 4.5 / 5 stars

I really enjoyed it :D It kind of hurt my eyes when it got really fast, but I liked it overall.
